Hi, Edward here. I'm working hard to keep up with the changes in the Grand Central District of St. Petersburg, Florida. A lot of growth has occurred in the last few years and I'm struggling to keep up with the demand for great food.
Owning a pub is quite a challenge in a tourist town that has transformed to become a foodie destination with a strong craft beer presence. I'm carrying a number of draft beers from local brewers, 3 Daughters, Green Bench, Pinellas Ale Works, and Overflow Brewing Company. That's only the ones that are nearby.
I'm preparing my best chili recipe for the Chili Cookoff on Saturday. So far, I'm very close to perfection. The event will take place between the 2400 - 2600 blocks of Central Avenue with over forty contestants. There will also be beer tastings and prize drawings.
The variety is chili is incredible. It ranges from hot and spicy to white chili and more vegan offerings than ever before. Come on down, support the neighborhood and enjoy the tastings.

A highlight of Savannah's new glass bead workshop is a technique called flame-working, which requires the careful wielding of acetylene torches. Understandably, safety is a top priority. But as Savannah is ensuring her students' safety inside, a hit-and-run driver strikes down a pedestrian outside her shop.
The victim is Nicole Borawski, the bartender/manager at the Queen's Head Pub, owned by Savannah's boyfriend Edward. It quickly becomes clear that this was no random act of vehicular manslaughter. Now the glass shop owner is all fired up to get a bead on the driver--before someone else meets a dead end . . .
