St Augustine/Jacksonville -February 19-21 2016- Not the Glee Club- All invited

It's now official.
 
Karilyn set the date. 
 
It's early in the game, and there will be much more information  to come.
 
If you're into fresh Florida Seafood, down home  Southern  food and perhaps a BBQ joint or two.. then join us. 

Early indications are that St Augustine will be the base

That would mean I would have to exclude myself

Glee Club events customarily fall on Presidents Day.
Since we agreed to the weekend after President's Day weekend, it is officially not a glee club event
BTW, I expect that YOU WILL attend, even if I have to HUNT YOU DOWN and find you (same with Buffetbuster too)
 
I know ChiBears15 is in and I expect he will help co plan this.

Hope to make it!  Dayna and I usually go down to Florida in February to visit her dad each winter.  I have a cousin in Jacksonville I'd like to see and St. Augustine is the city I'd really like to visit on our next trip.

Now that someone fun is going, I'll really make an effort.  I was a little apprehensive about sharing the room with wanderingjew, Sondra and big boy!

Billyboy,
 
I'm hoping you and Dayna can join us
 
chickenplucker,
 
I look forward to meeting you.
 
I'm thinking Karilyn will help plan the weekend too.

Sounds great to me!  I will try very hard to make it.  
But what will we wear on Saturday night if this is not the Glee Club?

St. Augustine is a historic town with some beautiful buildings.  Two tourist sites the group should hit in between restaurants are the St. Augustine Lighthouse (you can climb to the top for an awesome view!) and the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument (a Spanish fort from the 17th century).
 
I am most likely in and super excited for this!

I'm seriously looking at this.  I'll be spending 3 days in the JAX area (but not down in St Augustine) the first of November, if there's any place you want checked out, on the dinner side of things (can't do the lunch or breakfast runs on this trip).   Not sure how long you want to spend in JAX, as there are more RF things in S.A. But there are several fish camps and small seafood places around.  In addition to Singleton's there's also Chowder Teds on the east side of town.  And south there's Blue Crab, Clark's Fish Camp and Julington Fish Camp around Old Bull Bay.  Outside of the small chains, for BBQ there's Gators on the  west side of 295 and The Pig down where Rte 1 meets the Old St Augustine Road.  Gator's is a real little hole in the  wall type of place and I'd have to check their hours and open days, but could do that on my way back since I have to stop in Macclenny.

Hoping you can join us next February.
Although it's too early to determine our agenda,  although we will likely be centered in St Augustine we will check out places in Jacksonville as well. I did notice that it appears Jacksonville/St Augustine has a very weak BBQ presence on Roadfood. I checked out some of the reviews on the web for Gator's and it seems like it's a winner. Any suggestions you have would be welcomed.

Just curious, but was there a reason that this event was moved from Presidents Day Weekend?

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.
 
Really 3 reasons
 
- this is not an official glee club event. ChiBears15 and I agreed we're going to Jacksonville in 2016 , Glee Club or not  (in Mayor Al's words,"the Glee Club is over") Danny thought it would be better to do this in late February or Early March as there may be less of a chance for adverse weather for those who are traveling (not that one week would make any differerence)
 
- airfares are incredibly expensive over presidents day weekend and from my experience they don't get better with time, only worse.
 
- and most importantly of all- Karilyn set the date

I'll definitely do a drive by for hours, if I can't stop or get TM'd.  If I stop I'll get pics too.  I might be able to talk some folks into stopping on the way home from a regatta in early October, albeit we usually do pizza at Moon River (good craft beer selection there)  I'll scout some more too as I'm in the market for 3 dinners in November.

I'm counting on you to coordinate the events. My roadfood experience in St Augustine is limited to Saltwater Cowboys(which I think would probably make a great Saturday evening gathering) and some Italian restaurant.. Of course we have to include O Steens either as an official or unofficial stop.

You're right- I meant to type "co-coordinate" 
I type very quickly and never double check  or spell check anything- too busy

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!

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.
