The Hard Yacht Cafe is prime for rainy day drinking
Nestled in at the end of a curvy county road sits one of my favorite summertime spots: the Hard Yacht Cafe.
At least, it was one of my favorite warm weather standbys until jmgiordano told me about their new indoor/outdoor deck out back.
Now, it might be one of my all-weather hangouts.
About a year ago, owner Art Cox renovated the space, installing some curtains and making it a bit bigger.
"It turned out pretty cool," Cox said. "It looks really Key West-y and tropical." ...
"The bikers love it but the people in the big yachts love it too," he said. "On a Saturday afternoon we've got the boaters going out on the bikes and the bikers going out on the boats."
Jmgiordano was there for lunch today, enjoying some chili and a cigar by the cast iron stove.
Apparently, it's cool to smoke there when the flaps are rolled up, because it's technically not an enclosed space.
