One of the biggest festivals of the season in Fort Myers is coming up. ArtFest Fort Myers will bring tens of thousands of visitors to the downtown waterfront all weekend long. 

Another busy Saturday coming up: Bonita Brew Fest is at Riverside Park, and just down the road in north Naples is Naples German Fest at Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Oh, and don't forget (like you could even forget) that the Super Bowl is this Sunday. Here are a few places to watch: Timeless rolls out a special menu; Whiskey Park in Naples is hosting a tailgate party; Society in Fort Myers has huge TVs and plenty of specials; Chronic Tacos has all-you-can-eat tacos during the first half; if you're a Patriots fan, Foxboro Tavern in Naples and Lansdowne Street pub (locations in Bonita Springs and Naples) are good spots, and the SWFL Pats fan club is meeting up at the American Legion Post 38 in Fort Myers; if you're a Rams fan … well, good luck to you.
