Celebrate back-to-school time at Cape Harbour Marina

As the dog days of summer drag on in Southwest Florida, Fathoms Restaurant & Bar and The French Press are offering some cool ways to spend family time during the busy back-to-school season. Kids under 12 eat free at Fathoms starting at 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays. And what cooler way to end the school week than with free gelato? On Fridays throughout September from 5 – 10 p.m., buy any size cup of one of The French Press’ 24 flavors of homemade gelato, and receive a free sugar cone.

Fathoms and The French Press are closed on Mondays until the end of September, so they’ve stacked the rest of the week full of great events and specials offering something for everyone:

Die-hard foodies should reserve their spot now for a Chef’s Table dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 17. Up to 16 lucky diners will enjoy an intimate six-course dinner prepared by the French chefs of Fathoms. Cost is $85 per person, including exquisite wine pairings.
