I am definitely in for this — putting the dates on my calendar now! I live in Ocala, and my sister lives in St. Augustine, so I'm VERY familiar with the restaurant scene there. In fact, I'll be there this weekend!



Keysey42,
 
I look forward to meeting you.

Since there are but three living members of the original Glee Club, and one of them has be quiet for a couple of years, It would seem that the next generation has taken the lead in filling the Winter activity schedule..  Depending on our circumstances in Feb of '16, we may be able to share some of the planned adventures.

The glee club was unique. That's why this is something new and a little different.I could never step in your shoes or Paul's for that matter. And or course Bushie and Poverty Pete as well (RIP) Hopefully we can get a decent crowd in Jacksonville and I'm hoping you can be a part of it.
BTW, aren't there 4 original members left? One gentleman from Kentucky who went MIA?

I delegated that to Big Boy. If he doesn't respond then you're all on your own.

With 732 different options for rooming in that area, it has proven to be more fun when a host hotel with a discounted rate is set-up.

St Augustine is fairly small and compact. I'll probably leave it up to "Mr. Shatner"

So...to summarize....you've changed the dates, pawned off the spreadsheet (code for there will be none) and killed the group hotel idea.  Strong start....

I'm confident there WILL be a spreadsheet (AKA you are going whether I have to hunt you down and drag you kicking and screaming)

Keysey posted this in the AL BBQ thread but I thought it would be if interest to you all planning this event.

Re: Alabama Announces The Alabama Barbecue Hall Of Fame 11 minutes ago (permalink)

Back in the 1980s, a relative of Big Bob Gibson opened Gibson's BBQ in my hometown of Ocala, FL. That was my introduction to Alabama white sauce, and I've been hooked on it ever since. Unfortunately, he didn't have a great location, and only lasted about a year in Ocala. But I've now found an excellent BBQ shack in St. Augustine — Smokin' D's, a take-out only place at the corner of US-1 and FL-206 — that does a good rendition of the stuff, so I can get my fix occasionally.
 
Al is correct (technically 4 remaining Glee Club members, but Jim in KY has been MIA for many years)(Al, Paul, Pogo and Jim are the 4)

Hopefully a certain government agency will get off their arses and get with the program and I may be able to make this one, but the gubmint moves slow as moleasses in winter time.

We all got together and put our heads together to  figure out what would be a sure fire way to mess with TTM's head.

Wanna know a secret? TTM can go to St. Augustine and/or Jacksonville whenever he wants. 
 
Further, TTM hasn't been all that enthusiastic about group outings in quite some time now. Maybe Presidents Day weekend (when he already has time off from work) will be a better time for him to go anyway.

So it really doesn't matter...and can you leave the key under the mat...a few of us are staying at you place.

Thanks for the tip of the hat, CajunKing. I can highly recommend Smokin' D's to those planning to travel to St. Augustine for the February outing. I do want to reiterate, though, that it's take-out only.

See that? Now you really disappointed Chi Town Diner. He was hoping you'd share a bed room with him

I was actually looking at Smokin D's as an option for an official meal then realized it was take out only. Still sounds like a great "unoffical" stop.

What's wrong with trunk dining?

I think that "trunk dining" is depicted on the Roadfood coat-of-arms!

We should have 1 bbq joint as an "official stop" both Gator's and Smokin D's are preliminarily speaking, excellent options but I would prefer a sit down place which Gator's offers.. It's too early to make any decisions and perhaps we should let "the people vote" eventually.
 
I still have Sandra's 50th birthday weekend trip which is actually next week, then the Iowa trip and then our San Francisco/Yosemite trip in October. After tha- full focus on St Augustine and Jacksonville.

I'm planning on eating at Gator's in November when I'm in Jax for business.  Probably the evening of the 4th before heading home.  Will provide pics, and menu scan if I can.   Also get a sense of the size of the space, number of tables, etc.  Will also be scouting several of the craft breweries sprouting up in Jax. Might do a refresh on Beach Road Chicken on night.  Or try some of Whit's Frozen Custard in Atlantic Beach just off A1A (these all might be out of many attendees way, so much food so little time).  I'd be happy to visit any other Jax or Jax Beach place any one else wants to know about. 
 
For ex-swabbies, the USS Adams DDG1 is supposed to become a museum along the River front in downtown Jax.  I don't think it's been towed there yet from Philly or Baltimore, but as an old Adams Class sailor (USS Lawrence DDG-4) I intend to swing by the berth and see what's happening.

I look forward to your report back on Gator's. It would be nice to include at least one BBQ stop, and since  we will be including stops in both Jacksonville and St Augustine ,  if most folks prefer Smokin D's in St Augustine I'm fine with that too, but keep in mind, its take out only. Perhaps we  can lure Buddyroadhouse to join us and bring his set up table? 
Beach Road Chicken Dinner in Jacksonville which was in the most recent Roadfood book is also high on the list too.

I'm looking forward to this, I love a winter trip to somewhere warm. Besides with this year's (2015) Glee Club trip I met my new best friend ever.

In October after our San Francisco/Yosemite trip, planning will be in full force. We will be centered in St Augustine but we will have planned stops in Jacksonville too.
