Softshell Crabs at Sandbar Restaurant

After lunch I headed back to the motel in Bradenton and took a nap. A few hours into my nap, my phone rang. It was Kevin! They had finished with the tux fitting and all the wedding work for the day and wanted me to come to their hotel so we could all go out for drinks.

We went to a sports bar so that we could watch the Rays game. After being there for an hour or so, Kevin told me that Kristin's family had invited me to get dinner with them on Anna Maria Island.

The dinner was great and it was good to meet Kristin's family. I already knew her sister because she lives in Chicago but I had never met her friend Liz, who is absolutely adorable! I ordered the soft shelled crab with shrimp, red skinned potatoes, and asparagus. It was fantastic! Kevin said he wished he had ordered what I ordered.

After dinner, Kevin and I drove back to Sarasota to meet up with the groomsmen. After a few more hours of hanging around at a bar, we went back to the groom party hotel room. I was exhausted by that point, so I went back to my motel room and crashed for the night.
