Tarpon Bend Notches 14 Years This Saturday With Anniversary Party

Any day is an excuse to party, but anniversary parties are something special. This Saturday night Tarpon Bend Food and Tackle is celebrating 14 years and with the Catalina Wine Mixer anniversary party to boot.

But that is not all, of course. Jared Michael Hobgood from Irish Kevin's in Key West will be putting down some music to go along with the festivities. The party starts at 7 p.m., but everyone is welcome to come hang out before it all goes down and have a drink or snag some fresh catch of the day.

So how does a place like this stay open for so long? More than likely, it's because of the savvy minds behind the restaurant.

The Restaurant People have a reputation for making bold moves on the dining front for several years, building up places like YOLO, Vibe, S3 and now a new place at 1301 E. Las Olas Blvd. that will be slinging meatballs, the former location of M Bar.

The daily seafood specials and vast wine menu might also have something to do with their longevity. Lunch at this place is on point. A fresh, grilled catch of the day and two levels of seating can't all be wrong.

It's the Catalina Wine Mixer, bitch, but without fancy helicopters or John C. Reilly yelling "Boats and hoes!" into the mic. Make your way over to Himmarshee Village Saturday night to see what the fuss is all about.
