Come to Run, Stay to Play at the
25th annual Vilano Bridge 5k, 10K & Fun Run
Mark your calendars and lace up your sneakers for the 2022 Vilano Bridge Run on Sat., April 2 at 8:00am. Now in its 25th year, this local favorite is a perfect family event with stunning bridge views of the Intracoastal, the beaches and downtown St. Augustine. Participants in the 10K race will also continue through the Florida School for the Deaf & the Blind campus with both races finishing at the North Shore Community Park. A 1-Mile Family Fun Run immediately follows the start of the longer races.
This annual event, hosted by the North Shores Improvement Association, supports important local community improvement efforts. Once again, a portion of registration proceeds will be donated to the Florida School for the Deaf & the Blind. The last three races netted over $15,000 for FSDB- help us increase that donation this year!
Early registrants receive colorful race T-shirts with finisher medals awarded to all participants. Age group awards will be made for top finishers.
Participants and their families are encouraged to “Stay & Play” at the great after-party with music, awards, family games, prize drawings, and a 50/50 raffle. You’ll have the chance to meet rescue pets who need a forever home and enjoy exotic animals from the Alligator Farm. While runners will each receive a complimentary post-race beer, additional food and drink will be available for purchase. Register now online at www.1stPlaceSports.com
or at 1st Place Sports stores by March 13 for a guaranteed race shirt and discounted registration by March 19. Later, regular price registration will be available through April 1 with limited registration available at the start of the race on April 2.

We would like to thank everyone who voted Penman Diner best BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, & DINER for Folio Weekly's Best Of contest!
We have the best customers hands down! Thank you for the love and support! 💚
Im not all that crazy about Russia, but I do know that the Russian people have suffered as long as anyone, paid more dearly in WWII, suffered more Islamic terror bombings than anyone, and live with some of the worst weather on the planet. But this idea of NATO, to put first strike missles on Russia's border, in Ukraine, is provocative. We sure didnt tolerate it when they tried to put them in Cuba. NATO needs to stop prodding the bear. Just a few years ago, we, NATO that is, bombed Sarejavo for no goddamn good reason, capturing and triing Milankovitch and his cronies, associates, all of whom, every one, was tried and all found *not guilty* of any crimes (guess where the crimes were, then). Maybe it is time to end NATO: There's no longer a reason for it and all it has shown itself for is to create new European wars; its an organization run by bitter old men, intent on reliving the past fears and preserving their fat salaries, alarmingly much like what prevailed in Europe just prior to WWI. Put an end to NATO before they start another needless war, and maybe we can all just get along. Even the Europeans. And, it would be a good lesson to the Chinese government, too.
Whoa, thanks so much for all the love! This is the 2nd year in a row for the Blackhat crew to win Folio Weekly's Best Of, and we couldn't be happier. Stop in soon to see what's new!
