Seafood Island Bar & Grille Is Now Open In San Marco
The former Pizza Palace, a culinary staple on the Square for 27 years, is now Seafood Island Bar & Grille. This third outlet of owner Charley Akel’s Seafood Express & More brand, which has locations on the Southside and Northside, opened Dec. 15 with a decidedly more island flavor and paint job. The red-and-yellow façade and thatched-umbrella patio tables stand out among its San Marco Boulevard neighbors.
The expansive menu, available daily for lunch and dinner, offers no shortage of exotic appetizers, including frog legs and gator tail nuggets. You’ll also find a variety of fish and shellfish brought in every three days — most available fried, grilled, blackened or broiled — along with combination platters, soups, sandwiches, pastas and steak and chicken plates. Entrees come in lunch, dinner and “lite” portions, the last resembling a lunch-sized dinner, as well as daily lunch specials. Gluten-free patrons can ask for their fish to be grilled on a separate cooking surface.
Currently Seafood Island is a beer-and-wine establishment in the process of obtaining a full liquor license. Happy hour, 4-7 p.m. daily, features dollar-off deals on beer (five on draft and 10 bottles) and house wi... [Read More]

The Jacksonville Beach Pier Reopened Today
After a year and a half of repairs, 625 feet of the Jacksonville Beach Pier is back open. The remainder is still under redesign and is. Hurricane Matthew destroyed 350ft. in 2016. New railings have been replaced along with the walkways.
The beach pier had closed indefinitely due to damage sustained during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and additional damage from Hurricane Irma in September 2017.
Time estimates for rebuilding the pier have consistently been between 18 months and two years from hurricane to completion. That placed the estimated completion date between May 2018 and October 2018.
The Jacksonville Beach Pier was designed to withstand 130 MPH winds or a Category 3 hurricane. Part of the initial delay in rebuilding the pier was determining what went wrong. The City of Jacksonville will not release the full study, but it appears it was an error in the construction.
It is only $3 for fisherman because not all of the pier is back open and only $1 to access. There is not a saltwater license required to fish on the pier.... [Read More]

Steve Miller Band with guests Los Lonely Boys April 2nd at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre!
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ‘60s. with albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music - and society - could be in the years to come. Then, in the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio – and impossible not to sing along with. Running through Miller’s catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz aficionados – Les Paul was his godfather – so as a budding guitarist and singer, Mill... [Read More]
