No Southwest Florida sweetheart will be more impressed than the ones whose dates take them to picturesque waterside Gather for Valentine’s Day dinner.
Couples will start their decadent meal with a pre-selected bottle of wine and lobster bisque before moving on to a mouthwatering main course of surf and turf, plus a luscious Norman Love dessert. The music of David LeDuc will glide through the night air from 7-10 p.m. And no one’s heart will break over the bill — the price is just $60 per couple.
Your Gather experience doesn’t have to end with Valentine’s Day. Many enchanting new features are being added to the Gather story. For locals, anyone with a Cape Coral address on their driver’s license can get a free appetizer every day from 4-7 p.m. at the bar, on the new family table or in the lounge.
Plus, 4-7 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays is happy hour, running an hour later than before, so commuters can join in the fun. The same can’t-miss happy hour deals apply, with $5 apps, $5 wells, $5 craft beer and $8 house wines.
For those with a palate for chardonnay, cabernet, merlot and the like, Wednesdays are “winedays” with half-price bottles of wine from 4 p.m. until close on bottles of $50 or less. The “wineday” experience continues on the last Wednesday of the month with our monthly wine tasting from 5-6:30 p.m. Enjoy six wines and assorted cheeses for just $25.
Throw down some knowledge on Thursday night Trivia Night. A little brain stimulation warm-up begins with music at 6 p.m. followed by the full-blown fun of trivia kicking off at 6:30.
Make sure to “gather” on Friday nights as well as DJ German commands the turntable to lay down a South Beach club vibe from 8 p.m. to midnight. One Saturday a month, he’ll bring in “Mister Trombone” Wayne Perry with his smooth brand of upbeat funk, and the tribal-infused hand percussion stylings of Ryan Anthony.
Sunday fun day begins with all-you-can-drink mimosas and bloody marys at the irresistibly low price of $12 all the way from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Gather is the place to be for Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 4, even for those who want to give football the boot. Ladies drink free wells, domestic beers and pre-selected wines during the first half for “Anti Big Game” day.
Gather has quickly become popular for its inventive casual cuisine, craft cocktails and Nibbles, like the crispy duck wings with tropical fruit-chipotle glaze; Marta’s beef empanadas, charcuterie, seared octopus, spicy lime and cilantro shrimp; and cumin grilled lamb lollipop with yogurt eggplant tzatziki. Daily features and a full dinner menu are also served, including the popular lamb meatball spaghetti, the roasted porcini risotto, the smoked salmon tartine and the sous vide veal chop.
