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.
