Outside The Edison Restaurant & Bar, a circular fountain and a thriving, vibrant lawn invite diners to step up to a white-shingled edifice that looks as much like a home as a restaurant. Inside, black brick walls, black-and-white portraiture, and a finished-wood piano bespeak the eatery's elegant yet unpretentious air. Executive chef Stuart Gordon, who has spent time in the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, and Barbados, utilizes years of experience in top restaurants to craft full-flavored dishes. Six dining areas, each with their own ambiance, accommodate private meetings and parties. In the aptly named Chandelier Bar, sports fans can cheer for their team with pints in hand and charbroiled cheeseburger in mouth. And on the terrace bar, patrons can peer across to the Fort Myers Country Club and admire its flourishing palm trees and well-maintained missile defense system.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire - Fort Myers, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form using their expert eyes. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic Waltz and Foxtrot romps or swivel through the modern steps of Salsa, Swing, or Samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction and demonstrations.
The aroma of cigars hits you as you walk into the spacious humidor. Boxes line the walls, filled with everything from Ashtons to Gurkhas and Don Pepin Garcias. This humidor is the handy work of Rich Castiano, who grew up watching his father Sal enjoy a good smoke. To share his love of cigars with others, Rich established the World Famous Cigar Bar and stocked it with the finest stogies around. He even created his own special blend in honor of Sal—the 1929 Castiano, a box-pressed cigar featuring Nicaraguan filler, a Jalapa binder, and an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

For its serendipitous 13th season, Florida Rep hails the new decade with a heart-warming yet humorous yarn from Tom Dudzick, the author of Florida Rep fan favorites Greetings! and Over the Tavern. The family dramedy, King O' the Moon, revisits the topsy-turvy lives of Over the Tavern's Pazinski family, who have (mostly) survived the idealistic ’50s only to come face to face with the mutating landscape of the turbulent ’60s. Those who missed the first installment won't feel left out as they set their eye globes toward the stage to watch the pandemonium that ensues when the intractable Vietnam War and Apollo 11's famous moon landing begin to hit home in this stand-alone sequel. The production features performances from reliable Florida Rep standbys Carrie Lund as recently widowed Ellen and Mark Chambers as Walter Fronzak. The production also features newly minted players, including Jason Parrish, Adam Jones, Jacob Womack, and Claire K. Guy.
