As the so-called Special Guest, I will be seated at a separate table signing menus, photos, and anything else deemed appropriate.
Seriously, I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting everyone. Thanks WJ for allowing me to join the group.

The only one who sits at a separate table is Chi Town Diner. He needs one to fit all of the food that he orders for himself.

Post  dinner "night caps" for Friday and Saturday
 
When I think of a night, cap, a good micro brew comes to mind, however I know many of you are not big drinkers.
Therefore, we will do something a little different

Friday February 19
I believe most of us will be staying in St. Augustine. Therefore after Gator's let's return to ST Augustine as  some chocolate and other fine desserts might be in order at
The Chocolate Turtle
 
 
Saturday February 20
We're hoping it will be relatively warm while we're down in St. Augustine. Certainly warm enough to enjoy some ice cream. So after Salt Water Cowboys we can head over to St Augustine Beach to
Coneheads Ice Cream
 
We're just over a week away. Not much more to say on my end other than looking forward to seeing everyone.
 
 
 




WJ,
 
I hope you didn't put me in the "not big drinker" category because of how I didn't want to drink cold beer in Memphis with you last year (the temperature was brutally cold!).
 
So yeah, just wanted to clarify my drinker status.  Thanks.
 
Danny

Just a word of caution.  Reliable sources have confirmed that the person in the picture below will be attending the eating events in Jacksonville and St. Augustine next week.  Roadfood authorities say he goes by the name of Carolina Bob and should be considered hungry and dangerous.

And be aware that this Carolina Bob guy is a master of disguises
 
he's been known to use the ol' fake beard, nose and glasses  routine
 

 
 He's even tried disguising himself as  Mayor Al 
 

 
And recently  appeared as both halves of Ayersian at the same time!
 
 

 
One dead give away is that there is always a plate or two or three of food nearby

In the interest of National Security, I can not comment on my choice of disguises, but I do wholeheartedly disagree with ever having been dressed as a slice of pie...or even slices of pie!

Wow!  Having second thoughts on this weekend...maybe laughing too much to eat
 
Gonna B Fun.
 
I'm staying in South Jax off the 295S just before the 95 interchange, but have no problems in heading to SA after Gators for ice cream or craft beer or a nightcap (although the second one would have me joining BB in that Shirley Temple.

I'm kinda' right behind you WJ. I'm driving 7 hrs. south from my home to Fayetteville, NC on Fri. 2/19. Staying the night and then leaving early Saturday morning for the 5 1/2 hr drive to Jacksonville. I have a candy show at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront that runs Sunday until Wed. the 24th. I'll start my journey back north that night.

Not sure why Aviator or Dream Machine are listed as "Imports" Dream Machine is from Magic Hat and Aviator is out of No. Carolina.   Either will satisfy a craft beer enthusiast, with Aviator the slightly better one , IMO..  But if you've never had Intuition, it's worth a try.  And prices are that unreasonable.  For BIG Beer stalwarts wanting a nosh, "Ying and Wings" works just dandy.
 
And for the non-alcohol drinkers, or any of us since they don't serve alcohol, Gators has Cheerwine the North Carolina regional cherry flavored soda.

We're now just one week out and with temps this weekend here in Rhode Island expected to dip in the negative digits overnight, St Augustine will be a welcome respite rain or shine (hopefully shine)
I remember my first time driving from Rhode Island to Florida back in 2002. I stopped in St Augustine and went to a "red sauce" Italian joint called Borrello's- it's right in the historic district and it appears it's still around. I had the Eggplant Parm. It was as good as any that I've had in NY an RI

So Cliff, what kind of pie are Minorcans known for, mullet pie?
 
PS, interesting article.

We're just four days  away and so far it looks like we're going to have some decent weather in Jacksonville/ St. Augustine.

Finally hopping on board this thread . . . packing my bags tomorrow! I'm staying in Atlantic Beach so I hope to meet up with ChiBears15 at Singleton's. Thanks to all the planners and the comedians! In most cases, one and the same! Yesterday I had minus 30 wind chills . . . tomorrow expecting 55 degrees and rain! Even if JAX/St. Augustine is only in the 60's, if there's sun, I'll be happy. Looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones! Safe travels everyone!
