Daytona 500 Weekend - Feb 2008
Universal Studios City Walk
On our last evening together we went to Universal Studios City Walk
Bubba Gump's Restaurant, which specializes in shrimp and Forrest Gump trivia
We considered having dinner at Emeril's but decided to go for a more casual atmosphere
Who can pass up an opportunity to shop?
Uh oh. Looks like rain
Shalan with one of the Clearwater Beach treasures (a necklace)
With the rain starting we opted for dinner at Margaritaville, and got to shop in the Jimmy Buffett store
Leila asking for comments on a potential purchase
This is a definite!
These plates (or signs?) were pretty tempting
We had a L-O-N-G wait for a table, and John played some crazy game
Are these real?
This is real. We had to sample the Margaritaville special (liquid) fare
Pete and Shalan keeping up their spirits during the wait
What is Tom trying to convey?
Drink, menu, purchases
When we were finally seated, Leila negotiated a round of free drinks for all...and made sure we ordered the biggest margaritas, with souvenir glasses
Pete and Shalan toasting to Jimmy and Warren Buffett
What a handsome crowd!
One of Jimmy's planes
Fortunately the rain had stopped by the time we finished dinner...
So we could shop some more
We couldn't miss the NASCAR store

Most of the best drivers wanted to pose with Tom
And then they posed with Pete

On to home (well, back to the timeshare, anyway)
