You want great food, comfortable friendly service, the best music in Naples and reasonable prices? It’s Weekend Willie’s!

Located in the Heart Of Naples we went after the beach.  The food is fantastic, the service friendly and on point. 
Must try dish- the chicken marsala.

They get everything right in a relaxed atmosphere. Never pretentious, just right for a meal with family and friends.
Highly recommended!

My Warm Weaher Drink Of Choice When Away From Home- Stoli-O Tonic Prepared Here At Handsome Harry’s Naples, Fl

On warm days if I’m going to have a cocktail it’s usually an Stoli Oranj (Stoli-O in the bar trade) and tonic.  It is smoothand refreshing and while some flavored vodkas can have an aftertaste which I’m not fond of Stoli-O on a hot day when on vacation and I don’t have access to my favorite local Beauport vodka will suit me just fine.

I had *ahem* a few of these last night :)

Naples Beach Hotel Outdoor Facilities Tour

This is the joint I’ve been hanging around during my winter vacations for almost 20 years. It’s old school Naples Florida and still retains that charm of Florida the way it used to be.

The staff is friendly, the facilities perfect and the whole place just works. We pull up, valet the car and set up on the beach. There are eating, drinking and bathroom facilities open to the public. If you spend $15 at the bar or on food there is no charge for the valet.

Big-Ass Shrimp at Kirk’s Seafood Naples Florida

As most of you know whenever I go on vacation I try to swing by whatever seafood establishments are around and talk to the people there to get a feeling of what is happening in their corner of the world.

Kirk Seafood is a retail store located across the street from Cambier Park.  The park we bring the girls in the heart of olde Naples, Florida.  I popped in and commented about the “Big-Ass Shrimp” sign saying “Big-Ass Shrimp!  I Love That!”  The woman behind the counter replied “well I loved writing it!”

Come to find out she was the owner and a Massachusetts native.  She had married a fisherman from Marco Island over 20 years ago and moved down to be with him. 

We got to talking about fishing and the regulations which have pretty much decimated the commercial fishing industry down there.  I thought we had it bad where we are but it seems the commercial fishing lobby down south was no match for the regulators down there.  So she turned to retail and has a beautiful store.  Spottless and the fish was the freshest I’ve seen down here.  We talked for a good bit-until my spidey senses told me the Mrs probably had had enough and she was ready to hit the park.
