Thank you for changing the image!
Collaboration fail again. St. Pete is a community of people who spend a great deal of time making it one of the best places to live and work. While I have no issue with a new restaurant or even one that offers a shuffleboard gimmick, it is irresponsible to A) crowd fund your for-profit venture B) use the likeness of a 100 year old non-profit club to do so. This is not a good way to "make a splash" in our community.
pltctytc,wtf? All you do is troll these threads and make bullshit remarks. 329 negative comments over 6 years??? Like you know anything about restaurants...
Dude, you're a lonely little man.... get some help! No, really....
I am a member of the Board of Governors of St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, which is almost 100 years old and is supported by its more than 600 members and hundreds of volunteers. It is our club that is pictured in the story about Urban Comfort's fundraising campaign.
This is an extraordinarily misleading combination of headline and photograph. It seems to indicate that Urban Comfort is fundraising for St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club. As a non-profit sports club we are completely dependent on memberships, events, and donations to the club for our funding. We have amazing members, volunteers, and community partners that have kept the Club alive even when interest in the sport was waning. It's hard to imagine that since we just celebrated our 10-year anniversary of Friday Night Shuffle which has been a labor of love for the Club and for St. Petersburg.
Since the story is about a privately-owned company fundraising for their own endeavor, which has nothing to do with the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, I respectfully ask that you change the image in the article to one more appropriate for the story.
(btw the email address attached to your byline doesn't seem to work)
The video / image used in the campaign page are from the non-profit St. Pete Shuffleboard Club, which is directly down the street, on 559 Mirror Lake Drive N. It's pretty poor form to use your direct competition as a marketing platform for your own private business ambitions.

Thanks for the mention of Goody Goody. I just found out that the bike share location visible in this shot is the most popular one in the city. People interested in more Goody Goody news might check out Goody Goody Burgers on FB. -- Michael Kilgore, CMO, Columbia Restaurant Group

Isn't it on the 12th?
You peel them? Weird.
Thank you so much for the media mention! I love my wire works and am delighted to be showing at Pom-Pom's. I have to say that it's really got the perfect menu and I'm excited to eat there, too! Aut viam inveniam aut faciam (I'll either find a way or make one).
I was actually just curious about where the quote came from. Though I agree with the quote 100%... I actually never said that. Lol
But it's business, so I'm sure it came from a p.r. Writer.
At any rate, thank you again for the amazing write up. Maybe next year we can get Creative Loafing more involved!
Calm down "Warspeed" I was saying thanks!
I appreciate the right up!
Hey Jeremy, CL got a press release on the event from the Florida State Fair Authority with a quote from you in it, so that's what our reporter means by "in the release."
