    PRESIDENT'S CORNER

    Fellow Skalleagues:

    Can we all agree that July's dinner at Splitsville was loads of fun? What an amazing venue for a casual, laid back down home experience.

    The food was fantastic. Comfort food at its finest. What's not to love about deep fried chicken, momma's mac n cheese, cheddar cheese drop biscuits, pulled pork and shrimp and grits? And that was just the dinner selections. 

    Appetizers consisted of fried green tomatoes, honey chicken and biscuit, bbq chicken flatbread and delicious cheese burger sliders. 

    Add southern house salad and slaw, homemade doughnuts and chocolate chip cookies and you will have to take a notch out of your belt buckle. 

    Congrats to the top two Bowlers of the evening, Cameron and Chris. Hope you enjoyed your prize. Our worst bowler of the evening got a prize as well. Did you tank it on purpose Sarah? :-) 

    Huge thank you to the team at Splitsville for a most memorable night! You all were great!

    There is no meeting in August so our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 14th at Island Way Grill. Expect another exceptional dinner and experience. Registration is now open. 

    Here’s to Happiness! Good Health! Friendship! Long Life – SKAL!

    Respectfully, 

    Steven Rodriguez

    Fellow Skalleagues:

    Bon Appetit was an amazing culinary journey. From the Chef's selection of iced Oysters on the Half shell to the finest Yellowfin Tuna and Charbroiled Octopus Entree, they did not disappoint the palate. The evening was spectacular! Many thanks to Owner and longtime SKAL member, Peter Kreuziger and his amazing staff.

    We had a fantastic evening at the brand new Aloft-Element Tampa Midtown this month.

    The property is beautiful with some awesome features like their rooftop pool, restaurant, bar and meeting space. It is a great venue for any occasion. 

    Special thanks to Jo Dee Colonius for making our visit so memorable. We really enjoyed the tours you and Nancy Jennings took our group on

    The food and beverages were delicious. Presentation was spot on and the management and staff looked after our every need. Kudos to the Chef. 

    Next month we will visit one of our favorite venues, Bahama Breeze, Tampa Airport where we will once again dress in our tackiest tourist outfits (if you dare) or best tropical attire. This is always a fun filled event with a laid back vibe.  Registration is open now so be sure to register.

    Greetings Fellow Skalleagues,

    Thank you to Cameron O’Connell and Pat Robinson of ZooTampa at Lowry Park for hosting our September dinner. It was so enjoyable to walk around the spacious outdoor park, enjoying the animals and habitats and then dine in a responsible and socially distanced fashion in their lovely Reilly’s Reserve.

    We were proud to be the first in person event following the COVID-19 pandemic and appreciate all the steps the team took to help us #GetWildSafely. If you have visitors and contacts looking for activities or event space, I would highly recommend reaching out to the team at ZooTampa.

    I hope you found encouragement in the company of other industry partners during these trying times.  Many of you are experiencing indicators of success as we start to see the industry slowly recover.

    Take heart - The World’s Largest Travel Platform, TripAdvisor, ranks both St. Pete Beach and Clearwater in the Top 10 US Destinations for Fall of 2020.

    Our beautiful beaches, world-class arts and culture scene, exciting culinary options and more stand ready for our travel-ready guests to return and the signature hospitality of Tampa Bay will be here to welcome them. That is all thanks to you. 

    In keeping with the plan for interactive socially-distanced events, we invite you to attend our October 12th event as Clearwater Marine Aquarium unveils their new meeting space and showcases their new dolphin complex that is home to Winter, Hope, PJ, Nick & Hemmingway. 

    Having visited these spaces myself many times, you won’t want to miss this event that is guaranteed to go ‘swimmingly’!

    Thank you to all who have donated for our upcoming Holiday Auction.  As a reminder, please continue to collect items and bring them to the October and November meeting as we prepare for another unforgettable holiday celebration.

    Masks are required for this event.

    You and any guests are invited and can register at:   www.SkalTampaBay.com/events

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues,

    Thank you for joining us for our June Meeting – it was so lovely to see your faces as we finally gathered back in person!  We must start by thanking our fantastic host and fellow SKAL members – Julie Cortina, Ming Rogers and their team at the Bay Shore at Westshore Yacht Club.  We appreciated your flexibility with dates and the extra measures you took to ensure the safety of our guests including extra space allowing for social distance from registration through networking and into our dinner.  The renovated space looks great, the food was phenomenal, the live entertainment really enhanced the ambiance and way to order up a gorgeous sunset!

    We were happy to welcome Thomas Fraher, GM of the Don Cesar.  He transferred from the SKAL DC Club and while he has been a member since March, this was our first in person meeting for him to attend.  Thomas, it was a pleasure to have both you and your wife join us and look forward to seeing you at future meetings. 

    During our meal last night, we took the time to not only introduce our guests as we usually do, but to hear updates from everyone in attendance about the status of their business.  I was inspired by your stories of resilience, recovery, and how you are re-imagining how to continue to bring memorable experiences to our guests with our Bay Area signature hospitality.  I hope you felt encouraged recognizing how business is returning and were reminded that you can and should lean on your fellow Skalleagues for support and referrals. 

    At the conclusion of our meeting, we took a moment to recognize the passing of our SKAL Host from our October meeting at the Sirata.  Jeff Abbaticchio passed away last week of cancer.  Those of us that knew him will tell stories of his outgoing energy, fun-loving spirit, and signature optimism that made him a favorite of all he came in contact with.  In true Jeff nature, we could not have a moment of silence but rather, a long and loud cheer to celebrate a life well lived! You will truly, deeply missed my dear friend.

    Our next meeting will be held on July 13th  at Top Golf Tampa offering an evening of fun and celebration.  Top Golf offers the opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to engage and in addition to a great menu, includes 2 hours of unlimited Top Golf Play.  The dress code for our evening is golf attire/casual attire.  You and any guests are invited and can register at:

     www.SkalTampaBay.com/events  and you can check out all of our past event photos at: www.SkalTampaBay.com/photos.  Also, as requested by many, you’ll also have a chance to meet our newest Skalleague, referred to as the ‘First Baby’ – my new son Kai will be joining us.

    Additionally, we usually do not have a meeting in August but will this year since we had cancellations in April and May due to COVID.  Please Save the Date for our August meeting taking place at the Karol Hotel on August 10!

    Let’s continue to do what we do best in Hospitality - take care of our people!  SKAL!!
