Watermark has long had a footprint in Tampa Bay, but we recently decided to open a more permanent space in the area. It is only fitting then that for our bi-monthly Watermark Wednesday in May, we decided to host it at our brand-spanking new offices at Clear Labs in St. Petersburg. Our friends and clients turned out to mingle, enjoy the impressive new digs, feast on the delicious spread and raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, but would still like to support Big Brothers Big Sisters, they will have a Pride Bowl at Dunedin Lanes on June 9. More pictures of the fun had at Watermark Wednesday after the jump.

Find them Somebody to love, really
We love Crescendo: The Tampa Bay Women’s Chorus. So imagine our excitement when we got a chance to hear them do a surprise number not just once – but twice this month! The fabulous ladies first appeared at the start of the Metro Tampa Bay Gala when a “fight” broke out between two women, gaining the attention of the entire crowd within the Garden Club on Sept. 19. But soon, it was evident it was staged as women throughout the crowd took turns singing portions of the Queen hit “Somebody to Love.” By the time the song wrapped, the women, who had been stationed around the large room, were all together, near one end of the room belting out the mega-hit. It grabbed everyone’s attention and was a fabulous way to announce that the evening’s festivities were underway.

Just a week later at the launch party for the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, another “fight” broke out near the bar, grabbing the attention of everyone at the Tampa Museum of Art on Sept. 19. But once again, the familiar song started and the members of Crescendo appeared throughout the crowded museum, with one member belting out some impressive notes from atop the stairway. And yes, even though we had seen it a week before, the performance still surprised us, and delighted the entire room.
