I spent the afternoon at Sumter Landing today promoting Villager Eats. I met a group of men sitting by the lake who are proud Veterans. They told me that the American Legion here in The Villages is the largest American Legion in the United States. It was mentioned to me how supportive the Suleiman family are to the Veterans. Their kindness and support is greatly appreciated. GOD bless each and every Veteran for risking their lives to keep ours safe.

City Fire in Sumter Landing and Brownwood will soon have a new sign hanging on their wall outside in their patio area. Can you guess what it is? VILLAGEREATS.COM – Dining and Happy Hours in The Villages. Let me know when you see it.

Yummy Mussels, something you can’t live without. We just had to check out Friday’s special at City Fire. These yummy mussels were served in a tomato basil sauce with crusted bread. The mussels were fresh and the sauce was out of this world. Shannon was our server which made our meal even more enjoyable. She even noticed that my husband was giving me cherries from his drink and she asked me if I needed cherries in my drink. Since I’m all about finding out the happy hour specials to post on this website, she spent time writing down all the information that I needed. It is amazing how cheerful she was when we all know how difficult it has been for the restaurant industry. Don’t forget to tell your restaurant that you saw them on villagereats.com. Check us out on facebook and twitter.

City Fire

Stopped by City Fire yesterday for a cold drink at the bar after walking around the square. The staff were super friendly. Jenny, the bartender instantly becomes your best friend and has worked there 12 years. They have a fabulous hands on owner who suggested I hang a sign behind the bar. COMING SOON……VILLAGEREATS.COM sign behind the bar. I know I will be sitting there more often just so I can see my sign. Isn’t The Villages great!

Lighthouse Point

I had lunch with a friend yesterday at Lighthouse Point in Sumter Landing. I had fried fish for $5.99 and my friend had popcorn shrimp for $7.99. Both meals were delicious. Plus we received 20% off for being nurses. We sat in the shade on the deck overlooking the water. What a relaxing lunch.

Eating Out!

Does anyone remember reading Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus a book written by American author and relationship counselor¬†John Gray? It helped me to understand why food is so important to men. My husband and I have had this debate for years. It is typical for him to ask me what we are having for dinner the tomorrow night when we haven’t even finished tonight’s meal. He thinks it is very ironic that we have created a website that is all about “what’s for dinner”. He is all about eating and I’m all about saving money so Villager Eats has been a blessing for both of us.

So tonight we ate out for Taco Tuesday. The best deal we have found so far is at Beef O’Brady’s. Two tacos of your choice with chips and salsa for $5.99. I had the chicken and he had the fish. They were both delicious. We also enjoyed two for one tall Margaritas for $8. Along with are meal we received a free appetizer for loading their app on our phone. Beef O’Brady’s have specials every day and happy hour is 2 for 1 all day. Check them out on our website.


Don’t forget to tell your friends about villagereats.com. Look at the daily specials and pick your restaurant. When you visit the restaurant, tell them that you viewed them on villagereats.com.
