Let’s Throw Some Fish

26 Apr

It’s Mullet Toss Weekend in South Alabama. On the Florida/Alabama state line, there’s a little place called The FloraBama Lounge & Package. It’s a pretty famous roadhouse with even a few songs written about it. And, each year on the last full weekend in April, the FloraBama sponsors the Interstate Mullet Toss.

The Mullet Toss is exactly as billed. People enter and compete in various age divisions (similar to 10k races) to see who can literally throw a mullet the farthest. Competition is serious and intense. To reward the victors, and the losers for that matter, is music and ice cold libations a plenty.

Mullet Toss Champion shows excellent form

The weather is absolutely gorgeous today, so it should be a very successful “toss”. Just the ambiance of the FloraBama is worth the trip.

…all roads lead to Wet Willie, baby.

    Yikes! Looks like a beach version of Mardi-Gras.
    Leave it to those Southerners to make throwing fish an excuse for a party ๐Ÿ˜‰
