Next month, downtown St. Pete's EDGE District plans to celebrate its eclectic identity.

Savor the EDGE, scheduled to take place from 6 to 8 p.m. April 21, will speak to what has helped shape the buzzing district's character — entertainment, dining, galleries and shops, and etcetera.

Hosted at Green Bench Brewing Co., the event will showcase specialty small plates from nine EDGE eateries. The soon-to-open Bavaro's, Brooklyn South, Cafe 1001, Bodega on Central, Red Mesa Mercado, Hawkers Asian Street Fare, Ferg's Sports Bar, Ricky P's Orleans Bistro and Kings Street Food Counter are the participants.

Green Bench will pair its signature brews and, in partnership with The Bends, beer cocktails with the grub. Savor the EDGE's "fashion stroll" is set to present stylings from five nearby boutiques alongside live music, and Kings will act as the after-party venue beginning at 9 p.m.

Tasting tickets are priced at $20 for three plates, and $30 for five. Extra a la carte tickets will also be sold on site. Proceeds from the food and beer sales will benefit the district's state and nationally accredited Main Street program, which leads its revitalization efforts.
