Champagne Sunday at Crabs

Sunday morning/afternoon at Crabs seems to be a local’s secret here on Pensacola Beach. Since I’ve only been a local for a little over a year, I feel very privileged to know about this. Every Sunday, in addition to the live steel drum band, they also have an excellent brunch menu (all plates are 9.99) along with an outstanding drink special: All-you-can-drink champagne for 3.95!!! Wow!

If you stop in, be sure to get to know your bartenders. Ken and Jill are some of the best bartenders on the island!

If you come to Crabs between 11 and 2 you’ll be sure to catch the locals in action:

Stop in on a Sunday and have a glass of champagne with your local Pensacola Beach Blogger! Just look for the goofy Yank with Canon 40D!

A Pensacola Beach Wedding

You heard it here first! I’m getting married on Pensacola Beach to my lovely girlfriend (now fiance) of 2 years, Lydia! We met in Grand Rapids, Michigan and moved down here about a year and a half ago.

We are having our September wedding right here on the island, at Our Lady of the Assumption and our reception will be held at Skopelos on the Bay, just over the bridge in Pensacola. If you haven’t been to Skopelos, I highly recommend it. Excellent food and service that can’t be beat.

I know this isn’t really Pensacola Beach related, but I felt that I just had to break the news!


Fun Behind Crabs

This huge inflatable waterslide was set up the day behind Crabs on Pensacola Beach. Makes me wish I was 12 years old again:

Pink Pony Pub in Gulf Shores, AL

Only about 30 minutes away from Pensacola Beach, Gulf Shores is a fun change of scenery. After some shopping at the huge outlet mall in Foley, Alabama, we headed 10 miles south to Gulf Shores. Upon a recommendation we hit up the Pink Pony Pub on the beach for dinner and some drinks:

They have a back deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. We took the waitperson’s recommendation and ordered up some Nachos, one of their specialties. Very good, and VERY large. Come hungry!

The beaches here are similar to Pensacola Beach: wide, flat, and powdery-white sand:

Here’s something that I’m not used to seeing on Pensacola Beach though, an oil rig off the coast. Click to enlarge:
