Hello Parrot Heads!
Meeting of the Minds 2017 has come and gone with some wonderful memories remaining of all the great times we had down in Key West. I wanted to take a few moments during the holidays to recap the event and talk about what is ahead for 2018. Sorry if this is a long read but I want to thank many people for making everything happen this year!
“We’re Still Here” was our event name this year and was a phrase that summed up the 2017 Meeting of the Minds event in general after Hurricane Irma came through Florida and left a path of destruction in many areas. We were there and thankfully Key West was spared major damage unlike many neighbors in most all other directions. The 26th Annual Meeting of the Minds was down in attendance a bit as some folks elected to stay home after a huge sell-out year in 2016 with the 25th annual happenings. Some of our people who wanted to come this year lost their accommodations up the keys and we missed you all! The 2017 concert schedule had Jimmy Buffett taking part of the band out to Hawaii for a show during MOTM and some of the normal MOTM crowd followed him out there… We did however have a nice crowd on hand and we all had a great time at the Casa Marina! Our crowd also filled Duval Street on Friday for two blocks solid as they enjoyed three great bands!

It’s hard to believe that December is upon us and it’s time to unpack those fun Christmas sweaters and head out for holiday parties. We hope that you will start your December fun with us on Friday, December 1st from 7:00-9:00 pm at the E-Club. This party will be special since Barefoot Wade will be joining us and providing music for the evening. Matt and the E-Club will be providing free food and some great drink specials. We’ll be raising money for domestic violence with our 50/50 drawing and I’m pretty sure there will be a prize for the “BEST” Christmas sweater or attire. We’ll also be celebrating our REPEAT 1st place victory in the EI Christmas Parade for Non-Profits. Come on out and be a part of the best “Party with a Purpose” Group in Emerald Isle!! See ya there……
