Halloween celebrations in downtown Sarasota brought the vampires out into the night. These vampires were dressed to kill in stunning clothes, elaborate makeup and hair. This event was part of the SRQ Fashion Week, sponsored in part by Whole Foods. The Pretty in Dead show was held in the Whole Foods courtyard.
Punk Rock Betty put on a sizzling fashion event at Pastimes Pub. Summer of Sin was a show of her latest alternative clothing designs. Edgy models with cutting edge styling walked the runway surrounded by a crowd of fans and photographers. Even during the summer, creative people continue to find venues for great things to do in Sarasota!
Santa and his helpers visited The Loft Ristobar last weekend to help Veronica Pastore, DJs Jimi-O and KCONN celebrate Christmas in July. You didn’t think Sarasota had summer nightlife? Take a look at the video, it may change your mind. By the time I left this huge nightclub it was packed. In addition to music and dancing, party-goers were contributing to charity since 10% of the sales all night were donated to Suncoast Charities for Children.
On any afternoon in downtown Sarasota, you may have a chance to hear a street musician or a band. On Main Street, we encountered The Cadillac Grainer Street Band with a small crowd who already knew their music. Although their lead singer was not there, they played an original song with a bluesy bluegrass flavor as the crowd on the street grew.
The band recently opened at the Blue Owl in Sarasota for local favorite, Igor.
