  • Crumb&Cork
    In creating a recipe for a romantic and pleasurable night out, few ingredients create the same synergy as wine, cheese, and jazz. The founders of Crumb&Cork put their spin on this formula by offering a menu with more than 28 artisanal cheeses and 40 wines from around the globe, which their patrons sip and sample amid an atmosphere permeated by live jazz music on Fridays and Saturdays. In an effort to encourage tastings, the owners sell their wines by the glass and decorate the space with comfortable furnishings so their clientele feel free to linger and chat.

  • InFocus Tampa Photo Tours
    Whether wielding a high-powered DSLR or craftily snapping shots with a smartphone, the student-tourists of InFocus Tampa Photo Tours learn how to make the most of their cameras while visiting iconic locales around the city. Groups trek across Tampa on foot, listening to guides share historical facts about sites including the Tampa Theatre, Plant Hall, and the Riverwalk. Along the way, the guide-instructor will touch on such shot-snapping topics as depth of field and the Rules of Thirds, which states that the subject of a picture should be evenly chopped into three pieces for maximum effect. Students can try out their new knowledge as they walk; eye-catching architecture, public artwork, and verdant greenery becomes the subject and backdrop of memorable photos.

  • Curtis Hixon Park
    Cirque Over The Park erupts into a glowing, community-wide celebration as the courageous aerialists and circus performers of Moving Arts of Tampa Bay prompt collective gasps from onlookers while they vault upside-down from flying trapezes and dangle fearlessly from colorful drapery. After staking their claim in the park with their lawn chairs, blankets, and bronze statues of the family dog, viewers cast their eyes skyward toward the daring acrobats and contortionists, who strike gravity-defying poses and sway back and forth on hanging hoops. While the lively troupe drops jaws, attendees can fill their conveniently open mouths with the wares of local food vendors, including offerings from 3 Suns Organic Bistro, Burger Culture, and Cupping Cakes. Live music complements the night’s astonishing visual arts, including energetic performances by Fencewalk Band, as well as Justin and Travis from The Groves. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts.
