20: As Spinnaker celebrates 40 years in business, we have enjoyed hearing all of the stories from past guests & employees. For so many of us Spinnaker has been more than just a bar or restaurant. These walls encompass the people & stories that legends are made of. For some the walls of Spinnaker have been life changing. Meet Liz & Jim Durham Liz began working at Spinnaker in 1982 at 18, while attending Gulf Coast Community College. Not long after Spinnaker opened for the season in 1982 a new bartender caught her eye. Naturally they spent their first date at Spinnaker! They have now been married for 27 years & raised 3 children. Over the last 20 years, every summer they take a trip back to Panama City Beach & stop by to visit Spinnaker. The picture to the left is of their kids while on a family trip to PCB. Their children are now in college and have returned to Spinnaker to create their own spring break memories!
