THE ALLIGATOR FARM IN ST. AUGUSTINE CELEBRATES ITS 125TH ANNIVERSARY
The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park this year celebrates its 125th Anniversary. The beloved Northeast Florida destination will mark its century-and-a-quarter birthday with a wide range of celebrations and special events, most notably the opening of a brand-new attraction, Oasis on the Nile.
A History of Crowd-Pleasing and Conservation
The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park was founded in 1893 as a small exhibition of Florida reptiles, and it soon became a quintessential Florida attraction. In 1937 it was purchased by W.I. Drysdale and F. Charles Usina, who began acquiring additional animals from other alligator farms, zoos, and museums, and by the 1950s, The Alligator Farm had become world famous. In the 1970s, scientists from the University of Florida began research on the premises, and exhibits were improved, with additions including the theater, outdoor amphitheater, and the stunning rookery boardwalk.
Since 1989, The American Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) has extended accreditation to The Alligator Farm, elevating the institution to a select list of zoos, aquariums, and other zoological facilities throughout the nation recognized for the quality and care of their collections.

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.

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.

Gentlemen Of The Road St. Augustine Stop Over Recap
St. Augustine FL - “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” was the biggest event that has happened this year and 904 Happy Hour went down to St Augustine’s Francis Field get the low down. I got to go down to Francis Field both days of the festival to check out the music and the crowd. From observing the number of attendees, it was said that there were at least 30,000 people that attended the festival. The line-up contained 12 bands for the two day festival. Mumford and Sons was the headliner for the festival and they performed a great show and gave the best performance their fans have ever seen. What also makes this a big event is that this was the final show for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover and St. Augustine was the last stop. This festival was very artsy and brought many attendees from Jacksonville to Tampa and some people from out of the state as well.
Day 1 went off smoothly and showcased Willy Mason, Thao and the Get Down and Stay Down, The Walkmen and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Each band gave a great performance and had their unique style. I categorized some of these bands as alternative, indie rock, or indie folk band. Each band performed a one hour set and I thought they all did a great job. When the night was over... [Read More]
