We are working on several issues that are synonymous with the rapid growth of the business. A few of them are:
2. Crowd Control
We have located two additional parking alternatives - the medical business complex just to the east of the Manatee Memorial hospital and the auto parts store at the corner of Manatee Avenue and 7th street. We have purchased shuttle carts to expedite bringing people on and taking people off of the property. We have also brought in a professional valet service that started Saturday evening. Both of these free services will enable us to better control the crowds and improve on the parking situation for our neighbors.
We expect to have in excess of 100 employees within the next few weeks.

I've had two enjoyable experiences at the newly opened Tarpon Pointe Grill & Tiki Bar, which sits along the Manatee River in downtown Bradenton. It's about a 20-25 minute walk from my place in Point Pleasant. I'll probably stroll by later today for a most tasty Tarpon Pointe Rita and quality music courtesy of the Venturas, which perform 6 to 10 p.m.
From my column running today:
Tarpon Pointe Grill & Tiki Bar should be a boon for downtown Bradenton.
The new destination spot features two tiki bars, tables for outdoor dining, an upstairs deck providing gorgeous views of the river and downtown, as well as sand volleyball courts and places to play the popular lawn game cornhole.
Its success could pave the way for Manatee River finally being dotted with bistros, cafes, upscale eateries and even boutiques....
So what could possibly be controversial about a family-friendly business occupying a beautiful piece of land formerly sullied by an abandoned house structure?
