The Best Viewpoint to Manage Your Wealth From

The Best Viewpoint to Manage Your Wealth From

On a beautiful “winter” evening here in sunny Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, aka DTSP, business partners Susan Pilon and Melissa Converse, founders of Viewpoint Wealth Management, hosted a delightful cocktail party for clients and close friends. Viewpoint Wealth Management is part of the Raymond James financial family, and this shinny apple hasn’t fallen far from that strong, deep rooted tree. Susan and Melissa are the warm, engaging kind of people that also really know their stuff. Guess that’s why they chose my historic event venue NOVA 535 for their 1st anniversary party. Ha! See what I did there? Congratulations on your first year, ladies!! Bravo! It was a night filled with laughter, new connections, success stories and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Viewpoint on Thursday, February 2, 2017…

50th Birthday with Friends Family and Fire

Growing up here in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida was certainly a treat. I was lucky enough to live on the west side of town, near park street and Abercrombie Park, just south of the Garden Drive-In. When I was 11 years old, another Michael moved into our neighborhood, and soon we were best of friends. Our neighborhood was filled with several families, so we always had plenty of playmates, for hide and go seek freeze-tag, kickball, Frisbee, soccer, tree climbing and lots and lots of bike riding. Mike was older and stronger and fell into the role of big brother and friend. We spent a ton of time together, certainly some of the best years of our lives. Fast Forward to tonight, as we celebrate with Friends Family and Fire!

NOVAween 10 Ignited The Spirit of Halloween

Halloween may have already passed this year, but I think we’re all still celebrating the excitement Downtown St. Pete shared at NOVAween 10. The unique and historic event space, NOVA 535, hosts an annual Halloween extravaganza and 2016 marked the tenth anniversary of this memorable spooky soiree. I’m Erika Cain, Entertainment Coordinator at NOVA 535 and Content Creator at our sister company, DowntownStPete.com. As I have hosted and provided entertainment for the party for the past three years (huge thanks to owner, Michael S. Novilla, for keeping me on board!), I can say one thing for certain: NOVAween is not your ordinary Halloween Party. The event itself has transpired to a well-anticipated ball. Why? The energy within the venue is always beyond positive and everyone has a permanent grin on their face when they are at the party. Perhaps it’s the great tunes that brings everyone together or NOVA’s multiple full-liquor bars that does the trick. Whatever it may be – it has become DTSP’s (aka DownTown St. Pete) favorite Halloween Party!

A Lively Welcome to Novaween 10

Well, the brick road isn’t yellow and the destination isn’t Oz, but it’s a marvelous brick path to unique venue NOVA 535 in Downtown St. Pete, Florida. As this gorgeous space is primarily known for creating custom private events and stunning weddings, NOVA also throws wicked public parties for everyone to drink, dance and have a ball at. NOVAween is absolutely no exception to this. We celebrated the tenth anniversary of this spooktacular Halloween bash and the thrills began as soon as the ghouls and goblins of DTSP entered the candle-lit bamboo courtyard. Novaween 10 was full of treats for guests to enjoy and the first ingredient of the entire cauldron was the red carpet treatment as Barry Lively snapped photos of guests sporting their devilish disguises as they entered the party. Talk about a lively welcome to Novaween!!
