What's New in Destin? 9/10/08

We have a Seafood Festival planning meeting today at lunchtime. Only 3 weeks to go!!! Hope to see many of you there on Fri Oct 3.

destinchamber.com/destin/seafoodfestival.asp

Brand new blues club just opened next to the Copper Grill - Bluz! Talking to some friends they really like the place and the vibe, I think we are going to check it out this weekend. "Tin Feet" New Orleans jazz band was rocking the place.

And during a Sunday morning bikeride through the harbor we noticed a new place literally on the water between the Boathouse and AJs- Baby J's! It is a large paddle wheel type boat with bar and restaurant, very reasonbly priced and promoting jazz. Just opened last week. Meeting a group of locals there today for happy hour, $1 beers all day!

Still waiting on Pat O' Briens to open. But I looked in the windows on Sunday and they appear very close to opening. There is a huge outdoor deck overlooking the harbor.

Just checked out the Bluz website. I don't know about the rest of you, but when you put the word "free" in front of the words "beer" and "drinks", I'm sold.

Looking forward to getting back down there and seeing the Harborwalk.

Thanks, Joe!

One more thing, Joe.

If you're in the mood for a little investigation, I'd love to know what a "Granny Bite" is at Bluz.

I spoke with the owner of Pat O's and they said opening date looks like 10/02 but they are trying to make up for some lost time and it could be a little sooner. I can't wait!!
