    Gonna watch the video in a minute. Still looks like a fun guy to hand out with, and Cabo San Lucas is still on my list of "must see" holiday destinations!

    Watched the video, and man, not too shabby for a "sleepy town south of the border!"
    Looks like a ton of fun. Duh.

    I really liked the "55" performance at about the 15 min. mark. Loved how it sounded heavier with the low E chugging, during the verses.

    It is definitely a cool place. I spent a week there back in 1995 with my wife. We drove there from Connecticut. Stopped in Las Vegas on the way and got married and spent our honeymoon in Cabo. The drive through Baja was memorable for sure. Some of the sketchiest roads and towns I've ever been to but also some of the most beautiful coast line. At that time it was a shrine to all things Van Halen. All the wait staff wore black or white polo shirts with the Van Halen logo embroidered on the sleeves. Bronze busts of the band at the entrance to the club, guitars handing on the walls, pictures of the band everywhere. We pretty much ate lunch and dinner at the club every day we were there. Got to know the staff pretty well and had the marker plate from our van hung on the wall above the bar. The plate number is VANHLN. If any of you make it down there you'll see it with about 100 or so there Van Halen/Hagar related plates.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    That's an awesome story!

    Do it. Just do it. The place is amazing. Just don't expect a sleepy little town any more.

    Everything I've seen and heard about Cabo has been positive, and the climate & scenery are almost beyond belief. I'll get there!

    Been there three times:

    '94 in April for the bar anniversary - Did the sickman thing and drove with a buddy from DFW to Phoenix, picked up a second friend, then drove on to San Diego and down through Baja. Absolutely one of the best two-week stretches of life I've ever experienced.

    '99 in April for the bar anniversary

    '12 in October for Sam's Birthday Bash - I was fortunate enough to draw tickets for two nights, so I spent a week down there with my (now) second wife. It was interesting to see all the changes (re: Americanization) in the CSL/SJC area between '99 and '12.

    What a life the man has had and continues to have. Been on it with him for close to forty years.

    Cheers Sam!
