Good Eats: My favorite couples’ restaurant is Jackson’s Steakhouse. My husband and I love breaking away from the homestead and bellying up to the bar for Jacksons and Jacksons—two glasses of wine and an appetizer for $20—can’t beat that. It seems Global Grill is my go-to girls night out dinner spot. I love getting tapas at any place I can get ‘em!
Retail Therapy: I can shop for hours at The Linen Shop. Not only do I love Cheryl Hart, I love house goodies, ornaments, clothing and refreshing complimentary drinks.
Watering Holes: My main watering hole is and has been The Fish House—we’re there every Wednesday for our Manager Meetings. My other fave would have to be Wine Bar…I wouldn’t be a good Southern girl if I didn’t like a good wine bar.
Nightlife: My husband and I bonded through music, so Vinyl has been an amazing addition to downtown Pensacola. Drive By Truckers, Robert Randolph and Honey Island Swamp Band…doesn’t get better than that.
Outdoors: I love to be outdoors. Beaches are my heart and home, so luckily we have some really fantastic white sand beaches to sink my toes into. My boys are getting older now and surfing, so dropping into Innerlight to get some wax is no longer rare.
Arts & Culture: My husband and children love history and museums. Our two go-to museums are T.T. Wentworth and Pensacola Museum of Art (we did their Chagall for Children and it was a big hit!) My favorite is the Historic Pensacola Red Light District tour—my garden club, Ivy League, does it every year!
Never Miss Events/Festivals: We really live in a fantastic city filled with traditions—Fiesta, Blue Angels, Winterfest Trolley Tours…the list can go on for days!
