The St. Petersburg City Council unanimously approved a plan clearing the way for an affordable housing development in the Pasadena Bear Creek area.
City Council approval came after a nearly five-hour hearing Thursday night. Dozens of neighborhood residents spoke against the development, most of them saying it was not compatible with the character of the area and would damage property values.
Nate Najar and Daniela Soledade began their Friday-evening virtual concert series “Love and Bossa Nova” in late March. To date, the dynamic jazz duo has performed – for the camera – 22 times, from their downtown balcony or (when it was raining) living room.
There have been exceptions, of course. Once they and their socially-distanced band played in an empty thestudio@620. Just for something new. And when they went on vacation to the Blue Ridge Mountains, they brought all their livestreaming gear and broadcast a concert from the hotel room.
