Eat This!

Happy Hour Is Here!

Sarasota has an up and coming happy hour scene. And, the brand new Veronica Fish & Oyster House located in Southside Village is a strong contender. Great upscale, big city bar setting.



#PRESEASON… What is the world is going on in town? Walk through Siesta Village, packed. Southside Village, super busy, University Park, well, you all know the mob scene that’s going on out there. It’s like the big switch just got flipped. Cooler temps and bigger crowds. WAY BIGGER! I couldn’t be happier for all of our Sarasota restaurant friends and acquaintances. Those cash registers are ringing at pretty good clip. It’s not that long until that late November eat-a-thon formally known as Thanksgiving. That’s when we normally get our first real pop. Not the end of October?? This is not a complaint, just an observation. I love it when the city is busy and things are hopping. It looks like it’s time to use your creative skills when trying to get a table. We’ve got lots and lots of local restaurants that take online reservations. You can find them all on our website. If you’ve never done that, now’s a good time to figure it out. If you regularly use that method, then you know what I’m talking about. You wouldn’t have it any other way. Easy, peasy… WINE ON, Are you up for a five course wine dinner? Come on, this will be delicious. WED, OCT 26th, HARRY’S CONTINENTAL KITCHENS presents a Trimbach Wine Dinner. Just a few seats remain. $75PP++, MORE INFO, 941-383-0777… BEER ON, It's easy to love a half pint as much as a full. BREW THRU SRQ has the half pint thing covered. Join their Sarasota Half Pint Tour, NOV 4th, $40PP, includes 4 craft beers AND a trolley ride! MORE INFO & TICKET PURCHASE HERE... SCARY STUFF, Some Halloween doings. MATTISON’S CITY GRILLE, has a party + costume contest. SAT, OCT 29th. Yes, there will be prizes. Contest begins at 10PM. Out on Siesta Key, the OLD SALTY DOG is having a combo Halloween party + 30th anniversary bash. They’re rolling back prices on food and drinks to 1986! Should be fun!... SIPPIN’, The SIP THE SUNSHINE FLORIDA CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL is on SAT, OCT 29th. 50 craft breweries, 110+ craft beers, AND, Blues Traveler. YES, that Blues Traveler. TICKETS HERE.
