Before visiting Willie T's we had a fine dinner of steak on the barbecue with many vegetable sides, thanks to chef and first mate, Iron Davy.
By the time we got to Willie T's, the place was rocking and there was very little room on the dock to tie up the dinghy, but we found a place. It's a run down bar that is clearly a playpen for the idle rich. It's pretty small, so was packed with people. They run a video slide show of activities that occur there, many of which are not suitable for family discussion.
Above the bar, there hangs a water ski with five holes bored into it that hold shot glasses. The tradition is to fill the shot glasses with liquor, insert them into the holes and five people down a shot all at once.
I met a man named John who owns a pizza place in Old Orchard Beach in Maine named Bill's Pizza Parlor and a bizarre family from Colorado who own a family restaurant. Mother, Father and 24 year old son were partying together. Didn't seem healthy to me.
The highlight of the evening was when they played Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond. The singalong was robust. I mentioned to John, a Red Sox fan, that it felt like Fenway Park during the 7th inning.
