We have had a surprisingly nice addition to the bar Scene in Fernandina Beach. Two Guys And A Sports Bar has recently opened up on 8th Street, just a couple of blocks from the inn. This is not your ordinary sports bar.
This is not a big bar, maybe 6 stools and 8 high-top tables, but they have a total of 15 TVs, all HD, ranging in size from 20″ sets in the bathrooms to the two big eight foot wide by 4 foot high projection TVs in the main room. They can play up to eight different games at a time and have a SoundDog remote speaker system so that you can listen to the game you want at your table.
We at the Addison appreciate it when people “do things right” and the two guys have obviously put some thought into their bar. Women are welcome and are made to feel welcome with little touches like purse hooks uder the bar and a wider, higher foot rail at the bar. And the place is clean.
Another nice touch is that this is a non-smoking bar inside. They do have a small smoking area outside. It is small but big enough for a couple of tables, a few chairs and a pool table. A couple of steel roll-up shutters expose two large screen TVs just for the outside viewers.
Besides beer and wine they have a small food menu with Italian subs, Reuben sandwiches, hot dogs steamed in beer and a Cuban sandwich. After 9 you can get hotdogs or grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. Lee and Grant have eaten there and say the food is great.
We like the place so much that we have added a $20 gift card to the bar in with our Romance Your Man package. Every inn has a romance package, typically with stuff that women find romantic, you know, roses, chocolate covered strawberries, horse drawn carriage rides. We have one of those too. We call it the Romance Your Woman package for guys that want to make their girl feel special. For women that want to make their guys feel special we also have the Romance Your Man package that includes a 6-pack of cold beer in the room on arrival along with a big bag of chips, a $20 gift card to Two Guys and, for the next day, a picnic basket loaded with sandwiches and snacks, perfect for an afternoon at the beach. We’ve only had this Package posted for two weeks and have already had one taker. She knows how to treat her guy!
The economy is on peoples minds a lot these days but there are signs of promise all over Fernandina. Two Guys just opened, another vacant building will open soon as The Fernan-Deli and small construction projects are popping up all over. And even if the economy isn’t exactly booming there is always fish to catch and there was a line-up at the boat launch this morning with people wanting to take advantage of the warm weather.
