What's On Suncoast

What’s On Suncoast? 11.26 – 12.3

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things around the area this week of November 26 – December 3, 2021!

Poinsettia On Suncoast

Orban’s Annual Poinsettia Open House

Orban’s Annual Poinsettia Open House
9601 9th Ave NW, Bradenton, FL 34209

Orban’s Nursery is open to the public for one day only on Saturday, November 27, 2021, from 9 am to 3 pm. Come see over 200,000 blooming poinsettias before they are shipped to garden centers for the holidays. This is a rare opportunity for the community to visit our Nursery, take photos and buy our holiday plants. The event has become a popular local tradition. A portion of the proceeds go towards the Fl Nursery, Growers, Landscape Association’s Manasota Scholarship Fund, and the Duette One Room Schoolhouse. They will have local vendors, honey, vegetables, succulents, annuals, and of course, poinsettias available for sale.

Bird Rock on Suncoast

Birdrock Taco Shack

Birdrock Taco Shack
1213 13th Ave W Bradenton, FL 34205

Chef David Shiplett has found a home in the Village of the Arts in Bradenton, FL, as both an artist and a man that loves to be creative in the kitchen. The Birdrock Taco Shake is David’s own work of art, from the creations he whips up on the kitchen to the eclectic wall art you find throughout the place. He will tell you that the ancients believed the taco was man’s first good, the bread or shell layer from corn was usually easy to mill and then become the container for anything on hand. The Birdrock Taco Shack can include shrimp, pork belly, chicken, skirt steak with queso Suisse along with a host of vegetarian and vegan options to ensure no one leaves the shake hungry. Stop by for an experience that you won’t soon forget, and your stomach will thank you for. Open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 9 pm.

Hair on suncoast


Asolo Repertory Theatre – 5555 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34243

Hair is the rock musical that started it all. This joyous rebellion proudly reclaims love as the heart of what it means to be American. Packed with music that is beautiful, irreverent, and deeply evocative, the quirky, all-inclusive vibe doesn’t shy away from poignant social commentary. This iconic musical and Grammy Award-winning score get an exuberant and resonant retelling in the hands of Broadway and Asolo Rep favorite Josh Rhodes. Unforgettable numbers like “The Flesh Failures (Let the Sun Shine In),” “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” and “Hair” will bring audiences to their feet! Now showing from November 18, 2021- – through January 1, 2022. Check the website for all times, tickets, and other information.

Manos on Suncoast

Manos bakery cafe

Manos bakery cafe
1971 Drew St Clearwater, FL 33765

The Kranias family has been baking European breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, and confections for three generations.  Gregory Kranias opened his first bakery in 1922. From the beginning, fine natural products and personal service were always the pinnacle of their success.  Grandfather Gregory grew his own wheat and had it ground in the local grist mill, then baked the bread in wood-burning brick ovens.  Once the day’s baking was complete, Grandfather Gregory would place the breads and pastries in baskets and deliver them door-to-door in his donkey-drawn cart.

That tradition continued with his son Yanni until mid-1970.  From 1970 on, they modernized the operation but maintained the tradition of exceptional service and fine quality.  Today the bakeries in Greece are still managed by Yanni, his wife Mary, and sons Gregory and Vasilios as bakers and fine pastry chefs. Emanuil (Manos), Yanni’s second son, emigrated to the US and kept up the family tradition. He opened Sweet Bread Co. in South Tampa, before opening Manos Bakery Cafe in Clearwater. Please stop in for a taste of authentic food so good it will keep you coming back time and again. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday: 7 am until 7 pm and Saturday: 8 am until 5 pm.
