A new daiquiri shop in Gulfport is looking like the Coast’s newest hit.
The Press Box Daiquiri Lounge celebrated its grand opening today in downtown Gulfport. Located on Fishbone Alley, the Press Box celebrates the great game of baseball.
Former MGCCC and San Francisco Giants Outfielder Fred Lewis designed and opened the lounge all by himself, hoping to display his love for the game. “Baseball has been one of my hearts and it’s one of those things that you play it and you can’t get rid of it. Once you walk in here, you’ll see what I poured my heart into and what I’ve done on and off the field and when you walk in here, you’ll see it.”
Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes said, “When it warms up, I told him this patio is going to be full all of the time, but it’s got a great vibe. It’s right off Fishbone Alley so everything that we’ve been working towards to bring folks back and hopefully make them successful, I think this is a great indication of what can be done.”
