Start on 2017
The Tampa Bay Lightning's quest for the Stanley Cup starts again! We are kicking it off with one of our signature bar crawls to support the Bolts and get everyone back into hockey fever! :). Wear ur fav BLUE LIGHTNING JERSEY OR GEAR & show ur team support
The best airport in America. I don't care if the ratings say it's #2 SCREW YOU PORTLAND BOOOOO
Pros: Convenient, easy to get around, tremendous local food options, baggage gets there fast, lots of coffee.
Cons: It will make you hate every other airport once you land. Yeah, I'm talking to you LaGuardia and Philly. Go kick rocks you frozen totems of inefficiency and poor planning.
Great beer bar with a ton of selection in a comfortable atmosphere.
Pros: Great location and knowledgeable bartenders!
Cons: Gotta order food from somewhere else, and it can be a pain to park.
Grilled cheese & beer. That's most of the menu. Yes, it's as good as it sounds. Terrific little downtown neighborhood haunt that's comfortable & delicious!
Pros: I mean grilled cheese and beer. What else do you need?
Cons: It's not open 24/7... how good would this be at like 5am??
I don't even live in Orlando anymore, but the lake is a beautiful place. They did one helluva job with a glorified rentention pond. Orange County budget surpulses FTW!
Pros: The swan boats, all the places to eat, and the easy way to count your running mileage when making the loop.
Cons: It can be a pain to park, and our non-housed friends can sometimes make it a bit awkward or dirty. But
One of best places in town to grab a beer, meet some folks, play games (shoutout the game with the metal ring and the hook!), and just generally love the fact you're in St. Pete. It's wonderful.
Pros: Crazy fun games, great beer, wonderful people, both indoor and outdoor things to do. It's like Hop Nirvana.
Cons: Unless they're going to deliver a party and quality brews like this to my house... I can't think of anything wrong
(random people chanting while on defense and moving their arms goes here)
Pros: History. Tradition. Willie Taggart's recruiting.
Cons: Aluminum bench seats everywhere. It's a pain to park. Lousy food options. A quarterback that doesn't match the offense involved. Slow linebackers that can't fly to the ball. Willie T will get it fixed, but they're a disaster for now.
The home of legends. Even if you don't love NASCAR (I'm not a huge fan), everyone should come check out this hallowed ground.
Pros: It's really cool to see the evolution of auto racing from the beaches of Daytona to the asphalt of today.
Cons: I mean they only race two weeks in the winter and one in the summer, plus some smaller races that don't mean as much.
A terrific, old-school traditional cocktail bar. Great location and clientele, and some delicious libations too!
Pros: Wonderful drinks, atmosphere, and location.
Cons: Can get a bit pricey and crowded depending on the evening.
My favorite mini golf course as a kid, and likely still now. Plus they don't care if you move from 18 right back to the first tee.
Pros: Really fun course, even if you don't love Disneyana stuff. Plus it's in a great location near Swan/Dolphin/EPCOT so good for the adults.
Cons: Standard "Disney is too expensive" goes here, but it's pretty reasonable for a loop here.
This place is great and the food and drinks are delicious, but be prepared for the loud music. They've got a DJ spinning while you're eating, and it can get a bit noisy. But if you're looking for fun, food, and booze, it's terrific.
Pros: Great deals (their $2 Taco Tuesday is legendary in Tampa), and don't miss the Margaronas.
Cons: Not exactly a first date place when the DJ is spinning.
Why am I reviewing this place, when I don't want anyone that doesn't know about it already to be there??
Pros: In the middle of Hyde Park/SoHo, we need a place for those of us that live there. For those that can walk to the bar and hang with our friends.
Cons: You might read this and come. At least know someone there before you show up, don't think of this as an invitation. A true locals bar is hard to find around these parts. Except for Tiny Tap. But who can do that every day?
A great place to have an event in Tampa Bay! Wonderful raw space with plenty of exposed brick, and a perfect courtyard for indoor-outdoor events. Plus full AV/lighting that you'll need for a wedding or something else.
Pros: Convenient location and everything you need for a terrific event space.
Cons: Can be a bit tricky to park, but it's only a block walk.
Reviewing the poker room only: It's really big, and the poker room is one of the best in the Southeast. Also, it's huge. Did I mention it's big? Also the snack bar is one of the best I've seen in a poker room.
Pros: Tons of places to play, lots of ABC poker is profitable at 2-5 and below.
Cons: $2 jackpot drop is lame sauce. Also let me turn my chair around even when I'm not getting a massage.
