Taste of South Tampa 2014

Living in Florida so rocks.  Especially being right outside of Tampa, they have SO many great things going on all of the time.  You need yet another example?  How about Taste of South Tampa coming up April 13th at Hyde Park Village?

It’s a chance to sample offerings from a variety of local restaurants, breweries and lots more.  Keely & Curley Winery is going to be there!  I love their blueberry wines. Actually I went to a tour there once and they have a lot more than just blueberry wines! There’s also going to be coffee brewers, beer brewers, pizzerias, grills, it sounds like a little bit of everything.

One place I’m excited to learn more about is The Florida Cane Distillery. They make micro-distilled vodkas entirely of Florida ingredients. How cool is that? Check out these Florida flavors!

I think you should go.  So do the folks at Taste of Tampa, they gave me 2 general admission tickets to give away!

I received two tickets to the Taste of South Tampa 2014 in exchange for writing a review and this giveaway.  As always, my opinions are all mine.

Perfect Sunday Stroll

I took the dogs for a walk over at Starkey this morning, the weather could not be better today.  The mutts had such an exciting time they were more riled up for a while after the walk than before it – talk about a back fire. But they are mellowed out now, yay 5 minutes of peace!

For the first time in memory we were able to get over the little walking bridge, lately it’s always washed sideways.  That gave us two options, the road or the bridge. I chose neither since the dogs have to walk in tandem, but they headed over the bridge without a problem. Yes, the picture on the right is the road!

ChoicesThe mutts were happy because we passed about 10 other dogs and a couple of horses.  Not to mention the fact that we heard something big right off the path in the bushes (maybe a squirrel, maybe a mountain lion, who can say?).  If that wasn’t enough while we were walking on the narrow path back a bird ran right under their noses from one side of the path to the other flapping it’s wings and squawking like crazy.  I’m pretty certain the dogs thought it was the BEST walk ever.

I had fun too, if they care.  Florida can definitely have a zen like beauty!
