Have you found yourself heading down to Cleveland Street to eat because they’ve closed a portion of it for outdoor dining? Then you’ll love this, especially with cooler weather eventually finding its way to Tampa Bay. It has now become a semi-permanent fixture and will be known as “The District" with the closure in place in the 400 to 600 blocks of Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater. It’s an especially nice way to enjoy a sunset and possibly a show at the Capitol Theater.
I like grabbing some fresh cut fruit for an easy and healthier snack in the store but this is one to get rid of. Walmart has a recall out on their Country Fresh brand that includes cut or sliced apples, grapes, mangos, pineapples and cantaloupe. The FDA says the fruit could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes which can make you very sick and is especially dangerous if you have a compromised immune system, for young children or seniors. It was not sold in Florida but if you have fruit-loving friends and family in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas pass this along to them.
It’s another shining example of What’s Good In Tampa Bay. Idlewild Baptist Church handed out 4,000 food boxes in just one day this past Sunday. Yerusha Bunag is the mission’s director at Idlewild Baptist Church and worked with church volunteers to hand those boxes out, and have done so for the past six months during the pandemic.
I’ve seen so many acts of kindness like this during our pandemic and I’m sure you have as well. If you’d like to share those with me, send me an open mic on the Dove App. I’d love to let everyone in Tampa Bay that we’re never alone when we work together as one community. You can download the Dove App in the App Store or Google Play.
