Flamingo/Potrero News

November 20, 2009

Some outstandingly beautiful and original items will be on display and for sale at the Artisans’ Fair Dec. 11 from noon until 4 p.m. at Marie’s Restaurant. Our local artisans have suffered as much as anyone during the past year, but have spent the time honing their skills and coming up wonderful new crafts.

Mar y Sol Restaurant in Flamingo on the north ridge is open for the high season. Come for a drink at sunset and dinner afterwards. For more information, call 2654-4151 for reservations or take out. Amberes Restaurant in Flamingo also is open for the season!

Becky Dalton hosted a birthday party for her husband, Bill, with a special meal prepared by Jean Luc of Mar y Sol and lots of friends who know the Dalton’s personally. Happy birthday, Bill!

The organic food market is open every Friday from 2–5 p.m. at Maxwell’s in Surfside. The Surfside market also offers specially priced vegetables, starting around 10 a.m., so come by and check out the selection they have as well.

It appears that more vacationers are come to our area this year, so perhaps we will have a more successful seasonal kick-off than we did last year. Plans for Thanksgiving are underway, so order or purchase your turkey sooner rather than later!
