Event Calendar


european_street_cafe_logo_medThe 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 whatsup@thespecktator.com.

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

From jaxevents.com

The show formerly known as Amateur Night has a new name, but it’s still the same great show. Each month The Ritz Theatre has amazing performances and electrifying music by DJ Chill Will. And you never know what to expect from show host Rahman Johnson. The liveliest audience in the south can still applaud or boo contestants as they compete for prizes. This isn’t just a talent show…it’s Puttin’ On the Ritz!
