There’s always plenty to do in Sarasota, especially on a Saturday night … which you just happen to have free. Choose from one of too many wonderful restaurants to mention. Whatever your crave, Sarasota has it! Zagats will help you find it. https://www.zagat.com/c/tampa-fl/sarasota-restaurants
St. Armonds Circle is a favorite dining and shopping spot for locals and visitors with outdoor dining and and a very sophisticated tropical ambiance. Tommy Bahama’s Tropical Café (http://www.tommybahama.com/TBG/Stores_Restaurants/Sarasota.jsp) and The Columbia (http://www.columbiarestaurant.com/sarasota.asp) are two very popular restaurants. Reservations are suggested.
Marina Jacks (http://www.marinajacks.com) is not only a marina but a destination dining experience. There’s a free concierge shuttle service. Just speak to the Hyatt’s concierge … or just walk.
If you’re still in town on Sunday, and you really want to go native, consider a drum circle at Sarasota’s beautiful Siesta Key Beach, consistently rated one of the best beaches in the worlds. The community drum circle at Siesta Key Beach plays every Sunday in Sarasota, about 1 hour before sunset, just south of the main pavilion between lifeguard stands 3 and 4 on Siesta Public Beach. Just follow your ears. This is not a commercial event; it’s a local phenomenon that began spontaneously and now has a life of its own.
