Cool tricks, illusions that look real and all sorts of surprises will be the highlight of next week’s 2-3-4 happy hour ($2 wines, $3 beers and $4 house mixers).

Have you every wondered how magicians make illusions look real? Or how they get LIVE BUNNIES out of their hat? (I know I have!). During this month’s Cocktails & Connections, the Centre Connect Committee invites you to be amazed and enjoy the comedy antics of Magician, Elliott Smith… and maybe, just maybe, he will reveal his secrets! 

Elliott has entertained Corporations, television audiences and travelers across the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Mexico for over 40 years. PLUS, he is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the distinguished Order of Merlin Shield, Elliott has performed his special brand of magic and comedy for International Ambassadors, the late Liberace as well as for Jay Leno.

Phones RINGING!  Emails pinging----   Text messages popping up! These are only just a couple of the sounds that are heard in the War Room over at One Buc Place during the draft.   Mark Dominik, General Manager  of our Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is going to give us an inside look at what happens, what is said, and how intense the moments are before and during the NFL Draft.   We're all interested to hear about the Darrelle Revis trade and the lengthy process it took to make the deal -  were the Buc's stalling? Was Revis unsure about coming to Tampa? What are the motivators around a trade like this?  It can't be all about the money?  How does Mark and his team rate the job they doing in evaluating talent?    How do you keep talent??  How does this translate to business?  Why was Raheem Morris not successful as Head Coach? Get these questions and more answered as we welcome Tampa Bay Buccaneers General Manager, Mark Dominik, on Thursday, May 2nd at 6pm - complimentary cocktails and passed hor d'oeuvres.  This event is open to Centre Club and Tampa Bay Society Members only and invited guests. Reservations are required given the demand and space is limited.  Contact the Club Concierge at 813.286.4040 to RSVP!
