Electro Aerial Show: Want to add a little excitement to your normal night out drinking? Market Street Gainesville has you covered Saturday night, when the venue will have acrobats performing aerial bartending. A live jazz band will play with the aerial performance, which starts at 8 p.m. When else can you be served your drink from a bartender hanging from the ceiling?
Gameday Bags: In case you haven’t heard, game days are going to be a little different this year about what you can and can’t bring into the stadium. UF has implemented a clear-bag policy for this season, meaning regular backpacks and purses will no longer be allowed. Since a plastic bag isn’t the most stylish accessory, Little Earth Productions has created a line of clear, stadium-approved bags that are fashionable and show some Gator Pride at the same time. They come in various styles, including an envelope purse and a crossbody bag, all featuring the Gator head logo. To check them out, go to littlearth.com.
