    Sorry, can't help. P'cola t'is about 110 miles west of here.
    Can say that Margaritaville is the worst place I ever tried to eat at.
    Lady friend from Chattanooga wanted to go there.
    I first ordered "fish and chips" and it was inedible.
    The manager was going around asking folks how was their food.
    I said absolutely awful.
    She said: Let me get you some grilled grouper which is our daily special today.
    I said OK.
    So she took away the fish & chips but what she brought wasn't even a distant relative of grouper.
    It was mullet.
    She insisted it was grouper.
    I told her to go to "Boondocks" and order grilled grouper.
    My bill was for $0.00.
    But it wasn't worth that much.

    When I have friends in from out of town, I will never take them to Margaritaville again
    no matter how much they insist.

    Parrotheads ruined everything. Seems just.

    I gave up on Jimmy when Volcano came out. That was when he sold out though he had been sneaking up to more commercial stuff every album.

    Pensacola is a cool town with a bustling little downtown area that has been gentrified. Lots of places down there to eat and shop. The big attraction is the beach, simply breathtaking white sand beach. I always hit Leitz Music on Creighton and Guitar Center but I think GC closed down. Also Blue Angels Music is awesome. They sell Eastman guitars, at least on line not sure about the store. I have purchased from them on line and they were great to deal with. I will visit if I ever get back there.

    I wish I could tell you more but all my time there was were working visits so little time for pleasure.

    Hummm, never knew Leitz had a store in P'cola. They also have stores in Panama City & Fort Walton.
    I've bought several things from them (guitars, amps & small things such as tuners.)
    I've always found them easy to deal with.
