Omni renovating Juliette’s Bistro
Breakfast and lunch will be served buffet-style and dinner will be served in a lobby function room for the rest of January at the Omni Downtown while renovation of Juliette's Bistro and the hotel's lobby are underway.

Omni General Manager Burnell Goldman said Juliette's will be transformed into an "open-air restaurant" with new floor coverings, wall treatments and furniture.

The JBar lounge also will be redesigned with softer lighting and the removal of what Goldman called "the spaceship" above the bar. White tablecloths will be part of the new décor.

"Juliette's will be more upscale," he said.

The ground floor changes are the first phase of more than $7 million in renovations planned at the hotel.

Goldman said the restaurant and lobby improvements should be completed by Feb. 1 and the hotel's more than 350 guest rooms are scheduled to be redecorated beginning later this year after Florida-Georgia weekend.

‘Tis (still) the season to be jolly at Hemming Plaza
The city’s holiday tree in Hemming Plaza was the centerpiece for the Dec. 4 First Wednesday Art Walk.
The city installed its holiday tree in Hemming Plaza before the December First Wednesday Art Walk. Mayor Alvin Brown ceremoniously lit the tree Dec. 6 during the Holiday at St. James party in the plaza.

Christmas Day was two weeks ago, Epiphany was Monday and the tree still is part of the park's landscape near the Skyway station.

Tonisha Landry-Gaines, director of the Office of Special Events, said the tree was scheduled to be taken down and removed Monday, but predictions of cold weather on Tuesday and Wednesday caused the work to be postponed.

Landry-Gaines said the ornaments and lights will be removed and the tree will be taken down by park maintenance staff and then recycled into mulch.

"We're kind of behind. We're going to make sure everything is down by Thursday," she said.
