Bar Fly Saltwater Grill, Safety Harbor, Fl.

What a gem! Friends took us to the Bar Fly Saltwater Grill on Main Street in Safety Harbor and what a treat! The Bloody Mary Bar is worth the trip itself, it looks like a whole meal in a glass! The steamed bucket was amazing, with snow crabs, oysters, and jumbo shrimp. And the Smoked Fish dip was fantastic. Prices are reasonable and you have a choice of inside or outside seating. We went on a Sunday and waited a little, but it was so worth the wait! We took the time to walk around the town a bit. Don’t be in a hurry when you go, you will be there a couple of hours!

The Safety Harbor Resort and Spa is directly across the street from the Bar Fly – make sure you walk through and make plans to revisit for their Sunday Brunch!

Sharky’s – Venice, Fl.

Sharky’s on Venice Beach is one of our favorite places to go! Food is amazing, sunsets are beautiful and the owner, Jason, is friendly and welcoming to all his guests. Ask about joining Pier Pals! Spend a day on the beach and walk over to grab lunch or stay for dinner and watch the sunset.

Beautiful sunsets!

Pier Pals is a program where you go once a month, get invites to guests appreciation dinners and a no-wait to get in! If you are interested in a more formal atmosphere visit Fin’s at Sharky’s.

Skullywag Pubcrawl!

Saturday was a nice warm sunny day for the Anna Marie Island Privateers and just a “few” fun friends riding the Skullywag for a pubcrawl. Pubs included Tommy Knockers on Anna Marie Island, Peggy’s Corral and Jaxx Playbook. What’s not to like living in Florida!

A Perfect, Warm, night for a Christmas Boat Show!

It doesn’t get much better than this! A clear, warm night in Apollo Beach, Fl., watching the Christmas-decorated boats show off their creativity. Crowds gathered to join in the fun. If you plan to go next year, I would definitely suggest going early as we did. We sat on the outside terrace and enjoyed the view, food and a few cocktails with friends.

Cooper’s Hawk Winery, Tampa, Fl.

Cooper's Hawk Winery, Tampa2Visit Cooper’s Hawk Winery in Tampa, Fl. and find an array of wines to fit anyone’s pallet. The wines are amazing, service is impeccable, food is fantastic, and prices are reasonable!

A great way to spend an evening whether meeting new friends at the wine bar or having a delicious meal in the dining room.

When I was there, I tried the ‘flight’ which was a wonderful way of tasting different types of wine and then deciding which one I liked the best. I also joined their Wine Club which is designed to help explore, share and pair wines with remarkable food. Each month you have the option of picking up your favorite bottle of wine or having it shipped directly to your door! How easy is that!

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!
