South Florida Happy Hour now Sat Oct 29th!

 

Date:  Oct 29th
Time:  We are looking at 4:00 PM till 6:00 PM (or thereabouts) to facilitate diving on Sunday and/or other plans that evening and/or longer driving distances. 
 
Location: NOW OCEAN 234 on A1A by Hillsboro. Which is Deerfield and halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Delray basically.

 

 

 

Suggestions Were:

Location isn't set yet so I'm looking for suggestions.  Here's what I'm looking for:

  • No farther north than Boynton Beach and no farther south than Deerfield Beach (this one is open for negotiation seeing that we had a fairly strong Fort Lauderdale showing at the last HH)
  • On the water - nice but not critical if it means parking to too severely limited
  • Has a good bar/mingling area that we can reserve (something like a of couple of high-top tables where we can stand and order at the bar vs being constrained by having to sit a long table)
  • Reasonably priced if at all possible!

Post your recommendations to this thread and I'll update this post when we have a location and date. (I"m still working with the Wench so she can attend!)

 

 

Suggested Locations:

 

1. Twisted Fish Boynton you can order from the bar there are high tops as well at the bar.

2. Two Georges Boynton  there are high tops as well as the bar.

3. JB'S in Deerfield on the ocean and super cool.

4. Ocean 234 on the ocean and super cool. you can order from the bar

5. Brass Ring Pub in Riveria Beach

6.

 

 

Planning to attend:
1.  Mark aka DiveGeek
2.  Alan aka Racer184

3.  Kamala aka WreckWench

4.  Holly aka RideNdive

5.  

6.  

7.  

 

Hoping to attend (aka Maybe):

1.  
2.
3.

There are several great places in Ft. Pierce.  12A Buoy is one, plus has fabulous food.

Turns out I scheduled this on top of the Bonaire trip.  DOH!!  Going to move the date probably into October to accommodate The Wench.  Watch this space.

Thank you Mark! I would hate to miss my own hometown happy hour! ;)

 

I'll get a date worked out soon so we can also promote it in the Sept Newsletter!

Probably too far North this time... however we WILL experiment with different venues in Florida as I am here more permanently!

In Boynton there is the Twisted Fish, cool place and usually has a band.  Two Georges is great also and on the water. JB'S in Deerfield or Ocean 234 are both on the ocean and super cool.

 

Holly AKA ?  LOL  Suggestions? Used to be Holly hunter because I was good at catching lobster, but its been awhile! :-D

Great suggestions! I am voting for any place water or not that has stand up tables and we can order from the bar so we don't have to have assigned seating. It enables us to mingle more... YES!!!! 

 

And you are actually Holly aka RideNdive...which is very cool! :cool1:  Just like the lovely lady wearing the name....it was so much fun to meet you!

Twisted Fish you can order from the bar as well as Oceans 234, and Two Georges. And both Twisted Fish and Two Georges there are high tops as well as the bar.

 

Holly AKA RideNdive :-D  Was great to meet you as well and looking forward to fun adventures as well as the next happy hour!

I've been to Two Georges in Boynton - it's definitely a possibility.

I like it!

Im in!  Holly aka RideNdive    :hiya:

 

Mentioned this in an earlier post but in case it was deleted, ideas for places in Boynton are the Twisted Fish, Two Georges which is on the water and Banana boat.  All have room at the bar and high tops.  Two Georges may be the best but all are good.

Great Holly! The date is for sure Oct 29th. I want to start early at 4pm to beat the crowds and still leave people time to do other things if they want/need.

 

The venue should have GOOD PARKING and have someplace to stand as well as sit. This will let us mingle more. And pricing should be reasonable...after all flying in for a HH makes it already an expensive evening to begin with! :lol:

 

I have you on the list and we will choose the venue asap so we can get this advertised more widely! :thankyou: all!

October 29 at 4 pm  ! ! ! !

Just 12 days to go ! ! ! !  ! ! !

 

Or..... night dive Blue Heron Bridge at 19:00 with Pura Vida Divers ????????????????????

 

Or..... drink only iced tea or water at the "happy" hour and then dive BHB ??????????

 

It is possible to dive BHB in that morning, but would be starting a few minutes before sunrise.  And then attend the happy hour that afternoon.

 

Has the location been confirmed yet?   Anywhere Ft Lauderdale to West Palm Beach would be fine with me.

 

Is there any truth to the rumour that I could start about there being a halloween costume contest at the S.D. happy hour?

 

I was recently introduced to a place in Boca Raton that has plenty of tall tables, large bar, no smoking, and parking right there, that does not have Boca Raton prices.  I have been in Delray Beach for 16 years and all the places like that in this town were bought out and demolished to build skyscrapers many years ago.  There is/was one in Boynton Beach (I have not been there in a year so don't know if it has been bought and demolished or it is still there.  But I could drive by next weekend to check.)
