As we all know, most of us are turning 60 this year. Our 60th birthday is a very special occasion. It would be fun to celebrate with friends from the past and present. It will also be fun to make new friends. It has been nice speaking with classmates and catching up with people. We have about 20 people who are on board. It would be nice to have 60 people or more. Peter and I have chosen to have the party at the Margaritaville Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida. This is a new hotel on a beautiful beach. It is in a safe area with a 3-mile walkway along the beach. There is plenty to do, and you do not need a car.
The closest airport is Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale. There is a shuttle bus at the airport, or you can rent a car if you prefer.
Our birthday party will be on October 28th to October 30th, 2016. You can come earlier if you wish. There may be a golf outing on Friday or Saturday. We plan to meet at the 5’oclock Somewhere bar on Friday night, then a stroll on the beach. Saturday will be a day at the beach or you could take the water taxi to South Beach and other parts of Miami. We are planning an official birthday party for Saturday evening at the hotel. They will give us a banquet room on the 11th floor if we have enough people. On Sunday, we can meet for brunch.
All rooms at the hotel have a water view (either the ocean or the intracoastal waterway) and a balcony. We have reserved a discount code for the Horace Greeley party. Our discount code is: Fins15. This code gives us 15% off the prevailing rate. All rooms are on the 11th floor and above. Suites and larger rooms are also available. There is no deposit to book your room, so we encourage you to book right away. You will be charged for the room if you cancel your reservation within 72 hours of your arrival date. You will not be charged for the room until you arrive.
To make a reservation, please call the hotel at (954) 874-4444. You can also book online.
We are providing a list of hotels in the Hollywood Beach area that are less expensive. You would have to contact these hotels directly. If interested, please call soon as these hotels seem to fill up faster.
