Here are the top five stories in Dunedin today:

  1. The growing popularity of pickleball leaves tennis players in Dunedin with fewer courts to play on and creates friction among residents. It got so bad that Iocals asked city commissioners on January 4 to build more courts to avoid animosity between tennis and pickleball players, who share some of the city’s courts. Although the dual purpose courts are temporary, this has led to overcrowding and frustration among players who have been using the courts for years. The Department of Parks and Recreation’s long-term plan is to build separate pickleball courts, but it doesn’t seem like it’s soon enough. His consider pushing the project so that construction begins sooner and the conflict is resolved sooner. (Tampa Bay Newspapers)
  2. If you’re looking to get a real Philly cheesesteak in Tampa Bay, you have to go to Delco’s in Dunedin. Owners Cindi Bowers and Ed Crowley brought the taste of Philadelphia to our small town by shipping everything that put cheesesteaks on the map. Delco’s brings customers back to Philadelphia in several ways, as the walls are lined with sports memorabilia from the Phillies, Flyers, 76ers and Eagles. (ABC Stock News)
  3. A new barbecue restaurant in Safety Harbor is attracting the attention of locals for its unique and tasty dishes. The Brinehouse, which is the sister location of the Dunedin Smokehouse, is currently open for dinner all week and lunch on weekends. Menu highlights include charred cauliflower florets, bourbon and maple cured chicken wings, green goddess potato salad, Angus beef tri-tip steak and Duroc pork tenderloin. Appetizers come with two sides, so make sure you’re hungry! (Room)

Doing a “Dry January” or just looking for a tasty alternative to the usual cocktails? Here is a suggestion: try a soft drink from our partners at Betera. Created by an award-winning chef using natural botanicals, Betera’s drinks come in 3 flavors: ginger-orange, elderflower-lime, and rhubarb-hibiscus. OWe tried Ginger-Orange, and it was excellent — slightly effervescent, floral with a hint of bitterness and the sipability of a cocktail.

Betera is offering Daily readers a 15% discount on their first order: use PATCH15 at checkout. Highly recommended – you can try Betara here.
