Re: Tedeschi Trucks Band Blues Fest in St. Pete 1/20/13
St Pete is more tolerant than its surrounding communities in many respects. Its nice.
I know that's real! I visit St Pete regularly; lots of good folks there.
The flip side: Mizner Park used to be okay... if you didn't have tickets, you could hang with a cooler in the wide median and listen to bands outside the gate, enjoying your picinic and beverages. Then they changed their rules (for a Further show as I recall
), and outside food / drink were no longer permitted. Turns out they couldn't restrict the crowd to the wine sipping chino / sweater set. Those damn hippies started hanging out and drinking their fancy beer and dancing and stuff like that
... can't have that in Boca!
Sorry to foment the negativity... I get a little annoyed at the prevailing mindset here on the SE coast.
