John’s birthday was yesterday, but since we love him so much, the celebration is being extended to include the whole weekend. That being said, it didn’t have the most glamorous start. They both start with a “g” but a garage sale is anything but glamorous. Unless, you spend some of your earnings on lobster.And one was free! Lotsa Lobster is just South of the Sarasota Square Mall, and they’ll give you a free lobster on your birthday…but sorry, kiddies, you have to be 18 to indulge. You also have to spend $10, which is no problem considering their selection of fresh scallops, clams and fish.With our bellies full of lobster and drawn butter practically seeping from our skin, we floated off to the Sarasota Boat Parade of Lights. The weather was perfect and the sun was setting as we made our way over to Marina Jack.
Sidebar for the house Katherine Harris is building. The word on the street is that it’s a house for entertaining not living. There’s supposedly multiple fireplaces and a large ballroom surrounded by balconies.
