My Bloody Valentine Emo Prom

Will you go to Emo Prom with us?

We're not going to jump around or anything but we will stand around and continuously shake our head so our side bangs covering one eye will stay covering the one eye. So, what's your favorite My Chemical Romance song before you say yes?

The Poor Porker Hosts: My Bloody Valentine Emo Prom

On Friday, February 15 we will be throwing the most epic Emo Prom Florida has ever seen. We want you to dress head-to-toe in your Emo dresses and suits, lay the eyeliner on thick and don't you dare skimp out on the promposals (tag us in them!)

Someday Honey

Someday Honey is a St. Petersburg, FL 4 piece comprised of Kaleigh Baker, Matt Walker (Damon Fowler Band, Butch Trucks Freight Train Band), Mark Cunningham (Nervous Turkey) and Sam Farmer (Doug Damming and The Jewel Tones, Danfield).

“With a booming voice reminiscent of Adele, yet a songwriting sensibility that's tougher and wiser than many out there, Baker's rough-and-tumble blues mantra sizzles when you throw in her jazzy sound." -Pure Volume

We are hosting Kaleigh Baker's Someday Honey at The Poor Porker on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM!

$10 cover charge at the door.

Jill Smith is a Lakeland local who is passionate about bringing yoga to the people. This mother of two turned to yoga after experiencing postpartum depression after her second child was born, claiming yoga to be her saving grace. Though she started her journey in the nutrition arena as a Holistic Health Coach, she soon dove into studying and practicing yoga, meditation and quantum healing. She completed her yoga training with The Jaguar Path, a program that merges Shamanism healing arts with yoga and while Jill loves teaching yoga, she loves even more to empower others with the realization that they can heal their lives. To her, it's all about getting people connected to their breath, getting them to slow down, and getting them to tune into their bodies. Her students describe her as playful, loving and intuitive in regards to their needs. Her class is suitable for all levels. She will provide yoga mats to any who need one. She loves for people who are new to yoga to have a safe place to give it a try and she is excited to share this practice with you!

Class Price $15
