It was a birthday party for a five-year-old, but the guests were doing more than a little drinking. CJ’s on the Bay celebrated five years on Marco Island on Sunday afternoon, with a party around the outside bar in the courtyard at their Esplanade location on Smokehouse Bay. Curt Koon, the “C” of CJ’s, gleefully poured a five-gallon bucket of ice into the dunk tank above which Nick Catudal sat poised, forgetting perhaps that he was scheduled for his own turn in the “cold seat” later on.
