So you can imagine my excitement as I was checking out my friends' Facebook pages researching story ideas and stumbled across a picture of my friend Caroline and her husband Andres at a cool place in Tampa, called Painting With a Twist.

I called up Painting With a Twist and got to chat with one of the owners, Marvin Gay (yes, that's his real name!). He and his wife, Leslie, own both the St. Petersburg and Tampa locations (there are franchises in several Floria cities, including Tallahassee, Pensacola and soon Orlando!) and they were more than happy to share the awesome details about the place that is quickly turning into the newest local hot spot.

I saw and advertisement recently for a new business opening up in Tampa called Painting with a Twist. The concept is way fun and super cool. I immediately wanted to sign up for a class but never quite had the time between Rock Boating and recovering from Rock Boating. Well, a couple of days ago I saw that they were hosting a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay and they were calling it Painting with a Purpose. And then I saw what we would be painting.
