St. Petersburg's Sawgrass Tiki Bar & Tea House and Ray's Vegan Soul are looking to bring low tea, or afternoon tea, back in style, with good food, of course. The two businesses plan to collaboratively host recurring tea gatherings at Sawgrass' Grand Central District space, and the first will be held Saturday, March 28.

After Sawgrass was involved in a Wordier Than Thou literary pub crawl around the neighborhood, many of the folks who stopped in came back and said, "Let's do a daytime thing," according to Sawgrass co-owner Susan Bridges. She said the tea events will help kickoff the bar's extended hours during the day.
