Oar House site now home to new surf shop
he Oar House has a new tenant, and it’s not the North Florida Land Trust. Ponte Vedra resident Brian Weissmann has rented the property to house his new surf shop, Trident Surf. For the last three years, the North Florida Land Trust has sought to raise money to purchase the site, at 4415 Mickler Road in Ponte Vedra Beach, and an adjacent parcel to build a conservation resource center but has yet garnered the necessary funds.
Ponte Vedra Beach sports bar Bogey Grille has temporarily closed to clean up and make repairs in the wake of a water pipe burst in the restaurant’s ceiling. “We had 1-2 inches of water throughout,” owner Derek Prince said Tuesday as crews worked to dry the walls and floors. We have to replace the ceiling, flooring and some of the walls,” he said. He’s hopeful to reopen the restaurant in two to three weeks. The closing comes at an unfortunate time for the family sports bar. October is “the best month of the year” for business, he said.
The incident happened about 10 p.m. Sunday as the restaurant was getting ready to close, Prince said. Bogey’s is located at 150 Valley Circle.
