We had a great time at Alive After Five’s Tropical Nights last Thursday. I even had a chance to check out Kat O’Briens for a cool beer and after that some delicious ice cream at Mama Loca’s. Here are some pictures of our evening and a short video.

Alive After Five Sanford FL

Despite the heat - a lot came out to celebrate Tropical Nights!

The next Alive After Five event is scheduled for Thursday, September 8 from 5pm to 8pm and will be the fun Hometown MoTown theme.

We also had a chance to stop by Kat O’Brien’s new location on First Street. I think the place definitely deserves a separate post (hopefully coming soon!), but I just wanted to let everyone know that it’s so worth stopping by!

The inside remains cozy (as we know it from Two Blondes and a Shrimp) but now has this perfect pub feel (as we know it from great Irish pubs). As expected, the courtyard is the perfect setting for a fun evening and with live bands playing on weekends on the outdoor stage this is bound to be a great nightlife destination in downtown Sanford! Best of all: rain or shine since it’s covered 😉

So if you have nothing else planned next weekend – check it out and let me know what you thought!

Do you remember Hancock?

Someone else was also very happy to be out and about!
