SPECIAL NOTE: If you are a Premium Member who paid their $10 yearly dues, you will automatically get added to this event in a day or two!
Join your fellow Bay Area Singles Mingle members for our best holiday party ever! The sights and sounds of Christmas time in downtown St. Pete are beyond compare. Enjoy evening cocktails and lite fare in Marchand's Bar & Grill at the Vinoy Hotel.
The outside fire pits on the patio level or sitting on the veranda enables one to view the Christmas light display in Straub Park. There is no better place to embrace yuletide spirits than the Vinoy. This is one event you don't want to miss.
Dress Code: Dress to impress!
Special Set Up: When you come to Marchand's there will be a special satellite bar in which you will have to buy your drink tickets (cash or credit). You then bring the drink ticket to the bartender and order your drink. They then ask that you tip the bartender cash.
We are doing this to speed up service as it takes a lot of time for the bartender to ring in the drinks and then run credit cards for over 200 hundred different people.
You will also order food from the bartenders off the limited menu (below) and then pay the bartender.
Website: Marchand's Bar & Grill
Parking: There is limited street parking but watch the signs for time limits. They do offer Valet for $12, unless you buy food in the restaurant and get it validated, then it's free. If you don't get there soon enough, valet will fill up.
See parking map below for area parking garages that are just a few blocks away. Uber is also a good alternative
Charity Sponsor: St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank
Last year people brought toys for the Toy's for Tot's charity. This years sponsor will be the St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank.
St. Petersburg Free Clinic is a multi-service, independent, not-for-profit human services agency providing our community neighbors assistance with food, shelter and health care. They have been caring for the underserved facing temporary emergency needs throughout Pinellas County since 1970.
I'm asking members who attend this Meetup event bring in at least $10 worth of non-perishable food items for this cause or make a $10 cash donation to me the night of the event. If this is a little more than you'd like to donate, please then donate what you feel comfortable with.
Over 60,000 of our neighbors in need receive food assistance through this collaborative effort every month. We’re not just helping feed people, we’re restoring hope to seniors, nourishing kids so they can excel in school, and making families whole again.
In 2015, they distributed over 2.9 million pounds of food in our community, as 1 in 4 children in Pinellas County are hungry. Small things add up. That’s how change happens, so your efforts matter. Thank you for your help!
