I love what Glenn has to say
Glenn goes on to tell how he was incredulous like most of us after seeing the waterfront plan. Glenn is a real Grovite, he started the King Mango Strut, and what Glenn feels makes me feel that I am not so crazy for my initial and continued feelings.
Glenn's initial reaction to hearing the news was, "What? Are they crazy? It's the best damn thing in this town!"
When you think about it, Bubba Gumps and other restaurants of that genre try to emulate the real thing. We have the real thing here, you would think that some new wood, fittings and a coat of paint could keep the thing going for years. "Real Florida," or "Real Coconut Grove" is what it is. Think of Jimbo's on Virginia Key, that was one of the most popular places here around town. I think people want "real."
I didn't think of this, but Glenn says, "Many of us were away for the summer and while we were gone, the City made plans to demolish two of our bayside restaurants, Scotty's Landing and the Charthouse."
That sounds about right for the City of Miami, wasn't Coconut Grove stolen by the City of Miami in 1925 by Miami when everyone was away?
