Linger  Lodge  Lunch   Cruise

Linger Lodge Lunch Cruise


Thirteen of us with 8 cars showed up for the Saturday 8-13 lunch cruise to Linger Lodge in Bradenton. 

We left Bob Evans on Fletcher near I-75 at 10 a.m. and cruised down Highway 301 and who knows what back roads for about two hours.  Eight Vettes lined up on the highway was really a beautiful sight.  Jim and Suzi S led the way and were masters at leading the pack.  A really well paced cruise.


We must have gone by way of north Miami (not really), but had a really good cruise.  After all, riding along in a string of Corvettes is what these cruises are all about. That and the good time with friends. We got to Linger Lodge about noon and were plenty ready for lunch - AND A PIT STOP.


No matter how you looked at it, you'd have to say this was a unique experience.  Linger Lodge is really a different type of place.  Lots of stuffed critters and overflowing with red neck atmosphere.  A great menu and plenty of unusual things to choose from.  Frog legs, craw dads, fried green tomatoes - lotsa good stuff.  Ask Frank G about the frog legs.  Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and when we left, we left full.  We had a great time.
