Sharky’s on the Pier placed third in the intense Florida Beach Bar competition, and now it’s time to celebrate and thank those who voted while benefitting Mote.

Join Sharky’s on the Pier from 5 p.m. through sunset on Sunday, July 31, for the ultimate sunset beach bash. The celebration will include free drink samples, food and drink specials, and much more fun. Tropix will play live music on the beach.

Entry to the event is $5 and proceeds will be donated to Venice Area Beautification Inc. and Mote Marine Laboratory. What better way to end the weekend than smack dab on the Gulf, sand between your toes and soaking up the gorgeous sunset?

Free drink samples will be offered by wonderful vendors, including: JDub’s Brewing Company & Tap Room, Margaritaville Tequila, Cointreau Liquor, Captain Morgan, Deep Eddy Vodka, New Age Wine, Don Q and others.
