We are back in Florida - same bar - for the Third Annual Florida Open. The bar has been remodeled - the side room that had some booths and a few bar tables has had the walls removed so now it is one big open room - should make for a better setup of machines and we can run them all along the back wall that faces the lake. This is a great host location - the owner let's us stay in the bar after hours and the staff is always great to us.
