With the weather keeping us on our toes and looking at one of the busiest years I have seen in my tenure here, I offer some words of advice: Dress in layers, brake at the pedestrian crosswalks (I have seen and done some things! YIKES), be kind and don’t forget your sunscreen! Last but not least, leave nothing but your footprints!

ANNUAL TOUR OF HOMES

MAY 5, 2018

HAPPY MAY Y'ALL!

CHECK IT OUT!

It is that time of year again and I am flat out delighted to announce the worst kept secret in all the land! Each year, founder and master planner of the Beach Bum Parade and surrounding events, Jack Boylston, swears everyone involved to secrecy until the Coronation event. Well, we are on Tybee and there are no secrets here! However, for those of you that actually mind your own business and keep your nose out of others’, here is the official Officials of our 32nd Annual Beach Bum Parade: Our Grand Marshall is Johnny Herald aka The Bug Man! Our Queen is Esther Guy aka Essie!! Our Big Kahuna is Alan Burn aka A-J’s Dockside!!!! What a fantastic team of people to lead us all in our quest to get absolutely drenched and have a rip roaring good time! I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with these three long time Tybee people and finding out what earning this majestic (dubious?) honor means to them.

   

The Big Kahuna:  Alan Burn has been on Tybee since 1972! Born in Savannah at Hunter as military brat, the family moved everywhere, but eventually returned here to stay. Alan met the love of his life, Jackie, on Tybee and early in his day he worked for Gulf Stream. Finding an opportunity on the Back River to start their own bar/restaurant, Alan and Jackie opened A-J’s Dockside in January, 2003. The rest is history.

   

A-J’s always had a float in the Beach Bum during the early years, but as the restaurant’s fame and word of their fabulous food spread throughout the land, it became more and more difficult to run the float. One year, all of the employees were on the float. When the parade was over, they all (keep in mind were soaking wet) went to go open the restaurant. There was a line around the block of anxious patrons waiting to get in and nothing was ready!!!
