Well, well, well. The first beads of the season have been caught (along with God knows what else) and the party is on! That’s right, the Gras is here. So fasten your seat belts and take your antibiotics because we are in this for the long haul. I don’t want to hear any moaning. But before you sustain any further brain damage, please take the time to read the scoop from last week. It’s 180 proof Boozie Beer Nues. So read it, but make sure to call an Uber afterward.
The people take over DI
The good times got rolling on Dauphin Island on Saturday, Feb. 9, as the people paraded down Bienville Boulevard. Folks threw beads, moonpies and other trinkets from cars, trucks, boats and other moving things on wheels.
They were accompanied by some familiar faces from Joe Cain Day, including Chief Slac himself and the popular Wild Mauvillians, who handed out their prized oyster necklaces.
We hear the most disturbing part of the parade were the creepy “King Cake babies.” Yikes! You have to watch those things, they will choke you!
Mobile’s first parades roll this weekend with the Conde Cavaliers getting the season kicked off on Friday night.
Laissez les bon temps rouler! The Boom Boom is here!
Nixon’s softly opens its doors
Boozie’s spies were out in full force Sunday night at the not-so-soft opening (that sounds kind of dirty) of Nixon’s, the newest restaurant/bar on Old Shell Road!
The brainchild of the masterminds behind Callaghan’s, Nixon’s carries the name of the old family drug store at the corner of Old Shell and Kenneth Avenue. Midtowners have been waiting with baited breath for weeks now for Nixon’s doors to open, so when they did, the crowd showed up in force.
Boozie’s spies were happy to see a fine selection of adult beverages, as well as an equally fine selection of steamed sandwiches, wraps and cool appetizers. The children in attendance kept the shuffleboard table busy, so Boozie’s spies didn’t get a chance to see how it stacks up to Callaghan’s, but I am sure it’s fabulous.
This place certainly promises to be MiMo’s newest hot spot!
Nixon’s opens for good this Thursday, so if you want to take your Valentine somewhere new ….
Last weekend, two high-profile weddings took place on the same night.
Former St. Paul’s and Alabama QB Jake Coker married Sarah Jeffries at what our spies said was a “magical” ceremony and “dreamy” night in general.
And 92Zew DJ Maggie Smith, aka “Mystic Marge,” married her beau, Alex Eynon, in what can only be described as “mystic matrimony.” Our spies say they had “the most killer reception band ever!” I would expect nothing less!
We wish both of the happy couples all the best and many years of happiness together!
Well kids, that’s all I got this week. Make sure to throw me something weird (sausage?) at all of the parades! And just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or some plain ol’ DI parade lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
