We're off to Pensacola to celebrate the opening of Rosie O'Grady's in 1967.
It'll be wonderful to have three days of dixieland back in the same room
where it all started for Bob Snow.  As you may know, the Orlando Complex,
Church Street Station closed last year.
When Rosie's/Pensacola opened, it was one big room with concrete floors,
peanuts, popcorn and beer.  Today there is a 7 room complex with assorted
entertainment seven days a week.  Unfortunately, the music which made the
place grow and supplied the funds to start the Orlando complex is now
available only on the first Sunday of each month for brunch.
We expect to see lots of old friends, make some new ones and have a really
good time.
