             Süd Feiertagsfest: (South Holiday Party)

  The Grand Hotel at Point Clear                                         December 27, 2020This 1847 jewel of Mobile Bay has been a favorite for many generations of southeastern society.  Thanks to connections we made in planning StarFest® 2018 we have been able to join their very popular and delicious holiday Sunday brunch events for the last 4-5 years.Alabama has mask requirements while Florida does not, but our majority Florida resident group complied well.There was the required table separation, but the brunch is a huge buffet.  Now, I have avoided these due to everyone handing the same serving utensils.  The Grand solved this with disposable gloves served to you by a machine that opened a glove for your right hand.  Rather like the 80’s-90’s Mercedes-Benz open cars and coupes that present you the seatbelt.  This and the extended shields for the food certainly minimized contamination.The weather was delightful.  We could see all the way across and up the bay to Mobile.  Adjacent Fairhope is the most elevated part of the Eastern U.S. shore between Maine and the Rio Grande.What a wonderful way to close out Alabama – N.W. Florida section 2020 activities.
