G&G Seafood Rodeo

In partnership with Visit Pensacola, Garden & Gun hosted an exclusive weekend featuring off-shore fishing, creative cocktails, and a collaborative four-course dinner curated by star chefs and inspired by the bounty of Pensacola Bay. The weekend kicked off with a waterfront cocktail reception presented alongside Grady-White Boats with Blade and Bow bourbon, followed by a true sea-to-table experience on a half-day fishing charter. For the finale, four renowned chefs created an exclusive, four-course dinner featuring fresh local seafood, live music, and sweeping views of the Pensacola coast from the famed Grand Marlin restaurant.
