Black or Blu(e) Party at Blu Mangrove Grill

Blu Mangrove Grill has become one of our FAVORITE New Places to go......for great FOOD; MUSIC and ATMOSPHERE!  It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and right on the water with Yachts & Boats in the 'backyard'!  It's kind of like Palmetto's version of Marina Jack!

Our Party will be on the outside deck (PLEASE watch the video following this post) and we are having TWO (2) Different Musical Entertainers for you!  

Karen & the BIG Bad Wolves..............AND the Florida BLUES Brothers!!!  PLUS + we will have a little 'excitement' for you (Blues' Brothers STYLE !!!!!

If it is a bit 'chilly', do NOT worry...........they have huge heaters on the deck (you can see them in the video).  We were there in December and were perfectly comfortable!  ALSO..........there is an inside restaurant & bar as well.

SUGGESTED "Party Attire" is either "Black or BLU(e)"

    Not sure, I usually have 1 too many drinks to remember things clearly, however both Paul and you know me. I am the one who loves to dance and am a bit wild and expressive on a dance floor.

    Michael Bales, are you in the video I did of the Florida Blues Brothers? That was shot last year at the Polo Grill and I distinctly remember you dancing!!!
