The end of summer is marked by the days getting shorter & the nights growing longer, a little chill in the night air, & flocks of birds winging their way south for the winter. This all means one thing to shaggers. The Fall Migration is finally here! Buried deep in the instincts of every shagger is the preferred migration destination of soulful dancers with sand in their shoes & rhythm in their hearts, that is Ocean Drive. Every strander feels the need to get to the beach to catch the last golden rays of the summer sun & feel the warmth in the breath of the final summer breeze. They all meet for the last blast of the season at the SOS Fall Migration.
The center of attention for the 10 days of the biggest adult party on the East Coast is the famous SOS lounges. The SOS lounges are Fat Harold's, Ducks, Duck's II, the OD Arcade, the Pirate's Cove & the clubs at the OD Beach & Golf Resort. Each lounge has its own special quality, so you really need to make the rounds through each lounge during your Fall Migration outings. Many member clubs of the ACSC will schedule "tea parties" in the local lounges. The lounges themselves schedule special parties during the migration. Popular bands show up along Main Street playing crowd favorites. Shag dance instructors will offer classes to the masses who are seeking to improve their skill or increase their repertoire of moves.
