2012 was the year of Sandbar weddings. Not one, not two, but THREE of our former bartenders got married last year.
First up, our man on the street Pat and Andrea.
Here's what Pandrea, as they are affectionately known to their friends, had to say about their romance:
Being locals and having several mutual friends, we knew of each other for a while before actually formally meeting each other at the Sandbar (editor's note: another match made in Sandbar heaven!).
Andrea had been going to the Sandbar for years and we all know timing is everything...so, when the time was right I finally got smart and asked her out. On our first date in August 2011 at the Casbah, we found out that we both loved Key West, which just made us like each other that much more!
And we planned a trip to go there for her birthday, which we did last February. I popped the question in May on our favorite bench on Mass St, after a dinner out downtown, and we got married on Sept. 15 at Wells Overlook.
The wedding party was made up of Sandbar regulars like Dave and bartender/art director Justin. We honeymooned in San Juan & Culebra, Puerto Rico, which coincidentally also has its own Sandbar. (Click here to see a picture of it. Pandrea also sent us back a picture from their trip.)
Congratulations, Pandrea! The Sandbar crew wishes you a lifetime of love and happiness and trips to Key West.
