Sonic Beach opens today in Beach Place, bringing new life to the somewhat tired outdoor dining and shopping center on Fort Lauderdale's A1A.

The restaurant/entertainment complex will take up almost 6,000 sq. feet of space on the second floor of Beach Place and although that means no drive-through service will be available, there will be wait staff on roller skates (so just pretend that you're in a pink 1957 Cadillac convertible).

Customers will be able to play with a selection of iPads filled

with apps and games while they wait for their food. Alternately, they

can enjoy the ocean views from the massive deck overlooking the


Sonic Beach will feature the traditional Sonic menu of

burgers, dogs, slushies, limeades, and some new additions, like pulled

pork sandwiches. In addition, Sonic Beach will serve an extensive beer

and wine menu, including 28 different kinds of beers.

Sonic Beach

will officially open today, 11/11/11 at 5 p.m. with free beer for

everyone from 5 - 8 p.m. Sonic Beach will open daily from 10 a.m. - 3
