Festival D'Vine

It was my privilege to shoot Festival D’Vine on November 9. This was the sixth year for the festival run by Catholic Charities. The event took place in San Marco Square under cool, clear skies. Over 300 varieties of wine were available for sampling along with foods from some of Jacksonville’s finest restaurants. A portion of the proceeds go towards Catholic Charities to help support their programs in the community. It is a great event for a good cause. For more information go to the Catholic Charities web site. If you enjoy good wines and friendly company, be sure to check out the Festival D’Vine in 2010. To view images of the event go here.


Be sure to mark your calendars for April 10, 2010 – this is the date for Black and White Ball. This is another great event sponsored by Catholic Charities. See you there!

January 17, 2009 – Dining

The Outback Crab Shack - Simple Dining and oh so good!

The Outback Crab Shack - Simple dining and oh so good!

Simple buildings. Simple setting. Simple menu. Simple cups. Simply good food.

I had a chance to dine out with some buddies at the Outback Crab Shack at Six Mile Marina on State Road 13 and it was a delight. There is no pretentiousness here, but there is an abundance of great food and a friendly atmosphere. I have never been to the OCS when there was not a crowd there, but on this chilly, no, make that cold, Saturday evening our group had the place almost to ourselves. The service was good and the servers friendly. I enjoyed the boiled seafood platter. Shrimp. Mudbugs. Corn on the cob. Sausage. Crab legs. All cooked and seasoned just right. Simply mouth watering. Try it out sometime, you’ll be glad you did.
