Little Fish Huge Pond

Not a restaurant, Little Fish Huge Pond is a pub/bar/tavern. I think. Well, I'm not exactly sure how to describe it. They have a bar. They server beer and wine. The have art up on the walls and chotchkies everywhere. They also have some sofas and chairs. Even a stage where they have live entertainment. I guess the best way to describe it is that it's "a crazy little urban pub!" as their web site proclaims. We had a good time here.

We went to Little Fish Huge Pond last night because there was a Pirates Regatta on Lake Monroe in Sanford, preceded by a gathering of pirates at Little Fish Huge Pond. We had a delightful time. First of all, I was able to score a delicious IPA--I drank the last three bottle they had! The place was fairly busy with well over 20 people there, many of them in pirate attire. I heard a lot of "aaarrgh"s and "avast"s and saw a few hooks, eye patches, and other seemingly appropriate pirate wear.

The main instigator and rabble-rouser in the crowd was Mo, the owner of the place

The main instigator and rabble-rouser in the crowd was Mo, the owner of the place. She is an absolute hoot and a very warm and friendly person--perfect for a pub owner. At the appropriate time, Mo led the group of pirates (now numbering well over 30) out the door and into the street where they proceeded down first street and then up to Lake Monroe. There the pirate ships (some flying the Jolly Roger and  many with approprately dressed pirates) tied up and joined the revelry.

Later in the evening we went back past Little Fish Huge Pond. They had a band and a nice crowd of folks in there. Also on the street we encountered many more pirates, some engaged in a bar crawl. Looked like they were having fun. I know I'll be going back to this place, it was a lot of fun.
