Went to a party and a golf tournament broke out

Over 191,000 people attended the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Friday.  I'm guessing 150,000 or so don't even know what a bogey is.

Who cares.

It's February and 80 degrees in Phoenix.  White pants for women are in, and you don't have to know anything about golf to have a good time at this event.  To go from ski boots and layers to shorts and flip flops.  Nobody was complaining here. 

This was the second time I've attended this event and each one was a memorable one.  We were fortunate to have passes to a corporate tent that lines the 18th fairway.  Only the water hazard on the left side of the fairway separated us from the golfers.  The scoreboard was straight across from us so we knew how everyone was doing.

We had our choice of all the food and drink we wanted, we even had access to Jello Shooters.  They had a selfie station with different contraptions you could use in the photo op.  Young, beautiful women were there to deliver drinks, you could learn a lesson on customer service here.

How big is it?  The wait for the Uber ride only took an hour, people were throwing up in line, there were fights, we even got to watch movies and listen to music while we stood in line.  I don't like rap but it didn't matter on this day.  What a great weekend to celebrate the Super Bowl.

Every year they set records for attendance.  It's not hard to figure out why.  Add this to your bucket list.

This is the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
