Blackfly Cafe Tropical Dinner Adventure
June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $34.99
For Vaughn & Jean Cochran it all started with a love of fishing. Which led to the founding of Blackfly Lodge in Abaco, Bahamas. Which led to Blackfly The Restaurant in St. Augustine. Which then led to the Cochrans opening Blackfly Cafe & Tarpon Taproom in Jacksonville in 2016.
Having just celebrated their one year anniversary in Jax, we are delighted to come together with Blackfly Cafe to present a Caribbean-themed Dinner Adventure for all of our Jax foodies. All of the Blackfly establishments pride themselves on creating delicious, tropical inspired food from scratch. Known for their family recipe conch chowder, everything at Blackfly is made with authenticity and a love for the flavors that started it all.
This Tropical Dinner Adventure will be on Tuesday, June 13, at 7pm. Tickets are $35.99 and include six courses plus a craft beer.
