Monday Specials at the Maritime Market - 2/12

Good Morning Fellow Islanders!

It's 60 degrees on the front porch this morning, and the wind-swept dunes
are damp with the remnants of an early morning shower. The rising crescent
moon and the pre-dawn stars are all hidden behind a thick layer of clouds -
keeping the island shrouded in darkness, with a southerly breeze kicking up
a loud South Beach surf. A gray dawn will soon break, and we'll see
temperatures creep up a few degrees, with scattered showers and possibly a
thunderstorm later this afternoon, with periodic breaks allowing a quick
walk on the beach with the pups, or a run to the Post Office or the Market
:). The rains will taper off overnight, with the winds shifting to the
north, followed by falling temperatures bottoming out around 40 by dawn
tomorrow. We'll warm to the low 50's tomorrow, with a brisk north wind,
overcast skies, and a slight chance of a pop-up shower. On Wednesday, we'll
see partly sunny skies return, with temperatures reaching the upper 50's,
and we'll see the 60's again on Thursday & Friday. Low tide will occur
around 10:15 this morning, and high tide will peak at about 4:30 this

For breakfast this morning, Chef Radar is in the kitchen and preparing his
famous "crunch wrap" - scrambled eggs, sausage, cheese & salsa, all folded
into a tortilla and grilled to a crunch - and only $7.95. For lunch, enjoy
a blue-plate special with our incredible meatloaf, along with a side of
mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables for just $8.95. Order any of our
regular menu items on-line at [1] and your order will
be ready when you arrive.

We have a few seats remaining for our upcoming Valentine's Sweetheart
dinner, taking place in the Cafe this coming Saturday, so go to
[2] to reserve your seats. Registration deadline is
Wednesday at Noon, or until we sell out :). We'll have four fabulous
courses matched with some terrific wine pairings, with a rose for the
ladies and a few other surprises. This intimate dining experience is only
$85/person, plus tax/gratuity, and there's a non-refundable deposit of $25
to hold your seat. Our wine dinners are legendary, so don't delay.

14), beginning at 1pm.
