ok to wear shorts to bars & dinner places?

Is it fine to wear shorts to casual dinner restaurants and all the bars/nightlife at Broadway at the Beach?

Thanks!

Yes indeed. The best look is bermuda shorts, black dress shoes, and calf-length white socks. ;)

Just kidding. Yes, you'll find shorts everywhere at the beach. There may be few high-end restaurants that don't allow shorts, but 99% of places are casual and laid back.

Yes it most definitley is. At this point down there, you probably would die of heat if you didn't wear shorts!

Absolutely. You can even wear a sun-visor and fanny pack if you want :)

Can't believe a Mountaineer from West "By Gawd, Hope you like Rodriguez " Virginia is about to help somebody with a big yeller M by their name.

I'm one of the most laid back beach goers you'll ever meet. At the beach I never wear long pants, shoes with shoe strings and seldom any shirts with buttons......According to pics I've seen....I don't go hungry......or thirsty.... at the beach.....

PS....You can keep Richie...... .........

I'm with Pop on this one... I pack one pair of khaki pants, but not sure why.

My only request is... no jean "cut off" shorts... so 70s.

Agreed, but white socks must have 2 or 3 red stripes at the top to be fashionable. Dad says so,
