|Welcome New Business: Chicago Smokehouse
The culinary scene just keeps getting better with the addition of the new Chicago Smokehouse, 734 S.

Outside seating is also available. Stop in for great food and welcome owners Jon and Stephanie Weaver.
|Business Spotlight: Tarpon Springs Distillery Gramling Woods Rye Malt Whiskey, a product of Tarpon Springs Distillery, won a Double Gold Medal at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It is the largest spirits competition in the world, with more than 5,000 entries, and Double Gold is the top honor. Co-owner Barry Butler also was part of a recent ABC News feature on the Florida Distillery Trail. Time to visit and enjoy award-winning whiskey while relaxing on their outdoor back patio.
|Businesses on the Move: Gypsea Air Yoga North Safford Avenue between Downtown and the Sponge Docks is quickly becoming more vibrant with the addition of Gypsea Air Yoga to 321 N. Safford Ave. Gypsea Air has outgrown its former location at 101 W. Court St. and opened in April to a larger facility just north of Brighter Days Brewery along the Pinellas Trail. Yoga and beer anyone?!
