Downtown Venice, Florida is a charming picturesque community. There is the water canal, the downtown shops, a theatrical community and restaurants. A great place to stroll and enjoy a relaxing day or two; not that we did as we were constantly coming and going while we were there. We made a trip to visit some friends that were living there at the time.
At this juncture in time my Bride’s girlfriend was in love with the color of purple. Her clothes, accessories and furnishings in the house were all of this hue. So she was excited about her newest restaurant discovery for us to venture to. Naturally the restaurant was called Purple’s and she had already become a regular there, and we were just guests.
We sat out on the patio and enjoyed fresh fish of the day, but most of all I remember the good time and all of the laughing that we were doing. I also note that there were three labels from this dinner, so we must have had a wonderful time. Three bottles of wine just evaporated that evening, so you know that the evening went well. We were enjoying William Hill Chardonnay 1994 from Napa Valley. This wine was perfect with the fresh fish, but most of all it went extremely well with the conversation and the good time that went well into the evening.
