Ted will be in Pensacola doing some training before shipping out to the middle east. I'm going to drive down to meet him Saturday, June 6. It's been a while since I've been to Pensacola, so we need advice on a good place to meet and eat. Of course, anyone is free to join us to eat and wish him a safe journey. A time has not been set yet. Please give us some ideas. ;-)

Oh yeah you'll drive to FL to to see Captain dog, but you won't drive to WV to see me.
Yeah I know how I rate. Thats fine, really......no really, I'm okay.:-(
4 hour drive versus 12 :rolleyes: At least you know your place :D

Add me to the list, right now I'm penciling in a trip to Florida!! :)

it's only a tad over 500 miles... but it's a chance to see BigAl and RD... :rolleyes:
Sweet! I still don't know the place or time, yet.

Place to meet and eat

It gets packed but the Fish House has a great deck on Escambia Bay and wonderful food.

Jerry's Cajun Cafe has great Po Boys

Pizza, Beer, different atmosphere try Ozone Pizza in the old Sacred Heart Hospital.

Thanks for the suggestions. Have you ever tried the Bonefish Grill? I was doing a city search and it's looking good to me. http://www.bonefishgrill.com/

Benny, just an update...The Bonefish Grill doesn't open until 4PM and Rocket Dog would like for us to tour the Naval Aviation Museum. We came up with the idea that we would drive down Saturday morning, meet around noon to tour the museum, drive over to eat and hang out, then possibly come up with something else to do that night before going to the hotel. Whaddaya think?

Of course, everybody else is welcome to join us. :)

EDIT: He doesn't arive until Tuesday and then he will contact me with his itinerary.

Sounds like a plan. I looked and saw that the Blue Angles are NOT going to be in town on the 6th... they are doing a show up in Illinois or Indiana. :-x But the museum tour is a great idea. There is a D-Day anniversary event going on, the Marine Band is playing a concert.

I made reservations at the Motel 6 for Saturday night, real decent price, it's the one on Plantation Road.

I guess I should plan on hitting town about 11:00 - 11:30 am ??

I know there is a few good ones in fort walton beach &destin(basically the same place all on or in the water)just 50 miles east of pcola .

We hope to see you there. Rocket Dog (Ted) is a captain in the Navy and is an outstanding and somewhat goofy guy...a meeting not to be missed. ;-)

11-ish sounds good. Don't forget we're on central time so you will gain an hour. We might want to get a quick bite before the tour. You wouldn't want me to wither up and blow away. :rolleyes:
