One of our members, Caterina V,. suggested having a Happy Hour type of evening at Lido Beach Resort Hotel.  I called and the specials are 2-for-1 drinks, and all appetizers are 1/2 the menu price.  Happy Hour prices are good 5 to 7 PM.

Where:  The Lido Beach Resort Hotel Tiki Bar

700 Ben Franklin Drive Sarasota, Florida 34236

Plan to  join Caterina and myself next Wednesday, the 25th, for getting together, make a little merry, and possibly get a sunset in to boot!  

The TIKI BAR is out towards the gulf waters near the pool, but IF IT IS RAINING, we will be in the CAFE, which they tell me is just inside, off the main entrance lobby, and it also honors Happy Hour specials.

Either way, it is a "time to catch up".   This is not a "must-be-a member evening", so no dues need be paid to be present.  Just come along, and bring your friends, relatives, and no pets. (LOL)...and let's catch up.  You can sign up on the site, or if you are NOT a paid member, then you will need to send a RSVP if you ARE COMING, and include any friends you want to join us there also.

    Fabulous group of interesting people! Love the international connection and sharing of travel adventures! Great laid-back location which encouraged mixing & mingling amongst the large tikibar and pool area tables. Hope we have Happy Hours more often!! Thanks, Caterina

    We are all looking forward to a laid-back Happy Hour tonight! Saundra Sage and I will be at the Pool Tikibar about 5:00pm. The Pool Tikibar is a beautiful location with panoramic view of the Gulf and sunset. It's summer, and I'll be wearing flip flops.

In my Announcement, I do mention to write to [masked] if you are not able to register through the site. Registering through the site requires one to be a dues paid member. If you ar enot, just write me and bring any friends. Weather is beautiful by the water these evenings. Let's enjoy it together.
