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!

Ladyfish at The Naples Pier

As soon as we walked down the Naples pier for the first time, one of the guys yanked up a few ladyfish.  They look like small smelt but only larger and with a few extra fins.

I figured he was going to toss them into his cooler but he instead threw one back and rebaited his other rod with it to use as bait to catch a larger fish.

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 🙂

Spinarti Flatbread Pizza at Naples Flatbread

They drizzled reduced balsamic glaze on it.  Uhmmmm, yeah it tatsed as good as it looks.   You could put balsamic glaze on a peice of cardboard and it would be tasty.  I swear I love that stuff.

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.
