Events


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, send the pertinent information to whatsup@thespecktator.com.

And by the way, be sure to change the view from “month” to “stream” below. Unless you like being really annoyed.

Downtown Community Cleanup @ Lavilla's United Voice
Nov 17 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Downtown Community Cleanup @ Lavilla's United Voice | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

From event organizer:

The Downtown Community Cleanup Project will invite every neighborhood organization and cleanup group in the city of Jacksonville to come together for LaVilla. If you’ve been asked to host this event, please accept it and help spread the word. We need as much help as we can get.

The Downtown Community Cleanup Project and the Fight Blight crew will provide enough trash bags, gloves, and tools for everyone, but feel free to bring your own.

Downtown Vision, Inc.’s amazing staff has Volunteered to help out on their day off! (((ROUND OF APPLA– USE))) I* will post photos of problem areas leading up to the event with a location so feel free to prepare for those specific areas (some need shovels and rakes) or just bring yourself, and we’ll tell you where to go.

From 9 AM – 4 PM every group in the DIA will meet at Lavilla’s United Voice at 311 W. Ashley St. From there we will focus on rehabilitating State and Union St and moving to adjacent designated neighborhoods. There are thousands of pounds of trash that needs to be removed. Together, it’s nothing.

In fact, I* bet we can move at least 2,500 pounds of trash in one Saturday.

Monday Night Trivia With The Specktator @ European Street Cafe—Riverside | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

Lots of restaurants and bars have trivia. But only a chosen few (three to be exact) have The Specktator as host.

In addition to obscure questions, Trivia With The Specktator features musical interludes from local musicians and, if you’re lucky, The 30-Second Dance Party.

Top three teams win gift cards from European Street Cafe. Extended happy hour for players (people playing trivia, that is). And ask your server about late-night happy hour.

Did we mention E. Street won Best Local Trivia in the Folio Weekly Best of Jacksonville Readers Poll in 2017? Because we did.
