My Pensacola—Summer Burdick

Name: Summer Burdick
Day Job: Media Consultant, Cox Media
Pensacola Resident Since: 1996

Good Eats: My absolute favorite restaurant, without a doubt, is Global Grill! I love to get different tapas to share. My all-time favorite tapa at Global is the Baby Warm Water Lobster Tails. If you’ve never tried them, you’re missing out! A close second to Global would be a cheeseburger at Jerry’s Drive In.

Retail Therapy: I’m a big believer in retail therapy. I really get excited when I find something unique. Great spots to snag a unique look for your closet or home are Indigeaux Denim Bar & Boutique, Lee Tracy and Artesana.

Watering Holes: It depends on what time of year it is, but some of my favorites are Paradise Bar & Grill, Sandshaker, Hub Stacey’s, Wisteria Tavern and the Wine Bar.

Nightlife: Can’t go wrong with Seville: End O’ The Alley or even Phineas Phogg’s, if the mood strikes me. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my parents met there.

Outdoors: We are pretty spoiled when it comes to outdoor activities around here. I love being near or on the water. Paddleboarding, tubing, swimming, boating—nothing makes my day like seeing dolphins!

Arts & Culture: Every year I look forward to the Saenger’s Broadway Series. Last year, my favorite show was “Elvis Lives,” and this year I’m really looking forward to “Rock of Ages” and “The Addams Family.”

Never Miss Events/Festivals: My all-time favorite time of the year is Mardi Gras, and Pensacola knows how to put on a party! Fiesta Celebration, the Greek Festival, DeLuna Fest, the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival and the Seafood Festival are musts, as well.
