#SUMMER… It’s hot. It’s summer. And, when it’s not hot it’s raining. Welcome to the Suncoast. When it comes to beating the heat we’ve got options. Crank up the AC. Walk the mall. How about a movie? You can do dinner and a movie (think Cinebistro). Or, you can just skip the movie part and grab dinner at your favorite Sarasota restaurant. They should be a touch less crowded this time of year. This is the time that we get to enjoy OUR restaurants. Lots of our local favs have dining deals running through the rest of the summer. It’s a great time to escape the swelter and enjoy some delicious food at the same time… SUMMER LUNCH, I think I heard someone say dining deals. Here’s one that sounds pretty great. Now thru September 30th, PHILLIPPI CREEK OYSTER BAR has a late summer lunch special running. For $9.95 you can grab one of 5 special lunch entrees. I can highly recommend the Snapper Reuben!... HAPPY, HAPPY, Keeping with the same theme, if you like happy hour (and who doesn’t), BRASA & PISCO is a Tuesday destination. $5 apps from 5-6:30PM until September 27th. Oh, the pork wontons make a fine choice… BOGO @ THE BEACH HOUSE, You read that correctly. It’s buy one lunch entrée, get one free through August at THE BEACH HOUSE. Oh, you will need a coupon for this one. Get one here... LOBSTER-O-RAMA, The POLO GRILL & BAR rolls out Lobster Nights. Every Saturday in August and September. $25.50 gets you 2 1LB Maine lobsters + all the fixings. 5:30PM-9PM. Yes, I did say 2 lobsters. make a res here... FOOD TRUCK HAPPENING, If that’s your thing, JBUD’S BREWING COMPANY has got you covered. Saturday, August 20th 5PM-10PM. They’ll be hosting a food truck rally featuring over a half dozen local food trucks.

...The Exit

INS & OUTS, We keep fine tuning the dS database. It stands at 347 Sarasota restaurants after the addition of PALERMO PIZZA and the deletion of FUSION RESTAURANT. Fusion occupied the old CAFÉ AMERICANO space on Main Street for those of you wondering. That’s a wrap for this issue!
