Sarasota Slim at MacRae’s

Stopped by the The Shed at MacRae’s on Sunday afternoon.

Because Sarasota Slim was there.

One of our favorite bands.

And they were good, as usual.

Sarasota Slim is a huge local favorite.  Usually there’s no parking, no place to sit, and long lines at the bar.

Not so this time.  We usually ride our bikes but it was 91 degrees.  Even too hot for me.  Took the Jeep and immediately found good parking.

And a picnic table to sit at.

Most of the patrons must have rode motorcycles because there were a lot of those! But still not as many as usual on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon.  With a great band.

The river wasn’t even busy and it’s still scallop season!

Terry and I think that the masses must believe that Old Homosassa is closed due to the hurricane damage.  There’s been a lot of coverage in the newspaper and on TV.

Riverside is completely closed down and some of MacRae’s motel units are under repair.

But The Shed and the Bait House is open.  Old Mill Tavern is still serving drinks and food.  Haven’t been by the Freezer but I’m assuming it’s up and running.

Just wanted to let everyone know that most of Old Homosassa is still open for business!

  1. Yup – the gerneral public was told Homosasa and Crystal River kind of floated away 😉 Glad to hear it’s open for business! I was thinking about our Mermaid Landing motel in Cedar Key, and wondering what’s left of it.
