Say goodbye to the "Blanuary" blues with this lip-smacking event at the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. The sixth annual Taste of Safety Harbor is 5:30 to 9 p.m. Monday.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Guests can sample appetizers, entrees, desserts and wine from 19 food and beverage vendors from Safety Harbor and surrounding areas. Proceeds benefit the Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce, the event's sponsor.

"We'll have some of the usual favorites as well as some novel dishes from some of our newer members," said event chairwoman Susan Petersen.

The vendors include Carmel Cafe and Wine Bar, Besa Grill, Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery, Crispers, Nolan's Pub, Paradise Restaurant, Peace Love and Cake, Tapping the Vine, Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, the Hideaway, Lulu's Portuguese and Brazilian Steakhouse, Greektown Grille, Taste Cafe, Sam's Club, Ed's Fine Wines, Michelle's Heavenly Pies, Grindhouse and Poblano's Mexican Grill and Bar.

Planned activities will add some extra tang to the evening.

Art by members of the Exhibiting Society of Artists will be on display; artists will offer quick portraits.

In addition, attendees will vote for their favorite restaurant; the winner receives the People's Choice Award, sponsored by the Clearwater Threshers.

The event also includes a silent auction for a variety of prizes including a signed football and other items from former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy.

Musicians from Countryside High will perform, and the Dance Tonight studio will provide dance demonstrations.

"It's a great way to start the New Year and a fun way to unwind from the holidays," Petersen said.

Submit ideas for Diversions features to Terri Bryce Reeves at Events must take place in North Pinellas.

  1. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.

  5. Bob Buckhorn: Expanding homestead exemption will endanger Tampa's progress


    In the years leading up to my taking office, Tampa families experienced some of the hardest times in recent history. Homes were lost, jobs were cut, and optimism for the future waned.

    Critics say expanding the homestead exemption for Florida property owners will strain the resources of local governments as they recover from the Great Recession.[SKIP O'ROURKE   |   Times, 2005]
