LB and I have various venues that we frequent on the weekend.
This past weekend we decided to try something different…
attend an event in Jacksonville. There was an event at the Jacksonville Landing that involved two bands and fireworks. It seemed like a good idea to head downtown and check it out. We took a few minutes to take in the Jacksonville Landing experience …but ultimately decided it wasn’t how we wanted to spend the evening.
We headed back to the car admiring the artwork along the way.
I took an evening stroll around this particular column:
As we were making our way to 95 South, we almost passed a Jacksonville landmark
The Treaty Oak
LB thought we should stop, so we did.This massive tree is approximately 250 years old. and appears to be laying on the ground. It is defined as “octopus-like”You can’t climb it! But you can read about it here
Following the tree experience, we headed to Whisky Jax (Beaches location) for dinner and live music.
This was our second time having dinner at this location and the food was just as good as we remembered. We were able to get a table up front so we could see the band and the amusing patrons occupying the dance floor.
Dinner was delicious. And it was fried.
LB and I shared a seafood platter with 3 dipping sauces, along with tantalizing French fries, and Jim Beam applesauce (brown stuff pictured below). Very tasty.The SunJammer Band was featured Saturday night. This was our first time seeing this band. They are an intriguing group and very entertaining. We had a good time and I recommend Whiskey Jax (Beach location) for a fabulous Saturday date night.
