February Cruisin’ on Dearborn Street

Cruisin’ on Dearborn Street is a monthly event held on the first Saturday of the month.  Being mid season for our “snowbird” friends from up north, it was not surprising to see plenty of out of state cars on display.  The event seems to be getting bigger and bigger each time I attend and while we there a number of cars left and were immediately replaced by others looking to show off their pride and joy.


For a look at other cars that were on display, arriving or departing I have set aside a page in the website englewoodfl.us.  This link will take you to the home page.   Once there, you will be guided to the cruisin’ page  or you could use this link to take you there directly.

 Lemon Bay Fest.

The Lemon Bay Fest was held on Friday, February 4th to Saturday February 11. The week long event is a celebration of the history of Englewood and in that vein there were walking tours of the historic section with guides provided by the Southwest Historical Organization of Resources and Education (SHORE).  Talks and information on a variety of subjects, such as shell collecting and displays, Identifying common birds in SW Florida, films on Patrick Smiths Florida – A Sense of Place – and “Cracker” – The Last Cowboys of Florida, Cooking Demonstrations, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico and many other topics. The final day of the Fest was the Cracker Fair, held at Pioneer Park and featured entertainment on the stage, a Lemon Dessert contest, food vendors, games for the kids, artists and more.

Restaurants in Englewood.

We have a couple of new openings in the area, one being Robs Pizzeria and the other is the Lighthouse Grill at Stump Pass.

Rob’s Pizzeria is located in Merchants Crossing and offers Dine In, Delivery or Takeout service.  Although Rob is well known for his hand spun pizza platters they also also serve Italian Dinners, Subs, Salads, Calzone’s and Stromboli’s.
The Lighthouse Grill at Stump Pass is located in the Marina at 260 Maryland Ave. The new owners have done a wonderful job of renovating the Stump Pass Grill, as it was formerly called, and now has a much larger seating capacity. An on site smoke house prepares smoked salmon, smoked baby back ribs, pork and chicken. An excellent selection of fish is also on the menu,

New On Line Auction.

A new online auction made its debut last month with more offerings in the near future.

Farmers Market Expands.

Each time I visit  the Farmers Market I am amazed at the growth over the past few years and the quality and diversity of the products offered.

The market is available from October to May and is located in Pioneer Park next to Mango’s restaurant and has now spread across the street to the north side of Dearborn Street and also to the parking area of the EARS store,

In addition to a vast array of vegetables and fruit there are a lot of other choices to be had including:
Indian prepared dishes:
Seafood – loved the crab claws spread out on the ice:
Organic products:
Hot sauce, jams & jelly. bakery items (get there early – they sell out):
a sea of tomatoes and delicious fruit.

Updates on Dearborn Street.

The row of renovated stores are still vacant, however there are quite a few changes worthy of note.
The Ole Time Cafe, famous for its breakfast and lunches under the branches of the big oak tree, is once again up for sale. In the same general area is Earth Treasures, who are relocating to 207 Miami Ave. in Venice.  Their last day on Dearborn St. will be Jan. 26.

Just west of the Old Florida Gallery & Outdoor Center are a couple of buildings, one is Past Revisited – a new business featuring restored furniture, the other one is available for rent.
The facility formerly occupied by Mystic Sea is also available for a new tenant, so all in all there are a lot of changes happening downtown.

A Boeing / Stearman proudly stands on the flight line at Buchan Airport on the 8th of October ready for a host of admirers to come and see the workmanship required to build and maintain this magnificent aircraft. Hurricane Mathew was churning up the east coast of the state and the outer bands had not invaded this area yet, so it was a beautiful day – cloudless with light winds to cool everyone off.

June 2016

In this blog I have decided to bypass the usual updates to Englewood business and do a little promotion for a change. A few years back Dearborn Street was fortunate to have a great boutique “At Home with Style” run by owner Jottie Taylor.

Then the building she was located in was sold and required a move to Venice. Jottie has since closed “At Home with Style” and is concentrating on travel (recently a tour of Asia with her husband Eric).

Jottie’s daughter, Angelina Assereto, lives and works in Los Angeles as an actress. The business is one of the toughest to break into and Anglina has had roles in a number of films and T.V. shows. She has 13 years under her belt so far and is sharing her promo film with us, Never Give Up, which is sent off  to various Hollywood executives during the pilot season. Angelina definitely has the confidence and determination to make it in this highly competitive business and I hope you will enjoy this short film.

Art shows downtown.

I have been providing free promotion of the artists when they are doing their show in the area. It would seem that over the years the threat of plagiarism or copying the works of art, real or imaginary, has made it more difficult to take pictures of the events so I regret that I will no longer display art shows on this website.

Buchan Airport Fly-In 2015.

Grummon on final1941 Grumman Amphibian on final approach to Buchan Airport

On October 10th we celebrated another breakfast fly-in at the Buchan Airport. The weather cooperated as per usual and the fly-in was a success with many aircraft flying in from various parts of Florida.

Fly-in 01

Arriving early I was able to get a good parking space since there is lots of room with guides to assist you to a space.

To see more of the Buchan Airport fly-in use the following link to take you to the Fly-in appropriate page of the website.

Halloween Safe Walk.

Trick or Treat 18

The annual Halloween Safe Walk was a roaring success.

I heard a couple talking about their impressions of the event and stated that last year they thought the event had run it course, but this year was an extravaganza.

We sat outside a “soon to be open” coffee shop on the north side of Dearborn and just watched the kids walk by.

Click on the following link to view the pictures taken at the Halloween Safe Walk.
Next month’s blog will discuss a number of restaurants that have moved to different locations and a number of new coffee shops that will soon be open.

Changes on Dearborn Street.

The Old Hardware Store, built by Mr, Ziegler around 1919, has new ownership and also a new purpose in life. The new owners had no intention of maintaining a hardware store, instead they had plans of opening a museum, or housing the CRA, without changing the  character of the building. This did not work out.Old Hardware StoreSo a change of plans was put into effect and the result was an art gallery in one half of the store and the other half being the kayak and paddle board section. The art gallery houses selected works of local artists while the kayak and paddle board handles sales and excursions. Your guide has over 20 years of service with the State in the Parks and Recreation division and will ensure that you have a memorable trip.

Visit the website of the Old Florida Gallery and Outdoor Center by clicking on this link.

The Mermaids Cafe has replaced CoffeeMermaid Cafe
with Kathy, who have returned to the Pacific Northwest for a climate more to their liking. My understanding is that their intentions are to expand the coffee and ice cream  sections to include a deli and bakery.

Do not have a anticipated date for the modifications.
Fence gone

The fence is finally down. It’s been a long time in coming but the newly renovated building will soon be the home to some new tenants. The building used to be the home of the Art Alliance and At Home with Style and is located just east of the Old Florida Gallery and Outdoor Center. The pile of gravel to the right of the picture will be spread and then the pavers, on the left, will be laid.  Should look nice.  I will update as I find out who is leasing space.

Earth Treasures
Directly across the street is Earth Treasures, who have replaced the former tenants, a barber shop. They sell sharks teeth, gems, minerals and figurines.

Stop in and browse.

April 2015

Spring Arts Festival.

Once again the weather cooperated nicely  and we had two days of glorious weather for the Art Fest. I attended on Saturday and the attendance was excellent, however, I was rather disappointed in the number of signs prohibiting photography of their booths. I understand the need  to protect the artists work from plagiarism and I will comply with their request, their loss is the fact that I cannot promote their art or their websites.

I see another dog 1

Many locals brought their pets with them for the outing, which provided a good photo opportunity.

To see more pictures and find out more about the event,  check out website at http://englewoodfl.us and follow the link on the first page to the Art Fest.

Computer Issues.

I am sorry that it has been quite a time since the last update, however massive computer failure has required a replacement of 2 computers and a realization that I have to rewrite the entire website. It also brought to mind the Blog content for this issue which is going to be Restaurants in Englewood.  We are fortunate in this area in that we have an abundance of family owned restaurants with chain establishments in close by towns such as Venice and Port Charlotte.  I have decided to leave out the sandwich shops, such as Subway, McDonalds, Hungry Howies and the like but included pizza joints and chinese pickups.

The Old becomes New.      Howards.


Howards has been a family favorite in Englewood for many a year operating out of their location south of Beach Blvd. on South McCall Rd. Approximately six months ago they acquired the building formerly housing the Sassy Snapper and started a complete renovation of the building. The net result is a super sharp facility with lots of parking for patrons at 70 N. Indiana Ave, a block north of Dearborn Street. Howard’s still serves its very popular all you can eat crab legs 3 days a week and all you can eat basa 3 days a week. Mondays they are closed.  Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling :
