Tastings among events at Star Liquor & Wine's new Riverview location

RIVERVIEW — Star Liquor & Wine manager Terry Lochan said his store will still have plenty of events that will bring patrons to the new location at 3847 U.S. 301 S, at the corner of Falkenberg Road, in the Publix shopping center across from Progressive Insurance.

"Even though we're a small liquor store, we have the vision to do a lot of events," Lochan said.

Wine tastings are already proving popular with Star's clientele, Lochan said, and it's not unusual for dozens of customers to be waiting at the store before the wine expert leading the tasting arrives.

The tastings offer customers not just a chance to sample various wines, Lochan said, but an opportunity to get a lot more educated on wine varieties and how to pair wines with food.

Of course, Star Liquor & Wine isn't all about wine. It also stocks popular and high-end brands of liquor, and hosts vodka and rum tastings. There's also a walk-in beer cooler with more than 250 kinds of beer — from familiar domestic brands to imports and obscure craft beers.

Customers can mix and match different brands of beers, so they can sample six different brands in a six pack, or buy a single beer of a brand that's piqued their curiosity, Lochan said. The Star staff is educated on all the store's beers, wines and liquors and is ready to offer guidance.

Star Liquor & Wine has locations around Florida. The first Riverview location, at 13192 Big Bend Road, opened about five years ago.

The new location is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Sunday. Call (813) 630-2345 for information, or visit starliquorfl.com, which includes a calendar of upcoming events.

Therapist moves office, increases services

For five years, Damon Dye has been the only therapist working in his office, Triangle Resolutions.

Now he's expanded both the size and scope of his practice. He's relocated to new offices, adding three therapists and offering a variety of services for adults and children.

Dye himself has a wide range of specialties and certifications, including treatment of gambling addictions and emotional problems involving veterans, including post-traumatic stress disorder.

The name Triangle Solutions represents the practice's philosophy that spiritual, emotional and physiological healing are equally important and interdependent.

The expanded practice also includes counseling for couples and families, and play therapy for children with autism.

The new Triangle Resolutions office is at 6322 US 301 S, just south of Bloomingdale Avenue near the Home Depot.

For more information, call (813) 413-7575, or visit the website at triangleresolutions.com.
