The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort's Fred's Cellar has been underutilized for some time, starting as a private club for members and more recently re-envisioned as a speakeasy. But here's something — for one night only — that seems to be a glorious repurposing of the grand space.

Thursday it becomes a Puerto Rico Pop Up Restaurant benefitting those affected by the recent hurricanes. The evening will feature a plated menu featuring traditional Puerto Rican cuisine such as empanadas, pastelon casserole, carne frita and coquito flan, all washed down with craft pina coladas featuring local favorite Don Q rum.

Prices are a la carte, reservations are recommended. 5 to 9:30 p.m. Proceeds go to the Marriott International Disaster Relief Fund. 501 5th Ave. NE, St. Petersburg; (727) 894-1000.
