I COMPLETELY and WHOLE- HEARTEDLY agree with the "Best Pool Bar" award going to the PIB resort... I currently reside in St Petersburg Beach, Florida as I have the last 2 years but have been a long established PIG-goer for about 5-6 years straight and strong. Known as the jagerboys thruought the island that pool bar is the main "itch" that I have every summer to get back up for a visit...

I see plenty of sun, sand and beautiful girls down here in Florida on a daily basis but that place compares to anything I have seen down here -- easliy! Well worth the stop as you probobly wont leave!

Kenny, Before Mist opened last weekend it would be hard to argue with you on this subject as PIB resort was much nicer than the old Mr. Ed's tiki. However, you will fall in love with the new Mist that took its place :D Hard to beat 2 waterfalls, swim up 12 seat bar, 5 individual cabana's to rent with personal waitress and VIP service, right in the middle of downtown, DJ rocking the pool, not to mention a ton more lawn chairs than the old pool 8)

Well mills then santa is gonna come early for me in 2 weeks when I am up there -- 2 great pools is better then 1. I cant wait to check it out.

And from my understanding that is owned by Ed as well who is a great dude. Mark has the resort and Ed has that pool bar so 2 great pools run by 2 guys who are all about island fun.. then at least people that visit here will know that those are the only 2 to go to. And I still remember that splash bar (which I believe is run by the same people that own the dungeon beer barrel - awful) being shut down cause it was so nasty a few years past ... probobly still the same!

Good to hear there are now 2 great places to go!

There is a decent chance I will also be there that weekend for at least 1 night. Probably hit the Bay during the day then stay with my buddy at his house on Middle Bass. We will have to meet up for a drink or 10!!!!
