|Reserve a Table at Masa - Opens in Mercato|
Mercato - The upscale restaurant for contemporary Mexican cuisine is destined to be the talk of the town, a bright spot for a North Naples development known for its radiant destinations
"The menu at Masa will be complex and innovative, yet remain true to Mexican cuisine," Mueller was quoted in a news release to launch the eatery. "Much of what passes as ‘Mexican’ in the U.S. is actually Tex-Mex and would be unrecognizable in Mexico. Our goal with Masa is to create authentically delicious Mexican cuisine."
|Thousands stop by to shop at new Publix in Naples Plaza|
NAPLES — Thousands of shoppers swamped the new Publix on Thursday for its grand reopening in the Naples Plaza, across from Coastland Center mall.
"This is the first of this prototype to open in Southwest Florida," Publix spokeswoman Shannon Patten said. "This entire concept is an open environment that allows our customers to explore an area of specialty foods and services all under one roof."
|Jump on Express to move customers between downtown Naples, Mercato for free MERCATO, 5TH AVENUE SOUTH/THIRD STREET SOUTH - There's an unspoken rivalry over customers between downtown Naples businesses and those in Mercato — and a new transportation service hopes to fix that.|
Starting today, two buses will take riders between Mercato, Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South free of charge. Jump On Express (JOE), the brainchild of North Naples resident Shannon Livingston, will be paid for by businesses who flash their ads on TVs inside the buses.
The service is expected to circulate customers who would have otherwise stayed put.
Each special-themed weekend, beginning Nov. 23 through Dec. 9, will be a fun-filled extravaganza of sight and sound, set against the backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico and evening sunsets.
During the event weekends, visitors will enjoy everything from decorated golf cart and lighted boat parades to Junkanoo and fire dancers, live music and even a Marching Mullet Parade.
All three weekends of events take place in Captiva’s "village" center, where its colorful restaurants and shops will be festively decorated

($25 Value) for a Two-Hour Trolley Tour of Naples
Patrons hop onto vintage-style trolleys for a narrated tour of Naples’s sights and scenery. Guides keep things lively with jokes and interesting facts while the tour covers a two-hour loop. Patrons get on and off wherever they'd like to get a closer look at their favorite sights before flagging down the next trolley at any of the 23 stops on the route.
The doors of a vintage-inspired trolley fold open, inviting guests to recline in one of the padded seats for a windows-eye view of Naples.
During a two-hour sightseeing tour that skirts along the coast, the driver contributes to mental history books with interesting facts, anecdotes, and humorous stories, bringing to life the one hundred points of interest on the tour’s route.
Hop-on, hop-off access lets guests jump off as many times as they'd like at any of the 23 stops if a site strikes their fancy or if a fire hydrant starts spraying ice cream.
Patrons can then reboard when a trolley returns one hour later. The trolleys are also available for charter services, wedding parties, or office outings that want to get a look at Naples's most attractive highlights and ugliest construction zones.
