This post is sponsored by Bonefish Grill. Down here in sunny Florida our seasons run a little milder than those of our northern counterparts. Speaking for myself in the southern part of this beautiful state I call home the seasonal changes are even milder still. In a lot Florida fall and winter are one and the same which is why thousands of seasonal residents start to flock down at this time but before they get here we have a little break of season to ourselves. For those you who aren’t in the know, here’s why we love fall in Florida.

3 Reasons Why We Love Fall In Florida

  1. It’s The Most Comfortable: As the summer temperatures start to finally break, everything cools down ever so slightly. Long time Floridians can sense even the slightest shift in seasons. The air and water have cooled down, but not too much  and everything all around is just a little nicer for the locals before the seasonal residents come back.
  2. We Get To Break Out Our Special Clothes: Again for the Floridian especially in south Florida, Fall and Winter are pretty much the same thing. So we won’t hesitate to break out our favorites hoodies, leather jackets and long pants. Yes, believe it or not we do own long pants and shoes and if the temperature drops below 70 degrees we’ll show them to you.
  3. Everybody Gets Stoned: There is special gift from the gods of the sea that comes around this type of year that makes everyone get all loopy and crazy. People will line up for miles around to get Stone Crab. This Florida Fall delicacy can be found prepared the way the elders meant it to be if you know where to look. Well look no further than Bonefish Grill.

If you have never been to Bonefish Grill then you my friend have been missing out. They have a first rate dinner and bar menu that is prepared to order by highly trained stonies2super chefs. But that’s not why we are here. Stone crab, remember? An ancient mariner text recovered by those who shall go unnamed, describe a particular way of preparing and serving these divine delicacies. Steamed, chilled, cracked and served ready to eat by the pound with their signature mustard sauce. Be sure to ask for their best wine pairings when you place your order.

Stone Crabs are locally harvested under strict regulations. They are a renewable resource of seafood as only one claw may be harvested and then the crab is released back into the wild where it’s lost limb will regrow.

Do you remember the first time you got stoned? Crab that is.
