Sunshine Cindy and I headed to harbor. Wayne joined us. First stop was the Monkey Bar. We thought JB was playing but he wasn’t. We had a beer and then we headed to The Boathouse. The place was pretty full with mostly older folks. Are the snowbirds coming in already? We stayed for a while listening to Jason Clark play. All our friends on the staff greeted us. This is another place that feels like family.
We left to walk the harbor. First stop was a new place right under the zip line tower. Fishheads opened up a few months ago. This was our first stop there. One of the owners, Melissa was behind the bar with Emily. We talked to them for while about getting started and how they were doing. We told Melissa we would stop by on our “Chaos Crawl” pub crawl next Saturday. It was a nice place that also had liquor so they should do well.

Time to move on again. Dominic joined us as we stopped in at Harry T’s. We wanted to hear Flash Flood but they were not playing so we kept moving to listen to Ronnie at AJ’s. No joy there either as Ronnie was closing down for the night. Upstairs to the AJ’s Club Bimini. The place was packed with young people. We found a place to hang out for a while. Time to head out with one last stop at Waffle House for a late night snack. As we walked in Norma and Phil were there. Phil had sang a few songs at The Boathouse. We must have just missed him. We all talked as we wound down for the evening.

One last bit of news….the new Margaritaville that will be opening in Destin at Harborwalk Village is booking auditions for musical acts to play there. Auditions will be held Oct. 13-15th by appointment only. They are looking for experienced musicians or acts that can play a variety of musical styles and covers. If you want to be considered send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to a website where samples of your music can be heard. We walk by the new Margaritaville all the time and it is really taking shape. It is going to be a big place with two stories overlooking the harbor. I have tried to see what kind of “theme” they are going to use but I can’t tell. Whatever it is I am sure it will be fun!
