Time to Break Out Your Shuffleboard Chic Attire and Celebrate Vintage St. Petersburg at Cocktails on the Courts

Annual Museum of History Fundraising Event Returns to Shuffleboard Club March 3rd

 

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (February 19, 2018) – It’s not your grandpa’s gala. Instead of your black tie, dress in your favorite shuffleboard chic; grab your tang and biscuits (shuffleboard cue and discs) and head to the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club to celebrate vintage St. Petersburg.

 

Held Saturday, March 3, Cocktails on the Courts is an evening of Florida cuisine and libations, dancing under the stars to the sounds of the Coo Coo Ca Choo band, live mermaids, live auctions, photo booths, a two-headed calf, and of course, shuffleboard.

This year, local artists will be painting St. Pete scenes on the shuffleboard biscuits (discs) on site, and they will be available at the silent auction.

Tickets for the event are $75 per person or a private court for eight guests can be sponsored for $1000.

Tickets are available online at www.historystpete.org or by calling the Museum at 727.894.1052.
