    Barrique: The New Resturaunt in Avondale




    Jacksonville has seen a rise in new restaurants this year. The newest restaurant in Avondale is Barrique.  Barrique is all about enjoying life with good friends, good food, & good wine. The name is derived from the old world dialects of France, Italy and Spain, literally meaning a small oak cask barrel used for making fine wines. 

    The three partners of Barrique, Greg Bartolotta, Rich Rapp, and Joseph Murphy, are long time friends from Long Island, NY. Both Rich and Joseph relocated to the Jacksonville area over the past 10 years to bring the idea of a conceptual restaurant here. Greg has built and operated as many as 7 successful restaurants in the NYC area. They chose to open their restaurant in Avondale due to its energy and the contributions of the surrounding community members along with its rustic look. 

    Oven Roasted Oysters, Octopus, Burrata

    Seared Tuna

    Barrique offers fabulous rustic food, artisanal cheeses, cured meats, thin crust pizza, pan pressed sandwiches, mini desserts & much more, all centered around a social sharing experience, with attentive personal service, while letting you, the guest, set the pace. The popular dishes that guests love are the Oven Roasted Oysters...   [Read More]

    Catty Shack Wildlife Sanctuary Welcomes Four Tigers And One Grey Fox




    Four tigers and one grey fox now call Catty Shack Ranch their “fur-ever” home. Their new residents came from a private facility in South Florida which had sustained damage during Hurricane Irma.  Combined, the new tigers can eat over 100 pounds in a single day.

    The first tiger is Dozer, and he was named appropriately. At just 4 years old, he weighs an estimated 550 pounds. Dozer was born on September 11, 2013. He is still adjusting to his new home and settles in a bit more every day. He is enjoying meeting all of his new caregivers and greets them with warm chuffs. The second tiger, Haley, is 15 months old and all spunk. She is the most talkative of all and loves to egg on her habitat mates! Haley was born on September 13, 2016. The last two tigers are a brother/sister pair, Rocky and Adrian. Although they are not related to Haley, they do share the same habitat and love each other dearly. Rocky and Adrian are 20 months old, born on April 28, 2016. Rocky, Adrian, and Haley have already been dubbed “The Three Amigos” by several of the volunteers.

    Piper, the new grey fox, is 2 years old and was originally born in a wildlife rehab center where her mom was being treated. Piper was born ...   [Read More]

    FSU QB Jameis Winston cited for shoplifting lobster and crawfish from Publix




    Heisman trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting $32.72 worth of seafood at a Publix grocery store in Tallahassee, Fla., on Tuesday night, Leon County Director of Law Enforcement Michael Wood said in a news conference Wednesday.

    He left with crab legs and crawfish. Before leaving the Publix, he put back the butter he had in his cart but left with the other items. We aren't sure what he was thinking but he is back in the spotlight with now indisputable video evidence. 

    Wood said Winston left the supermarket at 800 Ocala Road without paying for crab legs and crawfish shortly before 9 p.m., and when police arrived at his residence after midnight Winston said he "forgot" to pay upon being interviewed.

    "He was very cooperative and he seemed fairly honest in that he did not pay for the item," Wood said.

    SHARKS CALM STORM ON FRIDAY NIGHT 60-41




    JACKSONVILLE  – Taking advantage of an opportunistic defense that forced five turnovers, the Jacksonville Sharks improved to 2-0 at home on Friday night, beating the Tampa Bay Storm by a 60-41 count on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Jacksonville (2-2) jumped out to an early 13-0 lead thanks to the first of those turnovers. After R.J. Archer opened the game with a one-yard touchdown run. Tampa Bay (3-2) quarterback Randy Hippeard lost control of the snap on the Storm’s ensuing drive. Jack linebacker Charlie Hunt pounced on the loose ball to set the Sharks up at the Storm 16. On the very next play, starting quarterback R.J. Archer took a hard hit and left the game for one play and Aaron Garcia stepped on to the field wearing a Jacksonville uniform for the first time since 2011. Garcia needed just one snap to make an impact, throwing Mardy Gilyard open for a diving 24-yard touchdown catch that gave the Sharks that two-score lead.

    Archer bounced back after missing that one snap, playing the rest of the game under center. Following the Storm’s first score of the game – a touchdown from Hippeard to Justin Hilton, Archer fired a five-yard scoring strike to London Crawford, giving the Sharks a 20-7 lead. But...   [Read More]

    Healthy Soup Options During the Cold and Flu Season




    The variations of soups are endless given the number of different proteins, grains and vegetables one could choose. Soup is oh so nourishing and it provides hydration, electrolytes, and energy for your body. A warm cup of soup is often the go-to food of choice if you unfortunately fall ill during cold and flu season. But are all soups healthy?

    Though comforting, soup typically has a high sodium content. One Cup of canned soup often has anywhere from 480 to 890 milligrams of sodium; this can reach up to 38% of the recommended maximum daily allowance of 2300 milligrams.

    If cream is used as the foundation for soup, such as in a bisque or chowder, the fat content may rise above 10 grams per cup; that’s 90 calories from fat! So how does one justify enjoying this simple dish while still meeting healthy standards?

    One option is to cook from scratch; by doing this you can replace the salt with herbs and spices. The outcome can be successful if you are comfortable in the kitchen or following a great recipe. Unfortunately for me, I tried this myself and results were inconsistent; sometimes very flavorful and other times my soup was quite watery. Another alternative for healthy people without kidney issues is to use a potassium based salt su...   [Read More]

    A Night Well Spent @ Painting with a Twist




    Finding something fun to do in Jacksonville isn’t a very hard task, and finding somewhere to have a good drink is an even easier one. After some exploring the area, I stumbled upon Painting with a Twist in San Marco, an eclectic little painting studio that offers painting lessons with the perks of enjoying an adult beverage at the same time. The studio has a welcoming family feel as it is owned and operated by brother-sister duo and Jacksonville natives, Geri and Josh Bernard. From birthday parties, Bachelorette celebrations, or simply because you have a night off they provide the paint and you have all the fun!

    Classes for every skill level are offered every week, and also open for private party bookings if you are looking to have a special gathering. Sizes of classes vary from a ten person private party to going on forty to make for a packed house. The best part about Painting with a Twist is that no experience is necessary, every painting is taught step-by-step by an instructor on stage going at your pace. The team motto is even “Fun art, not fine art” as they want you and your crew to have fun while creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art to take home at the end of the night.

    In my class, we were p...   [Read More]

Check out 904 Happy Hour’s Bucket List of the top things to do and see before summer comes to a close! 

    1. Spend a Day on the Beach

    What better way to spend a day off then sitting in the sunshine and catching some rays? From reading a book to taking a swim, you can’t go wrong with a day at one of Jacksonville’s beaches.

    Clash of the Country Music Festivals




    (June 21, 2015 Jacksonville, FL) Summers in Jacksonville have always had a lot of events happen from concerts, summer camps, beach festivals, Fourth of July celebrations and, of course, The Florida Country Superfest. Last year’s Country Superfest was our first annual festival that sold out due to the artists who performed last year. CMA Fest last year was a week before Florida Country Superfest which worked out well. It at least gave the fans a chance to go to CMA Fest before they went to Florida Country Superfest. This year’s festival, however, was in competition against Nashville’s own CMA Fest, which is a really bad idea. The consequences for this could be low ticket sales, a lineup that may be a hit or miss line up, and frustration with the promoters who scheduled the Superfest event. So, here is a comparison or “clash” of the country music festivals……It’s time for CMA Fest vs Florida Country Superfest.

    Let’s talk about crowds. Each festival brings in a lot of people; some of them come from all over the state, even some people from outside the country. CMA and Superfest brought in a lot of crowds last year by having the best choices for headliners. When performers were announced who would be clo...   [Read More]

    Sneak Peak Of Vision For Shipyards Development Presented By Shad Khan




    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 17, 2015 – The eagerly anticipated vision to transform the Shipyards riverfront downtown property into a vibrant entertainment and leisure district was presented today by Jaguars owner Shad Khan and team president Mark Lamping on behalf of Iguana Investments, a new development entity created by Khan specifically for the Shipyards project.

    The vision was presented at the Jaguars’ annual state of the franchise event, where updates involving the Jaguars were shared with City leaders and news media in attendance, and online with the public via live streaming.
