VOTING NOW OPEN | Did you know the colors of our annual city guide's cover change every year? Until now, we've kept our cover colors top secret until the guide launches—but this year, we're inviting you to help us pick! 

Visit our link in bio to vote for your favorite combination today through April 19. May the best pair win!
DINING AL FRESCO | Tucked away in the heart of @thirdstreetsouth sits one of Naples' most romantic date night spots. This table for two at @ridgwaybarandgrill is the perfect getaway to dine al fresco in a garden setting surrounded by florals. #TSGTip: This beautiful spot is pet-friendly, too! 

@ridgwaybarandgrill is considered a local legend for the influence its had on the Naples restaurant scene. Chef Tony Ridgway opened his doors in 1971 and has since opened sister restaurant @baysidenaples with a matching standard of excellence in food and atmosphere. Be sure to stop by their wine shop next door, @tonysoffthird, for an impressive lineup of exquisite labels and to pick up a copy of Tony's cookbook, Kitchen Privileges.

APRIL EDITOR UPDATE | With Easter behind us, it's full speed ahead on the creative portion of our annual guide. Every day, we're planning, shooting, and editing the beautiful images you'll see in #TSGNaplesVol12—sometimes starting our shoot days at sunrise and ending after sunset! I can't wait to share the final product with you in November. It's truly a collaborative effort between our team and our incredible member businesses.

Season may be coming to a close, but I've still got a couple events on my calendar, and I'd love for you to join me! April 11 is our Cover Color Party, where we're inviting readers for the first time to vote for their favorite color combination for next year's cover. Guests can also get a glimpse of @thehouseofdrop's latest works and enjoy bites from @artichokeandcompany and wines from @hailstonevineyards. Be sure to purchase your tickets at our link in bio!

Also, @gcflooring_naples is hosting a Work & Play Designer Day, featuring many #Scouted women-owned businesses, on April 25. Tour their showroom and enjoy charcuterie by @_theboardhouse, a build-your-own flower bar by @floraandfaunaflower, vitamin infusions by @thevitaminbarnaples, art and clothing pop-ups by @ampuleio_art and @shopellaandjune, mini skincare treatments by @skinfirstaesthetics, headshots by @zeeannaphoto, and more! Reserve your complimentary ticket at our link in bio. 

Be sure to follow along as we Scout new and noteworthy local businesses around Naples and Marco Island! xo—Jennifer
