  • Florida: Three Major Destinations

    Tampa

    In October 2017, the crew headed to old haunts in Tampa to revel with fellow Mama Guava Stumblers in Tampa’s historic Ybor City.  The festival is now known as Guavaween.

    Before the Real Trouble Is that Buccaneer Beer?

     

    We’ve posted a very small sample of the craziness we saw.  This event has grown to the size and feel of a small Mardi-Gras (complete with bead currency).  I was here about 10 years ago, and it was simply a glorified pub crawl.  Now, whole streets are cordoned off and stages set up for big band entertainment.  We had the dubious pleasure of catching Blue Oyster Cult in action.

     

     

    The next day, the weather was beautiful, and the crew hooked up with Barbee and headed off to Raymond James Stadium using a Florida car rental to watch the World Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers crush the upstart Dallas Cowboys.

But I have to admit that one of my favorite establishments is White Castle. Miniature steamed burgers, fed-up employees and sleazy customers – what a terrific combination.

    Since you can find White Castle almost anywhere in the South, I’ll mention my other favorite Cincinnati hangouts – the Blind Lemon in Mount Adams and the S.S. Adventurer Steamboat.

    Mount Adams is quaint, cozy, Cincinnati hip, pedestrian-friendly, varied – the neighborhood attracts a younger crowd looking for entertainment. We’ve spent several chilly nights hanging out by the outdoor fire pit at the Blind Lemon. Next door is a restaurant that is always packed with people. We also enjoyed the jazz bar farther up the street.

    Eden Park is quiet and idyllic. Folks jog, walk with their dogs, play with their children and lounge on the lawns. The park is also home to the Cincinnati Art Museum. The museum maintains permanent collection as well as temporary exhibits. Even though we weren’t huge fans, we enjoyed a Jasper
