Take a look at what’s happening at Fins’ at Sharky’s in Venice…

Last night was a Beef and Beer tasting, pairing a 5-course dinner with Beer from Calusa Brewing in Sarasota.

Two amazing chefs of Fins’ at Sharky’s explained their dishes and why they paired them with a specific beer. Representatives from Calusa Brewing gave a brief description of each beer as well.

This was our second visit to Fins’ at Sharky’s in Venice Beach for a great “pairing” of fantastic food and beverages. The first visit was a wine pairing.

Check out Fins’ at Sharky’s for a fun night out at the beach and explore exquisite food and drinks!

Amazing Dinner!

Donation to a Worthy Cause

IMG_9358I had the pleasure of being with    Sue & Pete Shields, Owners of S&S Tropical Group Rentals, who made a generous donation to the Anna Maria Privateers. Their donation will help fund scholarships and kid’s organizations.

The Privateers really get in the ‘mood’ dressing in Privateer attire! The “ship” can been seen around the Island for various events. Pub Crawls are a blast!  This is a non-profit organization and the crew members go out of their way to make every event fun! You never know when you will see the “Skullywag  Ship” driving down the highway, but when you do – Wave!

“Pinchers” Crab Shack

20180208_115619277211571.jpgEAT CRAB GET PINCHED at Pinchers Crab Shack in Lakewood Ranch. This is not the typical crab shack with picnic tables and crabs by the dozen sprawled across the table. Pinchers takes a different approach, by selling a single crab for $7.00 each,    6 for $37.00 or 12 for $70.00! Growing up in Maryland, I don’t think I ever saw an option on the menu to buy a ‘single’ crab. Instead, I opted for a few appetizers to get my crab ‘fix’. The Crab Rangoon was fantastic; Seared Ahi Tuna was wonderful; and the Crab Dip was divine. All three apps for less than a dozen crabs!  If you care to take some seafood home with you, they also have a seafood market.

It was a warm day so we sat outside and enjoyed the sunny weather.  20180208_115642875224453.jpgIt was a great afternoon and we will definitely be back.

 

 

 

 

Skullywag Pub Crawl 2018

fb_img_1517763583506172870650.jpgA Big THANK YOU to the Anna Maria Island Privateers for a fantastic journey through town stopping at 4 pubs for the pirates to invade!! The Privateers crew and 30 new and old friends got together on the Skullywag Saturday for a fantastic day! The funds collected went to a worthy cause supporting college students and the ‘pirates’ had a wonderful journey! A smaller version of the Gasparilla!

All dressed as pirates and wenches we boarded the Skullywag. Lots of laughs and fun for all.

Peace River Seafood/Fisherman’s Village

20180130_1241181389736293.jpgFive friends on an adventure for the day is what we were yesterday heading to Punta Gorda. Two of us are originally from Maryland, so we were ready for some Steamed Blue Crabs, Maryland style! And we definitely found them at Peace River Seafood on Rte 17 just outside the town of Punta Gorda. If you want fresh fish, shrimp and crabs stop in their Seafood Market and take some home! After filling up on crabs, corn and potatoes, we headed off to Fisherman’s Village. Loads of shopping, laughing, live music in the courtyard and ending our day with an adult beverage at Smuggler’s (located at the end of Fisherman’s Village on the Port Charlotte Bay). A wonderful and memorable day with lots of fun!
