    Default Sammy's Birthday Bash 2012

    Too soon to start this thread?

    Considering I just got MY email notificaton telling me I got tickets for the Thursday (11th) show, I think not!

    I'm WHOLLY stoked about this trip: This'll be my FIRST Birthday Bash (my work schedule NEVER allowed it before)...and I haven't been to down to Cabo since 1997! I know it's not a "sleepy town" anymore, but it's still gonna be one hell of a week.

    Both times I've been to Cabo were a loooong time ago ('94 and '97), and both times were in late April to mid-May.

    The gf and I are gonna be staying at one of the Riu resorts. We've always had very good experiences with Riu half a dozen times throughout Mexico and the Caribbean.

    ...so who else is in and who's gonna organize our little corner of it?

    Congratulations! Awesome!

    I wish I could. What really kicks me in the balls over this and other acts is that in the summer of 1990 I decided not to buy tickets for Stevie Ray Vaughn this time and see the next one. Obviously, there was no "next one". I never got to see Clarence Clemons either for the same friggin reason.

    If you can swing it, do it! Don't let the opportunity pass you by!

    I feel for ya concerning SRV.

    I had just moved to the DFW area for college (TCU) in the fall of '89, and was fortunate enough to catch two local gigs of his in early to mid-1990. Actually got to meet him and shake his hand the second go-round.

    With his untimely passing, they literally became two nights that changed my life in relation to guitar-playing and music.

    Jeff - Did they pull the winners for all days? I put my name in for the Saturday show, but no e-mail.

    Oh, well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    We arrive Friday. I'll send you a message as soon as we get details nailed down. We HAVE to meet up down there.

    Pretty sure all the shows were drawn at the same time. I signed up for Tues/Thurs/Sat nights. I guess the only other option would be to check your credit card account to see if the tix have been charged.


    Then again, I'd NEVER thought we were gonna get tix to any of the nights based on some of the stories over at Redrocker.com. That said, Shels and I had already decided that we were gonna head down there anyway.


    ...and we ABSOLUTELY have to hook up for cocktails/dinner/etc. down there. We're not flying out until Sunday (14th), so we have two full days to get this accomplished.

    Spectacular. Plan nothing for Saturday. We're road tripping. We'll show you two the Baja like it's meant to be seen.

    Done and done!

    Only other things we've got planned are the Bash show Thursday night, bouncing around downtown one day, and one day of golf...and that's it.

    Otherwise, it's sun, sand, water, and cocktails (not necessarily in that order).

    ...also staying at the Palace, 5150c. This'll be our 5th excursion around the lower latitudes staying at a RIU property...and we've yet to be anything but thrilled with our accomodations.

    I guess we've got a (non-VH) links date to plan.

    I am going with 5 friends. Got 2 tickets to the 9th and 4 tickets to the 11th.

    So if anyone ends up with an extra for the 11th let me know - we will make it worth you time!

    Very excited to be making the bash this year!!!!
