Name: Larry Kuhn (My friends call me Kuhn)
Day Job: Night Supervisor Public Works Department at the Santa Rosa Island Authority. I am also working toward getting my real estate license and master’s in public administration.
Pensacola Resident Since: 1986, though I spent my last two years at LSU. Geaux Tigers!
Good Eats: You can’t beat Jerry’s Drive In, burgers and cheese fries and a cold Coke, emmm. Since I work on the beach I usually go see Derek at Hemmingway’s for their Caesar Salad (best in the tri county area). And if you’re in a crunch for time, the artists at Subway always seem to surprise me.
Retail Therapy: Bass Pro, Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle, Academy, or one of the many Thrift Stores in town.
Watering Holes: I am a Beach Guy. I usually go see my girls at the Shaker for a Banana Bushwaker, and then make a pit stop at Paradise to see J-Rat, and then head to see Miss Deb and Forrest at Paddy’s for a CarBomb or two. Then I usually go watch Timberhawk at the Islander with Charlie.
Nightlife: When I’m not at the Beach I usually go in town and see Bill and Kiley at the new Magnolia Bar. I also tend to make appearances at Hub’s or 5 ½ Bar and see Pat Bolster.
Outdoors: I’m a granola and I love to fish and Captain Rusty Smith and Skippy on the Entertainer are your best bet to catch the big ones out in the Gulf. I also enjoy running, kayaking, and riding my beach cruiser out on the beach (A1213P).
Arts & Culture: I enjoy Gallery Night and seeing the local art of Pensacola; Rhonda Barnes is one of my favorite local artists in town. I embrace the beach lifestyle of showing up in a tank-top, shorts and flip-flops anytime of the year.
Never Miss Events/Festivals: BLUE ANGELS, best day of the year. Mardi Gras, second best day of the year, Hangout Fest, Florida/Georgia and Red Dress Run in New Orleans are ones you can’t miss.
