ST. PETERSBURG | Food, drink and art enthusiasts gathered March 2 at the historic Coliseum for St Pete Pride’s annual Taste of Pride.
Celebrants were treated to sweet and savory samplings from nearly 20 of Tampa Bay’s favorite restaurants, breweries, catering companies. Taste participants included Dr. BBQ, Flamingo Resort, Iberian Rooster, Old Key West Bar & Grill, Orange Blossom Catering, Punky’s Bar & Grill and The Queenshead and more.
As artists Cole Foust, John Gascot and Linda Reschner shared their artwork with guests and The Cheaters provided live music, attendees were given the chance to vote for their favorite feasts in 2019’s Taste of Pride (TOP) Awards. For their chocolate fondue station, carved prime rib and more, Flamingo Resort took home the second annual TOP trophy. The St Pete Pride Community Grants Program also provided a $1,000 grant to Project No Labels, the nonprofit the resort had chosen to represent, as a part of their prize.
“A big thanks to everyone who came out to #TasteofPride,” St Pete Pride shared following the festivities. “We hope to see you again next year and make it an even bigger hit!”
