Right now there are two classes of people: those with tickets for tomorrow nights Bon Jovi concert and those without. Ticket holders are understandably excited; they get to see ol Jon Bon make bedroom eyes at the audience -- thousands of pairs of panties will be dampened in unison.
But what about the group which didnt shell out between $19.50 and $132.50 for a ticket, $40 for a collectors tee shirt, and another $40 for stadium snacks? Well call them the Recession Savvy Group, or RSG. The RSG understands economic terminology like stagflation, and theyve already begun squirreling their nuts away for a long, cold winter. But even though the RSG is more cautious with its spending than the ticket holders, dont be misled: The RSG still likes to rock the fuck out. Thats why youll find them at Gatsbys (901 Village Boulevard, West Palm Beach) tonight, holding their cell phones up for Slippery When Wet, the officially authorized Bon Jovi Tribute band. Yes! The cover is only ten bucks and there is no nosebleed section, just a lot of great food, yummy drinks, good people, and a bitchin band headed up by a guy who kinda looks like Jon Bon -- if you squint. Who said that tough times, have to be? RSVP at 561-686-7300, and check out the menu at www.gatsbysfl.com.
