Destin had another busy week with plenty of tourist still in town. It must have been Fall Break in some areas as there were a lot of families with kids here. As an example I stopped in at The Crust Pizzeria to talk to Charlie. There were two big groups of families in there eating pizza and pasta. You can tell they were tourist as they were talking about going to play putt putt and walk along the beach. Destin is becoming a more year round destination now.
Speaking of Charlie and The Crust, he has opened another location in Mary Ester next to the mall. He said they are doing well as that location caters to local residents in the area. With his satellite location outside AJ’s and this new place, Charlie is starting to put together a pizza empire!
Friday night the ECPHC held its monthly meeting at LuLu’s in Destin. A big turnout of almost 100 parrot heads partied with a purpose. We packed out the inside bar area but the rest of LuLu’s was also full. They seem to be doing very well since they opened.
On Saturday I wanted to go watch the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game. They had a day game that started at noon. I went to Landshark Pizza to watch the game and Sunshine Cindy joined me a while later. Glen was being trained as a new cook. Both Brian’s were there and Austin came in about the time the game ended. The Lightning won too! Plenty of college football games were also on. Having so many sports to choose from is a guy’s dream! LOL
We hung around Landshark for a while sitting outside. Brian sat with us and we talked about the new Landshark. They are about a week behind schedule on the build out but that’s not too bad. They should be opening in their new location around the end of this month. It’s an exciting time for Landshark as they are hiring new cooks and servers as they prepare to make the move to this bigger place. They will have a full bar too so they are also hiring bartenders. It will be cool to have them on the harbor.
On Sunday Sunshine Cindy and I decided to go to Tailfins to watch the Browns game. We have some friends who are Ravens fans and that was the team the Browns were playing. We knew they would be there and we would have a fun time rooting back and forth. They did show up and we all had a fun time. The Browns actually won so I had bragging rights. I don’t get to gloat too often. We also saw a bunch of friends there. Cheryl was our server, Wayne, Tommy, Kerby, Rhett and others were there watching games. The view is perfect at Tailfins and it’s a fun place to watch the games when you have a nice day.
Don’t forget we still have our Crab Island Mambo tee’s and tanks on sale. Get your own slice of Destin before they are gone! http://crabislandmambo.com/Crab-Island-Mambo-Merchandise.html
