I was 27 they were 21 to 25. I had a good time, safed a few from getting raped by some punks that did not know we were all togethere one night at shooters they had there daddys grady white ask a couple of the girls to go for a ride. girls went to the bathroom, I heard guys talking trash about how they were going to make them put out or swim back. So and a few guys I meet during the week put the fair into god into the punks infront of the girls hahaha. it was fun down there for sure back then four of us trying to sleep in one bed while two split the couch.boy I miss the candy store and the red & white stripe bathing suit.
I am with you on that, I miss those old days. I was attending University of Maryland from 1983 to 1986 (I transferred after that). Springbreak was Ft. Lauderdale.

A sorority girl I used to date dropped out of college, and was working down there during those years at the Candy Store (and dancing). Elbow room, happy hours at Biltmore, Jersey barriers, it was some memorable times other than the black-out drunk times. You took me back there with your post, thank you.

I always liked the Elbo Room. They have web cams, so you can call up your friends at work, and they get to watch you drink beer and have fun. http://www.elboroom.com

If on the water, Houston's in Pompano, next to the Atlantic Blvd. Intracoastal bridge. Still my old standby for good food/drinks...

cool glad to hear that, I think I had the 1st baseball helmut with the drink holders on each side it with out any shut offs, and when I came back to mass they did not sell them here until 88 or so but they then had a shut off. and in 85 there was no barriers that year they started in 86 I think

Anything downtown is good for the young crowd. The beach front is awsome, bars are fun...Blondes and The Elbow Room are my favorites. Bimany Boat House, Le Tub, and the Rustic Inn are the only places to eat.
