Jacksonville Beach Pier

Jacksonville Beach has been undergoing a number of transformations, with more in store.

From the new Margaritaville hotel to upgrades to the upcoming Jax Beach Town Center, Jacksonville Beach is on the rise. Jacksonville Beach Mayor Christine Hoffman talked to us about what’s happening.  

Food Delivery Apps Gone Wrong

Food delivery apps are a popular tool during this pandemic, as people stay away from indoor dining at restaurants and do more takeout. However, some apps are predatory, according to numerous restaurateurs here and around the country. 

We spoke with local attorney Rick Block, who recently had his dog stolen by someone he thought was a Grubhub driver. Local restaurant owner Daniel Ballesteros of Sub Cultured in Atlantic Beach also joined us to discuss the subject.

Amelia Island Brewing Company

Amelia Island Brewing Company is hosting the grand opening of its newest spot today. It’s  called The Alley by AIBC - a new taproom venue.  We had General Manager Megan Georgeo and Brewmaster Jay Mack on to talk to us about it.
