6th Annual Let’s Eat!-Englewood Celebration is Underway!

Some eat to live… I live to eat.  I’m not ashamed of it…I love food and anyone that knows me, gets to see the fruits of my labor every Sunday evening on Facebook.  So, for a foodie like me “Let’s Eat Englewood” is my Superbowl.  For those that are not familiar, “Let’s Eat” is a culinary adventure throughout Englewood that won’t break the bank.  The 6th Annual “Let’s Eat! -Englewood” is happening now through October 1st.   This year we have a record twenty-five (25) restaurants, including 3 ice cream shops, participating by preparing special prix fixe lunch and dinner menus.  The 2-course lunch menus are priced at $13.00 with the 3-course dinner menus priced at $26.00.  Those included are: Beach Road Wine Bar & Bistro, Boca Royale Golf & Country Club, Cafe 776, Farlow’s on the Water, Howards Restaurant, Isabella’s Bistro, Ken & Barb’s, Landy’s Restaurant, La Stanza Ristorante, The Lighthouse Grill at Stump Pass, Lock ‘N Key Restaurant & Pub, Mango Bistro, Nicola’s Italian Kitchen, Obee’s Sub Shop, Paraiso Mexican Grille and Bar, The Placida Grill, The Placida Pearl, Prime Time Steak & Spirits Inc, Ricaltini’s Bar & Grille, The SandBar Tiki & Grille, Texas Best Barbecue and The Waverly Restaurant and Bar.  Also participating are: A Better Scoop Ice Cream, Swirls n’ Curls Ice Cream and The Arctic Alligator Creamery.  All the info is available online at  LetsEatEnglewood.Com.  A thank you to Sysco West Coast Florida for the support this year.

The Chamber continues to offer support during these challenging times for small businesses with our monthly Lunch & Learn free workshops. The topic for Thursday, September 24th is “Staying Engaged Digitally with your Customers” Featured speaker is Palma Frable of Palm Trends Marketing. Individually wrapped lunches from Obee’s Sub Shop will be provided courtesy of Sun Coast Inn.  Seats are limited, to comply with CDC guidelines, so register online at EnglewoodChamber.Com

Most people with a smartphone use their GPS for assistance when traveling, so many assume “paper maps” are a thing of the past.  Not true!  The Chamber hands out free maps everyday…no exaggeration!  I am amazed at how many we hand out.  They are great for visitors, newcomers and anyone who likes to see the big picture.  I might also add they are very pretty!  I am easily distracted by pretty things…flowers, diamonds, shiny shoes and colorful maps!  Feel free to stop by and grab 1 or 2 for you and a friend.  Our lobby is open Monday-Friday 9am-4:30pm at 601 S. Indiana Avenue-Englewood.  We also have our Community Guides available, that are a great resource for all things Englewood.  I might also mention, they are very pretty!  The cover photo showcases the sunset on Lemon Bay and is credited to Mary Lundeberg, who won our photo contest last fall.  We have a digital version that can be viewed on our website: EnglewoodChamber.Com

I want to also mention if you are a business looking for ways to network and get more involved with you community, becoming a Chamber Member is your best bet.  Since 1941, the Englewood Florida Chamber of Commerce has been making Englewood a better place to live and work. Be a catalyst for change in your community… Join today.   It’s seriously fun business!

    Any idea when the beach bathrooms will be open?
    My family is from Iowa and my parents have a condo in Englewood and would love to travel there in June….

    We do not know for sure yet…that will be decided by our county commissioners. The CC webpage is the best resource for updated info on our beaches/parks & rec rules.
