2 Tacos & Tequila’s Trio Bandito flight
One of our favorite Tex-Mex spots, Tacos & Tequila, recently opened a new North Naples location at The Pavilion. Previously, Ubering all the way home from their Davis Boulevard location was questionably pricey. Now, we’re free to try the Trio Bandito, a flight of three tacos paired with three shots of featured tequila for $29. So, yep, we’ll be doing that.
3 Weekend in Key West
Need a little getaway? Hop aboard the Key West Express and head south, where there’s plenty going on all month. Like what, you ask? During the first weekend of August, bartenders from local watering holes compete for top honors at the charitable Battle of the Bars. The following weekend, kick off the start of Florida’s lobster season at Lobsterfest. And, hello, what better way to explore the southernmost point of the US than a scavenger hunt with friends? Here are more great ideas, too.

5 Overcast app
We’ve been on a podcast kick lately (The Growth Show and Coffee Break French are two favorites). The downside? Downloading them takes up tons of space on your phone. Enter Overcast, which uses a cloud service to access podcasts so they don’t take up valuable memory typically reserved for photos of your pets doing cute things. Problem solved.
See five things we tried in February, March, April, May, June and July 2016, too!
