Wordless Wednesday: Spring Training 2011

My day job allows me access to pretty cool things. Yesterday, we coordinated the media lunch for the Tampa Bay Rays pre-spring training press conference. I think it went pretty well. On a personal level, I’d like to thank Lock ‘n Key Restaurant of Englewood, Place in the Sun Vacation Rentals and In Your Face Cupcakes of Punta Gorda for “bringing a dish to pass” for this event.

The food was AMAZING! The lunch was well received and in the PR world it’s best to make friends while feeding tummies good food and company.

Enjoy these snapshots from the day and if planning a trip to Port Charlotte for spring training, check out my tips for planning a visit.
