    Just returned from our TTR vacation........

    After talking with the concierge at the GP we were left with the following impressions:
    She welcomes many things that the TTR Refugees will bring to the GP, yet is skeptical that we won't go overboard on others.
    While being impressed when told that we enjoy dressing up for an elegant dinner, she expressed concern that some may dress too revealing or trashy. She commented that the Shangri La's new Chef would love to see a bigger turnout at his restaurant! The Shangri La restaurant is the GP's equivalent to the Il Piacere (Italian) at Temptation.

    When told that most of us prefer to dance late into the night, she commented that the GP regulars prefer to spend their evenings sitting at the Tiki Bar drinking. It didn't seem like it will be a problem to get some good dance music in the Sixties Lounge for us to enjoy. I doubt we'll be able to arrange for it nightly, but every fews nights should be doable.

    As far as going topless, we were assured that it would not be a problem at all! Although traditional tie side, thong and scrunch butt bottoms would not be an issue, we did get the impression that there was concern that the semi-transparent and "micro" variety could stir up the regulars.

    Daytime activities include: Beach volleyball, tequila volleyball, water polo, yoga, pilates, stretching and beach walks as well as others.

    Activities after dark include: Performances in the Galaxy Theater 4 nights a week and poolside activities 2 nights per week.

    The Sixties Bar is scheduled for a variety of events, such as: Karaoke, Bingo, a Billiards Tournament on Wednesdays and "Party Music" on Sunday nights.

    We'll keep in contact with the concierge so that we can make arrangements on the most appropriate nights for dancing!

    As far as Theme Nights go, we can always dress in theme for group dinners, attending the shows at the Galaxy Theater or nights at the Tiki Bar. The Tiki Bar would be a great setting for a "Ladies in Hawaiian shirts and their men in shorts w/no shirts!"

    This is certainly not going to be Temptation, but I think we can make the best of our situation and all have a great vacation together!

    Would love to hear some input.

    Joe and Lucinda

    A little setback for us October refugees. The Concierge (Denise) that we spoke to on June 20th announced on facebook on June 27th that she has left the GP.

    This is very disappointing to Lucinda and I as she was very pleasant, welcoming and willing to work with us. I get the feeling that her departure was spontaneous as she didn't give us a hint of such plans when we spoke.

    Worst case, I am still going to show up with a laptop full of music and if they are willing, we will turn the Sixties Bar into a dancing hot spot! We'll show the GP regulars that sitting at a bar in a drunken stupor is not nearly as fun as dancing the night away in a drunken stupor! LOL

    I will give things a few days to settle then begin contacting the resort to see what kind of new contacts can be made. They would be fools to turn their backs on us as we are potential future regulars.

    Hey, with this crowd of TTR regulars we can make a good time out of anything! After all there is an all night hot tub, great restaurants and tequila volleyball! They even make "Paty'O Burgers" into the wee hours! The rest we can ad lib!

    Well shit, I hope GP doesn't announce they are closing too. So far it seems every aspect of our vacation is collapsing. But, like you said, we'll make the best of any situation.

    We may be able to ramp up the nightlife to our satisfaction while at the GP, but I thought I'd also toss out a few 'off resort' alternatives as I dig them up. Here's one that sounded fun:

    'Google' it and see what you think. Some great pictures online!

    Sounds like a great idea, I'll fly it past the new concierge!
    Looking at their nightly activities schedule it looks like Sunday the 9th would work best since "Party Music" is already scheduled for the Sixties Bar and I assume that means DJ, dancing, party, etc.
    It looks like Thursday is another day on the schedule that we may be able to work in a theme night and some dancing. I'm hoping that we can nail down at least 3 days per week for dancing!
    They have so many nightly activities scheduled that it may depend on their typical turnout as to what they are willing to give up to us.
    I'll get an email sent to their concierge by tomorrow evening.

    Joe you can run it by them if you want. But we are doing it just thought it would be fun if a larger group participated.

    Can't wait to see you!!

    Do you want a white, red or LBD night? We need to start getting on this. What about Hawaiian shirt night? Looks like we will have superhero night as well.

    What are your thoughts.

    See you soon,
    Lucinda

    Please review the theme night/activity list and makes comments! If they are satisfactory, please say so!
    Would you like to do any day themes at the pool? Some examples might be "Pink-out Day' or "Guys in square cuts".
    Let's show the GP regulars that we don't bite. We just enjoy a good party and dancing into the night!
    I'll post our final list on the REAL GP facebook page and see if we can get some more people on board, so make your comments and suggestions soon that we can finalize this and get this party on the road!

    We will either be utilizing the House DJ and his playlist.
    -or-
    He might use our music if he chooses to.
    -or-
    They may just turn over the DJ booth to us so that we can be in control.

    The Sixties Bar is an excellent venue for a gathering and dancing. It will accommodate fewer people than Paty'Os, but is has a hardwood dance floor and a nice sound system. It even has a pool table and an air hockey table, if I remember correctly.

    Honestly, the resort themes make it sound like we're going on a seniors cruise or to a retirement resort. We are second guessing our choice of GP for our anniversary trip, especially knowing how possible it is that we get bumped to another resort. I would love to see a "Risky Business" theme with ladies in a man's button up shirt and heels. Is that too much for the GP?

    I had similar thoughts when I saw Bingo too! One bright spot is that the drinks are free while we're playing!
    The way I look at it, there are over 100 resorts in the Riviera Maya that will be dark and silent by 9pm........
    ......we won't be at one of them!
    Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best to work in a theme night if you want it to include dancing at the Sixties Bar. I slipped in the Hawaiian Shirt Night at the Tiki Bar as a compromise to the Risky Business night. Thought it would be similar enough, but added a tropical feel. What are your thoughts? Wishes?

    Keep in mind that there IS a large tub out by the pool that I believe is open all hours! Could be a lot of fun after a hot night sitting at the Tiki Bar or dancing at the Sixties Bar!

    There will be 18 of us (9 couples) at the GP on Saturday October 15th. Who's up for Dress shirt Night @ the Tiki Bar after the resorts' Tiki Party by the pool is over? We can keep the party at the Tiki Bar or move it to the beach!

    Do we just want the gals in dress shirts or do the guys have enough balls to put on their best Tom Cruise from Risky Business and participate as well? What do ya say Duff?? Eh?? LOL
    Tidy whities, dress shirts and white tube socks on the guys!! Dress shirts (1 button rule), ssssssexy panties and stilettos for the ladies!
    We need some comments.....we're down to just 80-something days to go!
    Woot! Woot!
