Happy Friday Parrot Heads!
We have a whole bunch of news & some very important updates today so I’ll get right into things:
Club Meeting This Saturday, May 19
It’s shaping up to be a wet weekend, so why not stay indoors with your Parrot Head friends? Tomorrow night is our monthly club meeting at Hoppers so we hope to see you there! We should have live music this month, so what better way to enjoy your Saturday night? Here’s what you need to know about this month’s phlocking:
Bring Money for your Rockies Margaritaville Night Tickets!
Michael Arthur has our tickets reserved with the Rockies so we just need to collect the cash and pick up our tickets. Tickets for the Margaritaville Night package are $50, so if you signed up to get tickets please plan on paying Mike at the meeting. If you won’t be at the meeting, or worse, if you didn’t sign up for tickets yet, keep reading. We have more on the Margaritaville Night further down in the email that will address those questions. But if you signed up for tickets & will be there Saturday, bring your payment.
Pick up PWAP tickets; Drop off PWAP donations
If you haven’t gotten your tickets for our July 21 Party With a Purpose, you can purchase them from Lee Grodsky Saturday night. Don’t procrastinate any longer! After this, there is just one more meeting to buy tickets and there is no guarantee they will still be available. Tickets are $25. Also, if you have any items to donate to our PWAP silent auction or raffle, you can drop them off with Lee & Robin on Saturday. If you missed our previous emails & don’t know what PWAP is all about, reach out & I’ll send you the full details.
This Month’s Charity: the Melanoma Research Foundation
This month our raffle is for the Melanoma Research Foundation and their Denver Miles for Melanoma walk. Melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer that affects way too many people, including some of our very own friends and family. This organization is devoted to research, prevention, treatment, and eventually finding a cure. I know how much us Parrot Heads love fun in the sun, so bring a few extra bucks to support this cause!
Finally, we’ll also be collecting non-perishable food, peanut butter & pop-tops as usual… so bring whatever you’ve got. We’ll see you there!
Rockies Margaritaville Night: Ticket Update
Right now we have 50 Parrot Heads joining us for Margaritaville Night at Coors Field on Saturday, June 9. If you reserved your ticket with Mike Arthur, the cost is $50/each, and we need to collect that money ASAP so we can get the tickets. Please cash or a check to the meeting Saturday to pay for your tickets, or you can mail your payment to Mike. Email me for Mike’s mailing address.
Also if you reserved tickets, Mike needs to know your t-shirt size! Send an email* to Mike to give him your sizes. You can also email Mike your address so he can mail your tickets, or if you want to discuss picking them up, or if you have any other questions about your tickets.
*Since we don’t want to share Mike’s personal address or email on the web, if you don’t have the info, please contact and I’ll get you in touch with him.
Buffett & the Eagles Pre-Show Event Updates
We’ve confirmed details on the other bar offering Parrot Heads some pre-show specials on the day of the Eagles Buffett show. If you won’t make it to Sports Column to see Thom & Coley before the show, we have another option for you to have some food & fun. Here are the details:
Parrot Head Pre-Show Phlocking at Larimer Beer Hall
Thursday, June 28 from 2pm to 7pm
Larimer Beer Hall, 2012 Larimer St, Denver
Larimer Beer Hall is happy to offer Parrot Heads some great specials on the day of the Eagles show! Stop by their bar just 2 blocks from the stadium before the show and enjoy happy hour 2-for-1 drafts, $3 Landsharks and a $5 cheeseburger special. They will have the Margaritaville Girls there, and will be giving away 2 prize packs! They also have a full bar if you prefer boat drinks or margaritas over a beer. There is no cost for this event, so stop by Larimer Beer Hall if you are looking for some food & fun before the concert.
Remember, we still have the 2 events below happening before the Eagles/Buffett show, so you have lots of fun to choose from. Or be like me and just plan on doing them all!
Parrot Head Concert-Eve Party at Sports Column
Wednesday, June 27 starting at 6:00 pm
Sports Column, 1930 Blake St, Denver
Come spend the night before the concert with your Colorado Parrot Head friends and with Parrot Heads from out of town! Thom Shepherd and Coley McCabe are scheduled to perform, and admission is $10 (for the band.) Food and drinks are not included but Sports Column will have plenty of both, so come down for dinner, drinks, and a fun night with some great music!
Pre-Concert “Tailgate” Party at Sports Column
Thursday, June 28 from 11 am until showtime
Sports Column, 1930 Blake St, Denver
Join the party at Sports Column in LoDo again on the day of the Eagles/Buffett show concert. The party will be up on the rooftop, where you can enjoy the sunshine and the downtown views. Thom and Coley are scheduled to perform in the afternoon, and there will be a full menu of food and drink for purchase to enjoy while you fuel up for the show. Admission for this pre-show event is $20 (again to pay the musicians) and while it doesn’t include your food or drink, for a full day of music and fun it’s worth it.
That’s all the news I can fit in this update. For more info, come to our meeting Saturday. I hope to see you all there!
