First off, I must apologize on this late entry (I had started to work on it and then I hit a wall with being pooped). I have just got off of 3 days of back to back 12 hour shifts! I was ran into the ground. Whew...so, now 3 days off I blog away! My favorite past time next to scrap booking and doing my altered art.
OK...well on with it, shall we?
Adrien and I were starving by the time we got to Joe's Crab Shack (right on the river walk). We started out with an appetizer of HOT gooey crab spread in one dish and the other was HOT gooey artichoke dip. For the yumminess factor...I had to take pictures of the food! Damn this was so stink 'en good!
Can I just say...we dove right in with no speaking! Lickty split it was devoured! We had also ordered some cooling refreshments as well. Me...a kick-ass Mojito! Adrien a blended Big-Girl Margarita!
We had a fabulous server, her name was Ami! She was on the ball kept my drink filled to the brim and brought out our cardiac specials out...piping hot! Take a look at my platter...or trough more like! I can't say enough about this all shrimp combo. It was packed with about (I swear) 18 butterflied shrimp. There were 3 sections of different flavors; Coconut Shrimp, Peppered Shrimp, Plain ol'Shrimp! It was SHRIMPablous! I mean look at it...do I need to say anymore?!
And here is Ms. Adrien's all Coconut Shrimp dish. She was over the moon with delight!
If you have never been to a Joe's Crab Shack, you are in for a treat! Do not think at any minute this is where you have a 'quiet-romantic-hand-holding' date! So not happening. This is a 'live-wire-get-up-and-move-your-tush' kind of a place! What happens about every 1 1/2 hour the whole place becomes a disco. Where the servers and some customers get out there and dance! Yes...you heard me right! We as customer's get free entertainment! And it is lively with toe-tapping music and the servers know with each song what routine to do! It is fab to see the lights dim and disco balls to start spinning and flashing lights start blinking.
And the smallest customer had to get out there with (his crush...I think more like it) his server (the one in the red) and get his groove on. Little man really did dance as 'no one was watching' free to do what he wanted! All of us adults couldn't keep our eyes off our 'Little' charmer out there getting his groove on.
Joe's Crab Shack is about as famous as this little guy who works for Disney! Can I just say I really do have a love for crabs!
There really is no point for me to try to hide my love, passion for CRABS! I love them and pretty much anything from the ocean! Yes...there I have said it...I adore SEAFOOD! There really is no reason for me to even say that pork,beef,chicken are my favorite! NOT!
OK! On to some funnier (I so know that is not a word...but I am declaring that it should be) news! I was given an award from one of my blogger friends! Skeeter over at Atomic Zebra! He is just fab in my book! I just want to give you a big ol' Rob hug! Thanks so very much for bestowing with this award! It really has the 'aaaahhhh' factor. It means 'you-really-do-love-my-blog'. *blowing Skeeter a big wet kiss* I will be back to post the rules and list of the 7 choosen! I will be around soon my dear blogger friends to catch up and visit. I have certainly missed you all!
Here's wishing you a Tequila Sunrise kind of day...where ever that is for you!
("Tequila Sunrise" is a song written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, and recorded by the American rock band Eagles. It was the first single from the band's second album Desperado.)
With much love,
