What’s On Suncoast? 8.13 – 8.20

| Angela Naff |

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things to do around the area this week of August 13, 2021 – August 20, 2021!

Wine on Suncoast

The Beer and Wine Maker’s Pantry

The Beer and Wine Maker’s Pantry
9200 66th St North, Pinellas Park FL

The Beer and Winemaker’s Pantry is a family-owned and operated home-brew shop serving Pinellas and surrounding counties since 1973. They carry a full line of the finest and freshest ingredients needed to make your own wine, beer, cider, soda, kombucha, and vinegar-making products.

Winemaking classes are held most Saturdays at 4 PM and will educate you on all the equipment needed, ingredient options, and the process of making your own wine. The cost is $20.00 and includes four wine and one port tastings, light snacks, and your choice of a bottle of wine to take home with you. Reservations are required. They can also host your private group class from 8-12 attendees; call to schedule. Additionally, The Bear and Wine Maker’s Pantry offers “Brew-On-Premise,” where you make your wine or cider right here at the winery with their assistance. Make your own handcrafted wine custom-designed labels for as little as $4.00- $10.00 per bottle. Each order makes 25-32 bottles. Please stop by to chat with them and enjoy a complimentary sample or two (must be 21 to sample).

Improv on Suncoast

Comedy Lottery

Comedy Lottery
Florida Studio Theatre – Bowne’s Lab
1265 1st Street, Sarasota, FL 34236

It’s the lottery where everyone wins! Twelve lucky audience members determine the fate of our team of highly adaptable improvisers by selecting the night’s lineup from FST’s bucket of over 50 different improv games. Once the night’s games are chosen, our cast of funny people will be off to the races, spinning scenes, sketches, and songs to win your laughter. What will they come up with next? We have absolutely no idea. But one thing is for sure: every Saturday night, their destiny is in your hands. Come out to see one of these amazing shows in August!

Museum on Suncoast

Florida Museum of Photographic Arts

Florida Museum of Photographic Arts
400 N. Ashley Drive Cube 200 Tampa, FL 33602

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is a museum dedicated to exhibiting important photographic art as central to contemporary life and culture.  FMoPA collects, preserves, and exhibits historic and contemporary works by nationally and internationally known photographic artists.  FMoPA also enriches the community by operating outreach programs to educate children and adults.

Currently, they have amazing exhibits such as Noelle Mason’s X-ray Vision vs. Invisibility with images from border patrol, vigilantes, and commercial security x-ray pictures. A unique modern-day twist on society and political views on immigration, refugees, and other topics. This exhibit is sure to inspire a different look at these topics. Additionally, Bremmer Benedict’s Hidden water, Desert Springs, and Uncertain Future exhibit and Jeff Whetstone’s Batture Ritual. These realistic and thought-provoking exhibits must be seen to be appreciated. If the hot weather of the Suncoast is forcing you indoors, why not do so with artwork to ponder? Plan a trip to the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts today!
