What's Happening Central Florida


Flamingo Resort in St. Petersburg did a great job rolling out the red carpet for all its customers as they celebrated their fifth anniversary recently. I was there taking photos; you can view them by going to hotspotsmagazine.com. The next time you’ll see me out and about will be at the Metro Wild Gala at One Progress Plaza in St. Petersburg! Hope to see you there! Lots of love to you all!

If you read this column faithfully, you’ll know quite a few things about me, one of which being that I highly approve of Sawmill Resort’s Bare As You Dare nights! Accompanying the Bare As You Dare nights on Thursdays now is the Red Light Thursday Party, which includes a strip pool tournament! It all starts at 9 p.m. so be there and be bare!

WHCF-copy-1Have you had the chance to check out Garbo’s Lounge yet? I haven’t but I hope to stop by there soon. They recently hosted an equality connection for Equality Florida and I believe this is an establishment Volusia County needs! They are not only a nightclub, but they’re also a restaurant, with a $5 lunch menu Tuesday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Garbo’s Lounge is located at 2842 S. Ridgewood Avenue in South Daytona. For more information, call (386) 214-7599.
