MAY 2020 MARKET UPDATE
Dear Friends & Fellow Members,
Restaurants in Martin County have re-opened and our first evening out was to celebrate Mother’s Day with friends at our favorite Italian restaurant at Casa Bella in Stuart. On Tuesday night, we met friends at TalkHouse and enjoyed another delicious dinner on their spacious outdoor patio. All servers wore masks and gloves and all tables were well spaced. On Wednesday night, we had a fantastic dinner, “Sloppy Joe Sandwiches: from the Millburn Deli in NJ – a touch of home, provided as a surprise by a wonderful friend courtesy of “Goldbelly.com”. If you have never heard of Goldbelly, look them up on your computer, you will not be disappointed. This weekend, we hope to dine at South Fork Grill in Stuart. I have been busy with clients and showings; I want the reward of a wonderful dinner cooked and more importantly, the pots and pans cleaned by someone else. Actually, I love to cook but not every night. Enough is enough!
