Creative Mornings Tampa Bay

Vertical Ventures 116 18th Street South, St. Pete

Vertical Ventures hosts Creative Mornings Tampa Bay. Our theme for April is SPICY.  When you’re cooking, spices add flavor, depth, and complexity to an otherwise plain culinary dish. Spicy foods interact with receptors in our mouth and can trigger sensations of heat and even pain. Can you handle it? Being open to trying new and bold tastes is a good lesson for bringing daring and originality into all of our creative endeavors.

Such “spicy takes” often challenge conventional beliefs and ignite strong, passionate reactions from people. So, how can you make your work and approach to life spicier?  Let’s bring the heat!
