Longest Table Event Brings Together Restaurants, Diners to Raise Money for WUSF
For St. Petersburg residents Phil and Jennie Crane it was Mise en Place's seared duck breast with foie gras that lured them waterside for dinner. And for James Spencer, president of Core Investment Management in Clearwater, it was affection for WUSF, as well as a friendship with restaurateur Steve Westphal that brought him and friends to the Parkshore Grill's table.
ST. PETERSBURG - Joggers and cyclists on Bayshore Drive craned their necks. Was it a wedding, a bar mitzvah? Set squarely in the middle of the street, the fancy white-clothed dinner tables adorned with aqua blue runners were part of the first-ever Longest Table event Thursday evening to benefit WUSF.
