My Pensacola—Mallory Wilson

Name: Mallory Wilson
Day Job: Event Coordinator, Fiesta of Five Flags
Pensacola Resident Since: Age 3

Good Eats: I’m partial to our local spots – it’s only slightly dangerous living so close to so many tasty eateries! My favorites are The New Yorker Deli, City Grocery, and Georgio’s Pizza.

Retail Therapy: Retail therapy for me means shopping for home décor. Aqua Pool and Patio and Nancy’s Haute Affairs are must shop locations for their perfect assortment of seasonal home accents and unlimited gift ideas. Celebrations is another frequent stop, especially when their holiday house is open!

Watering Holes: I’m convinced Hopjack’s Pizza Kitchen & Taproom has every beer you could ever want and then some. They even have their own house blends! The Fish House Deck is another great place to enjoy a cocktail while catching the most incredible views of the bay.

Nightlife: If there is any question of where to find me on the weekend, you must only search upstairs at Play and the back bar at Intermission. Some of the best people I know can be found here!

Outdoors: On any beautiful day, you can find me at Pensacola Beach soaking up some of Florida’s best beach views or walking among the crape myrtles in any one of our city’s parks.

Arts & Culture: Gallery Nights are a staple for my friends. It’s the perfect place to catch up with friends and see what the downtown shops have to offer.

Never Miss Events/Festivals: For every season, Pensacola has a festival or event. Fiesta of Five Flags has an entire calendar of must attend events, but my favorite is our two week extravaganza in June – Fiesta! You’ve never seen so many Pensacolians having fun. Then you head into the holiday season with The Greater Gulf Coast Arts Festival, the Belmont Annual Glass Pumpkin Patch, and The Junior League of Pensacola’s Marketbasket.
