We’ve been eagerly watching the build-out of the space formerly occupied by The BookMark in Atlantic Beach,  as it’s transformed into the new, laid back restaurant  M Shack.

Atlantic Beach’s Acoustic Night…

….may be over for the 2011 season, but we’ll be featuring some acoustic performances from The Beaches Online musical archives from time to time, to tide us over until next Spring when it begins again. Here’s a performance by Danny Dornan. A lovely performance; the videographer ought to have stood still rather than roaming the […]

The Last Acoustic Night of 2011

  If it’s schmaltzy to say, “Thank goodness for Mike Shackelford,” then we accept the schmaltz.  We’re sentimental about living in a small, coastal town, where neighbors wander over to the park for an open-mic style Acoustic Night each month on a Sunday evening – May through October.  The city of Atlantic Beach sponsors the […]

A Sunday Brunch of…Pizza?

I awoke late on a Sunday morning craving one thing — breakfast pizza. Where can you get pizza for breakfast? And no, I wasn’t craving a pepperoni pizza, or even a supreme pizza. I wanted eggs, bacon…you know, breakfast pizza. A quick look at my Facebook upon sitting up in bed greeted me with the […]

Last night about 75 families with kids at Atlantic Beach Elementary (ABE) gathered outside the school, spread the blankets or beach towels on the ground (or maybe a comfy beach chair, just sayin’) and waited till the sun went down and the stars came out.  The family-friendly movie Rio was shown on the giant screen […]
