We had a blast at the 2019 Best of SRQ Local TGIF Party! On Friday, April 5 the SRQ MEDIA team and 250+ foodies and local enthusiasts gathered at ALoft Sarasota to taste signature dishes and cocktails courtesy of fifteen winning restaurants from this year’s Best of SRQ Local competition.
Celebrating the best locally owned establishments in the region, every year SRQ MEDIA asks our astute readers to vote for their favorite local eats, shopping, arts, luminaries and hotspots culminating in the buzzworthy special “Best of SRQ Local” awards feature published in the April magazine. This year, to celebrate SRQ Magazine’s 20th anniversary, the Best of SRQ Local feature and TGIF party shared a 90’s theme. DJ Rus Deep kept 90’s throwbacks spinning throughout the evening giving guests the opportunity to rekindle their love for the decade of Ace of Base, Nirvana, and TLC.
A very big thank you to our awesome food and drink vendors who served up some seriously delicious tastings: Patricks 1481, OfKors Bakery, Pazzo Southside, JPan, Calusa Brewery, El Toro Bravo Restaurant, Zildjian Catering & Consulting, The Overton, Duval’s Fresh. Local. Seafood., State Street Eating House, Five-O Donuts, Mattison’s, CROP, Ophelia’s On The Bay, and Element: Modern Mediterranean Grill.
Thank you to our amazing host, ALoft Sarasota and a big thanks to Mojo Photo Booth for the fun photo ops and DJ Rus Deep for keeping the 90s soundtrack rolling during TGIF.
