Bushwhacked at the Flora-Bama
The colorful history of the iconic beach bar on the Alabama-Florida Line, with Joe Gilchrist, patriarch. The story of how one man learned how to cheat time, nature and circumstance by offering locals, tourists and wanderers an unmitigated, real respite from the outside world, encompassing music, laughter, libation and song. In this book you will learn the history of the island…Perdido Key, Florida; how Gilchrist forged this adult Disneyworld by creating zany events to fill the annual calendar…like the Polar Bear Dip on New Year’s Day, the Mullet Toss each spring and the barely bikini contest on July 4th. Learn also of Gilchrist’s mantra: “The principle business of life is to enjoy it! Most never do until it’s too late!” Delightful! If you enjoy life and wonder what kind of fun you are capable of having…you may want to consider getting Bushwhacked.
