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


Carl Edwards posing with Shalan


Most of the best drivers wanted to pose with Tom


And then they posed with Pete











A retired car from Dale Jr's 8 days


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