Yeah I’m a Floridian. Staying at Hyatt Regency. Looking for good food and drink and stuff to do.  Nothing gun related as I’ve bought too much already

Get the catfish, frog leg and gator platter at the Linger lodge for lunch and then take the tour of the Ringling mansion.

Love me some gator but I'm over frog legs.  Eaten enough for a lifetime.

Yep but I would add
1. go fuck with the gators and/or wild hogs at Myakka.
2. Watch the dirty hippies and damn tourists dance at the drum circle on Siesta Key beach Sunday evening.
3. Lots of beach bars have live music in the evening, pick one and hope for a good musician.

In the next town up in Bradenton there's a cool little microbrewery called 3 keys.
Great burgers.

Definitely check out Ringling Mansion. I wasn't big on the circus museum part.
I really enjoyed the art museum part, and the Mansion. Art back to the 1600's in the art museum. I'd like to go there again.

Going here tonight. https://www.rodiziogrill.com/ pricey, but damned good food.

Rodizio was pretty good last time i went (2 years ago). Be sure to try mirnas for great Cuban, Charlie's steak and hoagie for an amazing sandwich at lunchtime, and luna in Venice for great lasagna in a cool restaurant. Walts on 41 also has great seafood but it gets super busy. Starfish seafood in Cortez is a really small old Florida type of place. Starfish and luna are cash only and both 30 to 40 minutes from the Hyatt.

Gaucho had jokes tonight. Comes up to the table, fried armadillo, fresh off 75.
