It’s official. The temperature is spiking, Memorial Day weekend is in our rear view mirror and we’re suddenly craving a popsicle for no reason at all. The dog days of summer are here! We’re kicking off the season of sunshine with a brand new edition of SRQ | The Magazine and you’re going to love what’s between the covers.
The official wrap-up from Sarasota Film Festival, written by the talented SRQ editorial team (Jacob Ogles, Phil Lederer and Shane Donglasan) is the ultimate recap of the films, parties and events surrounding one of our city’s greatest festivals to date. You’ll want to drop everything and spend the afternoon planning how to spend the upcoming weeks once you read the “Live Summer Like the Locals.” It is packed with the best way to live local in our beautiful region, bar none. We’re talking food, beverages, events, camps for the kiddos and creative ways to beat the heat.
And of course, it wouldn’t be an issue of SRQ if there weren’t a few mouthwatering muses, right? Hold on tight – we’re introducing a donut shop on Anna Maria Island that you will be talking about for days. A local food truck that specializes in wood fired Neapolitan pizzas? Once you’ve had a bite, following the truck around town will become your summer mission. There’s also a tasty bite about the Artisan Cheese Shop on Main Street. If you’re a cheese lover, this is the closest place to heaven west of Tamiami Trail and beyond. And the fact that each of these great companies call the Suncoast home makes us beam with pride.
The June issue of SRQ is on newsstands now! Be sure to pick one up, or visit our website to subscribe and never miss an issue.
Happy summer. And happy reading!
The SRQ Team
