    Thanksgiving Day Block Party @ Pete's Bar in Neptune Beach




     

    Neptune Beach Fla - What started as one lonesome bartender has evolved into a beaches tradition that many depend on as part of their holiday routine. Thirty years ago, one bartender was working on Thanksgiving Day and called his friends to keep him company. The friends showed up, along with the bartenders’ relatives and the rest is history.

    Year after year, speculation always surrounds Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s Bar – is it happening? Is security cracking down? Can you bring drinks into the area? The reason for speculation is a result of how big the celebration has become. According to Nancy Jensen, owner and granddaughter of original owner, Peter B. Jensen, Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s started getting big 5 years ago. “We advertised the first couple of years, but now its word of mouth. We’re also open Christmas Day since a lot of people want to congregate at the bar if their family is out of town and the help is always voluntary.”

    If you’re planning to attend this year’s Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s, leave your Bloody Mary at home and follow these simple steps: •    Pay attention to entry points – the area will be barricaded off ...   [Read More]

    Visit Devils Den - Swim, Snorkle and Scuba Hot Spot.




    Visit one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den -- an underground spring inside a dry cave in central Florida. The remains of many extinct animals from the Pleistocene Age (2 million - 10,000 years ago) were discovered at Devil's Den, including the bones of early man, dating back to 7,500 B.C.

    The pleasant year-around temperature of 72 degrees in the Den allows comfortable diving, winter or summer. On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the cave's chimney. Hence, the early settlers called the place Devil's Den.

    You'll find open water and cavern diving at its best & will be fascinated by the rock formations with stalactites and 33 million year old fossil beds, truly a natural wonder. On a cold winter morning you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den.

    Crystal clear water, year round 72 degree temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds, and much more. Devil's Den is truly a natural wonder. Bring the family and enjoy a day of fun and relaxation at Devil's Den.

    It's back: Coca-Cola reintroduces Surge soda




    Fans thirsty for a taste of ‘90s nostalgia – or those who are simply craving a citrus-flavored sparkling beverage with a kick – can rejoice in the news that SURGE is back after a 12-year hiatus.

    SURGE, which debuted in 1996 and was taken off the market in the early 2000s, is making a comeback thanks, in part, to a passionate and persistent community of brand loyalists who have been lobbying The Coca-Cola Company to bring back their favorite drink over the last few years. SURGE is Coke’s first discontinued brand to return to the market.

    The SURGE re-launch represents two additional firsts for Coke. The brand, which will be offered in its original formula in 12-packs of 16-oz. cans featuring the same retro design from yesteryear, is part of an innovative distribution deal between Coca-Cola and Amazon. A limited supply of SURGE will be sold exclusively through the online retailer atwww.amazon.com/surge, marking the first time Coke has distributed a product solely through e-commerce.

    “If expectations are met, this may be only the first of a variety of efforts we explore to launch niche products through e-commerce relationships,” said Wendy Clark, president of sparkling and strateg...   [Read More]

    Named by Time Magazine as the "Best Album of the 20th Century" and #46 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Exodus is also the best-selling reggae album of all-time, with over 30 million copies sold worldwide.

    Gator Country Fall Concert Series Recap




    Jacksonville, FL (November 19) From November 5 to November 16, the Jacksonville Fair arrived and provided fair-goers many shows during the two weeks. The Gator Country Concert Series also came onto the scene. It all started on Thursday November 6 with Thompson Square to kick off the concert. They opened their show with their hit song “I Got You” and performed with excellence and energy. They played their best songs such as “Let’s Fight”, ”I Can’t Outrun You”, “Glass”, “If I Didn’t Have You”, and “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not”. I found their show great and a great start to the concert series.

    The next day was not what was expected. With a cold front coming in, many people didn’t show up to see Lindsay Ell. She is a new upcoming country artist from Canada, and was an awesome guitar player. I do wish for more female guitar pickers, and this was something new for Jacksonville. Her performance was great, and she can rock out on a guitar. Her songs that got her on country radio are “Shut Me Up”, and “Trippin on Us”. I hope she comes back when the weather is better so everybody can see how awesome she is.
