New Port Richey

Triathletes, CoteeMan gets chaotic Sept. 12

Greater New Port Richey Main Street will host its Second Annual Chaotic CoteeMan Triathlon at 7 a.m. Sept. 12 at the new Recreation and Aquatic Complex on Van Buren Street. The event will combine a 150-yard swim in the Rec Center's pool, a 9-mile bike tour of New Port Richey, followed by a 5K run. Why call it Chaotic CoteeMan? "Well, somebody has to really love the sport and the fitness that comes with it," said Judy Debella Thomas, executive director of Greater New Port Richey Main Street. "And, let's face it, there is a certain amount of craziness that goes with that!" The entry fee is $65 through Sept. 1. Applications may be found at www.active.com. Athletes can also form relay teams, with one person doing each leg of the event. Entry fee for the relay is $85.

  1. Locale Market changes yet again, rebranding the restaurant as FarmTable Cucina

    Food & Dining

    When Locale Market opened in Sundial St. Pete in Dec. 2014, it was the most-hyped, most-anticipated gourmet market/food hall/culinary playground Tampa Bay had ever seen. Since then, celebrity chef-owner Michael Mina has done what every entrepreneur does in the face of challenges: tinker.

    Hurricanes

    Admit it. You're starting to get used to those Hurricane Irma brush piles, aren't you? They're part of the Florida landscape now, just like a stray palm frond in your yard, or the lizards scurrying across the sidewalk.
