| Angela Naff |



The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are a few ideas for things to do around the area this week of February 5, 2021 – February 12, 2021!

Super Sunday 5K – NBP

Super Sunday 5K – NBP
5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota, FL 34235

Come out and challenge yourself to a brisk but lively 5K in this chipped, timed event at the gorgeous Nathan Benderson Park this coming Sunday. We know that the professional ballplayers will be on the field later in the day. Why not get out and get a bit of exercise during this event to start the day off with a bang. There are New Balance gift certificates for overall winners. Additionally, shirts, medals, and a healthy dose of personal satisfaction to be had for all participants. Run or walk in 2 staggered timed heats to best control crowds for COVID precautions. Check out the website for tickets and other precaution information. We’ll see you at the race!!

Motorworks Brewing

Motorworks Brewing
1014 9th Street West, Bradenton, FL 34205

If you haven’t visited the home of some of the best craft beer, and the largest beer garden in Florida – now is the time. With Live music on Fridays, attendance limits to allow the best social distanced fun this makes for a fun time. Maybe a bit of Trivia on Mondays? What are you waiting for? This family and furry pet-friendly environment may be the break from the boredom of quarantine you are looking for this week. Take a look at all the special events, precautions in place for your safety and maybe a tantalizing peak at the beers and other options Motorworks has to offer this week!
