Shopping Planner: Health and Fitness Expo, Misred's 7th anniversary
Pump You Up: Health and Fitness Expo
It feels good to be healthy and fit, right? I feel extremely virtuous after a day of working out and healthy food choices. Plus, with everybody wearing athleisure, even people who aren’t interested in exercise like looking as if they are. That said, the 8 On Your Side Health and Fitness Expo is large enough to fill the Tampa Convention Center on Friday and Saturday. The event is in conjunction with the Gasparilla Distance Classic all weekend in downtown Tampa. The expo is free and features a variety of vendors. Find the latest trends in running shoes from Brooks and New Balance; visit OrangeTheory’s booth to learn about a different kind of gym experience; and sample deliciousness from Yucatan Guacamole and Tsamma Watermelon Juice. Other vendors offer medical services and more healthy biz. 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday, 6 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday in the center’s East Hall. 333 S Franklin St. tampabayrun.com.
Lucky Seven: Misred's Anniversary Celebration
It's hard to believe that the downtown St. Petersburg boutique, Misred Outfitters is already celebrating their seventth anniversary this weekend. I remember when they opened as one of the first businesses on the revamped 600 Block. I even still have the very first top I bought there, when their focus was more vintage heavy. Now the 600 Block is bustling with activity, and although many of the original galleries and businesses have left, Misred is still an anchor. They've changed with the times as well, now offering contemporary and trendy apparel, shoes and accessories. They'll celebrate Friday-Sunday with giveaways, drinks and bites! Every purchase qualifies you for a chance to win a Misred's Favorites giftbasket. Also, for every $50 spent, you will recieve $5 Misred Cash to be used on a future purchase from Monday-March 15. 615 Central Ave. bemisred.com.
