event_WP

Regal Movie Theaters may be closing across Tampa Bay,but true theatre venues are just starting to open up. And as COVID-19 concerns limit attendance – events are becoming even more exclusive.

Exclusive Events

Sarasota Opera is leading the way – presenting filmed as live opera events like Sleeping Beauty and Madame Butterfly in limited engagements. The company’s annual fall Taste of Downtown fundraiser for the Youth Opera programs shifted gears to a discount card, allowing several options for fine dining and nights out.

Nothing will stop the Opera House’s annual Opera Gala, celebrating the opening of the Winter Festival. Guests can safely enjoy a cocktail hour, silent auction, a spectacular three course dinner, a special performance by our Principal Artists, and live music for dancing come January 24.

And the annual Salute to the Stars Awards Luncheon will return as scheduled in March at the Sarasota Yacht Club.

Live Theatre

The Sarasota Polo Club & the Historic Asolo Theater are both presenting live shows to limited, masked audiences. Come dressed to the nines with an appropriately stylish face covering and enjoy the best live theater – properly distanced, and for the Polo Club, outdoors.

Black Tie Affairs

Both the Ringling Museum and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are now open to the public. Selby will host their annual black tie gala, The Orchid Ball, in April of 2021. No official word yet, but you can be sure they’re planning ahead for their Lights in Bloom holiday exhibits, culminating, of course, with the annual black-tie New Year’s Eve celebration at the gardens.

Sarasota has long been a bastion of elite cultural and social activities. And this year is no exception. Sold out crowds have taken on a new meaning as safety measures have been implemented. But what better time to make going out extra special?

Here at Blue Ribbon Transportation, we stand at the ready to make your special night perfect. Ride in style to a gala, or explore several night life adventures from the comfort of a well-maintained, clean, classic limousine. We’ve got you covered – all you have to do is call!
