What’s Up Amelia?

Anyway, take a stroll thru the Historic Business District, grab an ice cream at Fernandina's Fantastic Fudge and make your way to Wicked Davey's.

whats-up-amelia-07-13-09This is our weekly video of things to do on Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, Florida. There is plenty happening this second full week of July, beginning with the Amelia Island Museum of History’s exhibit with the British Crown Jewels. If you are interested in seeing this display, you need to get there soon because the exhibit leaves Nassau County, the end of next week.

Monday night, July 13, there is a Fernandina Beach Arts council Meeting at 5:00 PM and one of the items on the agenda is to discuss an Arts Related calendar for Nassau County. There are so many talented artists here, not just in Fernandina Beach, but throughout Yulee, O’Neal, Nassauville and our entire community. This would be a great exposure for ALL of our local artists.

If you just happen to be addicted to meetings, the Fernandina Beach Waterfronts Partnership Meeting will be at City hall at 5:05 on Tuesday. Why 5:05? Well, we all know about Island Time, I guess now it has been officially recognized!

At 11:30 Wednesday morning, Author Dorothea Benton Frank will be speaking during a luncheon engagement at the Ritz Carlton. Tickets are only $50.00. Published in the New York Times, her recent book, Return to Sullivan’s Island, came out the end of June, and I think this may be her tenth novel. As part of the Amelia Island Book Festival, this event is another great contribution to those who love books!

Thursday night, Blistur returns to Bike Night at Murrays Grill in Yulee. Come on out from 6 to 10 PM and take a gander of some of these fantastic motorcycles. This is a light hearted way to spend time with your friends and family, listen to some live music and grab a bite to eat.

Friday, July 17, the Amelia Community Theatre brings us Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks‚ that runs through Aug. 1st. This is the story of a woman who retires to Florida and signs up for a dance course, in the privacy of her own home. When the dance instructor shows up for the first lesson the two personalities immediately clash. This comedy proves that friendships can develop between the unlikeliest of folks!

Also on Friday is the Museum’s 3rd on 3rd. The theme this month is Three Civil War Wounds: A hero, an Irony, and a Love Story. Beginning at 5:30 PM, Dr. Bill Birdsong will give a brief history on how gunshot wounds were treated during the Civil War. Afterwards, he will tell the stories of three famous injuries of that time. Admission is free for museum members and only $5.00 for non-members.

Saturday must be a “beach day” because my calendar was blank, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find something to do. Our local Farmer’s Market and hitting a few yard sales is a perfect Saturday morning tradition!

Sunday is National Ice Cream Day! Finally, a holiday with true meaning! Anyway, take a stroll thru the Historic Business District, grab an ice cream at Fernandina’s Fantastic Fudge and make your way to Wicked Davey’s. Here you can listen to the local, up and coming band, Scotch Deep perform.
