This spring membership had a packed social schedule filled with classic member favorites, as well as a number of new events. The quarter kicked off with an Oldies Night themed Happy Hour. With nifty drink specials, DJ Butch playing everyone’s favorite, funky tunes from back in the day, groovy dance moves and no squares in sight – it comes as no surprise that the night was far out! In addition to all food, booze and boogieing, Barefoot Members raised $225 for Autism Speaks through their participation in the 50/50 Raffle.
The first weekend of May proved to be a busy one, with the Kentucky Derby Viewing Party on Saturday and the Bottomless Mimosa Brunch Sunday morning. For those who came to get down and derby, the afternoon was filled with food and fun. Southern snacks including pimento cheese sandwiches, bourbon chicken sliders, BBQ shrimp and spinach & artichoke dip were served prior to the race. Ladies and gents in attendance then enjoyed a private viewing of the greatest two minutes in sports while sipping mint juleps. Barefoot Resort would like to congratulate Jim & Norma Earley for winning the people’s choice best dressed contest!
The following morning, those wishing to celebrate Mother’s Day a little early this year returned to the Resort Clubhouse for a Bottomless Mimosa Brunch. Guests were faced with the decision of drinking classic OJ mimosas or trying something new, such as the cranberry, mango, peach, or strawberry banana Bellini options offered. Luckily for the brunchers, the bubbly was bottomless, making it possible to try them all!
As the month of May came to a close, members enjoyed the return of two greatly favored events. On May 24th, many resort members spent their Wednesday evening wining and dining at the highly anticipated Prime Rib Dinner. Dinner guests gave their taste buds a four course treat starting with minestrone soup and house salad drizzled with Barefoot’s own raspberry vinaigrette. The prime rib was slow roasted to perfection, leading those to almost forget the baked potato and asparagus served as its side. The rainy evening came to a cozy end with hot coffee and warm bread pudding. Lastly, Barefoot Members kicked off the long, holiday weekend the right way with live music and drinks at Cabana Night. Barefoot Members spent the warm afternoon under the shade of the cabana’s umbrellas while enjoying the cool sounds of Lou Slover and even cooler drinks.
