We're coming into the hot Florida summer, when locals can roam free from the hum of Winter tourism. I saw a sign on a motorbike on Anna Maria Island that read "Natives Rock, Tourists Drool." I love summer evenings here. The temperature drops 10-20 degrees and you can feel the breeze from all the bodies of water that surround us. So, at Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery in the center of the Village of the Arts at 1114 12th Street West, we've decided to celebrate Florida Summer Nights by extending our hours on Saturday nights from 9-11pm for "Summer Jam." Jim and I are part of a musical group called Studio Kitchen. We'll perform at the jams and welcome all to join in. Bring your instruments and get ready to play...or just come to listen and have wine, beer, or a light bite from our kitchen.
