Off to Destin

As we are only 50 miles from Destin, we decided to make a quick trip over there.  We have been checking the weather forecasts and decided that today was going to be a good day.  Until we got up this morning and it was so foggy.  The fog was supposed to burn off around 10:30 or so.  Well it didn’t, but we left anyway hoping it would eventually burn off.  It really never did completely.  We’ll go back again in a few weeks.

It reminds me a little of Myrtle Beach but on a smaller, less glitzy scale.  We had lunch in this great Irish pub called McQuires. I had the beef dip and Ken had fish and chips.  Both were very good, drat should have taken a picture of the food.   What a fascinating place.  There are dollar bills EVERYWHERE, hanging from the ceiling, walls.  Story is that when they first opened the first tip the waiter got he signed it and put up on the wall.  People have been doing it ever since.  They say that there is over 1 million dollars hanging up there.  They also have their own micro brewery there.  I had a glass of one of their brews and it was very good.  And they also brew their own root beer.  We will definitely go back there.

  1. McGuire's Pub, what a great place. Green beer on St Paddy's Day? Great times.

  2. McGuire's is fun! We have been here for almost three months and not made it to Destin for a meal there:(

  3. Wow! Looks fascinating. How was your Christmas away? Wish you guys a happy new year!!! Xo. Mikey and Robz

  4. Funny - I am putting a blog together on the No-Name Pub where we had lunch yesterday. Same thing - dollar bills everywhere!
