Fall events / news

I'd apologize for the absence, but I bought a house so better things were afoot than tending to this blog!  Anyway thought I'd share some upcoming interesting-ness and things to look out for:

- Though not in Tampa, some alarming news on the preservation front in Tampa Bay this week.  The Belleview Biltmore future is looking shaky once again and hints that one of my favorite buildings in downtown St. Pete, the beautiful historic yet abandoned YMCA, may be facing a similar battle or worse fate.

- The Florida Conversations series will start up again at the Tampa Bay History Center on Thursday, October 18th at 6:30 p.m. with a look at Key West http://www.tampabayhistorycenter.org/flaconversations.html. (Don't worry next month they'll be back on a local topic - Hyde Park).  This is usually a monthly event that ceases for the summer.
