On the 1st June guests will get the chance to party all day – there will be a DJ on the Clock Tower, a free cupcake (vanilla with blue icing) with the purchase of an adult entrée at Typhoon Tilly’s or Leaning Palms, and the Baybreeze, a specialty beverage with cranberry juice, pineapple juice and vodka just for grown-ups ($3.50). Let’s Go Slurpin’ bar also will feature its own anniversary cocktail, the Blue Hawaiian.
As if that isn’t enough, guests will also be able to try the new chicken and waffle sandwich, made with a crispy fried chicken breast topped with peppery arugula, mild Asiago cheese and honey aioli.
For those with a sweeter tooth why not try the chocolate chip waffle with fresh fruit sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Both waffles will be available at Lowtide Lou’s and are only on the menu ‘til Aug. 1.
For those looking for a lighter option, there are also two new salads on the menu. The Shrimp Wrecked Salad at the Snack Shacklocation features mixed greens, feta cheese, and dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette and topped with strawberries and shrimp. Tropical Chicken Salad at Leaning Palms has mixed greens, Parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, cucumbers, mandarin oranges and grilled chicken with raspberry vinaigrette.
