Our dear friends, Antonio and Josephine Dirende, have just moved their wonderful Italian grocery and deli, Piccolo Market, from Gulf Gate to a much larger storefront around the corner at 6518 Gateway Avenue. Good news for anyone whose idea of a Valentine’s Day meal includes a little truffle oil and parmigiano is that Ant & Josephine plan to be open for business in the new space by mid-week, well before February 14th.
In addition to Piccolo Market’s unsurpassed selection of myriad Italian groceries, we’re told that our favorite characters like “The Godfather,” “The Frank Sinatra,” and “The Tony Soprano” will again take up residence on the Piccolo Market made-to-order sandwich menu.
Trust us, you’ll find no better Italian grinders south of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Ant and Josephine are putting the finishing touches on their new digs as we write this. Let’s lift a glass of vino and wish them Salute! as we look forward to seeing them later this week.

Where did the time go? Hard to believe, but a year has passed since the 36th Annual Pineapple Antiques Show & Sale… But happily, here we are at the 37th!!!
Now held in the brighter, airier venue of the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium, tickets to the event benefit the First United Methodist Church, Sarasota, and the Rotary Club of Sarasota Sunrise. Forty dealers from all over Florida and some snowbird vendors from the north have filled the space with silver, porcelains, paintings, primitives, jewelry, linens, vintage fashion accessories, toys, and memorabilia. In short, the show offers a wide range of antiques and collectibles from the 18th through the 20th centuries.
Here are some glimpses of Friday morning at the show:
