The Palace Saloon On A Friday Night Before The Florida Georgia Game

The Florida Georgia game is unique in that it is played every year at a neutral site, Jacksonville, Florida.

 Equal number of tickets are allotted to each school.  The stadium is evenly divided.  One side orange and blue,

the other side red and black.

Many Georgia fans stay on Amelia Island, which is very close to the Florida/Georgia border.

The watering hole on Amelia Island is the Palace Saloon, the oldest bar in Florida.

It has the old Saloon doors, leading into a beautiful bar with fabulous murals on the walls.
