MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2017
Please take a few minutes this weekend to remember those who gave their lives in sacrifice to our country.....
SAVOR SARASOTA RESTAURANT WEEK...Returns this Thursday and runs through 6/14. A three course lunch will cost you $16 while the same number of courses is $32 for dinner. With over 80 area restaurants participating, I'm sure you'll find a favorite at their extensive web site. If you are planning to eat out multiple times, then I suggest downloading the APP, which includes menus from participating restaurants. Click here to download their App.
Several restaurants are starting early. In fact, The Rosemary began serving their Savor menus today, and plan to extend beyond 6/14. Unlike many participants, The Rosemary's menus are extensive, and include some of their most popular items. Trust me you will not leave hungry. I suggest you call early for reservations, as most favorable seating's will be booked. Call 941-955-7600. You can click on here to view both menus.

Had dinner there a few weeks ago, and found the ribs, beef and pulled pork outstanding. I'd call this an upscale version of Nancy's. No reservations here, so be prepared to wait during peak hours and weekend. Their website and logo are a work in progress.

Parking is sometimes difficult; however, you will always find a space behind Saks. From there it's shop til you drop!!!
Before my weekly rant, I want to tell you about a landscape lighting company I've had the pleasure of doing business with for over 12 years. Night Affects Inc. will design, install and maintain your lighting both front and back for as long as you own your home; and probably after, knowing Mike Flanegin.

JIM'S RANT...The deadly attack last week in Manchester put a whole new spin on terrorism. Targeting children outside an Araina Grande Concert shows the scum will go to any extreme to prevent us from living a normal life. I can understand Grande's devistation, and her postponement of a few performances.
But, the show must go on, and as Joe Perry of Aerosmith put it when deciding to continue his tour, "I don't think we want to live like that, or the band wants to live like that, and our fans don't want to live like that..so we've notched it up a bit, and now it's a celebration of freedom and we're not going to stop." I couldn't agree more!!!!
Ariana Grande is going back to Manchester sooner rather than later. She is headlining a huge concert in the city a week from today(Sunday). She will not be alone, as several yet to be named performers will be joining her. Live Nation will be producing with ALL proceeds going to victims and their families.......
It's good to be back...See you next week...JIM
