Southeast Discussion, The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet in Cadillac Clubs, Local Chapters and Regional Forums; ^I'm liking the night grilling idea. A cookout on the beach with friends sounds AWESOME!
Hmm. What about Lion Country ...
Matt and I talked earlier this afternoon and figured like this:
Friday: Lion Country Safari in the mid-morning or early afternoon.
Friday Afternoon/Night: Beach BBQ. I'm hoping WPB has those grills you can use on the beach, then everyone chip in a bit for some food or whatever. Can't be too much for some hamburgers and hotdogs, or even some chicken. Grilled food is cheap and easy to cook for people. Maybe hang in one of the hotels, or at somebody's house who's local after.
Saturday: Car museum in the afternoon
Saturday Night: From the museum, convoy to the Mai Kai for dinner.
Sunday: For those who are interested in staying (like Matt) or those who are local, we can figure something out. Dave and Busters from the Lounge thread would be kick ass, it's a giant arcade and restaurant.
I'm 30 miles north of WPB in Hobe Sound. It got chosen for a few reasons actually... lol
1. The epic museum that used to be a LaSalle dealership. I thought it was fitting.
2. There's a major airport in WPB.
3. Sal lives there, so he practically HAS to show.
4. Hobe Sound, Florida has NOTHING. The entire city is contained on US1. That's it. The rest is neighborhoods. We have no movie theater, no car dealerships, nothing. It sucks.
Point taken. In any case, it would behoove someone reasonably local to pay a visit to the Palm County government center, specifically the Parks and Rec department, and ask about restrictions/permit requirements for beach BBQs. It may also give you a better idea of what's actually available in the area. Also, be sure which jurisdiction the intended beach falls under (state/county/city). Each jurisdiction may have different rules.
^So, what did they say? Or do we all have to sit here ensconced in mystery?
"Ensconced"? Am I rubbing off on you, Matt?
BBQ is still a possibility, Roo. Just tell your folks that a whole bunch of strangers from all across the country will be dropping in for dinner! Or, Friday could be the night we take in the sights and sounds of downtown Palm Beach. It's supposed to be a pretty happening place.
