Holy City Sinner Roadshow :: West Palm Beach

Believe it or not there is a world outside the walls of the Holy City and as much as I love our home, I enjoy exploring the rest of the country. I decided to share some quick reviews about the different cities I visit in case ya’ll end up venturing outside the Lowcountry too.

About a week ago the girlfriend and I took an extended weekend trip to West Palm Beach, Florida. Although not the most exotic of locales, it was an enjoyable trip. We tried out a couple restaurants, spent one day at a beach, and caught a couple Dave Matthews Band concerts. Here are some quick reviews of places we visited:

Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar - Standard Mexican fare, but it was definitely tasty. Between the two of us we had grilled mahi-mahi tacos, pulled chicken tacos, and chips with salsa. The chips had some strange seasoning, but otherwise everything was good. If you're in the area, stop in! The only regret was that we didn't order their "famous" guacamole that they make table-side, but at $12 a pop, it wasn't that big of a regret.

Cruzan amphitheatre - I enjoy seeing concerts here. It's a standard amphitheatre (pavilion and lawn seating) that's surrounded by tall palm trees. They have a couple food trucks that come in, which beats the usual concert fare. Plus, they sell frozen drinks (daiquiris, pina coladas, margaritas), which you don't normally see at most venues.

Duffy's Sports Grill - Pretty good food with a wide variety. Plenty of beer and TVs make it a great place to catch a game. Service was a little slow though.

Palm Beach Municipal Beach - Beautiful, small beach. It reminds me of some California-style beaches. It's literally steps from the road, with mansions and expansive properties behind it. The water was some of the clearest I've seen.

Roxy's Pub - I've only been here for concerts, so I have no idea if the food is any good. It's a fun place to see a show - small and on a cool strip with other bars, restaurants and shops.

For those of you into setlists, here's what DMB played each night
