What a beautiful weekend we saw last week! Gorgeous for walking outdoors, and even on the beach! I enjoyed both.

While strolling Seaside last Saturday I ran into Bill and Heavenly Dawson, Lynn Nesmith, Leah Stroble, Willie Mason, and Judy Long sitting outdoors, soaking up some rays in front of the Airstreams. While there, I devoured my first yummy grilled mozzarella, tomato and basil sandwich from the Melt Down on 30A before trekking on to do some exploring around WaterColor. 

And then, of course, there was the Super Bowl. A big pot of homemade chili, Mexican dip, po' man's caviar, and red wine, of course, made for a nice settled-in evening of cheering on our favorite team.

That evening on Facebook, and the next day in the office, everyone was talking about their favorite commercials. For me, it was the Budweiser Clydesdale, and the cute Cars.com wolf cub scored a close second. Amazingly, no one I have talked to remembers the wolf cub but me. He was adorable! 

Hubba Hubba gave its 18th annual Red Bar performance Super Bowl Sunday and many supporters turned out to cheer  on the godfathers of 30A music (Duke Bardwell, Franko Jackson, and Billy Garrett), including some fellow musicians. The Dread Clampitts were there: Balder Saunders; Kyle Ogle and his wife, Jackie, and new baby, Luke; Kyle’s mom Nancy; Kenny Oliverio and April Poklemba; and John Reinlie, who sat in on drums and dueling washboards with Franko. Forrest and Pharrel Williams, Neil and Winona Sebree, Marcus and Whitney Buckner, Brian Wise, Ladie Bea and Wayne Carlisle, Buz and Susan Livingston, Oli Petit, Lauren Reinlie, Gail and Steve Underwood, Paul Masters, Billie Gaffrey, Dwight Ward, Eileen West and her niece Kelsey Foster, Shelly Swanger and Linda Gudnason, Paige and Mark Schnell also enjoyed.

Lisa Hinds held a grand opening reception at her new Gordie Hinds Contemporary Art Gallery last Saturday night. Susan Lucas, David and Sally Smith, Robin Beans, Michael Granberry, Ray and Vickie Dollar, Candace Abuvala, Claire Bannerman, Anne Lovell, JoAnn Graham, Lynn Nesmith, Catherine Dickson, Kelly and Billy Buzzett attended.

Tony Lange, Jane Soloman, and Julie McNabb were among the sell-out crowd at the Tasting of Champions held at Sandestin's Coral Ballroom last Saturday night.
