If you’ve checked around, you know that there’s not one thing to do in GreaterJax™ this weekend.
Not one damn thing.
Zero. Zilch. Bupkis.
While temporarily it will seem a relief not to think about Christmas and New Year’s, pretty soon you’ll wonder what the hell happened.
Rather than wallow in your post-holidays blues, make plans to get out of town as soon as you’re rested up.
Please be advised: decisions must be made. Many are scheduled for the same weekends. Consider it a personal challenge.

As you can see, all the Florida Cracker culture – including food & restaurant culture – you’ve heard so much about is well represented in January and February.
Let yourself stay jazzed from the holidays a little longer, and then it’s time to hit the road in search of adventure again.
If not you, whom? If not now, when?
