Ahoy Matey! It’s a Gasparilla Season once again and, this year, the city of Tampa will have some special guests. In addition to the usual marauding of local pirates, Tampa plays host to the NHL’s All-Star Game at the Amalie Arena. You can join us for an All-Star Porch Party at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 28.

Main dishes for this event will be an array of all-star chili. Do you make an award-winning chili? Killer Corn bread? Maybe a mean loaded baked potato? Bring a friend, a dish and an appetite for good conversation and this classic comfort food.

Volunteer opportunities available. Call 813.222.2299 for more info. Email Chalette@theportico.org to volunteer a main dish or join our Porch Party team!

All are welcome. All are loved.

>> This event is immediately following the Hyde Park United Methodist worship service in The Community Hall. All are welcome to join this worship service beginning at 5:30 p.m. <<
