Rainy weekend in Destin

This was a weekend to keep the umbrella and raincoat handy. It poured off and on all weekend. Oh well, at least there is no drought to worry about. Friday night was a Parrothead phlocking at Howl at the Moon. Despite the weather there was a good turnout. It is always fun there with the dueling piano show. After leaving Howl at the Moon we headed home and called it a night.

Saturday we were busy during the day running some errands. Saturday afternoon we stopped in at Landshark Pizza. Julie joined us there. Renee and Stephanie were working. We tried some of their new Smoked Gouda Mac & Cheese bites. They were fantastic. We will get those again. Alan and Jackie stopped in for a while. It was fun chatting with them. Brian also came in and sat next to us. Finally Wayne joined us. We had a fun time. We left Landshark and stopped in at McGuire’s. We sat at the bar and watched the people coming and going. This place is always busy.

Sunday we had a brief break in the rain. With the nice weather, Sunshine Cindy and I went to Crab Island Cantina to hang out on the harbor for a while. The Daytona 500 was getting ready to start. Dave and Marilyn were there so we joined them at the bar. Alan and Jackie also came in and joined us. The bar was actually full and there was a good crowd of people walking through the village. The Cantina had a good crowd too. It was great to see. Carlos the owner also joined us and Julie also stopped in. We watched the entire race and had a blast.

We left there and went to the Rotten Apple. They were having a free crawfish boil. Scott, Mike, Terry and Michele were all there. Rose was behind the bar and Matt and Mindy were playing music. There was a good crowd of locals there too. We ended the night at Rotolo’s Pizza having some food and winding down the day. We managed to not get any rain all day but it came down hard during the night.

The ECPHC and Harborwalk Village is sponsoring a Chili Cook-Off on March 9th. This is a big fund raiser for Relay for Life. The cook-off will be from 3-7 pm. At 7 pm the Sauce Boss will be performing on the big stage at Harborwalk Village. There will also be a big announcement about a new tenant moving into Harborwalk Village.
