A few great places to eat off the beaten path...
Captain Eddies...just on the Nokimis/Venice border..good prices, great food, owners usually there to greet u.
Ntinos... Italian and American, limited menu but great food, esp. the pizza
Free music at the "Venice Avenue" beach. Monday night all accoustic guitars...Amatuer but fantastic!!!
The "bad".... the "red tide' is terrible ! On the beach by the north jetty the odor fo the dead fish by the tideline is really bad. At noon today, there were more vultures feasting on seafood than people!
It's shame the city doesn't put some effort into cleaning it up
