The Centre Club
As many in the Tampa Bay Area are preparing for the upcoming Republican National Convention, we've heard some say they plan on staying clean of the crowded streets connecting Downtown and the Westshore District. While many businesses may be shutting their doors during this time, we'd like to remind all Members that the Club will infact be open! While the club will be hosting private events for various groups during the RNC, there will be minimal impact to usage by Centre Club members. Below are listed areas of the club and the dates and times they are affected:
Monday, August 27 The Skyline Dining Room will be closed for a private party, and a la carte breakfast and lunch service will alternatively be served in Bentley’s Lounge and Bayview I.
Tuesday, August 28 Bentley’s Lounge will be closed until mid-afternoon, however, the Skyline Dining Room will be available all day for dining and meeting space for Club Members.
Wednesday, August 29 The Skyline Dining Room will be closed for a private party beginning early afternoon, and a la carte dinner service will alternatively be served in Bentley’s Lounge and Bayview I.
Thursday, August 30 Bentley’s Lounge will be closed until mid-afternoon, however, the Skyline Dining Room will be available all day for dining and meeting space for Club Members.
We look forward to seeing all of our Members at the Club next week!
The Centre Club
With July slowly coming to a close, and August right around the corner, the Centre Club has taken initiative to be "In with the New." The introduction of the Lunch Bunch table last week quickly became a favorite among Members, allowing single diners the opportunity to connect and build new relationships. If you also plan on dining at the Club during lunch time, we have begun a "Pick Your Price" daily feature. This dining option has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews, and renewed energy for members to order Chef V's daily feature. If you didn't think we could possibly add another new addition to lunch, you'd be wrong! The Club is rolling out a new and improved lunch menu starting next Wednesday, July 25th. Although we have not changed the entire menu, leaving of course, the member favorites, there are a number of great new dishes including; a Chopped Shrimp Cobb Salad, Buccaneer Burger, Floribbean Grouper Taco, and Misoyaki Salmon.
Wondering what else is new? A number of exciting Member Events starting this Tuesday. We will begin a Texas Hold'em Poker Night hosted by Rick's Poker every fourth Tuesday of the month. If you're thinking of playing a hand with your fellow Members, reserve your seat early at one of the four tables of 8 and make sure to bring your poker face. The Supper Club Dinner & Show is another new event brought to you by the Centre Club and the Spanish Lyric Theater. The sound of music will fill the Skyline Dining Room for one special evening as we set the stage for some amazingly talented performers to provide enjoyable ambiance as you wine and dine your Friday away.
To kick off the month of August we cordially invite all Members, and their guests, to celebrate our Membership Director, Michelle Dyer's new arrival! Our Pretty in Pink Membership Social is a one time opportunity for your friends & colleagues to join the Club at no cost.* Michelle asks you to bring only yourself, a guest, and to wear your pink best. For all our brew drinkers out there, The Rising Leaders Committee has teamed up with Tampa Bay Brew Bus to put together a one-of-a-kind Pub Crawl. On the first Friday in August we will depart on the Brew Bus at 6pm to begin Crawling to Cigar City Brewery, Bar Louie, Ceviche then back to the Centre Club.
As always, we ask you to please contact our Member Concierge at 813.268.4040 to RSVP to any of the Member Events listed above.
