Love is in the Air… My Wednesday night food tour in downtown Sarasota brought me William and Marla. William had planned the entire evening for their 20th Wedding Anniversary! He chose a Private Tour just for the two of them and included Drink Packages.Both born and raised in Sarasota, they grew up very near each other, went to school together, knew the same people, but never met until college. Although they did mention a “kiss” in 6th grade. This couple is the real deal. Married 20 years and still very much in love, as you can see from the photos.

Our first stop was a Bourbon and Taco Joint where they enjoyed chips, salsa and amazing tacos. They are also Bourbon aficionados and loved the Make Your Own Old Fashions on the menu featuring a favorite Bourbon. Presented with an order of Churros for their Anniversary, they pronounced the first stop a SUCCESS; we forged ahead.

Next stop was at a Fine Italian restaurant where fresh bread and olive oil was offered followed by Chef’s Choice Agnolotti stuffed with ricotta. A Tiramisu dessert was served with a flourish in honor of their Anniversary. We followed this with a visit to Thailand, tasting curry, pad Thai and sushi.

Dessert wowed everyone! Known for the Coconut Cake, this stop proved to be Magical. Just as dessert and champagne was served, William and Marla’s First Dance Wedding Song played. They were at the right place at the right time. On a Private Key Culinary Tour. To create your own “Love is in the Air” style tour, call us at 941-893-4664.

Let’s Say I Do…

Less than 24 hours after saying “I Do”, Gary and Linda were on a Key Culinary Food Tour with the Mother of the Bride. This couple have known each other for years but rediscovered their love for one another. Having chosen a beach in Sarasota sight unseen, they became Newlyweds with family and friends in attendance. While the younger kids headed to the beach, they were in search of great food and boy did they find it. Being Bourbon Lovers made the first stop a real treat. Chips, salsa and tacos rounded out the visit. Lobster Ravioli took honors next with Thai Food coming in a close second. This couple have known each other for years but rediscovered their love for one another. They spent the end of the evening at a secret local spot, having cocktails. For more information about creating your own “Let’s Say I Do” style tour, contact us at 941-893-4664.
