Events so unique they defy category

Gulfport, FL 33707

Nope, that is not a typo up there, it is a silent disco. Admission gets you a set of headphones and a full pour of your favorite pint. Not liking what one DJ is spinning? Choose from three DJs to take you on a musical adventure, and dance like no one is watching.  


This Labor Day in Tampa dance, eat, drink, or dress up like gecko. Whichever way you go, it’s going to be better than working. So soak up some sun, live the good life, and say so-long to summer … until next year.
