On Thursday, May 16th, from 6-10pm, Ceviche St Pete will host A Night of Music, Flavor and Art to benefit the Museum of Fine Arts in Downtown St. Petersburg. The owners of Ceviche have personally guaranteed a minimum of $10,000 to the museum and additional donations will be collected at the door. For a minimum donation of $20, guests will enjoy open bar, live music and many different types of tapas. Those who donate $100 or more will be recognized for their support. The fundraising goal for the evening is $30,000.“We are red-carpeting the entire block of Beach Drive & Central Ave. This is going to be a first class fundraising event,” said CEO, Joe Orsino. Guests will enjoy live entertainment from Javier and the Sombras Flamencas, a traditional Spanish guitarist who plays many of today’s top hits. Spanish Flamenco dancers will also perform throughout the night.Ceviche saw the alliance with the MFA as a natural fit. Both were key anchors to Beach Drive, long before it saw the bustle and boom of today. Ceviche also features within the restaurant art from several well-recognized artists. The Maja Desnuda, by Franciso Goya c. 1800, is a defining element of Ceviche’s brand. This piece was quite controversial in its day as it was the first full nude to look you directly in the eye, as opposed to renaissance nudes, which looked away in a demure manner. Also featured in the restaurant is ironwork inspired by Gaudí. Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudí, was recently brought back to the headlines when pope, Benedict XVI, took his only travel outside of Rome to a church called Família, in Barcelona, Spain. It is said to be one of the most spectacular buildings ever constructed by man, the vision of a genius known as God's architect, Antoni Guadi.
