SoWal Lunchtime at Grayton Beer Brewpub

On Valentine’s Day the SoWal Staff lunched at Grayton Beer Brewpub for some local love.

We beat the dinner crowd and opted for lunchtime bites. (Or so we thought…they were actually pretty busy!) Healthy salads, handhelds, and hearty apps found their way to the table as we chatted over the devastating Red Bar fire, and where we couldn’t wait to dine next. (Basmati’s, we’re coming for ya!)

South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival April 25-28

South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival presents great wines, fine foods, world-class tasting seminars, live music from national artists, culinary celebrities and more. It’s a weekend at Grand Boulevard at Sandestin to escape to a lifestyle where you can be yourself, dress up or come as you are, be seen or simply lay low. The only requirement is that you have great time enjoying a convivial gathering at your pace and lose yourself for the weekend.

An Evening Stroll at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach

Remembering good times at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach which sadly burned to the ground in the early morning hours of February 13, 2019. A plan to rebuild is underway and to that we say CHEERS and we can't wait!

Check out our fun video of a July evening stroll - the street scene, Louis greeting folks at the bar, The Red Bar Jazz Band doing their nightly thing, the patios, panee' chicken with mounds of mashed potatoes, and sunset at the Western Lake outfall on the Gulf of Mexico.
