Meet and Greet
Tuesday 5-7 pm – July 16, 2013
Caragiulos in Sarasota - 69 South Palm Avenue
A fine time had by all at the Meet and Greet. Thanks to Gayle Maxey and Tom Halbert for their great work in setting up these great events.


Caragiulos in Sarasota at 69 South Palm Avenue is the location of our July Meet & Greet. The happy hour venue will be the spacious bar with full cocktail, wine and beer specials. An added attraction for this event will be a Treviso martini in honor of Sister Cities of Sarasota 50th anniversary year! Caragiulos has bar, high rise and booth seating plus room to mingle in an attractive setting.

Caragiulos became one of Sarasota’s most popular eateries in much the same way the family found the cozy storefront on Palm Avenue, with… ease. From his bakery in Brooklyn, Tony Caragiulos and his five sons came to Florida in pursuit of an agreeable location to open a simple Italian restaurant. 

After an exhausting, two week long car trek around Florida with no prospects and tempers flaring, Tony signaled for the car to pull over; “Stoppa the*#!*#!!!! car!,… This is it,” he declared, pointing to the vacant stucco location… And it was.
Courtesy RSVP by June 16. This will allow Caragiulos to ensure they have sufficient bar staff for our meet & greet group. Last minute walk-ins are encouraged.
