    Original owners of Mario's in Jax Beach are back from retirement. They just opened a take-out pizza joint in PVB called Tony's. Tried it over the weekend & was :lick:

    What was the deal with the old location(s)? They opened a second location right down the street from the original then closed it. Then they opened the new location again and closed the old one and then closed the new one again? And there was one in Neptune for a while? Shit was confusing.

    I'm pretty excited about my Dad coming up this year & walking the course with him... It's the 1st time my mom has "allowed" him to come since they changed it to Mother's Day weekend

    Take them over to Shands... That's just routine over there.

    I was in there yesterday selling them some shit and that place was left behind in the 70's...

    Also hilarious that the Swisher's of Swisher Sweet cigars were a huge part of building that hospital. We were in the "swisher" boardroom. Straight out of the 60's/70's

    Went there this past Sunday for Brunch with the wife & kid. I was pretty disappointed in their corned beef hash & the wife's crepe was poor. Step daughter got the ricotta & lemon pancakes, which were a hit.

    Loved the decor/concept & the menu looks great, but the food wasn't up to snuff. I'll go back again to check out their dinner menu, but doubt I do brunch there again

    It's not bad, but getting lettuce in place of cabbage is a must for me.

    It's a far fucking cry from burrito gallery.

    I know his involvment at Nippers was short-lived, but remember being impressed with him on Top Chef... considering doing this, despite Intuition

    I'm also trying out their "port of call" bus program this weekend. They have a bus running from Engine 15 which is a 10 min bike ride from my house to the game and back, seemed too good to pass up

    They've gone downhill, fast... despite strong initial offerings. Their attempts to do anything unique or interesting either are terrible to start, or become terrible with the constant tweaking. They've had quite a few excellent beers, but have ruined them over the years.

    Their basics offering(People's, I-10, Jon Boat) are okay. They seem content with getting those on as many shelves as possible & being slightly better than Bold City.

    E15 has some good beers... Simcoe IPA is :lick:

    When I'm at Greenroom, I drink beer from any brewery other than Greenroom... I want to like them, but their beer is pretty poor.
