I was wondering if you all could please help me pull off somewhat of a surprise party for Ben! Ben's birthday is May 7th, smack dab in the middle of the week! Because of that, we will be having a BEACH PARTY ON MAY 3!
I've told him that we were meeting up with four friends at the beach for a nice beach day on Saturday, May 3. Here's where you come in! Around 11 to noon, please start showing up, ready to celebrate and have a good time! I'm envisioning a flash-mobby style, where people just "happen" to show up to the pavilion where I am hoping to have set up as party central. Ben will be totally surprised, and it will make his DAY to see you all there!
I'll supply sandwiches and cake, so please feel free to bring food, soda, snacks, and/or whatever beverage you would like to drink! Since it is on the beach, we have to be a bit modest with our drinks, but pouring them into water bottles or Tervis cups has worked really well in the past! Or bringing a bag or cooler and a benign/ clever container to pour your drinks into is fine. Please, though no glass containers! Technically, this park says "No" to alcoholic beverages. PLEASE BE DISCRETE! Dustin, one of my other partners in crime, will be bringing ladders, a volleyball, beanbag toss, and a few other picnic-y games. He is going to be bringing the cake and sandwiches so that Ben doesn't get wind of a party!
Please note that the list above is NOT an exhaustive/ exclusive list! Kids, spouses, significant others are welcome! The location does not take reservations and is first-come-first serve. Parking is available at nearby metered lots. I will plan on being there around 9 or 10 to secure the location, which will be:
Crescent Beach Family Park
1100 Estero Blvd
Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931
So, please, come out, have fun, and get ready to celebrate Benny's 28th!!
OH! And please remember-- It is a SURPRISE, so DO NOT mention it to Benny or add him to the chat!! I've "temporarily" disabled his ability to get on Meet Up (only temporarily since it's just for the next two weekends!!), so let's draw in as many people as possible!!
