Tampa Bay Parrot Head Club's
Who? The Tampa Bay Parrot Heads in Paradise Club is a diversified group - well, a little more than a "group" with over 500 active members who are drawn to the tropical music & laid back lifestyle suggested by Jimmy’s music. Although we are not a "fan" club, we are certainly all fans of his music - it is our common bond. Our age range spans six decades & our roster includes everyone from aerobic instructors to zoologists, students to teachers, the guy who flips the cheeseburgers to the lady who owns the burger stand, and all in between.
WHAT? Well the rumors are true. In the last 16 years we have refined and redefined the word party. We have fun whether it’s at our meetings, community projects or informal get-togethers. Most importantly, we pride ourselves on making a difference in our world. We were voted "Volunteer Club of the Year" by Lowry Park Zoo & "Community Service Organization of the Year" by Keep Hillsborough County Beautiful. We perform beach clean-ups, volunteer at zoo and other functions and sponsor an Environmental Scholarship at the University of South Florida. We support: Save the Manatee Club, Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Tampa Bay Watch, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, USF Endowment for Marine Sciences, Florida Parrot Rescue and many, many more.
WHERE? Whiskey Joe’s is located on the south side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, near Ben T. Davis Beach: 7720 West Courtney Campbell Causeway, Tampa, FL 33607-1430. Phone: (813) 281-0407.
WHEN? The "ODD" (being the odd birds that we are), 1st, 3rd and 5th (when it occurs) Wednesdays of each month from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. About 200 members show up at the "meetings" (if you can call them that) for news about club activities, raffles, dancing to Bubba’s music, laughter, hugs, Teeeeeam Drinks and Whiskey Joe's great atmosphere.
WHY? If any of the following unruffles your feathers: a chance to get involved with cool community projects and have a blast doing it, making new "Friends for Life," no dress code, great trips like the National Parrot Head Convention in Key West or a Mexico cruise, or attending the trop-rock festival Music On The Bay, then hey, you’re a Parrot Head! Until we meet again . . . FINNNNNNNNS UP!!!
