What can I expect? I honestly have no idea and that's half the fun! That and the fact that there will be some "hardcore bingo" going down. For any of you slackers who didn't buy tickets soon enough, they're still selling them at the door for $15.
Stand Up Paddleboarding + Margaritas? Yep, this is probably one of the coolest jobs in the world. Now we just need to convince them to get Living Social wetsuits for the November + December trips!
Would love to hear what you guys are up to this weekend!
