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.

Fred's All-Star Comedians @ Comedy Zone | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

FUN FACT: The Comedy Zone’s menu includes seared salmon, bruschetta chicken and sirloin steak. And if you’re not that fancy, don’t worry: They have nachos and wings too.
