Comedy Festival - Polar Vortex Tent

OK - who is going? What comedy shows are you going to see?

Who is going to the Polar Vortex Tent? Friday? Saturday? Both?

We are going to see Michael Ian Black On Saturday. I hope to hit the tent on both Friday and Saturday, but Saturday for sure after dinner (after the show).

Sorry, Jeff, but because of your D-E status, I can't resist this. We would have loved to join up with you last Fri and/or Sat, but we were on a beach in Akumal, drinking some of that tequila we had discussed previously, and under a gorgeous full moon. Priorities, no?

Pretty funny - my son was actually in Playa del Carmen with his mother also. Hope you got to swim with the turtles while I was in fully winter clothing.

Comedy show was disappointing, but tent was fun.

playaguy--you just filled me with travel envy. We love Akumal. We've spent many a perfect day snorkeling, lounging, and imbibing there. Sigh.....

Alas, we should have scheduled our Akumal trip this year instead of last year. Oh how I want to go back. I loved it down there. (yes, yes, I know I am highjacking the post with talk of Akumal). :)

Sometime we should have a Michigan meet-up in Akumal! Seems like a lot of us enjoy going there.

And talk about bad timing--this is the first winter in over a decade I did not schedule a tropical vacation for us. We're saving up for a expensive summer trip to the PNW and Western Canada. I may never hear the end of that decision!

And back to the comedy festival--what a cool idea to bring people to TC! Spouse and I both said that would be a perfect winter get-away when we've launched the girl into college.

Sorry the comedy show was disappointing, Jeff. And while we didn't make it to the Polar Vortex Tent, the Solar Vortex Cabana was stunning! (Sorry, I just had to get that in) Now it's on to Restaurant Week here in TC, I guess...I'm sure it will be Muy Sabrosa! And back to comedy for a sec - I see there's what sounds like a good lineup at Leelanau Sands, March 28. Chris Kattan, Tim Meadows, Rob Schneider. Maybe that one will be better....

We did get to see the Ice Caves in Northport - which were cool.

Yes, and good timing on that, fyi. Pretty much over now with the increase of open water.
