TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Business is usually pretty quiet after the normal Legislative session ends and with college students going home before the fall semester starts back up. But with a recent session called to redraw the Congressional District maps, quiet is out of the question.

"Session in Tallahassee is just as important as FSU football," said John Sweede, Vice President of the Tallahassee Hospitality Group. "It brings a lot of energy and a lot people to Tallahassee and last night, for Wine Down at the Mint Lounge, we definitely saw a great crowd come in. So, they're back and it feels good."
