This past weekend, the Creative Loafing Street Team was out and about doing what we do best: promoting Creative Loafing, interacting with readers and giving out free stuff! We have a lot of exciting events to promote—from this month’s Restaurant Week to the upcoming Crafts & Drafts event in November—and what better way to do that then by chatting with readers and giving away swag?

In addition to the regular CL logo items (awesome, high-quality totes and totally car-worthy stickers), a handful of lucky locals spun the prize wheel and landed on Tampa Improv tickets, 22 Jump Street screening passes and some sweet posters and tees promoting Seth MacFarlane’s new film, A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Our first stop this weekend was Saturday’s Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo at the Museum of Science and Industry. We got to interact with folks wanting to learn more about hurricane preparedness,

had a lot of little ones take a spin on the wheel, and got the paper into the hands of tons of new readers! Oh, and did I mention the panel of meteorologists? A weatherman (or woman) from nearly every station in the area was in attendance at this event! There was so much going on and so much to see.

On Sunday, we loaded up all of the CL gear and set up at the Sweetwater Organic Farm Sunday Market (be

sure to keep an eye out for our new red tent at upcoming events!). What an amazing way to spend a Sunday: mouthwatering organic vegan and vegetarian fare, local gardening experts, fresh produce, live music and handmade crafts galore! The CL totes were definitely a favorite among market attendees—it wasn't long before the bags were filled with fresh, local, colorful, homegrown produce! Next Sunday is the last chance to catch the Sunday Market for the season, and you definitely won’t want to miss it.

Stay tuned for what the Street Team will be up to this weekend, and don’t forget to check back weekly for blog posts from this point on!
