It was another fun weekend in Destin. Sunshine Cindy and I were busy with our Crab Island Mambo business. Friday I posted the August Crab Island Mambo Mullet Wrapper newsletter. It was another fine edition if I do say so myself. LOL You can read it here: http://www.crabislandmambo.com/Mullet-Wrapper-August-2014-edition.html
Then on Saturday we kicked off the registration for the 2015 “Phlocking of the Phaithful” Trop Rock party in Put in Bay, Ohio. In conjunction with the registration being open we are also having a special raffle with a prize package of over $500. You can get all the information on this party and raffle here: http://www.crabislandmambo.com/Crab-Island-Mambo-presents-Phlocking-of-the-Phaithful.html
But even with all this Mambo work going on we were still able to get out and about. Friday was our “Embrace the Chaos” Trop Rock Music Series at Crab Island Cantina with the Calypso Nuts. It was a beautiful evening with cool Gulf breezes and fun tropical music from Robbie and Lynley. This past weekend was the Emerald Coast boating Poker Run. Our area gets hundreds of high priced and powerful boats in town for this weekend. We got to see many of them from the Cantina. This is always a fun weekend with these boats roaring around our waterways.
After the Calypso Nuts were done we went to the Boathouse. Kenny and Tommy were there. The place was packed with many tourist. We were outside on the deck. Folks were having a good time. Cajun Mike and Terry came in then Suzanne and a friend also joined us. A lady, Stephanie, was there with her parents. She is a boat captain. Her parents are from Ocean City, Mississippi. All three of them were a hoot. Her dad was also named Steve. We hit it right off because of that.
At one point Stephanie climbed up onto the small ledge that is the top of the railing system. She had a hula hoop that she was trying to spin. It scared us she would fall but her mom was just there taking pictures. Why does the statement, “hold my beer, watch this” come to mind. Meanwhile Steve was just shaking his head saying they did the best they could with her. LOL
Saturday had Sunshine Cindy and I going to Landshark Pizza in the afternoon. We watched some of the Packers football game while having some lunch. Brian was mixing up some mango habanera sauce. I had some. It was pretty hot but not over the top. They had a steady crowd of people coming in but as we were leaving the dinner rush was starting and the place was about full. We spent the rest of the evening home relaxing.
Sunday was a quiet day for us. I washed Badass but that was the extent of getting out. Sometimes it’s nice to just hang out and not do much. It threatened rain all day or we might have gone to the pool. Oh well, next time.
Most schools are back in session now. Our summer season is for the most part over. We will have a busy Labor Day Weekend but that will be it for a while. We are getting our town back!
Have a great week. See ya Thursday!
