Written by


It’s that time of the month again.…time for FIRST FRIDAY!!! SPRING is here! April 22nd is Earth Day, so our theme for this month is green, spring and new beginnings.

Back by pop­ular demand, local celeb, Nick Peterson will be tending our bar as well as man­ning our raffle. That’s right! This FF we will have a raffle drawing every thirty min­utes where Nick will do his best Vanna White to pick our winner.

This month we are part­nering with our Kennedy Blvd neighbor, Malindy Elene Bridal Cou­ture and South Tampa neighbor, the Tampa Garden Club. Spring brides and garden flowers, what could be better?

Malindy Elene is a cou­ture bridal bou­tique in South Tampa. Owner Megan Bubalo has a pas­sion for assisting brides in finding their per­fect wed­ding gown! For over 10 years, Malindy Elene Bridal has been striving to give each bride the shop­ping expe­ri­ence they have always dreamt of. Upon entering the salon, brides are greeted by a per­sonal stylist to assist with the entire bridal expe­ri­ence and in finding that per­fect dress. The bride and her entourage are treated to a glass of wine, or water while browsing through the selec­tion of pure silk, hand-​​made gowns by the finest designers bridal has to offer. In addi­tion to bridal and brides­maid cou­ture is an amazing selec­tion of rehearsal dinner or get-​​away dresses. An in-​​house tailor makes sure that every­thing has that per­fect, made for you fit.

The Tampa Garden Club (Tampa Fed­er­a­tion of Garden Clubs, Inc) was founded in 1928. TFGC also joins forces other garden cir­cles, Azalea, Bayshore, Founders, Garden Gate, Heights, Old Fash­ioned and Rose.

TFGC is also active in edu­cating the public on the impor­tance and how to con­serve our envi­ron­ment. In addi­tion to their green thumb, the TGC is a beau­tiful event loca­tion.
