Celebrate TR’s 50th Birthday In The Bahamas!
Please join me on a fantastic vacation to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends and family in a wonderful setting. Spend as much or as little time as you want in Bimini, Nassau, or both! Enjoy warm weather, beautiful beaches, and crystal clear water, along with boating and all kinds of other fun activities, like hanging out with me! We won’t just be celebrating my birthday, some of my favorite people also have birthdays right around that time, so it will be a weeks-long celebration for all of us! Be sure to use the reservation link below for Bimini or the email address for Nassau, so that you get the group rate on rooms and are included in the group. Please let me know if you have any questions, and if you could take a moment to RSVP after checking out the details below, that would be great!

UPDATE: Due to the high costs of SLS, which generated little interest from all of you valued guests, I am changing the venue for Nassau. (Bimini is all set and I'm excited to see those of you that have already confirmed and booked! There is still room for more!)

The new celebration location in Nassau is the freshly-renovated British Colonial Nassau Hotel and its affiliated resort Margaritaville, which some of you may have heard of. Room prices are about half what SLS quoted to those of you who told me the prices you received.

How do I get there?
Bimini is best accessed from Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, so your best bet is to get there first, then hop on a plane or the Balearia Ferry.

Does TR want birthday presents?
NO! Your presence is your present! Being with family and friends, all having a great time in a warm place, is all I want for my birthday. And a boat.
Can I bring the kids?
You can! However, while there are some great activities for kids, such as snorkeling and the water parks, this is mostly an adult event. So if you bring kids, make sure they act like adults, especially when us adults are acting like kids.
Do I need a passport?
Yes! If you don't already have one, stop reading this right now and go get one!
