The BIG weekend in July ... the 7th and 8th?
So for the first year I am trying out a new approach. After this last memorial day debacle (and like was already talked about the island has been going this way for the last 5 years of being filled with "JV's" who like to fight, and MASS amounts of dudes) I figured I would not try to beat them, but to outsmart them.
So I have some very good friends coming up from Tampa (I used to live there) and they have never been to ohio or Cleveland, and I have preached to them about the bay and how it is comparable in some regards to the Keys and Sarasota - siesta key (where we used to frequent) so they will be in town here for like 8 days. But I figured to show them a good weekend, and to do what we are used to doing in Florida which was laid back beach music and happy fun people, the 4th was not the best time to go. Why would I want to show them what "trash" looks like and show them how "ohio's finest JV's" act and look like. They will never come back! LOL
So I am thinking that many of the "JV's" will be thinking the same thing as they always do for every big weekend .."lets go up to the island, there will be tons of girls there" and thus the island will be the same as it always is on the big weekend -- annoying. Angry idiots who cant handle their liquor.
Now if ya ask me, I would rather hang out in the rearB then have to deal with that .. well actually, those 2 atmospheres are pretty much the same! JUUUUST terrible.
So in an attempt to show the island in its tru light, we would go the weekend after in hoped that all the amatuers will be gone -- now I know while it willbe a busy weekend anyways, I have a hard time believing it will be the same as the 4th. Which as discussed, if it is anything like memorial day, I can do without!
So what ya think... good planning? I think so ...
P.S. Thanks again Mark! Great timing on the hotel room!
