Take Five: Cage Brewing


Take Five: Cage Brewing St Petersburg, Florida


Over in the Grand Central District you’ll find a converted auto-body shop and diner with a sign that says Cage Brewing. Once you’re inside you’ll find a quirky, artsy, and relaxed atmosphere and you’ll wonder why you haven’t been here before, or why it’s taken you so long to come back. The location was important to the owner because he loved the old Florida feel and vibe, and it shows within Cage’s walls. They didn’t replace or change a lot of the old history of the building, paying homage to what it once was. When it came time to name the brewery, Cage only seemed fitting.  They started out in Treasure Island in a tiny space where regulations required they lock up the brewery area and tanks. Because they didn’t have room to spare, they used chain link fence and around the area and locked it in its own “Cage”. “We could not keep up with production in such a small location so we decided to go big so we now have a big brewery only with a bigger Cage,” the owner laughed.


Cage is one of four breweries within walking distance of Grand Central and Kenwood, but it’s charm and events set it apart. Not only can you find a wide selection of craft beer and knowledgeable staff, but there are free old school arcade games, two bar spaces, one indoors where it’s nice and cool for those dreaded summer nights and one outdoors where the party is,but you can also see amazing live performance by some of Tampa Bay’s best local acts. Cage also hosts art shows and gives Tampa Bay artists a chance to show off their work and has regular food trucks available so there’s no need to go anywhere else when you get hungry.

halloween safety tips

Halloween Safety Tips From The Price Group Realtors

Trick or treat! Soon little ones will be knocking on doors in costumes and adults going to less-than-kid-friendly (but still fun!) events. Halloween is a fun-for-all-ages day. But a lot can go wrong. With the recent creepy clowns that have been popping up throughout the country, we want to make sure you are being safe this candy-eating season. Here are some Halloween safety tips to help keep you and your family safe this year.

Tips For Parents

1. Don’t walk in the street

In neighborhoods like Kenwood or Old Northeast it can seem easier to cross the street wherever it’s convenient instead of crossing in the crosswalk. Especially with the parking of larger cars on the street, it can be very difficult for oncoming cars to see children in time. Also, avoid walking between parked cars. Bottom line: Use the crosswalks. That’s what they’re for.

2. Ensure your child is seen

If you are unable to go early in the evening, make sure your child is seen by passing cars by adding a reflective tape to their costume, shoes, and/or candy bag. You can also have them carry or wear glow sticks, just ensure that the life of them is longer or as long as you plan on being out and about.

3. Do not leave your child unoccupied

Again, maybe a bit of a no-brainer, but it’s worth mentioning. Keeping them within your line of sight can ensure they are not exposed to anything not age-appropriate and ensure they are not eating any candy that may be dangerous.

Tips For Adult Trick-Or-Treaters

1.  “Okay” rowdy parties with neighbors

If you’re planning on having a large party, especially one that goes into the wee hours of the morning, it’s a good idea to give your neighbors some notice. Even better, invite them to join! No one can complain about the noise if you’re all in on it!

2. Be extra cautious on your commute

Planning to party hard? Cool. Please do it safely. If you plan on drinking make sure you have a designated driver lined up or use services such as Uber or Lyft. If you are driving (and not drinking) watch out for kids in the street. Even the best kids can make a mistake and run out into the road. Drive slowly and watch both sides of the road.

3. Make sure your home is safe inside and out

Make sure there is a clear, well-lit way to and from your front door. This will help ensure no one trips while getting in and out of your party. While fake blood is to be expected, make sure no one sheds any real blood by moving glass or breakable objects out of the party area.

Not sure what to do this Halloween? Listed below are some events around St. Petersburg you might enjoy. On 10/22 show up with a carved pumpkin to 6th Annual Pumpkin Fest at Ale and the Witch and get a $10 gift card. October 21st get your grub on at Food Truck Around Town Trick Or Treat at 250 8th Ave SE. Saturday, October 29th you have your pick: Halloween Open House benefiting SPCA Tampa Bay, and Spooky Saturday at Station House


Open Streets St. Pete Takes Over Downtown

This weekend Keep Saint Pete Local, one of St. Petersburg’s many beloved community organizations,Open Streets St. Pete introduced a new festival called Open Streets St. Pete. The Open Streets concept started in 2010 with an emphasis on making the streets available to the public for walking, biking, and community fun while regular traffic is diverted. This year was the first the idea was brought to St. Petersburg, combining it with Indie Fam Fest. It highlighted all of the best parts of our city: The makers, music, and the community.

The streets surrounding Williams park were all shut off to motorized traffic. Bikes, dogs, and vendors flooded the open pavement from 1-5pm. St. Pete has many different markets and hold its vendors in high regard. There were many local makers at Open Streets St. Pete, including St Pete’s own Kahwa Coffee, The Hole Donuts, and O’Berry’s Succulents. A food truck rally which lined the entire west side of Williams Park and kept all the bikers fed well.

Open Streets St. Pete Hoola MonstersSt. Pete’s music scene has deep and young roots. You could easily see the diversity of this at Open Streets St Pete. St. Pete Music Factory, a company who helps train kids to learn about music, put on a great show with performances from many young, talented bands. Hoola Monsters provided hula-hoops for kids while adults danced alongside to thOpen Strees St. Petee music that filled the park.

The best part was the community. Church organizations, The Tampa Bay Rays, and a myriad of businesses all came together to offer a safe, fun environment for our residents and neighbors. For those living close by, it was only a short walk or bike ride to and from the event. The surrounding neighborhoods enjoy these type of events throughout the year and its residents are proud to call areas like Old Northeast, Old Southeast, and Uptown home.
