Gecko's in Sarasota

If you are looking for a neighborhoods sports bar in Sarasota and like yummy nachos, great pulled pork sandwiches or just a great burger smothered in delicious chili, Gecko's has it all!  Televisions are mounted on the walls and fans are always watching some event or playing Trivia.  On Wednesday nights, your server will hand you a list of trivia questions, and you can thoroughly embarrass yourself or show just how smart you really are and win $25.  Here are a few questions from last night.  Do you know the answers?  DON'T GOOGLE BEFORE ANSWERING!

How much did the Fed lower the interest rates this week?

0%  1/2@  3/4@  1%

Every year on the 4th of July, we hear the 1812 Overture - who wrote it?

Bach   Tchaicovsky     Beetoven    Mozart

Who just won Man of the Year in Time Magazine?

George Bush     Michael Phelps   Barack Obama    T. Boone Pickens 

Favorite Items on the Menu:

Potato Skins
Nachos
Chili
Buffalo Wings
Buffalo Shrimp
Gumbo

If it's game day or night for your favorite college or NFL game, make an effort to get to Gecko's early or you may not get a seat.  This is a local busy spot.  I usually see one of my neighbors, a fellow realtor or one of my close friends at the next table.  Gecko's is also a great place to pick up some extra dishes for your home tailgate parties.

Located in the Landings Shopping Center on Hwy 41, right behind the guard gated community of the Landings, Gecko's is an easy drive from several Sarasota neighborhoods.   

If you are searching for convenient location close to restaurants and downtown Sarasota, check out The Landings.  It's a great location!!

Annette - what fun!  Another insight into Sarasota.  I just love these blog entries from you.  

I like the trivia quiz idea.  A great way to encourage business and have fun at the same time!

Oh yes ... by "pick up some extra dishes" ... do you buy them?  Do they have cute logos on them?

Hi Fran, my friend and fellow realtor, Sandy Whitehead and I go to Gecko's probably one or twice a month, maybe more.  It is a fun place and great food -- by dishes, I meant, let them prepare something for you to take home.  I should have referred to takeout but wasn't thinking:  like nachos for a party.  LOL!

Hi Sean, the dart boards are still there, I'm pretty sure!  I let you know the answer to the trivia questions before the end of the year!
