2020.06.13 22:03 autotldr [FL] Downtown St. Pete bars close after employees test positive for COVID-19
The same day Florida broke its record for a single-day spike of new cases of coronavirus, three downtown St. Petersburg bars closed back down after employees tested positive for COVID-19.
On Friday, June 12, the Galley, Park & Rec DTSP, and the Avenue Eat + Drink let customers know via Facebook the bars were shutting down temporarily after at least one employee tested positive.
The Galley's owner, Pete Boland said the bar was closing "Out of an abundance of caution," after a few of the bar's employees testing positive for COVID-19.
"We will re-open when we are able to test all of our employees, not just those whom have experienced symptoms of the Novel Coronavirus," Boland said.
In a statement from owner Stephen Schrutt, both Park & Rec DTSP and the Avenue Eat + Drink said it will be temporarily closed and all employees would be tested for COVID-10.
"All restaurants, bars in St. Pete that have had an employee test positive should follow the lead of these places. Shut down, allow for contact tracing, test all employees, and reopen when safe. Residents must also do what is necessary to keep St. Pete safe," the mayor wrote in a Tweet Saturday morning.

I’m Shannon C.
A DJ, Entrepreneur, Radio Personality, and Business Owner dedicated to inspiring happiness and healing through music.
A Born and Raised Florida Girl with a Passion, a Laptop and a dream, I am honored to work in an industry where I can help people to experience joy, nostalgia, and escape through music. Through digital DJ services, customized performances, thoughtful song selection, and community education, I help people like you experience the joy of music when attending a DJ Shannon C event.
A Question that I’m Frequently Asked is
“How Did You Get Started as a Dj?”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been completely in love with music. My grandmother started me on the piano at 5, and by 7 I could sit down and play songs I would hear on the radio. My musical ear was always very strong. I always gravitated to musical instruments, so it was no surprise that by age 12, I was the lead flutist in my middle school orchestra, and by 16, a lead trombonist in our high school symphony and jazz ensembles. I’ve always gravitated to drums and percussive instruments, experimenting with side rock and ska projects in high school. I also wrote musical arrangements for our 100 piece high school marching band.
Like I said, I was IN LOVE with Music.
I was also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: teaching, psychology, entrepreneurship, creativity, dance, spirituality, fitness and philanthropy, just to name a few. I came to Tampa in 2002 to attend University of South Florida for Performing Arts and Dance. (I took a long break from music in my early 20’s as I was cultivating other interests and pursuing a corporate career.)
After USF, I hopped around between jobs, aggressively climbing the corporate ladder in a Training and Project Management capacity. I’ve trained for major companies including Medicare, Capital One, and JP Morgan Chase. And while I was very good at my job, a large part of me was very unfulfilled.
Then in 2013, everything changed…
I had been hosting Bar Trivia as a side job to allow me a sense of creativity. I was back in school studying Adult Education, and I was heavily pursuing a corporate career. Everything changed because I sustained several injuries to my body and my brain. Everything changed because I could no longer work a corporate job as I had to be in physical therapy 5 days a week. Everything changed because I was in a position where I had to completely rebuild my life.
On March 1st I was rear ended by a Semi Truck while stopped at a stoplight. And everything changed.
Which brings me to Djing…
The brain injury that I sustained impacted my motor functions. One day I sat down at my piano, which had also been an emotional outlet for me, and I couldn’t play. My fingers wouldn’t move to the keys liked they’d been trained for years before. This through me into a deep depression. In an attempt to help me feel better, my then boyfriend showed me some basics of Djing and put a mixtrack pro with virtual DJ in front of me. My DJ journey begins here.
I spent the next several months of my physical recovery learning about Djing, beat matching, using different software, different hardware, mixing different genres of music, etc. I dove in to the deepend, and it really helped me to progress through my injuries and depression.
In July 2013, a friend booked me to play for her sister’s wedding, and shortly after, a neighbor who often heard me practicing, booked me to play weekly at his venue at International Plaza. I also began networking and working under different mentor djs as I progressed into my DJ career. In late 2014 I produced and hosted my first Art and Music showcase to benefit The Tampa Crisis Center, and , I aligned with Scratch Events, an agency in New York City, who began booking me for corporate and fashion brands.
In 2015 I began working in nightlife, serving the LGBT community in both Ybor City, and St Petersburg, FL. I also did my first guest set with Jose Da Magician at Art After Dark in South Tampa, and I aligned myself with Trinity Cafe to play music for the homeless on the Holidays.
In 2016, I took on my first Out of State gig at the Georgia World Congress Center for the SalesForce connections tour. I began doing guest spots with other local djs including DJ Qeys and DJ Knox at Crowbar for Takeover Tuesdays, and DJ D2 at Top Golf. I did fashion work for Millenia Fashion with With Mall at Millenia and Rapid 3D Print for their 3D Print Fashion Show. I also began teaching DJ lessons to local teens.
In 2017, I was invited into my first DJ crew, affectionately gaining the title of the First Woman of the Sinister Syndicate. I also began working for 99 Jamz FM, the Berg with a Weekly Segment called Ladies Take Over Thursdays on the Big Show.
In 2018, I’m excited to launch my second company, Digital DJ Youth Academy, which offers one to many classes for youth at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The classes allow students exposure to DJ culture and music while integrating core skills for each age group including leadership, team building, creativity, individual expression, tolerance and celebration of differences, as well as reinforcing familiarity with numbers and language. My goal is to get kids turned on to music early and show them a path for creating a hobby or even a profitable career in music. I want to use music to help my youth reach their fullest potential both in Djing and in life.

2019.04.08 19:33 smithjanesmith budget breakdown st.pete, fl wedding 2/9
I love reading the budget breakdown posts, so I'd thought I'd do one now the the dust has settled. (Pictures at the bottom of the post)submitted by smithjanesmith to weddingplanning [link] [comments]
Total Cost $15k
Guest Count 45
Location St. Petersburg, Florida
Ceremony Venue $110
We used a local park and got a permit
Luckily our friends got married a year before us and we decided we liked their officiant, so we booked him for ourselves and got a referral discount
Ceremony Chair Rentals $245
We didn’t need much for the ceremony because the park is small and had pavers that were really cute, so we just rented some simple white folding chairs
I wouldn’t do real flowers looking back on it now. But, I got 6 bunches of ceremony flowers with rented columns for them to sit on, 1 bridal and 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 4 boutonnieres, 1 small cake topper. I also gave my flowers to someone else having a wedding the next day so they didn’t go to waste.
Reception Venue $3,900 (includes drinks and food and tips)
I really wanted to go for a “big family dinner” vibe instead of the wedding vibe and so we picked a local restaurant (that we loved and go to often) that had this perfect underground lounge that had a great 20’s vibe (it was built in 1922) and they only charged a $50 fee for the room and had a $2,500 food/beverage minimum which was easy to hit. We did an open bar (no liquor) and a buffet.
My photographer was the first person I hired and was one of my favorite vendors. I found her on a Facebook group and she is seriously talented.
By far the greatest value out of all my vendors - since we had a long engagement we booked a videographer early on. They ended up buying new equipment, and improved amazingly and their new packages started at $1,500 at the time of our actual wedding, so we had a great deal!
I really wanted live music - I found my one man band at a bridal expo and he was great from start to finish. Super responsive and easy to talk to, learned two songs just for us, and had a great mix between live music and DJing.
Desert $145 (plus cost of cake supplies, maybe $10)
We both love donuts and there is a place near our house where we always go, so donuts were a given for our wedding. Also, I love baking and so I made our small cutting cake.
Another amazing vendor who I couldn’t have imagined the day without, she was so helpful and drove an hour to pick up our donuts for us the day of since the donut place didn't offer delivery. I would recommend to everyone to get a day of coordinator, it was like I was a guest at my own wedding.
Hair and Makeup $120 (bride) and $450 (bridal party)
I really wanted to treat my bridal party (3 bmaids and mom, MIL, SIL) to hair and makeup, but it was really expensive. I asked for recommendations on a local FB group and that’s how I found both stylists who were really great.
Invites $210 (and bulk text messaging $25)
I ordered gold foil flat invites with postage and return labels, addressing service, and envelopes. I also really wanted some way to schedule a few texts throughout the day such as, parking is here, ceremony starts in 15, etc - I ended up using simpletexting.com and it was super easy...used it for a month then canceled my subscription.
Gold votives, battery lights, signs, printing, paint, etc
The gold votives I got from my local fb groups and Target, lights from Amazon, and everything else from local antique stores, Home Depot, Ikea, and Walmart
At this point everything cost about $10k (everything else after this was for our outfits, rings, gifts, etc which we went a little crazy on)
David's Bridal. I had a hard time nailing down the type of dress I wanted and did a bunch of shopping online. I finally found this dress and it was getting discontinued, but as soon as I put it on I knew it was perfect for me! It was twice what I budgeted but I don't regret it one bit.
Went to men's Warehouse and ordered a custom suit. We were going for something a little on theme but also something he could wear to work later as well so it wasn't fully frivolous.
Another great recommendation from a local Facebook group. She was friendly professional and quick and talented. I brought in my dress and in two weeks it was ready! Another place had quoted me over $400 for the same alterations
We also bought a tie, pocket square, and shoes for him at men's wearhouse. I bought my earrings and hair piece on Etsy and shoes on Amazon.
I picked out a palladium ring from a shop in England that was $430 and he picked a platinum ring from a friend who is a jeweler for $1,800
Parent gifts, wedding party gifts, etc
The best parts:
