What’s On Suncoast? 1.2 – 1.9

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are a few ideas for things to do around the area this week of January 2 – January 9, 2021!

Van Gogh Alive – Salvador Dali Museum

Van Gogh Alive – Salvador Dali Museum
One Dali Blvd., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

This unique event is billed as an immersive art installation. It features 3,000 of Van Gogh’s images via projectors and a classical music compilation to heighten the viewer’s senses. This visual and musical event allows visitors to feel as if they are walking into the paintings and experiencing them from a new perspective for sure. The brilliant colors and details are brought forward by the SENSORY4™ proprietary system. Developed in Australia the process allows for an experience, unlike any other art exhibit you have seen. Advance timed tickets should be purchased online. The exhibit will be at the Salvadore Dali museum through April.

Nokomo’s

Nokomo’s
690 S. Tamiami Trail, Nokomis, FL 34275

Not able to take a cruise or a vacation to the Caribbean these days due to COVID? We can enjoy a Caribbean flavored night at Nokomo’s here on the Suncoast in Nokomis. This 2019 Venice Area Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Finalist and 2020 Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice award-winning restaurant is sure to tickle the tastebuds with their fresh menu and tantalizing drink menus. The nightly music, outdoor seating in the hut, and sunsets are sure to relax you as you start the new year off this week right. Happy dining!

The Naples Players – Drive In Movie Night

The Naples Players – Drive In Movie Night
300 8th Street South, Naples, FL 34102

Looking for a socially distanced, fun night out with some blockbuster movies and old fan favorites? The Naples Players are hosting Drive-In Movie Nights through March, featuring such movies as Singin’ in the Rain, Ghost Busters, and Twister on a 33 foot, 12,000-lumen projector screen. There are onsite concessions, parking beginning at 7 p.m. with permits sent via mail to early ticket purchasers via the website. There are restrooms a block away at The Naples Players theatre, and masks required if needing to use facilities. Otherwise, this carload priced event for the family could be just the thing to get everyone out of the house and enjoy some amazing entertainment in the Suncoast’s outdoors. Check the website for movies showing, inclement weather, and of course, tickets!

Woody’s River Roo Pub & Grill

Woody’s River Roo Pub & Grill
5717 18th Street East, Ellenton, FL 34222

Featuring Black Angus Burgers, fresh seafood options, and exotic burger options like ostrich, bison, or kangaroo burgers, this restaurant is definitely worth trying. The amazing outdoor seating along the Manatee River and additional inside seating currently under social distance guidelines for all guests’ safety are definitely great for lunch or dinner options. The owners pride themselves on Old Florida Style dining with locally inspired cuisine, making them a favorite among locals. If your current dining options have been getting a little stale, a short drive can give you a fresh perspective on a great burger or a host of other menu surprises that once tried, will bring you back time and again.

The Butterfly Estates

The Butterfly Estates
1815 Fowler St., Fort Myers, FL 33901

A truly unique experience awaits at The Butterfly Estates, where resident species of butterflies to Southwest Florida are working to preserve, protect, and populate these beautiful creatures. The learning experience is a visual treat for the entire family. Featuring shopping and restaurants in the complex makes for a complete day out. The 3.600 sq. ft. glass conservatory is not just for show, but you will definitely learn about some of the amazing species of butterflies here on the Suncoast.
