Full Moon Gathering
Tuesday, February 3rd

Full MoonIt is that time of month for our full moon gathering on the shores of Lake Brown at Cypress Cove. We'll be meeting at 6 PM this month. Bring a musical instrument if you desire, a libation of your choice and a desire to see mother nature at her best.

Please come early to get set up and help start our campfire. Usually wood is left by the pit however if you have dry wood to contribute it would make it easier to get the fire going to provide the atmosphere that helps make our gathering special.

Full Snow Moon – February
Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult.

Nude Cruise Fashion Show
Wednesday, February 11

The Figleaf Boutique will host a Nude Cruise Fashion Show on Wednesday, February 11th at 2 pm, around the West Pool. If weather inclement, we will hold the show in Cheeks (like last year).

Please join the fun and see the latest in Nude Cruise apparel.

Bon Voyage Party & Nude Cruise Details
Wednesday, February 11

Meet your fellow cruisers at our Bon Voyage Party, Wednesday night before the Nude Cruise. There will be informational meetings about the cruise in Scuttlebutts at 6 & 6:30 PM. You only need to go to one.

BTW, be sure to check in online at least 3 days in advance this year. Celebrity runs things a little differently. They want you to check in early and they will mail your luggage tags, as opposed to previous years when you could print out paper tags. Contact Bare Necessities at 800-743-0405 if you have any questions or need assistance.

We will be offering a delicious buffet dinner from 5 to 9 PM. Everyone is invited for both the dinner and the party, you do not need to be going on the cruise to attend.

A Taste Of Love will take the stage at 7 PM. They are Cove favorites for a reason. They are really a terrific act. Bon voyage!

News from Ted

TedLast weekend was Blues Weekend, featuring The Johnnie Marshall Blues Band.

Johnnie played to a sold out crowd Saturday night. I had no idea how big Johnnie Marshall is or how lucky we were to have him. Xavier brought him in for us. It turns out he's a national Blues act, with multiple albums available, and a protege of BB King!


This weekend is Super Bowl Weekend, featuring our Super Bowl Party in Cheeks on Sunday night.

Thursday night enjoy Live Music w/ Carl during dinner at the Lakeside Restaurant. That's also Nude Night, so nude diners get a free glass of wine with dinner.

Then Friday night we have Suicide Karaoke w/ DJ Xavier. It starts off as a regular Karaoke Party, with 1000's of songs to choose from. The Suicide part comes in when Xavier switches to a list of hits and standards. Singers come up having no idea which song they are going to sing. You may win a prize for participating. It's a lot of fun!

The main event on Saturday is a Superstar Nights Concert w/ A Tribute to the Beach Boys. They played at Nude-A-Palooza this year and we're really terrific. I'm sure you'll enjoy the show.

* Superstar Nights Concerts are generally a 2 hour show, from 8 to 10 pm, with no break. Please make reservations in advance to guarantee a table for the show. Guests who are not dining may be asked to sit in Scuttlebutts until dinner seating has completed at around 9 pm.

Stick around Sunday night for our Super Bowl Party at Cheeks. Come see the Big Game on one of our 3 big screen TVs. We will have food & drink specials, and prizes throughout the game.

Our Super Bowl Specials kick off at 5:00 PM. Buckets of Beer all night at Happy Hour Prices. We will be smoking up BBQ St. Louis Ribs, Messy Pig Sandwiches, and our Texas Destroyer Sandwiches (beef brisket, fried onion rings, jalapeno slices, provolone cheese, and BBQ sauce, served on a bun). Also with our new Pizza Oven, we will be baking Large & Small Pizzas such as Pepperoni, Meat Lovers, Vegetarian, & Cheese.


Last call for Nude Cruise Buses! The hotel is just about sold out for the Nude Cruise. If you are planning to take the bus down with us, make sure you are signed up before it's too late. If you're not sure if you're signed up, please verify with Tiki at 407-933-5870 or Thank you!
