The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime

Are four-legged furry friends your favorite kind of companion? Well, then you won’t want to miss the Bazaar on Apricot and Lime this weekend as it is going to the dogs. Local pet vendors, animal rescues, and live music will set a fun tone for this sweet event. Whether you are looking to adopt a new pet or maybe find some delectable treats for your current favorite furry family member – there is sure to be something for everyone. Animal Network and Satchel’s Last Resort, Shannon Spring Animal Communicator, Little Sweet Vegan, and Hamlet’s Eatery, along with 25+ other vendors, will be on hand to make this Saturday morning one for the books. See you there!

Irish 31

3750 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34239

Of course, this one had to make our list this week, as it is St. Patrick Day coming up faster than we all could have imagined. While every day, the luck of the Irish for amazing food, great drink, and good friends is alive in the spirit of Irish 31 – St. Paddy’s is extra special here. Join them for live music starting at 6 p.m. Green Beer, Leprechaun Shots, and Giveaways will help top this holiday off in proper fashion. The amazing chef-inspired dishes are one of the many draws to Irish 31. Along with a lofty goal to be “The People’s Pub” of choice drives them to keep growing and perfecting the amazing menus and great drink. See what all the fuss is about this week.

Sure, St. Paddy’s day may be about the beer, fun, and friends, but maybe a little exercise leading up to that most fun of holidays isn’t such a bad idea? Join other motivated runners for either a 5K or 10K jaunt about Nathan Benderson this coming Saturday, March 13th starting at 7:00 a.m. This will be a socially distanced event with 5K waves starting at 7 a.m. The truly motivated 10K waves will start at 7:30 a.m. that morning. Be sure to register and get your packets early to get in on this fun start to the weekend. Fit2Run will have awards available after for the age bracket winners to avoid social distancing concerns of crowds at the end of the race. Keep that 2021 New Years’ resolution headed in the right direction with a great run around this amazing park this weekend!

El Melvin Cocina Mexican

1355 Main Street, Sarasota, FL 34236

Ready to spice up your Tuesdays with Taco Tuesdays, or maybe a margarita to finish off the week? Well, El Melvin Cocina Mexican has a robust menu chock full of modern Mexican cuisine appetizers, entrees, and drinks. There is much to enjoy about this restaurant which is sure to make your repeat list after one visit. Six times a week there is live music, express lunch options daily for those on the move, and even weekend brunch. You don’t have any excuses for not swinging by to add some spice to your business lifestyle. This more upscale setting makes for amazing date nights, celebrations out with friends, or maybe just another Thursday. Stop down today for Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m., or Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. for a sampling of what you have been missing.
