My Pensacola—Roci Tia

Name: Roci Tia
Day Job: Marketing Specialist at Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis, & Overholtz, PLLC.
Pensacola Resident Since: 2009

Good Eats: The only thing better than the delicious food at Fuji’s Sushi Bar & Grill are the lunch prices — $9.95 for two rolls and miso soup! Everyone and their mothers are at Bone Fish Grill for half-off Bang Bang Shrimp. It’s a great place to run into people.

Retail Therapy: Retail therapy is the best therapy, duh! Literally, Duh, garden and home store offers beautiful pieces from all around the world and has recently added unique, one of a kind jewelry from local artists.

Watering Holes: Hemingway’s Island Grill stays true to Ernest Hemingway’s love of the tropical island of Cuba with delicious typical Caribbean drinks like their amazing mojitos!

Nightlife: Hub Stacey’s on Saturday night not only offers free karaoke for all, but also half-off drinks for the ladies! At Tequila Mexico restaurant, salsa isn’t just what you’re eating! On Friday nights they move all their tables to make space for dancing.

Outdoors: There are so many beautiful parks that offer great hiking in Pensacola. My personal favorites include Tarkiln Bayou and Blackwater State Park where you can also go canoeing and rafting.

Arts & Culture: The Pensacola Museum of Art showcases works from local Pensacola artists, and every once in a while they have exhibitions of art work created by kids in the Pensacola school system. The T.T. Wentworth Museum is the perfect place to learn a little about the history of Pensacola and explore what the fashion and “technology” was popular in the “ye olde days.”  The museum even has a floor dedicated just for children (complete with dress up and fake food), and admission is free for all.

Never Miss Events/Festivals: Gallery Night in downtown Pensacola! Food, art, wine…need I say more?!
