Trombone Shorty, Taste of Manatee and plenty of plays make for awesome, cool weekend

Sunny with a few clouds.


Highs in the upper 60s.

Time to grab that favorite light jacket or hoodie and embrace this first cool weekend of the year.

I highly recommend spending Saturday at the Sarasota Blues Festival where New Orleans native Trombone Shorty, who plays here before heading on tour with the Dave Matthews Band, should blow you away with his "supafunkrock." Click for my interview with Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews.

Before heading to the Blues Fest, and probably Sunday, too, I'll hit up Taste of Manatee and stuff my face with local cuisine.

And starting this week I'll be attending plays at Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota and American Stage in St. Pete — if only so I can wear my favorite sportcoat!
