Took an evening boat ride up the waterway to LuLu’s for dinner with the Boy and DIL last night.  LuLu’s is a small chain of beach themed restaurants owned by Jimmy Buffets Sister, the place here is open air and right on the waterway with boat docks for patrons. Weather, food and service were very good and we had a great time.  Boy and I split a Seafood Platter for 2:  Blackened Red Snapper, Fried Shrimp, Crab Claws, Oysters and some of the best Fried Onion Rings anywhere.  It was a huge platter of food, the boy and I are good eaters and we were able to consume about 2/3 of it.  All that for $52 at a waterside restaurant around here is really amazing, it could easily serve 3-4 people.  Funny thing is the place gets mediocre reviews but I have been there twice and have been very satisfied both times.

It is truly the beginning of the first of two HELL WEEKs for area residents here!  The 2nd one in the fall is even worse than this one, this is predominantly a Harley event but the fall rally is “Crotch Rocket Week”. 

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - The sound of revving motors has returned to the Grand Strand with the start of Spring Rally 2019 in Murrells Inlet Friday.

The event runs through May 19 and features, food, vendors, concerts and much more.
Organizers said they anticipate large crowds but hope to keep everyone safe, sound and subdued throughout the week-long festivities.

“You won’t be able to move around,” began Leslye Beaver, one of the many organizers of the annual event.

Today is Saturday, May 11, the 131st day of 2019. There are 234 days left in the year.


Today's Highlight in History:
On May 11, 1996, an Atlanta-bound ValuJet DC-9 caught fire shortly after takeoff from Miami and crashed into the Florida Everglades, killing all 110 people on board.

On this date:
In 1502, Christopher Columbus left Cadiz, Spain, on his fourth and final trip to the Western Hemisphere.
In 1647, Peter Stuyvesant (STY'-veh-sunt) arrived in New Amsterdam to become governor of New Netherland.
In 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state of the Union.
In 1935, the Rural Electrification Administration was created as one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs.
In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces landed on the Aleutian island of Attu, which was held by the Japanese; the Americans took the island 19 days later.
In 1953, a tornado devastated Waco, Texas, claiming 114 lives.
In 1960, Israeli agents captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In 1973, the espionage trial of Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo in the "Pentagon Papers" case came to an end as Judge William M. Byrne dismissed all charges, citing government misconduct.
In 1987, doctors in Baltimore transplanted the heart and lungs of an auto accident victim to a patient who gave up his own heart to another recipient. (Clinton House, the nation's first living heart donor, died 14 months later.)
In 1998, India set off three underground atomic blasts, its first nuclear tests in 24 years. A French mint produced the first coins of Europe's single currency, the euro.
In 2006, Lawmakers demanded answers after a USA Today report that the National Security Agency was secretly collecting records of millions of ordinary Americans' phone calls; President George W. Bush sought to assure Americans their civil liberties were being "fiercely protected."
In 2010, Conservative leader David Cameron, at age 43, became Britain's youngest prime minister in almost 200 years after Gordon Brown stepped down and ended 13 years of Labour government.

Ten years ago: President Barack Obama fired the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, replacing Gen. David McKiernan with Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Five U.S. troops were shot and killed at a mental health clinic on a Baghdad base; the shooter, Sgt. John Russell, was later sentenced to life in prison without parole. American journalist Roxana Saberi, imprisoned on espionage charges in Iran for four months, was freed. President Barack Obama met at the White House with representatives of the health care industry who promised to cut $2 trillion in costs over 10 years. Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Israel on a visit to the Holy Land. The space shuttle Atlantis blasted off on a mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.


Five years ago: Pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine said voters overwhelmingly favored sovereignty in balloting that the Ukraine central government and the West denounced as an illegal sham. Musa Dayib, a 15-month-old toddler, miraculously survived an 11-story fall from a Minneapolis high-rise apartment balcony. Jeb Stuart Magruder, 79, a Watergate conspirator-turned minister, died in Danbury, Connecticut.


One year ago: President Donald Trump unveiled his long-promised plan to bring down drug prices; the plan mostly spared the pharmaceutical industry and didn't include his campaign pledge to use the Medicare program's buying power to directly negotiate lower prices for seniors. R&B singer R. Kelly went ahead with a concert in Greensboro, North Carolina, despite calls for a boycott stemming from longstanding allegations of sexual misconduct.
