Hot day, hot crowd for Seafood Festival
I don't think they sold as many stone crabs because of the pricing, but I did see a lot of ceviche selling and there was a very long line for lobster rolls, which always reminds me of New England. I am trying to eat raw, so the ceviche was perfect for me, I had a couple of them.
I do have one request for future events in the park -- shade. It felt like 150 degrees on Sunday and there was no comfortable place to eat and drink, I left early because of that and many others may have, too. The event itself was great. It brought out a lot of people. Most of the crowd were not from the Grove at the seafood festival. Yesterday, a very large percentage of the Grovetoberfest crowd were locals. Not sure what they says about Coconut Grove, but that's interesting.
I was told by one friend who works in a restaurant, that the overflow after the beer festival Saturday night, from Peacock Park, into the restaurants was great. After all that drinking, people stayed in the village to eat.
