While cruising in an old police car inspired by The Blues Brothers, Adam Boylan came up with the idea to open the Blues Cafe, 2699 Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach. "I was thinking of a way to put it to good use," he said.
While Boylan toils inside his two-month-old restaurant, the old cruiser can be seen parked under the Blues Cafe sign. In the coming weeks, Boylan hopes the vehicle will be used to help launch a new dinner delivery service. "The restaurant that was here before us specialized in breakfasts, and we're trying to keep the regular customers happy by continuing with breakfasts, but I am now working on deliveries -- salads, sandwiches and hamburgers. It would be great if the Blues mobile could be used for deliveries. I need to say that the car has alot of miles on it, so I'll see how it goes," said Boylan, who earned his restaurant experience at Crisper's in Lakeland. Blues Cafe is at the site of the former Jeannie's Beachside Deli.
The Blues Cafe is open 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
