What’s On Suncoast? 12.24 – 12.31

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things around the area this week of December 24 – 31, 2021!

Wild On Suncoast

Christmas in the Wild

Christmas in the Wild
ZooTampa at Lowry Park – 1101 W Sligh Ave, Tampa, FL 33604

It’s the most wonderful time of the year at ZooTampa with the return of Christmas in the Wild, featuring one of Tampa Bay’s largest light displays, delectable holiday treats, amazing wildlife, and new festive adventures. This year is BIGGER, better, and brighter than ever, with six new illuminated zones of lights, festive entertainment that the whole family will enjoy.

Christmas in the Wild is a limited capacity event. Advanced purchase tickets and timed reservations are strongly encouraged and the only way to guarantee admission. Catch the show daily between 4 and 9 p.m. (closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas).

Dark Door Spirits

Dark Door Spirits

Dark Door Spirits
6608 Anderson Rd, Tampa, FL 33634

Co-founders Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall started the Cerberus Craft Distillery with the Dark Door Spirits Brand and one simple goal in mind: to create a damn good product. Marshall and Allen realized they had authentic ideas and the ability, conviction, and means to make those ideas a reality.  The Spirit of IPA was their first spirit to hit the market in the summer of 2016. Later, they soon found our niche, creating unexpectedly delicious spirits for those who desire something outside the industry norms. 

Since its beginning, the world of distilled spirits has often been restricted to the status quo, enforcing industry standards developed years ago. While they will never sacrifice excellence for the sake of something new, this team will always continue to challenge themselves to find excellent new flavors that lead to a wonderfully unexpected drinking experience. If you want to see what a great cocktail should take, book a tasting and tour today online, and make it a fun outing for friends and family alike this holiday season.
