What's Shaking in Tallahassee this Weekend? March 7 - 9, 2008

I just have to say I'm truly enjoying these cooler Tallahassee temps. The mornings have been a bit chilly but evenings are crisp and light, perfect walking weather.

Pop some popcorn! Here's a follow up to the Tallahassee visit from the FreshBooks folks, complete with video.

And what cool stuff is on tap for the weekend? As usual, lots of things happening in and around Tallahassee. These events piqued my curiosity:

For a low-key dinner, head north to Havana for Candlelight Dining at the Mockingbird Cafe on Friday & Saturday, March 7 & 8, 6 - 9 p.m. (hope the weather holds!). Dine by twinkling candlelight while enjoying acoustic folk music. Sounds peaceful.

Military buffs will want to head over to Carrabelle for Camp Gordon Johnston Days, March 7 - 9. This is an opportunity to learn about Franklin County during WWII and meet veterans from past wars and modern-day heroes. The weekend includes swing dancing, a parade and lots of eating. Call the Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum at (850) 697-8575 or

Over at Word Traffic Books Saturday is the High School Writers' Guild 2 - 4 p.m. This is an opportunity for high schoolers to share their work. At 4 p.m. it's a launch PARTY for the book of poetry called The Moving Waters by author Mary Jane Ryals. The local award-winning author will read her poetry and sign copies of the book.
