#TARDY… Sorry I’m late. Hope you didn’t start without me. Yes, this edition was supposed to be slid into your inbox on Monday. But, hey, things got a little sideways the past week (or so). Anyway, since we’re late, we probably shouldn’t just sit around and chit chat. Let’s get to it… FOOD FIGHT, In the mood for a friendly food fight? SAT., OCT 22nd, the BRADENTON FARMER’S MARKET hosts a food battle between local chefs. 10:15AM-11:30AM.

That’s the signal for the MORTON'S GOURMET MARKET Annual Firehouse Chili Cook-Off. SUN., OCT 16th, 2PM to 5PM. $10 to sample chili. Lots of local Sarasota firehouses competing to be the top chili cookin’ company. This annual event is loads of fun!... CRAB IT, Get your appetite ready. OCT 15th starts stone crab season.
