The Hall on Franklin honors local, “fierce” women with weekly parties

Popular Tampa destination The Hall on Franklin is asking local Tampa Bay women to submit their personal testimonies  and honoring them with a party on Saturday nights. The parties surround “Fierce Women” and how they relate to the newest cocktail names.

The honoree shows up with her friends as a way to thank them for their impact on local communities, friends, and family. The Hall received 26 submissions within the first hours of launching. The first woman to be celebrated for the first Fierce Woman Party Saturday, November 30th is Sydnie.

Sydnie’s application:

“What drink best represents YOUR story?:
I Feel No Pain
Please tell us a little about how this drink represents you a Fierce Woman of Tampa Bay:
2019 has been a rocky year for me. I lost my father in August, lost my job in November, my boyfriend and I broke up 2 weeks ago, and today my grandmother had a stroke. “I Feel No Pain” is the drink I want to represent because it will be how I live out 2020. While pain is good to feel, I hope through all of mine this year, I can become a stronger FIERCER woman. I have been learning through these tough experiences in my life and growing stronger daily. I hope to take my experiences and help other people who have gone through the same experiences.”
Ro Patel and The Collection Bar bartenders created traditional drinks with names like “Kissed by a Rose” to “Sweet but Psycho. The Hall hopes to attract a lot of Fierce Women and their stories. Everyone is encouraged to come out every Saturday and celebrate with the honoree. All impactful and diverse submissions are encouraged.
” Everyday we are all supported by the fierce women in our lives. Sometimes we should ask ourselves who is supporting and honoring these stoic warriors. It’s a small thing, but letting us toast and honor your hard work, beautiful personalities, and warrior spirit for one night is our way of lifting you up.  We genuinely want to say thank you for all you do in our communities and in your own personal lives,” says The Hall on Franklin owner Jamal Wilson.
