THE (midnight sun) SITUATION is tomorrow

tiki barge oh yeah baby you better be there oh yeah oh yeahToday might be soggy but tomorrow is looking fine, fine fine. it'll be a perfect day for a situation.

Not just any situation.

THE (midnight sun) SITUATION.

Oh sniggity oh snappersons!

The party starts at 6 p.m. at Tiki Barge but probably won't reach Wild and Crazy Kids status until 7 p.m. That's when I'm going to ceremoniously distribute the 2010 Best of the Best of the Best Awards.

We've gotten a bunch of rsvps on the facebook site. Check it out, if you haven't already ...

I've been calling up bar owners these past few days and inviting/threatening them to come. Most agreed. Ill deal with the rest later.



Speaking of the awards, you should see 'em. Our ace team of designers did a bang-up job. I'm going to give them their own award, as long as they design it.

At midnight I'm going to swim across the harbor. Or maybe I'll tie a bunch of Best of the Best of the Best Awards together and float to victory.

I'll have a bunch of tickets to give away, too, to shows like the BSO performing the music of Michael Jackson, Frank Zappa and Philip Glass. Come and get 'em!

See you manana!

Q: are we just hanging out at the bar itself or is the pool area going to be open to us (and will we have to pay a cover)?

After Sam's Best of the Best etc. awards are distributed, I'll give out the only one that actually matters.

You see ... after reviewing the Facebook RSVPs, I've decided to announce the first ever Midnight Sunner bikini contest. There are some nice looking ladies who will be in attendance. I'll be the host and the lone judge.

So come ready to strut your stuff, ladies.

@Evan -- Depends. And no, I'm not talking about the diapers for elderly people.

We're going to have to see how the night goes. I say bring a suit, see what happens. Yes, you'll have to pay $10 to use the pool, but that includes a free drink of your choice.

I'm going to play it like I see it. I'm also probably going to show off my six-pack abs ... ladies.

We will have you shut down by 7 pm if your shirt comes off, Sam.
