June is upon us, meaning that it's time for Sharky's on the Pier's Summer Fun Festivities to begin. With diverse options like Trivia Night, Kid's Night, "Chef on Deck" lobster boil and Sharky's ever-celebrated calendar of live music, there are activities and entertainment for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
Feel like engaging in a little competition? Put all of that extra knowledge to good use by recruiting a winning team for Trivia Night. Play to not only win prizes, but bragging rights! Kicking off on Tuesday, June 4th, the event will be hosted weekly on Tuesdays beginning at 7 p.m.
Bring the kids down to Sharky's on Wednesday nights for Kid's Night, beginning Wednesday, June 5th. Start the evening off with a jog on Brohard Beach with Sarasota County's 2019 series of Kids Summer Beach Runs. Registration opens at the Venice Fishing Pier for the Beach Run at 5:30 p.m. and the race begins at 6:30 p.m. Then, stick around for more family fun including Crab Races, Face Painting and prizes.
In the mood for some lobster? Take in fantastic Gulf of Mexico views while devouring a lobster pot for two at Sharky's "Chef on Deck" event. Beginning Thursday, June 13th, the event will be hosted weekly on Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. throughout the summer months.
The meal consists of 1 1/4 lbs. of a whole Maine lobster, 1 1/4 lbs. of snow crab legs, six pieces each of clams, mussels and shrimp and two vegetable bags, which include corn, green beans, carrots and new boiled potatoes.
You can spin the "Wheel O' Lobster" and take a chance at winning a percentage off of your price of a five lb. lobster dinner. Discounts range from complimentary to market price. However, there is only one dinner prepared each week, so please call the restaurant and RSVP if you are planning on ordering it.
Sharky's calendar of live music will continue to rock all summer long and feature fan favorites like David Moore, Lisa Ridings Band, Endless Vibes and Trinidudes. Bands play on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight. Visit Sharky's website to view the full calendar.
Last but not least, Sharky's will be hosting Happy Hour daily from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Come out and cool down with $3 glasses of wine, beer and more while soaking up the sun and watching the Gulf waves.
