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)
