This week had a little different twist to it. Our good friend Earl had his birthday on Tuesday. Earl is the co-owner of the Tropical Isle bars on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Pam was having a big party Tuesday night at the Original Tropical Isle for Earl. She had Jerry Diaz and Hanna’s Reef in town to play for the party. We decided to have Sunshine Cindy go for the party. Earl and Pam are big supporters of Crab Island Mambo and we wanted to be there to help Earl celebrate.
I had to work so I couldn’t go but Sunshine Cindy and her daughter Tiffany went to NOLA on Monday. They had a great time in the French Quarter. The party for Earl was a fun bash. I watched most of it from the web cam but it was just not the same as being there. They made it home safe and sound on Wednesday afternoon.
Tuesday after work I stopped at Landshark Pizza. “B” was at the bar and I joined him. He had his birthday the day before. It must be something about this time of the year. Steve also stopped in and sat with us. We solved many of the world’s problems. I had wings to quench my “Landshark wing fix.” They have the best wings in town.
Lucy Buffett made it official this week that she is opening a LuLu’s in Destin. I have been reporting on this for many months and now it’s in the news. The place will be on the bay next to Legendary Marine at the base of the Mid-Bay bridge. It should open in the spring if all goes well.
We continue to get good response to our musical lineup for the “21st Annual Phlocking of the Phaithful – 21 and Legal…Let the Chaos Begin” Trop Rock party next year in Put in Bay.
