Wow, this week went fast. There's lots to do this weekend if you want to get out and enjoy the fact that warm weather is back (do not like temps below 50 at all....)

The big event of the weekend is Thunder by the Bay. The city of Sarasota is being invaded by thousands and thousands of motorcycles and their riders for the weekend. Several blocks down by the bay front will be blocked off Saturday & Sunday and the bikes take over the streets. Live music, lots of food and drink vendors and every style of motorcycle you can imagine. Friday night is a big party at the Hyatt from 7 - 12 pm with casino style gaming & a Harley-Davidson fashion show (what else?). Casual dress, adults $20. Sunday is a big bike ride and a 14 class bike show.

Friday night 6 - 9 pm is a car show at the Hooter's parking lot in Bradenton, on US41 south of Cortez Rd.

Friday & Saturday is also the Orchid Show & Sale at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium, Sat 9 am - 5 pm, Sun 10 am - 5 pm, tickets $5.

Friday & Saturday is the Anna Maria Island/Coquina Beach Winterfest, 10 am - 4:30 pm each day, arts & crafts, food vendors, fun.

Saturday night 5 - 9 pm is a car show at Joey D's Pizza in Bradenton at the NW corner of Cortez & US41, behind Room to Go.
