Cowen Reception and Dinner - Thursday, February 27, 5 pm (included in registration)
Columbia Restaurant was founded in 1905 by Cuban immigrant Casimiro Hernandez Sr. in Ybor City, which was at the time the cigar manufacturing capital of the world. From its beginnings as a little café frequented by local cigar workers, it is now the largest Spanish restaurant in the world with 1,600 seats in sixteen rooms, each of which has a completely different décor and ambience. You might want to ask for a tour before you're seated so you can admire the art and the beautiful and antique azuleros.

Salvador Dali Museum, Saturday, March 1, 2pm - 5:30 pm ($32)

Visit the world's most comprehensive collection of works by the late Spanish surrealist. Come see why the Michelin Guide gave us the only three star rating on Florida's west coast, and AOL Travel News lists the museum as "One of the top buildings you have to see before you die."

Located on a scenic waterfront site in downtown St. Petersburg, Fla., the 68,000-square-foot structure doubles the size of the original 1982 Dali Museum, a one-story warehouse. Exhibits include oils, watercolors, sketches, sculptures and other works from a 2,140-piece permanent collection. Photo Gallery

Treasure Island Beach, Saturday, March 1, 12:30 - 4 pm ($20)  

March is a wonderful month to dig your toes in the soft sandy beaches of Treasure Island, Florida.  Treasure Island beaches are, in a way, neighborhoods, each with a different character and feel.

There are three different beach neighborhoods for your enjoyment. Along the mid-island stretch of Treasure Island that you'll find the .85 mile paved Treasure Island Beach Trail, perfect for walking, skateboarding and bicycling. At either end of the island, with John's Pass to the north and Blind Pass to the south, the beaches are narrower yet no less beautiful. Finding your quiet spot on Treasure Island is easy - there's nearly four miles of beaches.
