Welcome to About the Town where you’ll discover
exclusive notable personalities, regional recipes, innovative food and wine events, and fun adventures.

You’ll discover interviews with community leaders, innovative thinkers, restaurant reviews, and the newest “foodie” ideas from regional chefs. We recently talked with entrepreneurs, politicians, local film producers, executive chefs, and people who make a difference in each of our towns.

Recently, community leaders and business owners gathered to hear CEO Bill Edwards discuss his plans for BayWalk. If you have not been to downtown St. Petersburg in a few months, you’ll discover the retail operation is involved with major renovations.

The business luncheon, held at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club,  gave audience members an opportunity to ask Edwards questions. Many people wanted to know who the new retail tenants would be and one audience member asked about an Apple Computer store as a possible tenant for BayWalk. “Apple is hard to get, ” Edwards said.
