We're sure some of our readers are dying to wear their snakeskin pants on a boat, and that's why we are thrilled to alert you to the perfect opportunity to do so. Poison frontman and reality TV whore, Bret Michaels will be embarking on a rockin cruise from Miami to Cozumel and back next November, and for a bit of cash, you can hop on board with him for what he promises will be an "epic" voyage -- dare we say a Rock of Love... Boat. Though your meals will be included while on board, there are a few things we think you should bring, in addition to the pants, to ensure you'll be rocking to the max.


To slather on your circa 1987 Poison tatt... and the remainder of your butt cheeks.

A bottle of Jack Daniels

Especially if you're prone to seasickness, because you'll look like a wimp if you're puking uncontrollably without a bottle of Old No. 7 in your hand.

Shark repellent

We heard it keeps '80s strains of STDs away also.

Snakeskin sombrero

Your pants won't be enough to set you apart from the crowd once you reach Mexico. With the huge hat, you'll be unstoppable. 

What's left of your awesome '80s long hair

It will be cool once again when it is braided and beaded on the ship, especially with lots of sunburnt scalp showing through its thinning areas. 

Bon Voyage!

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
