The Specktator is thrilled to have European Street Cafe as title sponsor of the online calendar!
As one of my favorite places to eat, drink and socialize in the the city, “E. Street” (as the cool kids call it) makes the perfect partner to help promote the best events happening in the city.
NOTE: This is a “curated calendar,” meaning I have personally reviewed each event and consider it to be of interest to the general public and/or something particularly compelling. It is important to know that businesses cannot buy a calendar entry. That said, if you have an event you would like considered for the calendar or a $pon$ored feature, send the pertinent information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And by the way, be sure to change the view from “month” to “stream” below. Unless you like being really annoyed.
Climb your trucks and start your engines, Monster Jam is coming to a city near you. As one of the country’s premier live motorsport events, Monster Jam features the biggest, baddest monster trucks in the business going at it in bone-crushing races and freestyles. Despite the menacing names of the trucks, the scene at Monster Jam is decidedly friendly — each event features a “Pit Party” where fans get the chance to score autographs and memorabilia from drivers known for their humble generosity. With a record 32 trucks competing in 2014 — including fan favorites like Avenger and Double Trouble — the circuit is sure to feature more mayhem and destruction than ever before.

Catholic Charities Jacksonville provides five major programs, including Emergency Assistance. They are the largest provider of emergency financial assistance in our community.
The goal of the Emergency Assistance program is to prevent homelessness by helping families who are facing eviction or the loss of utilities due to a recent financial crisis. Short-term assistance with rent, mortgage payments, utilities, and food is provided. All proceeds raised by the Black & White Ball will support those efforts.
Last year, the Emergency Assistance program served 13,459 individuals, and distributed 135,951 pounds of food to those in need in the community.
Tickets to this event are $200 for guests. Sponsorships are still available and run from $1,000 to $20,000. Please call Nicola Barnack at (904) 899-5505 or visit www.ccbjax.org for more information.
