Trigger Warning

It's Complicated… is a Valentine's Day celebration for anyone and everyone. Single, married, engaged, divorced, dating or just friends; whatever your status, whatever your preference, you are welcome to dine, dance, and drum with us!   This year's event will feature "North Florida's Matriarch of Music", Gina Martinelli on her Steinway piano during the champagne mix and mingle. Dinner in the magical garden will feature the music of Complicated Animals. Their unique Indie Nova style incorporates indie pop with a bossa nova groove perfect for celebrating love and life! This will be one of their last shows in Florida before moving to Los Angeles at the end of February. First set: 7:30ish-8:15ish.   Second set: 9:00ish-9:30 Dessert is to be enjoyed at your leisure at either the indoor chocolate fondue station or outdoor smore station located conveniently next to the crackling fire. Dessert beverages will include warm apple cider, hot coco and coffee.  We will close the night by going a little tribal as we circle around the fire for a drum and jam session. You may either bring an instrument of your own (it doesn't have to be a drum) or borrow one from the music studio's collection.
