This past weekend, my husband and I were very fortunate to be invited to the…
Is it any surprise that today’s Toasting Music selection is Come Monday by Jimmy Buffett? I know it’s a little cheesy and predictable, but it really is a wonderful, classic song and there really is something special about the famed annual Labor Day weekend show. I don’t know what it is, but there’s definitely something special about it.
A few years ago, my husband and I were back in DC for my sister’s wedding and we were able to see the Labor Day weekend show in Bristow, VA. Most Parrothead purists will be quick to bring forth a laundry list of complaints about this venue–but all that negativity seemed to disappear when Jimmy hit the stage and released the magic of Labor Day weekend. I’ve been to many Buffett shows through the years, and this one will always stand out as one of the best.
Unfortunately, I could not find a video of “Come Monday” from the actual show that we attended, BUT I did find one from 2011. This is a great video–the videographer was able to capture someone raising their glass to Labor Day, and it also includes Jimmy telling a nostalgic story of the old, beloved Georgetown venue -The Cellar Door.
Happy Labor Day everyone! Here’s to great music, great friends, and making time for relaxing and enjoying it all!
