Hob Nob with Us at Dolphin Aviation and See the New Grady-White Freedom 255!

Come out on Thursday night to mingle with Cannons Marina and other local businesses at the Economic Development Corporation’s 25th Annual Hob Nob Bar-B-Que!   This event has always been a blast, but this year it will be even more fun because we will be there showing off the new Grady-White Freedom 255 and serving up the ultimate boat snack.  Captain Mike Adams from Cannons says, “Our spot is right next to the beer tent, so when people are in line for their beer, they can take a look at the Grady-White and get some chips and salsa from us to go with their beer.”  22 other businesses will be grilling up some tasty cuisine that is yours for the eating.  “Most of the businesses have been doing this for years,” says Captain Mike. “The businesses form grill teams and they take this cook-off really seriously. Each team usually has a signature dish. You’ll see everything from chicken tacos to margaritas. It’s a lot of fun!”
Not only is there plenty of food to chow down on, there’s also great entertainment.  Music will be by 106.5 CTQ radio personalities Mav & Lulu in the Morning, plus live music by country artist Matthew Huff.
The Hob Nob Bar-B-Que takes place on Thursday, February 28th from 5:30 – 9pm at the Dolphin Aviation, located at 8191 N. Tamiami Trail near Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.  Tickets are $75. You can register online or contact Cindy Unzicker at or 941-748-4842, ext. 126.
The EDC helps recruit businesses to relocate to the Manatee County area to provide high-paying jobs for area residents.  This is our first time at the event, so come out, help support a great cause and have some fun!
