Growing up in Louisiana my family would often pile into the station wagon for day or weekend getaways. The Gulf Coast offered, and still does, plenty of activities and entertainment for all ages. There was one town in particular that owned my pre-teen heart, Gulf Shores, Alabama. There always seemed to be something fun going on, like a constant party. I haven’t been back since I was a kid, but apparently the good-time spirit is still alive and well in Gulf Shores, just as I remember.
LuLu’s at Homeport Marina is hosting the First Annual Crazy Sista Beach Party November 1-3, 2013 and it sounds like a blast. So much that I wish I could attend. So, what exactly does this festive weekend entail?
Music. You can always count on good music in the Deep South. So far, the line-up includes Grammy Award winners Tedeschi Trucks Band and Marcia Ball as well as Shawna P & The EarthFunk Tribe, Adam Holt & Jillian Jensen, Joyful’s Spirit of New Orleans Choir, Charmaine Neville, Eric Lindell, Larkin Poe, Sirius Plan featuring Donna Hall of Wet Willie, plus others.
Hotel packages. Wondering where to stay? Hotel packages are available at Hampton Inn Suites on the Beach, Holiday Inn Express, Hilton Garden Inn (Orange Beach), Brett Robinson Rentals, Courtyard by Marriott, Island House Hotel, Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals and Meyer Vacation Rentals.
Activities. The Beach Party will also include massage booths, shopping opportunities by female artisans, and cooking demos from Lucy Buffett, LuLu’s Executive Chef Dylan Feenker, and new Lucy B Goode Chef Randall Baldwin (Yum!).
Food. If you go…please, please eat at LuLu’s so I can live vicariously through you. I’d especially like you to try…the Cheeseburger in Paradise (Crazy Sista’s Version), Lulu’s Famous Seafood Gumbo, and Fried Green Tomatoes. (Mouth watering!)
Come one, come all. Turn this into a girls’ weekend or even a couple getaway. This party isn’t just for the ladies.
Cost. Weekend tickets cost $50 for general admission (includes t-shirt and ticket to the 3-day event) or $150 VIP (includes goodie bag, ticket, and VIP viewing area). You can grab your tickets online or in LuLu’s Gift Shop.
It’s happening no matter what. Crazy Sista Beach Party events are scheduled rain or shine. Have fun!
