We’re here with updates to our posts from last year’s race:  Rev3 Venice, FL – Food & Fun, Places to Eat and Things To Do.  Most of the items are still current, but I’ve given you those that aren’t and a couple of new events to check out.  Hopefully, this helps you have a good idea of what you want to do and where to eat while you’re in town for the Rev3 race.

  • Rev3 has added a Kid’s Triathlon to their schedule this year.  It will take place early Saturday morning, Nov. 8 for kids ages 6 -14.  You can register on-line and find out more information.
  • The Sea Venice Dolphin & Sea Turtle statues around town have been taken down and auctioned off.
  • The Full Monty and Late Nite Catechism will be playing at the Venice Theater.
  • Pineapple’s Island Grill has now changed to Classics Steakhouse and Nightclub as of 10/1/14.  They still have an outdoor area and Tiki Bar, plus live music for dancing.
  • Luna Pizza & Ristorante is still open even though the link to the restaurant doesn’t!  Their phone is 941-412-9898.
  • I couldn’t find any concerts going on at Centennial Park.
  • There’s a Venice Farmer’s Market downtown on Saturday morning, Nov. 8.
  • There is a Sarasota Chalk Festival going on from Nov. 10 – 17 in Venice this year.  This is a festival for street painters – and they literally do art work on the streets – but the public is encouraged to participate.  There is also music, dance, food, and drink and it’s for all ages.
  • If you are staying even longer, the Venice Blues Festival takes place on Nov. 15 with some great entertainment.

Have a great race all you triathletes and enjoy the day and beach all you trisupporters and be sure to say hi to our great friend and Rev3 Venice volunteer, Bobbie...
