Greetings, I hope 2013 has treated everyone well so far. I have once again been very busy as there are lot of beer related things going on in Fort Myers. The Firestone – Grille, Bar & Sky Lounge has recently opened up. This high-end restaurant, bar and nightclub is worth a trip downtown alone. The Firestone is an experience in and of itself. It boasts a rooftop bar and an absolutely stunning view of the Caloosahatchee River. There is also a night club on the third floor and a gourmet restaurant on the street level. The Firestone is by no means the only great nightlife option downtown. Places such as Ford’s Garage, Hideaway Sports Bar, City Tavern, The Morgan House, The World Famous Cigar Bar, United Cafe, Twisted Vine Bistro, The Indigo Room, Cowboy Up Saloon and many others offer diverse and exciting entertainment options. If you have not been here recently, it is time to give downtown another shot. If the new riverside park, restaurants and bars are not enough reason for you to visit downtown, tonight is the Fort Myers Bike Night. First Street will be closed to everything but bikes, there will be vendors, live music and most importantly gratuitous amounts of beer! Check it out!
