60th Birthday Roast of Jon RENO LaBudde

Growing up here in sunny St. Pete, Florida was 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. After graduating from Bogie in 1986, I found myself out and about, doing the normal guy stuff. Drinking beers, chasing the ladies, riding bikes all over town, playing video games at Aladdin’s Castle, hanging at the TI Fun Center and of course, at some point we all ended up at The BIG CATCH. And that’s where I, like most everyone else of those days, ended up meeting Jon. The Jon LaBudde. Jon RENO LaBudde, our Buddy. The birthday boy, who tonight, April 29, 2017, at historic venue NOVA 535 in beautiful Downtown St. Pete, aka DTSP, we gathered to shower with love, to honor and thank him for all that he’s done for us! How did we thank him? That’s the fun part! Read on and enjoy the 60th Birthday Roast of Jon RENO LaBudde!

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!

I make films like a girl

I make films like a girl. Well maybe not me, personally. See last night, Thursday August 18, 2016, instead of hosting my weekly Entrepreneur Social Club here at modernized historic venue NOVA 535, I spent time with WIFT. Wift who? Women In Film and Television. WIFT. WIFT Florida, specifically, tonight. The lovely ladies were here to schmooze, laugh and connect. To network and expand their contacts, and to enjoy time with fellow filmmakers, producers, directors, actors, cast and crew. Feature films and docs, web series and TV commercials, shorts and indie scripts, there was a bit of it all. The common thread here was the love of film. Everyone in attendance, no matter what set, or direction they’re coming from, are ALL film LOVERS. And some are lucky enough to do it for a living. Ready Set, ACTION!2016 0818 WIFT-Women-Film-TV-at-venue-NOVA-535-DTSP-phone-212605

Green and Blue Non Beach Florida Destination Wedding

Green and Blue Non Beach Florida Destination Wedding

From owner Michael S. Novilla:

It was wonderful working with Jessica and Jacob as they both really appreciated all of the painstaking work and details that went into restoring and renovating NOVA 535. Their working in architecture enabled them to use our building as part of the overall decorating in such a lovely way.  I’m always delighted when a couple who are in love, are smart and creative, come together to create a masterful art show – really that’s what this wedding was, in fact Zen may be a good word to describe. They only added just enough, the perfect complements to our building. to showcase their love for each other and for their guests. Congrats to Jacob and Jessica!!
