Fernandina Beach is having their annual Shrimp Festival that weekend.

I used to have fun going to that years ago.   Unfortunately the last time I went the crowds had gotten larger and most of the shrimp seemed to be imported, not local.  I remember several vendors cracking open boxes of small frozen shrimp that were imported from Asian countries.

Good thread here, thanks for posting some of these points of interests. I plan on checking out a couple of breweries I've been wanting to visit. Send me a message if you want to share a pint. Cheers!

We hit up video game rescue. Good classic game store, prices were obviously retail but they weren't ebay-bad or anything. Picked up a few carts for a very reasonable price.

We have stores like this in Tampa but their selection sucks and their prices are so ebay its pointless.

Thanks for the review, they do a good job and I'm proud to be a part of the store in the arcade.
I've "tried" to go to a sport or two in Tampa but they felt like pawn shops...
