Tampa Bay Events January 4, and January 5, 2020
It’s absolutely mad that we’re already out of the 20-teens and into the 2020s. With the new year and the new decade come plenty of opportunities to reflect, reassess and scope out some crucial changes to be made for the next periods of your life.
While many will take this opportunity to lament the lack of progress in achievable areas, we always recommend focusing on the positive instead. If you’re in Tampa Bay, you spent a year either dwelling in or moving to the best place in the world.
If any of your resolutions were centered on more time out in the community, we’ve got just the thing. Check out these great events happening this weekend!

If your resolution was to allow yourself to enjoy decadence…

This five-dollar breakfast special promises all-you-can-eat pancakes which we’re sure means all-you-want-to-eat pancakes, rather than the horrifying alternative. Still, it’s a great way to kick off the New Year with some self-love and self-appreciation in the form of a heaping mound of fluffy goodness from one of our favorite breakfast/brunch locations in St. Pete.
If your resolution was to be more active and centered…
