Turtleheads

While my BFF was in town my parents wanted to take us all out to eat.  My parents are the typical midwestern couple, however occasionally they like things and it completely blows my mind!  Turtleheads is one of these strange things, it just does not compute!  
Turtleheads is a bar that attracts bikers, women who want to be biker babes, and apparently my parents.  They like to go have dinner after church some Saturday evenings... yes, I said dinner at a bar after church.  LOL My parents really do crack me up.  So anyway, back to my real point.  My parents took Farmboy, BFF, and me to dinner.  It was awesome!
We started with some refreshing drinks, with flamingoes!  Turtleheads is known for their seafood, so we all got sea creatures.  Mom had boiled shrimp, FB had boiled crawfish (did you know they serve those things whole?? I don't like the idea of eating something that still has a face!) Dad and bestie both had the sampler platter (which included oysters), and I had fried shrimp with sweet potato fries!  It was sooo good.  Bestie and Farmboy tried oysters for the first time, and neither plan on repeating that experience.  If y'all head to her blog, and beg real nice, hopefully she'll post both reactions.  They're pretty priceless.  After dinner on the patio a band began to play some fairly good music.  Farmboy is pretty talented at "name that tune."  All and all a good time with the parentals and friends.  Tonight FB and I are going go-carting with my whole family.  I plan on leaving them all in the dust!
