What's Happening Central Florida


Hey guys! On Sunday night I was honored to judge the Miss City Side pageant in Tampa. Anjila Cavalier represented the club very well this year, but now her reign has ended. You can still see her weekly at Flamingo Resort in St. Petersburg and of course at other establishments in Tampa Bay. Congratulations to Angelique Young who was crowned Miss City Side 2015! Then, on Tuesday, I saw Beauty and the Beast at the Straz Center with two friends who came to visit me from Arkansas, a state I used to call home. I felt lots of love this week and I hope you do too!
