Industry Night on EDGE: Every Monday from 5:00pm – 11:00pm
Consider this a toast to those who are usually the ones pouring the toasts. Monday nights on EDGE are now dedicated to the hard-working men and women of the hospitality service industry. We know that you spend most of the weekends working; think of this as your Friday night, which you so deserve. Gather with your coworkers and fellow industry service comrades at South Tampa’s only rooftop bar for the best Monday night drink specials in Tampa! Here’s how it works; present proof of hospitality industry employment and receive 50% off all drinks. Paying half the price means you can drink double the amount, right? At least we think so. As fellow industry service workers, we know how hard you all work. Cheers to you!
Epicurean Must Do’s
Élevage Happy Hour: Join us for the happiest of hours at Élevage. Enjoy tasty appetizers, select wines and cocktails for $5 and choice beers for $3 every day (yes, every day). Why limit happy to an hour? Enjoy happy hour pricing from 3pm to 7pm. The offerings will change daily but prices stay the same! Pop in. Be seen. And join the hottest happy hour in South Tampa.
50 Cent Martini Lunches: Élevage is serving up 50 cent martinis for lunch! Head over to Élevage Monday through Friday between 11am to 3pm and enjoy 50 cent martinis when you purchase a lunch entrée. Just think, you could have seven martinis for the price of one latte. We think Don Draper would approve. It’s the best Tampa lunch special around. Click here for more details.
And while you’re at it, visit the CASS Art Exhibition: Niark1 in the library lounge of Epicurean before the next artist arrives to our rotating satellite gallery next month. You won’t be able to miss the colorful monsters and creatures that brought this French artist to fame! Be sure to experience Niakrk1’s entire collection at CASS Contemporary Art Space & Studio.
