Just a side note about "dog people" and "dog culture"... We have owned 3 dogs over the past 30 years. Until this most recent dog, Sammy, we just got a puppy, added it into the family mix and moved on. We had a dog, but we were not "dog people". I did not realize what this meant until this new dog. Since we live in Ohio, if you get a new puppy Feb 1 (stupid idea) you have to do extra things like shoveling snow ...
... a place that has more going on after 5. The south end, Bradenton Beach, has more motels, tourist bars, shops, etc. My guess is there is more going on there in the evening as well.

Since then, The Ringling has grown to include a circus museum, theater and library. Stewardship passed to Florida State University in 2000, and The Ringling is now one of the largest college art complexes ...
... a Miami Vice, half Stan’s original recipe Pina Colada and half Rum Runner. The drinks were definitely superior to the burger, in hindsight I should have just sucked it up and got fish but the clam chowder was nice and creamy without being too thick and was loaded with clam chunks. We got to see some kids feed their leftovers to the catfish, called it a day and headed back to Sarasota for a late dinner.
