A day of celebratory events marked many around the area, but nothing as big as this one in Gulf Shores AL where 500 invite-only guest dined on a 175 foot long white-cloth dining table that stretched parallel to the waters of the gulf of Mexico.
Supper in the Sand was "a day to celebrate the resiliency of the Gulf of Mexico, the resiliency of the people of the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy some great, great seafood" so said Herb Malone, tourism president for Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
Celebrity chef Guy Fieri was on hand along with state and local dignitaries, chefs, common folks too and folks from the local seafood industry. Straight from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, they dined on gumbo, oysters, royal red shrimp and crab claws.
