It should come as no surprise that Michael Novilla, St. Petersburg’s unofficial Party King, has a serious work ethic.
“I have two modes, Play Mike and Work Mike,” says the owner/operator of the hugely successful event space Nova 535. “I love to have fun, I’m very sarcastic and silly, love to goof around. But when it comes to work I kind of switch gears – I still have a lot of fun, but it’s about getting the job done. Because it’s all about the customer in the end.”
