For a limited time, get 50% off Brunch and Bubbles Fest tickets through I Love The Burg while supplies last.
On Saturday, April 9, a massive food and wine festival takes over St. Pete’s Pier. Presented by Mermosa Wines, Bubbles and Brunch Fest offers sparkling cocktails, fine wines and Southern Lowland brunch at Spa Beach Park for an all-day party by the water.
Festival-goers will be able to taste unique and sparkling beverages for brunch, try the Low Country brunch and have access to a host of local restaurants preparing brunch specialties for the occasion. The sprawling party will also host a stellar musical lineup, with an epic DJ battle between the bay’s top DJ Sandman against runner-up DJ Lady Shay, plus a live R&B performance from J’Nelle. Plus, Bubbles and Brunch will feature a fashion show of spring and summer looks, as well as a market filled with local artisans and boutiques.
General admission tickets — available at 50% off for a limited time through I Love The Burg — include entry to the event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., a commemorative drink, free tastings, and access to all festival vendors, bars, music and games. VIP tickets entitle you to early access, food and wine pairing with the Netherlands Brunch, reserved seats for the fashion show and a VIP goodie bag.
Bubbles and Brunch for Empowerment
To make it even sweeter, proceeds from the specialty brunch cocktail bar will go to Empowerment, the Clearwater-based community hub that provides a way for women to connect, inspire and support each other. A wide range of wine and spirit brands will be on hand for what organizers described as a chance to enjoy brunch, shopping, music and outdoor games on the pier.
Mermosa Wines, the host of the event, is Florida’s first black-owned winery and maker of a fantastic line of sparkling wines. The Netherlands brunch will be prepared by celebrity chef Lennise Germany, and the cocktail selection will be curated by Stephanie Miller Love of Epicurious One. The fashion show will feature Elizabeth Carson Racker Designs and Delyx Swimwear. Tampa native J’Nelle is one of R&B’s brightest young stars.
