Bar 57: Squid Lips
We had dinner and drinks sitting on the outside deck of Squid Lips.

Squid Lips decided that they needed a beach so they built one! They had live music playing (always a plus in our book) and we would have sat at these tables for another drink it we didn't have another bar in the area we wanted to visit.
Bar 58: Bonefish Willys
This reminded me of a backyard party on the water. Again, the live musician did his best to set the mood. It took a while to get a seat at the bar and the wait for a table outside was about 45 minutes but as it is with these places it's worth it.
We sat at the bar outside. I had a Kona Firerock Pale Ale and Ryan had a Pina Colada. The Pina colada wasn't great, we've definitely had better. You can tell this is a local hang out and that just helps the atmosphere. You almost feel like an outsider visiting Cheers for the first time.
So,as always, there is a tie-in to the quote we start off with on the blog. In some ways it is realted to our beach bar trip or just a snap shot of that time in our life. On April 20th, we welcomed Kona in to our household. She is an 8 week old great dane and we're already in love. Not surprisingly, we've been thinking about a puppy for a while and we were brain storming names on one of our October beach bar trips. The name Kona came up and it just stuck. We're really looking forward to finding some bars where she can join us.
