Booze Cruise to Beach Party

For donkeys years every Cup Match Thursday (as both Swizzle’s are closed – Thanks Jay!) We hosted a booze cruise. This year we decided to do something a little different and had a party on Ft. St. Catherine Beach. We had staff, regulars and friends in attendance and I have to say that feedback was that it was better than the cruise!  We intend to build on this for next year. Annette and Chris were instrumental in getting it all organized and Chef Johnny was key in schlepping everything up to the beach in the Swizzle Van. There was lots of cold beer, swizzles and a few other libations as I recall. Alan said he enjoyed all the ladies in their swimwear…of course!

Many were floating with their cocktails in the tubes and lilos that Annette managed to blow up…who needs a pump when Annette with her iron lungs are around.  Jules started us off with her little sandwiches and a nice salsa dip..and I think she was able to rescue a few of her famous brownies from the flood in the cooler! Manager Chris assumed roll of BBQ chef and expertly (musta been those Twisted Teas!)  cooked burgers, dogs and Caroline’s fabulous ribs… all perfect on a plate with Ebony’s Spanish rice and Annette’s potato salad yum it was deeelish. Yessssss we did have about 30 minutes of liquid sunshine, but no one seemed to mind…and really we were at the beach to get wet! All in all it was a really great time….looking forward to next year already……
