Can you believe it’s already December!? Where did the year go? It’s like they always say, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” And, trust us, this month is going to fly by too, because there’s more fun to be had here at PCI before the year is out.

Of course our pine is flanked by palms- this is PCI!

Join us Saturday, December 3rd for our Holiday Celebration and 2nd Anniversary. We’re offering everyone a little holiday cheer by making this event open to the public. If you missed that Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting “spectacular,” no worries- we’ve got your merriment covered. Our towering Christmas tree will be lit here on the garden patio for one and all.  Yes, come marvel, one and all.

Events need entertainment. This is a fact. Since they put on such an amazing show last year, we’ve invited back Entertainment Revue. These performers may be young, but their talent is undeniable. Their professional-style show includes song and dance acts that would even put Mr. Grinch himself in the holiday spirit.

If you’re not thoroughly convinced yet that “It’s a Wonderful Life,” there’s more in store! Santa will be in attendance and available for photos, interviews, and all of the usual celeb stuff. If you’re thirsty, there will be hot chocolate all around, as well as a cash bar featuring the brand new Beachwood bourbon. We’re also presenting a cozy fireside movie in our garden courtyard.

Since we’re getting excitingly close to Christmas, we’re giving you naughty ones the opportunity to get on Santa’s nice list. We’re teaming with Kids Charity of Tampa Bay, Inc. for a special clothing drive to give back to the community and help our less fortunate little ones. We’re especially looking for donations of socks, underwear, and PJ’s for children ages 5 to 7, but any kids’ clothing item is much appreciated!

All this festive fun is scheduled from 5PM to 8PM, but you can keep the party going at PCI Beach Bar until 2AM. If you’re looking to really make a night of it, we still have rooms available that even Mr. Scrooge would call a good deal!
