Flamingo/Potrero News

People are still working off some great Thanksgiving celebrations held in our area, with dinners of traditional turkey, trimmings and pumpkin desserts. Don Brasilito’s and the Happy Snapper offered great meals as well as that other Thanksgiving staple, football, on their large-screen televisions. The day after, Black Friday was also celebrated here; at the Paseo del Mar, Bermuda Hotel Supply marketed special discounts on home decor items, artwork and furniture.  

The Shack is back, remodeled with new equipment, staff and an evolving new menu. The new owner and manager, Harry Baker, has transformed the place and reopened the restaurant. For now, hours are 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (closed Mondays). 

Marie’s Restaurant has a great lineup of live music shows this month: Dec. 9, Local Legend; Dec. 17, Donnie Walsh and The Downchild Blues Band; Dec. 24, annual Christmas carol party with Josh Wilson; and Dec. 31, New Year’s Eve party with Fabienne and The Swing Cats.
