I write and edit things I hope you find useful and awesome in the 813 & 727!
Start on 2017
So here's the thing: it's in the middle of the most Touristy Place on Earth: but the food (and drinks) are actually pretty great, and they support local artists as you can buy their wares. It's based on a 19th Century Spanish artists loft, and that shows through in all they do. Just try and forget you're on I-Drive, and you'll really appreciate it.
Pros: Great tapas and drinks, and wonderful artists.
Cons: You're on I-Drive, so the options before or after that aren't mini golf, shopping, or screaming children are really limited.
Best bar before a Bolts game, and it's not close. They've optimized the space to ensure there are plenty of places to get a beer when it's crowded. These include tents, tubs, bars, and random people walking around with even more. Food is also strong, and they do a quick lunch as well.
Pros: Great location, great music when it's live, fun atmosphere.
Cons: Getting there on concert/Bolts game days. Take an Uber or park somewhere else and walk. Trust me.
Some really, really good tacos made with fresh ingredients. Also like that your order is on paper so you can fill it out as you'd like. But don't sleep on the drinks: they are delicious, especially anything with tequila!
Pros: Fresh as can be, and all served with a lime to add extra flavor!
Cons: It can get a little loud in there on the right day.
The most beautiful beach in Florida, possibly in the United States, maybe on earth, and thus likely in the universe.
Pros: It's gorgeous with sugar white sand, perfect waters, flawless sunsets, and plenty of tiny haunts nearby that serve delicious food & drinks... including lots of fresh seafood.
Cons: So many people doing weddings on Friday & Saturday nights you might have your guests watching the special day of another bride and groom several hundred yards away.
Real, fresh Italian food in Ybor City. Chef Jamie cooks like an Italian with a lifetime spent in the kitchen, which is exactly what he is. There's so few places to get "real" Italian (i.e. not boxed pasta, low-simmered sauces, Pecorino cheese) in Tampa, but this is one of them. And in a fun location!
Pros: If you don't see it, they'll make it. Also a walk-up soup and salad bar.
Cons: I can't go for lunch every day or I'd weigh 350 pounds.
The hottest New Year’s Eve party in Tampa is at Club Prana! Celebrate NYE 2018 with a bang featuring 5 parties in 1 at Tampa Bay's only 5 level night club.

The greatest college bar in the history of the world. And no one should ever doubt this. Get the Joey Drink.
Pros: Tons of TV's for watching games. Cheap drinks and food.
Cons: Some of the darts players in their tournaments are so good you have no chance.
