ST. PETERSBURG, FL, Oct. 13, 2014 — Out of the Weeds, a new line of artisan dressings and sauces made fresh in the Tampa Bay region, makes it official debut with a VIP Champagne Party 6-7 pm Thursday, Oct. 23, at Three Birds Tavern, 1492 Fourth St. N. in St. Petersburg.
The VIP hour is by invitation only, but will be immediately followed by a launch party open to the public, starting at 7 pm that night. Admission is free.
The event will include:
Handcrafted cocktails, beer and wine
Artisan appetizers, many featuring the new dressings
Give-aways, recipes and raffles
Three Birds has been making salad dressings in house for more than four years, and now diners are able to enjoy these same dressings in their own homes. Out of the Weeds selections include Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette, Roasted Beet Vinaigrette and Carrot Ginger. More products are in the works.
The sauces are produced and bottled by the Sauceology Group in Clearwater. The bottling company is owned by Michele Northrup and Tom Was of Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces in Tampa.
“It was very important to me to partner with the right team for manufacturing and bottling, and I found that with a local company,” says Robin King, who owns Three Birds Tavern and Out of the Weeds with her husband, Jack King. “ I’ve been watching Michele Northrup and Tom Was of Intensity Academy since I arrived in Florida in 2009, and have respected everything about how they do business, so the match was perfect.”
The dressings are offered at $8 each or $20 for the three-pack at Three Birds Tavern, 1492 Fourth St. N. in St. Petersburg and online a OutOfTheWeeds.com. Out of the Weeds will make its first market appearance at this year’s Shopapalooza Festival, Saturday Nov. 22 at South Straub Park in downtown St. Petersburg.
