Every year following Fantasy Fest an increasingly mature group of Jimmy Buffett fans meet in Key West. Its part of Jimmy Buffetts worldwide fan clubs the "Parrot Heads". They refer to this annual event as "The Meeting of the Minds". The streets of Key West are just recovering from the week long Fantasy Fest but this crowd seems much more focused and much less bawdy.
This year 2011, marked the 20th Anniversary of the "Meeting" and there was a surprise guest -- Jimmy Buffett himself. He entertained the faithful fans for 75 minutes on Duval Street in perfect Fall weather.
Jimmy pointed out that the day (November 4th) marked the 40th anniversary of Jimmy and Jerry Jeff's first arrival in Key West.
It was a very good day.
