A Weekend in South Philly part 2

Aug 28, 2005, 11:52 PM EDT

I purchased second row tickets to the And1 Mix Tape Tour months ago.  So when I realized that all of my buddies were going to the Jimmy Buffett concert across the street on the same night, I decided to tailgate all day with the Parrot heads.  It was a long and wet day but the Buffett faithful didn’t let it damper their spirits.  I’ve seen Buffett many times in Camden and feel like the scene at CBP was a little toned down and the crowd seemed a little older than usual.  It probably had something to do with the outrageous face value on some of the tickets.  I wasn’t really planning on going to Buffett, but tickets were going for far below face value and I got a ticket on the field which had a face value of 88 bucks for 40.  I watched the first half of And1 at the Wach and then bolted across the street to drink some pina coladas.
