OCT. 17-20, 2019
THURSDAY | Make dinner reservations on Third Street South (we recommend Ridgway Bar & Grill), then stop by Fleischmann Courtyard from 5-8 p.m. to enjoy free live music by Flashback during this month’s Third Thursday on Third.
THURSDAY-FRIDAY | It doesn’t happen often, but one of our favorite home design stores, Patina Collection, is having a Warehouse Sale as they prepare to move to their new location off of Third Street South. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their warehouse (441 10th St. N., Naples), score 50-60 percent off amazing Patina finds, from artisanal ceramics to cultivated heirlooms, crystal chandeliers to artfully placed accents.
FRIDAY | Celebrate Oktoberfest at The Bevy with two-for-one draft beers all day.
FRIDAY | Shula’s hosts its second annual Monster Bash, and word to the wise: This isn’t the party to scrimp on costumes. (People go alllll out.) There’s a costume contest with prizes, a live DJ and a photo booth from 6-10 p.m., and your $75 ticket (available online) includes a complimentary cocktail and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Proceeds benefit the Naples Art Association and Marco Island Center for the Arts.

Tickets are available online.
NEXT WEEK | We love The Sand Barre for their super-fun, high-energy Bounce trampoline fitness classes. Whether you already love it, too, or you haven’t tried it yet, Tuesday (Oct. 22) is the time: They’re hosting Bounce for Boobies, an all-day bounce-a-thon, with 100 percent of proceeds going to Bosom Buddies, a local organization that provides financial assistance for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer patients who are uninsured or under-insured. Classes will happen all day from 5:30 a.m. to 6:15 p.m.; the cost is $25 per person for each 30-minute instructor-led class, and each bouncer also receives a T-shirt. Sign up online here.
