Love this fountain! June 8th, 2012. USA played Antigua & Barbuda. USA won 3-1.
This was my first time at a professional soccer game of any kind. Although it poured about half the time, and the other time it just rained, it was very much worth it. The electricity in the crowd is unlike any other sporting event I've been to. For 90 minutes people are on their feet chanting USA, Dempsey, etc. If you get the chance and like sports of any kind I would highly recommend going, I can say I will be finding other USA games wherever they are and going in the future. Afternoon of BBQ party well spent on this part of Tampa. Egg, cheese, onion and ham on a jalapeno cheddar bagel from the Great American Bagel Bakery. This place is amazing. Sunset at Cypress Local coffee done right. Buddy Brew is the best local coffee brew in town. GO PACK GO Picking our son Greg and his bride Xu at Tampa Airport and saw this beat glass print of life size Tunas. I like Newcastle beer despite regardless of tap size, but it can't hurt to try and get an edge. One of the best stadiums in the NFL... One of two area locations, this authentic Cuban café is as good as Miami Cuban food. Served cafeteria style with all the usual favorites. The tamales are especially good. Spring time is here yet!! Nice day at the bucs game in Raymond James stadium Gator Ice Sculpture in August on Gators Pub Crawl in early August in preparation for the upcoming football season. Ice didn't last long in Florida summer. Great outdoor clothing, shoes, camping, hiking items. Check the sales racks. Come to Publix's upscale grocery store, this is their organic brands store. This is original location of an excellent regional chain that offers all types of BBQ: ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, turkey, and sausage. Also has great sides and variety of sauces. However, only compact car parking at this location.
