The Fort Lauderdale Air Show (4/28 – 4/29)
The rain didn’t stop us from enjoying some good eats at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale Air Show. Hag, the Z’s and other friends and family flew in to enjoy the Air Force Thunderbirds and some of the coolest aircraft in the U.S. Military. The andouille burgers made the perfect compliment to the show.- juicy and cooked to perfection, I couldn’t think of a better food to enjoy with friends and family on the rooftop SkyLounge at the Crooked Palm!
