Kick off the Seaside School Half Marathon race weekend with Chef Emeril Lagasse at the inaugural ‘Taste of the Race’ event.

You don’t have to be in the race to join in the fun!

It all begins at Modica Market from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, February 27. Emeril will be at the store raffling off a set of his famous cookware, a $300 Modica gift basket and plenty of other goodies. The drawing will be held at 4 p.m.

Then, at 6 p.m., the official ‘Taste of the Race’ soiree begins at the Seaside Neighborhood School.

Guests will feast on delicious food from some of the Gulf Coast’s top restaurants: Emeril’s, Emeril’s Tchoup’s Chop, Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, The Bay, Great Southern Cafe, Stinky’s Fish Camp, Bud and Alley’s and more.

Enjoy live music by the Trick Pony, sip beverages while mingling among friends, and, if you are in the race, get a chance to pick up your race registration packets early before the rush on Saturday.

The main event is priced at $99 per ticket. Sales are now open and can be purchased by visiting Event Brite. Proceeds benefit The Seaside School Foundation, a non-profit organization.

It’s time to clean out your closets and sell your stuff! The Gulf Place Yard Sale will take place on Saturday, February 28, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on The Green at Gulf Place.

The deadline to register for a space is February 20. Table and two chairs are included in the booth fee for the first 25 who return the vendor form. The cost is $50 per booth and sellers may bring their own tent (no larger than 10×10) to provide shade. Setup begins at 5 a.m. and must be completed no later than 7:30 a.m.

From trinkets to kitchen accessories to apparel and fashion merchandise, all items are welcome. If you don’t want to be a vendor, simply stroll the tables for unique trinkets!

For booth information and vendor forms, email Tiffani Salinas or call 850-502-9233.

It never fails, one of the first things new residents of 30A are shocked to learn is that curbside recycling isn’t the norm here. While other cities and towns have offered recycling services for years, our little slice of paradise has been a bit slow to catch on.

30A’s John Mark Turner is hoping to change all that with his company, Blu-Binz Curbside Recycling.

This Saturday, February 28, Seagrove restaurant 723 Whiskey Bravo is teaming up again with the non-profit Angel Flight Soars for the second annual ‘Party with a Purpose’.

Last year’s event raised over $85,000 for the non-profit and owners, Skip and Victoria Moore, said they wanted to celebrate their fourth year in business by again making a difference for those in need.

Angel Flight organizes a network of volunteer pilots to provide free air transportation for people who need to travel to receive lifesaving medical treatment, but lack the means. The Moores began flying missions after they acquired their Cirrus SR22 and Skip received his instrument rating. The organization helps families focus on getting better instead of worrying about how to get there, whether the boundaries are geographic or monetary.
