Briefs: Corey Avenue merchants offer holiday sampling


Corey Avenue merchants offer holiday sampling

Corey Merchants will be all "decked out" for the holidays as they host the "Corey Lights Up" wine and food tasting from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday. Stroll the avenue while listening to Felix "Nat King Cole" Peyton sing holiday favorites. Sample wines and food inside the stores for a good old-fashioned holiday (without the ice and snow). Merchants will offer sales and discounts throughout the day.

The event, sponsored by the Corey Avenue Merchants, is also trying to help needy families by asking shoppers to bring a canned good, nonperishable food item or personal hygiene item. Drop boxes will be at several merchants on Corey Avenue or at Lemuria Books & Gifts, 350 Corey Ave. For more information, call 366-2003.


Golf cart opens up game to disabled

The city's Mangrove Bay and Cypress Links Golf Courses, 875 62nd Ave. NE, now offer a new golf cart for persons with disabilities. The single-rider golf cart allows a wheelchair user or golfer with mobility limitations to play a round of golf directly from the cart, using a swivel type seat. The single-rider cart was provided through funds from the city's Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments.

Regular golf cart rental fees will be charged for the new single-rider golf cart. Golfers can reserve the new accessible golf cart up to seven days in advance by calling the Mangrove Bay Golf Course Pro Shop at 893-7800.
