I'm actually quite excited for that TCBY. I'm really surprised there aren't more (if any) in Jacksonville. Have been missing the White Chocolate Mousse since leaving Tallahassee.

We will most likely move to the beach if we can ever sell our house in sprawlville (Oakleaf).  This is a good look at what is going on.

Not to be nitpicky.... but you missed a ton of new things.  And a lot of the places highlighted have been opened for quite some time.  Also, Green Room has been open for about a month now.

Yes.  It was a Wachovia drive up ATM back in the day.  I think that before that it might have been a Rally's.  Could be wrong about that though.

Green Room is looking great. An awesome addition to the local beer scene.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

do share...

Yes, it has been open for a month, but their storefront sign has just gone up in the last couple weeks and they are just starting to generate traffic in that short time too. It was more so to show the inside of the place for those who are not beachside to stop right by.

When I was there, Green Room also had Swamp Head Brewery beers on tap.  Swamp Head is based in Gainesville and really good.  I'm glad the Florida beer scene is picking up.  Better late than never I guess.

Wow. A fifth third bank is actually being built? Im seeing coming soon signs everywhere and nothing has been built. Ive seen some of the signs for years now. They just put one up next to the Auto Zone on SS blvd. I wonder how long they will take before they start building something. LOL

A 'First Watch' is coming to the South Beach Plaza off A1A/Marsh Landing Parkway. It will go into the Blockbuster store that closed next to 'Yobe' (formerly yogaberry but same company). It's a breakfast/lunch chain. I've been to several and they are slammed - I think the places in the vicinity (marsh landing country club, tpc, hotels, etc.) will generate a ton of traffic. However, I won't be able to get the picture of a 'blockbuster' store out of my head - and the parking lot directly in front of the strip is small - and the surrounding lot is usually filled by Target shoppers.

It's not bad, they have a new taproom open down there and it was slammed when we went a few weeks ago.  My wife really liked their belgian white (I wasn't a fan).  I'm sure they will all get better as it grows also.  I am still a Bold City fan though out of all the craft brews in N. Fl.

Hmmm I feel a beer tasting coming on.  I prefer both Swamp Head and Intuition to BC.  Cigar City is superior to possibly all.  I have a great affinity to both the Davis' and The Miller's, but i have to go with what my palette tells me.
