A great spot to gather on Anna Maria Island!

I had the best day yesterday on Anna Maria Island!  I got to see about 10-12 of my friends from high school and it had been awhile since I have seen some of them.  We all decided to meet at the AMOB Pier at the end on Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach.  What a perfect place to meet.

All of us got there around 5:00 PM and to our surprise, they had the BEST happy hour deals!!!  $4.00 call liquors, .50 off beer and wines, and buy one appetizer and get one half off!  Let me tell you, we all took full advantage of all of these deals.  I had a frozen wine – yes, I said frozen wine.  It was a Kim Crawford blend with a grapefruit/jalepeno vodka.  Does it get much better than that!?  We all ordered different appetizers so that we could share and sample a bunch of them.  My favorite was the smoked fish dip and the calamari!!

I would highly suggest trying the AMOB Pier on Bridge Street anytime.  They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner!  And I still have not even mentioned the view – you can sit inside or enjoy the covered outdoor sitting area right on the bay! We had to sit inside because you know those Florida summer rains – it started to pour!  Check out the website for AMOB Pier!  http://www.oysterbar.net

4th of July Parade on Anna Maria Island!

The 4th of July is just a week away and we are getting everything ready for Team Duncan’s float in the 4th of July Parade!  The parade beings at 10 AM on Coquina Beach and goes the entire length of the island until noon.  We will be sharing our float with our friends at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar.  Be on the lookout for beads, shirts, water guns, and a few surprises.  The float is so much fun to be on and trust me, we get just as wet as you do.  Make sure to have plenty of water and liquids to drink during the parade as it is the 4th of July and summer is here – which means it is hot!

 

Here are a few photos of the float from last year to get you excited about the parade this year!  Make sure to give us a big wave when you see our Beach Theme float go by you.
