A Brunch Date at the Vinoy St. Petersburg Florida with Family and my My Blackberry Z10

It began with a bet. The rest, as they say, is history. And what a magnificent history it’s been. From the time it opened at the dawn of 1926, to its current incarnation as one of St. Petersburg’s most spectacular waterfront resorts, this timeless treasure still impresses with its lofty pedigree, along with an ability to survive decades of neglect, winds of change and painstaking renewal. For 85 years, the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club has been – and always will be – a place to relax, play, indulge, and savor the good life.

Now celebrating its 85th anniversary, the Vinoy continues to expand upon its legacy of comfort and elegance. Just as in years past, guests can enjoy luxurious amenities designed to pamper and restore within stunning surroundings and a chance to experience unique moments for a lifetime of memories.

We decided to take my mother in law Laura to Brunch after Church this past Sunday and found our car in front of the Vinoy.  This particular place seemed the perfect setting for all of us since it has such a Jazz upbeat Big Band vibe.  We needed a respite, an oasis after losing the Patriarch of our Family this past Friday, my Father in law Emile DeCosmo  “one of the finest progressive jazz saxophonists, author, publisher and musical improvisation instructor in the world….!!!  ~ Trade Martin”  

Walking up the front Steps past the Front Porch and through the statuesque entrance you cannot help but feel flooded with nostalgic images and gentle whispers that graced the foyer of this rich landmark.

Happily greeted with a Chihuly glass display, the visual feast unfolds as we saunter through the lobby towards the big feast of a Sunday Brunch.

We visited all the Buffet tables and some more than once. We enjoyed  sipping our hot coffee/tea serenaded by a wonderful pianist tickling the ivories of a baby grand piano.

The sights, sounds, aromas and tastes came as great comforts to all of us.

I enjoyed shooting these images with my Verizon Blackberry Z10 as it is so easy to use and not imposing at all in a social public setting such as this. #VZWBuzz  #VZBlackberryZ10
