Blue Week Continues...

As I was heading downtown  Wednesday for my afternoon run, a sign caught my eye;

" Blues Week all Week at PNJ.com"

"Awesome!" I thought, "This is perfect! Blue Week must be catching on..." :) 

Nicole and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a picture of the sign, so later that night after some Hopjacks Trivia we ran out on Cervantes Street, ignored the honking vehicles passing by, and snapped a photo of the sign in all of its glory:

 

Definitely worth the late night jog down one of the sketchiest thoroughfares in Pensacola...

To keep the spirit of  Blue Week going strong, yesterday I met up with a friend at the Blue Dot Barbecue on the corner of DeVilliers and Wright Street. This is a place that if you haven't visited, you should. I feel as if I am stepping back in time when I enter the building. It may be due to the fact that they don't have air conditioning, but I like to think it is because of the friendly people and 1950's atomosphere. Either way it is by far the best burger in town.

When you walk up to the counter the man won't say a word, he'll just look at you; this is your cue to order. There aren't any menus, so just say you want one "all of the way." When he returns he'll hand you a brown paper bag with a burger inside. He'll look up at you once more; this is your cue to say what kind of soda and/or bag of chips you want. He'll turn around to the 1950's Coke cooler located behind the bar and return with your chips and drink in a separate brown paper bag. He'll then say a price and you pay. Cash only. It's something that every Pensacolian should experience at least once.

 

Today is the rehearsal for the Blue Angels out on Pensacola Beach. For all of you heading out that way make sure to take some sunscreen and plenty of water. It's going to be a great show! I plan on heading out early tomorrow morning and enjoying the Saturday show.

Don't forget that tonight in Gallery Night. I will be playing at Digital Now on the corner of Palafox and Wright Street  from 5:30-9:00. This months theme for Gallery Night is Red, White and Blues! Should be fun!

Today's song pick is KT Tunstall's cover of Bob Dylan's Tangled Up in Blue!

 Enjoy your Friday!
