JC’s Tin Cup Restaurant

Think upscale sports bar restaurant.  The Tin Cup is located in the Country Club of Sebring located at 4800 Haw Branch Road.  Not easy to find if you don’t have a native guide or a decent GPS, but its right off Hammock Blvd.  The restaurant is in the same building as the sales office, which…

Cowpoke’s Watering Hole

My thoughts on the Cowpoke Watering Hole…best restaurant in Highlands County.  Every dish is made to your liking and is beyond wonderful.  If you like pork, try the pork osso bucco, if fish is what you want, their salmon is outstanding, chicken is perfect every time; and let’s not forget the beef.  Best prime rib…

Hurray for the Red White, and Blue!  If there is a retirement community anywhere in Florida with more rah-rah patriotic spirit than Tanglewood I do not know where it is.  Be proud! The traditional Golf Cart Parade will start out from the Clubhouse at 9 AM.  Veterans – we want you up front. As you…

Minstrels Cancel Show

The Tanglewood Minstrels have regretfully cancelled their scheduled March 14 concert.  A combination of family obligations, extreme busyness, and the nasty crud that everyone seems to have now is the culprit.   Watch for them to return in the fall and winter season with another wonderful musical production.
