Red Hat Ladies

Red Hat Ladies: Judy, Betty and I.

My girlfriend, Betty, belongs to a group of Red Hat Ladies who meet once a month for lunch. So Betty invited me to join them today for their "Red Hot Renegades June Luncheon." How could I resist that kind of invite?

NICK'S Boathouse, Pensacola, Florida.

The luncheon was at NICK'S Boathouse in Pensacola. The restaurant is right on Pensacola Bay with a huge trellis covered patio facing the bay. A beautiful view with a tropical Gulf breeze, yummy food and an awesome group of Red Hat Ladies. What fun!

Here's the link to NICK'S Boathouse - Pensacola, FL

Betty and I split a "Spinach and Artichoke Flatbread" which was quite tasty and just the right amount for a light lunch. In addition to spinach and artichoke, it was topped with marinara sauce, tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese. Yum!

The Red Hat Ladies ordered an assortment of different seafoods for lunch. As I recall, every plate was cleaned and everyone was pleased with their choices for lunch.

A to-die-for yummy chocolate dessert.

Then came dessert for those who still had room for something else. One of the ladies ordered Key Lime Pie and I noticed she didn't share. (Nope, I wouldn't share Key Lime Pie either, which is one of my favs.)

Two ordered some death-by-chocolate kind of dessert of huge fudge brownies topped with ice cream, chocolate syrup, whip cream and a cherry. Well, extra spoons were delivered to the table and we all had to try that chocolate delight. Check out the photo to see this to-die-for chocolate dessert.

The service at NICK'S Boathouse was great. Our waiter was wonderful and readily agreed to snap several photos of our group. As I already mentioned, the view was gorgeous and the Red Hat Ladies were a delight. I can't wait until the next Red Hot Renegades Luncheon.

I couldn't resist snapping a few photos of NICK'S Boathouse so I could share them with you. If you happen to be in Pensacola, I'd recommend that you stop there for a yummy lunch or dinner or even just for a drink.

The fish tank at NICK'S Boathouse.

The inside seating is really nice, but sitting outside and gazing at the beautiful bay is even better. It was such a tranquil setting, I could have stayed there for hours.

Oh, don't forget to check out the 450 gallon fish tank in the restaurant. I've included a photo of that too.

Me as a Red Hat Lady.

For the record, Betty let me borrow a Red Hat for the occasion. Next time I'll be dressing in purple and sporting my own Red Hat. Hmm! I really liked that borrowed hat, so I just may have to borrow it again.

Betty also loaned me one of her books:  THE RED HAT CLUB by Haywood Smith

A special thanks to the Red Hot Renegades. It was great getting to meet all of you and I'm looking forward to the next luncheon. Until then, I hope you'll join Betty and I at our regular hang-out at Krispy Kreme in Pensacola for some yummy donuts and coffee.
