I'd recommend the Cock and Bull Pub or The World of Beer for a nice selection of drafts. The beer scene down there is a bit lacking in general however, that'll probably be the best you'll do. They both have about 40 taps and a large list of bottles. I had a good time at Siesta Key Oyster Bar but it's busy and loud and a younger crowd so you'd have to be into that. I like to party so Siesta Key is where I'm usually hanging out. I can't help you with a vegan place. I'm a meatatarian.

I second the Siesta Key nightlife, most stuff closes early around there.

For seafood dives we went to Walt's Fish House as a recommendation from the bartender at our hotel: http://www.waltsfishmarketrestaurant.com/

There is a Sports Bar on Tamiami Trail called Harry's Sports Bar. There is a large outdoor bar area and my husband is a big craft beer guy and liked it there. I don't remember what the food was like there. http://www.srqharrys.com/

Walt's Fish Market is a seafood dive. You can eat in or carry out. They have a tiki bar while you wait if you are eating there. It's loud, but fun!

Harry's Sports Bar has a large outdoor bar and some good happy hour specials. I don't remember the craft beer selection, but I remember being happy with the options.

Up in Bradenton, there is a brewery called Motor City Brewery. We went there after a game at the Pirates stadium last year. It's walking distance and right on the main street. They had JUST opened so they didn't have food, but there was a food truck there. Not sure if they have food now or not.

Lots of stuff closes early like Yoder's.

Siesta Key is fun, but agreed that its a younger (think college age) crowd at night.

I just got tix for the first time to see the Os in Sarasota. I'll be at the March 4th and 7th games . Are there any craft beer places, seafood dives, or vegan restaurants that any hangouters could recommend. Thanks ahead of time.

My wife and I will also be there. Can't help you with the beer stuff because we don't drink. Also can't help you out with the vegan places since I like beef to much.

But would love to meet you at the games. Also, what exactly does duffaphonic mean?

JDubs Brewing Company opened right down the road from Ed Smith on 12th St. It is becoming a pretty popular destination, but still more of a local hangout not touristy. A food truck or two is usually parked there as well.

Big Top Brewing is another locally owned craft beer spot. Mandeville Beer Garden is getting ready to open up close to downtown. There is quite a bit going on downtown as well.

    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
    • Going 1 for 25 is not hard to do. I would imagine many HS Senior players could do that if given 25 at bats in the big leagues. Not saying Holliday is not worthy, just how bad going 1 for 25 is. Had someone not been on 1st, he could be 0 for 25. I would like to see him more aggressive early in the count and more protective late in the count.
