The Blue Marlin Bar and Grill: A Grill and a Night Spot
The Blue Marlin is a nightspot where you can dance and get a drink. We went here one time with a group of other campers who frequented this establishment often. The night we went there was a live band, and we watched quite a few locals dancing the Carolina shag. This dance is a rock and roll eight-step that came into style in the 1950’s. It is often described as the jitterbug meets rhythm and blues. Having begun on the beaches where kicking sand in your partners face was a distinct possibility, very little motion is made with the upper body, and the footwork is smooth and close to the floor. One southerner told me that the shag was designed to be danced with a beer in one hand and the lady in the other. This business is also a grill, but we did not eat there, so I do not know what the quality of the food is like.
Dress Code: Casual, and ladies dancing the shag never wear high heels.
