Labor Day – Summers ‘LEAVING’… Happened So Fast!

Labor Day…. Already? Felt like 4th of July was just here, and now the end of summer has arrived.

Common Ground band closed down the Summer Concert Series with a great turn out last week. This year we’ve seen record number of attendees each week, enjoying the beautiful weather and fun beach tunes on The Grand Lawn at The Sanctuary. Days like last Saturday make us look forward to another summer season, and soon!

Beaches & Cream serves up the sweet treats all year round, but one summer favorite has been our Friday night, Ice Cream Socials! Laurel Palmer, Beaches & Cream manager says we’ve hit a record high of ice cream sales, especially coming from our Friday night socials. From May 1st to September 4th is exactly 18 weeks and in those 18 weeks, Beaches & Cream has gone through 45 tubs/week. Laurel has totaled that to come to approximately 800 2 ½ gal tubs of just Ice Cream!  We have two more socials left to go for the season, Saturday, August 24 and Friday, August 3ost.

Loggerhead Bar & Grill have a few summer special events occurring. Next Thursday, August 29th is the last Dive-In Movie (always a family favorite) when we show Over the Hedge. Filmed in 2006, Over the Hedge takes a deeper look at a mismatched family of forest animals who friend a scheming raccoon who fools the creatures into invading the new suburban neighborhoods for food. This movie will definitely please families of all ages!

Then the island’s spirited Seaside Buffet will continue into September where we will finish the season off on Friday, September 13th. Need one more night at Loggerhead Grill? Then we’ve got your back, as our dinner service will continue into the next evening as our last dinner service of the 2013 season. Loggerhead Grill will continue to be open 11-5pm daily for lunch and beverage service!

But, just because summer is ending means all the fun is over! September 4th starts Restaurant Week, the perfect opportunity to explore a number of restaurants at a reduced rate. Trust us, if you are a foodie, this is one “week” you won’t want to miss!
