ICYMI: A Bite-Sized Roundup Of Tampa Bay Happenings This Week

Intermezzo St. PeteBeen busy? Grab a coffee and have a quick scan through our bite-sized round-up of happenings near our hubs in Tampa Bay this week.

St. Pete’s first Bicycle Friendly business, Black Crow Coffee, has teamed up with Sunscreen Film Society and Cinema Squatch to show the season two premiere of Stranger Things during a one-off Halloween-themed market on October 27. Your $25 ticket will get you free beer, retro snacks (Eggo anyone?) and entry into the upside down costume contest. There will be plenty of craft vendors on-site, too, selling Stranger Things inspired merchandise. You can register for the event here.

Creative Loafing has opened voting for its Best of the Bay Awards. St. Pete Chamber, meanwhile, is accepting votes for its Good ‘Burger Awards. If you want to vote us for People’s Choice, we’re cool with that.

Intermezzo, the specialty coffee shop and cocktail bar in the Edge District of St. Pete, has introduced a new pop-up restaurant, where guests can enjoy light bites at the bar. You can read more about Tramezzino on I Love the Burg.

The City of St. Petersburg’s Police Department is looking to commission artists for its Public Art Program.

The Tampa Bay Lightning is also on the hunt for local artists for its Sixth Annual Open Call to Artists exhibition at the AMALIE Arena.

Red Mesa St. PeteDowntown St. Pete’s Red Mesa announced it will launch a new events venue in the fall, featuring 3,500 square foot of indoor space and 1,100 square foot of outdoor space. We never tire of rooftop bars, so news of Red Mesa’s DeSanto, located in the space formerly known as Push Lounge, has our interest piqued. Sushi and small batch tequila and whisky? We’ll be there. You’ll find more information here.

Local favorite Cycle Brewing was named one of the top 25 craft breweries in America by Gear Patrol.

Wallet Hub ranked Tampa as one of the 15 best US cities for urban lifestyle. (We already knew this about Tampa, but it’s nice to be recognized officially.)
