April Phlocking – April 5, 2019

Spring has sprung and it’s time for our monthly Phlocking on Friday, April 5th from 7:00-9:00pm.  As always, we will gather at the E-CLub for some Parrothead Phun!! April is Autism Awareness Month and while we “Party with a Purpose”, we will be raising money for The Crystal Coast Autism Center. We will have Autism Awareness bracelets available for a small donation and our 50/50 drawing will also benefit The Crystal Coast Autism Center. Matt will be providing free food, drink specials and music for our listening pleasure. The weather is improving everyday, so hopefully we can enjoy the outside area and celebrate the end of winter. Come out and help us welcome Spring and raise some money for a GREAT CAUSE!!


The Emerald Isle Parrot Heads would like to invite you to join us for another day of fun to support a great cause. Come out and watch the 2019 Super Bowl and cheer on the team of your choosing or just choose the best commercial. We will be hosting a SOUPER BOWL PARTY at Island Time Tavern on Sunday, February 3rd from 4:40pm until the big game is done. Please plan to bring your favorite SOUP (soup, stew or chili), appetizers or dessert to share. There will be drink specials and some fun and games. Feel free to wear your favorite team jersey or fan attire, even if they didn’t make it to the big game. Non-perishable foods and cash donations will be collected on the day of the event to benefit a local soup kitchen. Come out and Phlock with your Phriends!  Sign-up sheets will be available at the February Phlocking (2/2/19) and at Island Time Tavern or you can just show up the day of the event.  Look for the event posting on Facebook.

PHreedom PHlocking July 6, 2018

The 4th of July will be behind us, but let’s keep out the RED, WHITE and BLUE for a few more days and celebrate the GREATNESS of the USA!! The EIPHC will honor our country and patriotism during our July Phlocking on July 6, 2018 from 7-9 pm at the E-Club. We all know what a GREAT country we live in, so let’s forget about all things political and come together to celebrate in the traditional Parrot Head way….by Partying with a Purpose!! We will celebrate our country’s 242nd birthday and show our loyalty by donning our best PATRIOTIC gear and getting back to Making America Great by helping others!! Our 50/50 raffle will be donated to A Second Helping – Emerald Isle. This fantastic organization collects leftover food from vacationers as they leave the island on Saturdays and Sundays. Collected food items are then distributed to the needy in our area. You can continue to help by spreading the word that DROP OFF LOCATIONS AND TIMES ARE: Bert’s Surf Shop (across the street under the tent) 8:00am-11:00am or at Stir it Up Coffee 7:00am-11:00am every weekend. VOLUNTEERS are always needed and appreciated so you can sign up at Matt will be providing the free food and drink specials that we all look forward to each month and we should have a few “out of town friends” to join our celebration of AMERICA. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
