Destin weekend fun!

What a fun few days we had in Destin this weekend. Thursday night Sunshine Cindy and I went to a new Mexican restaurant to check it out. Coco’s is a stone’s throw from our house. It’s a small place. The food was okay and the beer was cold but there was nothing to make the place stand out. We were stuffed by the time we left thought.

Friday was a Parrothead Meeting at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Sandestin. Before we headed out there we ran some errands and decided to stop in at Rotolo’s pizza for a beer. Kelly and her husband David were there. Kerby had just got off work and he was there too. It was a nice way to start the evening.

The party at Cheeseburger was mellow. A decent crowd was there. The Parrotheads filled about a third of the place. Sunshine Cindy and I had some food and chatted with some of our friends. Julie was heading to the Boathouse to meet Jan, Loujean, Kenny, Leanne and Scott. We decided to join them there. The place was packed but they had a corner by the bar. No one was feeling any pain. The manager Gigi brought us some Jello-Shots, Catfish was there playing his saw, some other locals were there and Spring Breakers were also filling the place. It was a blast

When we left we walked the twenty feet to Dockside. They also had some guys playing music. By now it was getting late. Jan took off his shirt, Kenny got a cab home and the rest of us watched all the craziness. What a fun night. In Destin you never where the nights might lead too. This one was a lot of fun. Also, I have to ask…why do Spring Break guys all seem to wear dress shirts or sweaters? This is the beach. Get some beach wear for your evening out. LOL

Saturday was our 1st Saturday of Spring Beach Party. We woke up Saturday morning and it was dark and windy. There was rain all around but most had passed. We got out there. Dennis is home for a while from Afghanistan and he joined us. We ended up with a small group due to the weather. About noon or so the skies opened up. We all retreated to the pavilion to continue the party. We might not have been on the beach but we were still having fun.

As the pavilion party wound down, a group of us headed to Julies. She had a new recipe she wanted to try out on us. We were all happy to oblige! It was pork and sauerkraut. Very yummy! After eating Loujean broke out her Jello-Shots. Somehow we ended up with everyone trying to eat the Jello-Shots with no hands. It was funny to watch. For a crappy weather day we sure had a lot of fun.

While we were at Julies on Saturday, I got a phone call from Matt. He told me he was sending me a picture of some folks he ran into down at the Boathouse. It turns out the guys are from Southern Illinois. They partied with us at the Turtle last year and have become regular readers of this blog. Welcome back to Destin and to being included in the blog! Maybe our paths will cross again. And thanks for being loyal readers!!!

Our Southern Illinois friends!

The weather on Sunday was clear, warm and breezy. It was going to be a Pointe Bum day to tan some fat. With the Mayor (Dennis) home it was natural for us to get together on the sand at the Pointe. Dennis was doing his usual fishing but the only thing he caught was a seagull. The bird got wrapped around his line. We were able to cut the line loose and set the flying rat free! lol  Russ, Jan, Loujean and Julie all joined us on the beach. There were tons of Spring Breakers. It was great seeing the tiny bikini’s again after a long winter. About 1 pm the wind really kicked in. We were being sand blasted and getting exfoliated for free! I called it a day a little later.

In the evening Sunshine Cindy and I stopped in at Sago Sports Bar. JB was talking to a lady about voice lessons. His wife was there and we had a chance to catch up with them. They are doing karaoke on Tuesday’s at Crab Island Cantina. We will have to check it out. Stephanie was behind the bar. “Haircut” Gary came in for a beer and told us about his weekend trip to Jacksonville. We had some food and headed home for the night. It was a great Destin weekend spent “Embracing the Chaos!”

Have a great week. See ya Thursday!

  1. I always look forward to the weekend. During the summer I usually visit the beach on the weekends. Sometimes me and my friends plan different parties as well. I was told to try murder mystery parties. It could be a party plan for a boring weekend.
