Now for the Latest news …

** BRADENTON BEACH – Island Time Bar & Grill and the Bridge Street Bistro have new owners.

On Friday, Oct. 13, co-owners Bill Herlihy and John Hardesty closed the sale of their restaurant businesses to Steve Bishop and Ron Fuller, who own Surf Shack Coastal Kitchen in St. Armands Circle and Tampa.

Bishop and Fuller will continue to lease the building from property owner Angela Rodocker. According to Herlihy, the staff, including General Manager Kit Bradman, will be retained and business will continue as usual for the foreseeable future.

Herlihy and Hardesty bought Bridge Street Bistro on Jan. 31, 2011, and opened Island Time later that year on July 4. After 38 years, Herlihy will take a break from the restaurant business, but he and Hardesty still own and operate the Island Time Inn across the street; and Herlihy and his fiancée Cheryl Douma plan to get married in the coming year.

“I’ll be able to relax and go fishing now that I don’t have a three-story restaurant to run. I can watch my little hotel and enjoy the Island myself,” Herlihy said on Saturday.

“The city and the police department have been great to work with. I want to thank Barbara and Angela Rodocker for the opportunity, and thanks to all our customers for making us a huge success. I’m sure Ron and Steve will continue that success, and I wish them all the best.”

** Retrieved Anna Maria Island Sun 10/17/2017

We congratulate the new owners and wish them good luck with their venture.

We can’t wait for our next visit!

Where to stay on Anna Maria Island – Guest reviews – Thank You Kain Family!

10/04/2017

Perfect location and an outstanding rental unit!601 Gulf Drive North, Bradenton Beach, FL, 34217, United States
Date of Stay
Apr 28, 2017

If you’re searching for the perfect location on Anna Maria Island, and you also want a rental unit that is clean and well stocked, look no further. We loved the gorgeous views from the master bedroom and family room. The screened in porch was a bonus, as well. It is literally just a few steps away.

This particular spot on the beach is not crowded, and it’s simply beautiful. We watched a pod of dolphins swimming at sunset on our first night. Right next door, you will find the Wicked Cantina, where we enjoyed some delicious margaritas and fish tacos. It is an easy drive to Publix, dining options, little shops, piers, etc.

Terry is very easy to work with, highly responsive and has really updated the unit with tasteful furnishings and decor. The master bed is super comfy, and we had plenty of towels, beach towels, beach gear, etc. The pool is also very close to the unit, and it is well kept and the perfect size. I would definitely recommend the Beach Sands unit to anyone wanting a relaxing get away in a great location. Thanks for sharing your condo, Terry!

Where To Eat And Drink On Anna Maria Island – Recommended restaurants – Dining Out On Anna Maria Island

10/13/2017

DINING OUT? A few Restaurants we recommend you try ….

Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus ~ 3246 East Bay Drive, Holmes Beach

A little taste of Germany in the tropics even if eating schnitzel is not the first thing that comes to mind when in Florida. The Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus is a nice discovery.
An awesome place nestled in a strip mall, but don’t let the store front fool you.
The staff is warm, friendly and attentive and the owner Gary is very entertaining and gracious.
Having dinner here is always a treat. Their menu offers a good variety while serving very large portions. All their dishes are authentic German fare, homemade from Bavarian and Austrian recipes combined with a good selection of German draft beers and wine. We have ordered schnitzel, sauerbraten, as well as duck and everything was expertly prepared and well presented.
Definitely worth going and I would advise making reservations. They have lots of returning customers, including us.
This restaurant has it all: excellent service, excellent food and attention to detail.

EAT HERE ~ 5315 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach

We have eaten here multiple times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The menu standbys are great comfort food; the daily specials take advantage of locally sourced foodstuffs. The chef artfully embraces multiple cuisine styles, resulting in some unexpected–but delightful–flavor fusions in the daily specials. There is something to enjoy for everyone. We have had the Red snapper, Mahi tacos, Veal meatloaf and all were fantastic.
Located in a small strip mall in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, the outside appearance in a store front is deceiving because you will find the inside ambience is very interesting and ecclectic. We have always had an enjoyable experience at Eat Here, the food and service is excellent – we highly recommend it!

The Feast ~ 5406 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach

Several years ago we discovered this dining venue and we frequent it often. Situated in a strip mall The Feast is a hidden gem. From the outside this restaurant looks small and nothing too exciting, but once inside you will be pleasantly surprised.
The décor of the restaurant is nice informal, classy but comfy.
The menu varies, but always includes several entrees of local seafood. Also a choice of excellent salads, the large version of which could be an entree. They also have steak, veal, hamburgers and great pizza. We have never had a disappointing meal here.. Our last visit, our party had coconut shrimp and mussels. Everything was delicious! The portions are generous and their service–excellent!
This is one of our favourite eateries on Anna Maria Island. For sure one of the better restaurants on Anna Maria Island for quality, quantity and price. Definitely a must visit!

Recommendations by Ann Maria Island Condo Rentals:
601 Gulf Dr. N.

Amazing beach. Kids friendly. Great restaurants alongside the beach with great seafood. Nice size swimming pool. Great condo, very well organized, has everything you needed for the beach and pool . It’s facing the beach and we enjoyed the sunset as well as the view of the ocean every day. Very clean, linens smell fresh, plenty of towels. Terry, the owner, made sure that we had everything we needed. My family had an amazing vacation. Definitely planning to come back.

What to do in annamariaisland – News – The Clydesdale’s Come To Anna Maria Island

10/10/2017

BUDWEISER CLYDESDALES ARE COMING!

Clydesdales on Bridge Street – October 14, 2017

The Budweiser Clydesdales will be visiting Anna Maria Island! We will have a front row stop. They will be out front and a little south of our condos..

Saturday, October 14th from 5pm – 7pm. Come and enjoy watching them as they make their way from Cortez Beach to Bridge Street, down to the pier roundabout and back to Cortez Beach.

History on the Budweiser Clydesdales *

Quintessential Draft Horses — More than 300 years ago, this imposing breed was first developed for farm work in the region of Clydesdale, Scotland. They are most easily recognized for their substantial feather — the long hairs of the lower leg that cover the hooves. Despite a dressy appearance, they are capable of pulling a 1-ton load at 5 MPH.

Origins — The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933. A gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition, the presentation of the original two six-horse hitches of champion Clydesdales moved father, sons and drivers to tears. The phrase “crying in your beer” was officially coined shortly thereafter.

Drawing Beer and Crowds — No strangers to television broadcasts and parades, the Budweiser Clydesdales have figured prominently in two Presidential inaugurations. They appeared in Missouri native Harry Truman’s inaugural parade in 1949, and then again for Bill Clinton’s in 1993.

A Clydesdale’s Best Friend — In 1950, the Budweiser Clydesdales received their very own mascot: the Dalmatian. Traditionally used to guide horse-drawn fire carts, this spotted dog serves as friend and companion to the team, sitting aside the driver.

10 Fun Facts about the Budweiser Clydesdales *

What are the qualifications to be part of the Budweiser hitch?
Age: four years of age or older
Height: at least 6 feet tall from ground to shoulder
Weight: between 1,800 and 2,300 lbs.
Appearance: Bay coat, four white legs, white blaze, black mane and tail

How much does a Clydesdale eat?

Each Budweiser Clydesdale hitch horse will eat as much as 20 to 25 quarts of whole grains, 50 to 60 pounds of hay, and drink 30 gallons of water per day.

Where are the Hitch locations?

When the Budweiser hitches are not on the road, the Budweiser Clydesdales can be seen at the Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis, Mo., Merrimack, N.H., and Ft. Collins, Colo. They also may be seen at Grant’s Farm in St. Louis and at Warm Springs Ranch near Boonville, Mo.

How are locations chosen for appearances?

Thousands of requests for the Budweiser Clydesdales are received each year from all over the U.S. Each request is evaluated on criteria, such as: type of event, event dates, and how often the horses have made an appearance in or around that location.

How are the Clydesdales transported to events?

Ten horses are transported in three 50-foot tractor-trailers. The team stops each night at local stables so the horses can rest. Each trailer is equipped with air-cushioned suspension and thick rubber flooring to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride.

How does one become a Hitch Driver?

Driving the combined 12 tons of wagon and horses requires expert skill and physical strength. Hitch drivers endure a lengthy training process before they assume the prestigious role of “Budweiser Clydesdale Hitch Driver.”

How big are the Clydesdales’ horseshoes?

Clydesdale horseshoes measure more than 20 inches from end to end and weighs about 5 pounds – a regular horse’s shoe is about 10 inches and weighs about a pound.

What are the Clydesdale’s hoofs made of?

A Clydesdale’s hoof is made of a nerveless, horn-like substance similar to the human fingernail.

Does it hurt when a Clydesdale gets new shoes put on?

Not at all, it is much like a person getting a manicure.
What type of wagons are used at hitch events?

The wagons are restored, turn-of-the-century beer wagons.
