New (old) Mousetrap Impressions buy BTB

The following is my impression after a VERY short  visit.
It is really not fair to judge on just one experience,
however this is my review! 
Winking smile

                Thursday,  August 25, 2011

Opening night…   light crowd, no problem parking.

Arrived at the   NEW…  old Mouse Trap    around  7:30 pm.The old Durango’s Restaurant has been re-arranged.  Still has all

dark wood interior and they have an updated kitchen complete with

a    4′ x 4′ ?  open fire grill.    You can watch them cook your steak.

Never visited the old Durango’s… maybe the grill was already there?
There was an old  Mouse Trap Menu   in a frame as you walk in the door!The bar is still on the left as you enter.    No Pool room or bar that used

to be off to the right!  Didn’t see anyone with a “Bucket Drink”  in their hand.

          Sadly,  It  ain’t  what it used to be!  Sad smile  Not too surprised!

Didn’t eat anything but after looking at the menu, it just looked like another  COCOA BEACH TOURIST TRAP!    Over priced and probably over rated!

It seems to be a trend a Cocoa Beach!   Steaming mad  As far as I know very few ofthe LOCALS go out there!         Just my impression!      There are

still a couple of good places.   i.e.  Florida Seafood.. the old Gatsby’s.

Next time your at the beach, check out the TRAP and tell me what you think!
Did I mention that there was…    ( really didn’t stay long enough to be sure!  )
A serious shortage of the  Wild n Crazy  Women  that used to be there!  Crying face
Hummmm  where did they all go?   JD’s?   Norman’s?   The Peanut Bar?  lol

Might be that they are not interested in the ole Geezers  out there!   ho ho ho
      Oh Dear!  Oh Dear!   What’s an ole Indian supposed to do?  Where
  
Ahhhh the good ole days!  lol   http://tracking.technodesignip.com/?action=count&projectid=642&contentid=6543&referrer=-&urlaction=r...
