Restaurant | "Cheap Chinese For Lunch."

Quote:
I love Chinese food but I haven't been able to find a Chinese restaurant that has good food, a good variety of food, and it is cheap. Well, it has taken five years of living in Pensacola and a couple of free lunches to find that place, and it is Chow Tyme in Pensacola, Florida. Located on Creighton Road across from the Wal-Mart and in the Ashley Furniture Store Plaza, Chow Tyme is a great place to go for one who wants a good meal during their lunch hour or anytime one wants to have good Chinese with their loved ones.The first time I went to Chow Tyme was in July when I was doing my Certified Medical Assistant externship with Dr. Mian with Baptist Medical Group. As a rule, all doctors...Read More

I had four-day Veterans Day weekend off from school, and I was looking for something interesting to do that didn't involve sitting on my couch at home stuffing myself with Cheetos or other decadent junk food. I am going to school full-time at Pensacola State College full-time now, and during my free time, I was browzing on my school e-mail when I saw a notice for the Bill Mauldin Exhibit at the University of West Florida's Art Gallery that would start that Veterans Day weekend. It said that there would be a reception on Friday, November 9, with some of the local WWII veterans that I would have loved to have gone to, but Mom and I had things to do on that Friday. So we decided to go to the exhibit on...Read More

My birthday was April 30 and what did I ask Mom for my special day? A trip to the beach and tickets to the hottest show in town for this moment, a Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball game. Getting the tickets on line was a bit of a challenge. Mom and I were hoping to go to the game on Mother's Day, a day game, but they were sold out. Other days were sold out, and the first day I was able to get tickets for us was May 23, a Wednesday night game. Hey! I was happy to be going to any baseball game and waiting almost a month to go was going to be worth the $10 per ticket admission. Mom and I got to the Blue Wahoo's home at Community Maritime Park about two hours before the scheduled 7 p.m....Read More

After a nice dinner at the Oar House, Mom, Erika, Todd, and I were on the way to Maritime Park in Downtown Pensacola for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos game. When we arrived we noticed that the cheap parking lot across from the park was filling up quickly due to the game being sold out, but Mom and I would have not minded walking a distance, but not in the dark like we did the last time. Erika and Todd were not about to walk in the dark into a parking lot that also doubles as people's backyards, so Todd felt it was worth the $10 to park in the main parking lot of Maritime Park. After waiting a few minutes for the gates to Maritime Park to open, we were allowed inside. It was Military App...Read More

My sister Erika and brother-in-law Todd celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary on July 27. Mom and I gave them tickets for them and us to go to a Pensacola Blue Wahoos game and enjoy some quality time together. Mom and I left our house in Milton to meet Erika and Todd at their house in Pensacola, and they greeted us with the offer to go out to dinner. What came next was something out of a Abbott and Costello film: Erika: Want to go to the Oar House?Todd: DId you say the Wh-- House?Dianne: Oh brother, get your brain out of the gutter, Todd!Mom: We can't afford dinner.Erika and Todd: It's on your ex (Erika and my father)....Read More
