Fiddler’s Creek Homeowners Enjoy Summer Activities

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Summertime in Naples lends itself to a relaxed pace in comparison to the busy seasonal months that leave us all wondering where the time went. It’s also a great time for Fiddler’s Creek homeowners to explore and re-discover Naples all over again. Fiddler’s Creek homeowners have a great summer line-up of events including dining, cooking classes, jewelry classes for the artistic, as well as movies, shopping, nature tours and casino runs.

On Tuesday mornings, Fiddler’s Creek homeowners can join the fun on the “Ride to Riches” bus trip to the Seminole Casino in Immokalee departing bright and early at 8:30am and returning at 3:15pm.

The “Dine Around” events in the summer are a hit with Fiddler’s Creek residents. A few of the restaurants residents will be exploring include Le Lafayette in the Third Street South District, M Waterfront Grille on Venetian Bay and Café Lurcat located on 5th Ave.

This summer a “Summer Cooking Class and Tasting” has been added to the mix, where Chef Eric and his team guide you through the preparations of several summertime favorites. Attendees need to bring their appetites as there will be plenty of food!

Jewelry making has become a popular art and craft with Fiddler’s Creek homeowners as they create their very own one-of-a-kind piece including a Lotus Necklaces using glass Japanese Seed beads in a variety of colors along with silver charm beads in various shapes accented with Swarovski Crystals.

Another new event this summer is the “Movie Day and Lunch at Mercato”. The first of this classic combo includes lunch at McCormick’s & Schmick’s followed by the hit movie hit “Larry Crowne” at the Silverspot Cinema at Mercato. “Crazy, Stupid, Love” starring Steve Carell and Julianne Moore will be the next movie on the list to see later in the summer.

What would the summer be without a few special nights at Caxambas? Starting with a Fiddler’s Creek homeowner favorite “Wine Tasting at Caxambas” then shortly thereafter with “Bring Your Own Wine” night. Later in the summer you can witness Fiddler’s Creek bartenders concoct an assortment of refreshing summer cocktails.

Discover the Naples Botanical Gardens with a guided tour of the Lea Asian Garden and the Scott Florida Garden and learn all about the creation, vision and design of the gardens. Shortly after the tour, lunch will be served at Bone Fish Grille.

And finally let’s not forget shopping at the Waterfront on Venetian Bay after a fabulous lunch at Bayside Seafood Grille & Bar. After a great meal, what could be better than shopping to burn off a few calories?

Before you know it, the summer is over and season arrives. The 2011-2012 Club event calendars have been completed so Fiddler’s Creek residents can begin planning for another exciting season!
