Naples 22nd Boat Parade • 6-9 • Village on Venetian Bay

Today - December 11 • Naples 22nd Boat Parade • 6-9
The Village on Venetian Bay • FREE FOR ALL AGENTS

The Village on Venetian Bay's 22nd Annual Boat Parade is today at the Venetian Bay. There will be all kinds of things to do tonight I read today that there will be a magic show and Pirates walking around entertaining everyone. Then you get to watch the Boat Parade, like I said early this week there is nothing better then going to a parade with the family. I must say if you have never heard of or witnessed a Boat Parade then you are missing out. Sitting on the grass and listening to the childern run and play trying to catch everything that is thrown there way. That is a Good Time... No matter what your age is.

Come early and dine at any of the fine resturants 0r Deli's that are located here. Bayside, Colyde's Steak and Lobster house and Maxwell's on the Bay to name a few.

December 9 • Naples Christmas Parade • 6-8pm • Downtown Naples

Naples' 15th Annual Christmas Parade
Naples Christmas Parade • 12/09/08 • 6-8pm • Downtown Naples

Tomorrow is the 15th annual Naples Christmas Parade. Come down and watch the faces of everyone around light up. Parades turn everyone into a kid again. Just saying the work Parade brings a smile to my face. No matter how young or old you are there is nothing like someone waving to you like you are the only one sitting on that curb, or when catch that piece of candy thrown in you direction. There is always something exciting going on, the thrill of the police siren belting out as it passes you or the Shriner's riding the little bikes. Parades are just PURE fun for the whole family.

So far there are at least 200 floats/vehicles that will be filling the streets of Downtown Naples. With the main attraction "Santa Clause & Mrs. Clause" closing out the parade. I sure hope to see you there tomorrow. Look out for me I'm the one who will be trying to get all of the candy.

This year the Naples Christmas Parade will start at the intersection of Broad Ave S and Third Street S, then travel north on Third Street S, turning onto Fifth Avenue, and make its last turn onto Eighth Street S and ending at City Hall.

Best Mom and Pops restaurant in Naples

Frascati's Italian Restaurant
1258 Airport Road North • Naples, Florida

We got the chance to eat at Frascati's Italian Restaurant this past weekend and let me tell you this is a must stop for any Italian food lover. We got the artichoke dip to start off with, now this was no regular artichoke dip it was the Mecca of all Artichokes. The creamy cheese and the soft but firm artichokes atop of a crispy slice of garlic bread just the right size for my water mouth to bite in half was only the start of our wonderful meal.

Lins got the "never go wrong with" chicken Alfredo and I opted for the chicken Marsala. Before we could taste any of these we handed this chilled salad bowls that had the most delicious salad dressing that I have ever put in my mouth. It was a creamy Italian that was so tasty I couldn't stop myself from running my finger around the bowl just to get every single last drop.

Then came the French bread, this warm, crispy bread that we tried to push away but couldn't. Now at this point we are asking each other "is this food really this good or are we really this hungry" the fact is the food was really that good. Not one thing we ate in Frascati's Italian Restaurant was sub-par.

Once my Marsala hit the table in front of me I was too full to eat both pieces (which is highly uncommon for myself). I have never had Marsala like it was served here, it had ham with it, I've never seen that before but let me tell you this that ham was perfect and the mushrooms - to die for.  That sweet Marsala sauce dripping from each warm bite of perfectly grill chicken; you cannot go wrong with that.  

Linsey's grilled chicken Alfredo was ridiculously good as well.  It wasn't your normal greasy Alfredo sauce that we all are so use to, this sauce was thick and creamy.  Even the leftovers the next day were not oily. 

We both brought food home and we ate for less then $50.  You cannot beat that, Not in this town.  I highly recommend this Frascati's to anyone who lives or is just visiting Naples, Florida. This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in all of Southwest Florida.
