Where We Eat: Green Mint Asian Grill

I’m not one to be bogged down by the supernatural or anything but a few weeks ago I was at one of those parties where everyone wears a face cover and chants strange things into their neighbor’s ear when this lady in dark satin floated over and whispered  “Green Mint Asian Grill” so that only I could hear it. Before I could catch her name, she vanished into […]

Where We Eat: The Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House

“From the death of the old the new proceeds, and the life of truth from the death of creeds.” -John Greenleaf Whittier In 1961, a once illustrious sugar mill standing adjacent to Deleon Springs was at the brink of demolition. The “old building” had been vacant for some time and many people were ready to see it go. But, as John Greenleaf Whittier suggested above, out of […]

Where We Eat: Cigar City Brewpub

Every day after I’m done teaching I load onto a bus with six other raucous kids and am transported over to a martial arts practice center. Here I am part of a jujitsu group. I am the lowest member on the totem pole. There are kindergarten kids who can jui-jitsu better than me. This weekend we had a competition. Afterwards our best jui-jitsuer, Cassie, her friend […]

Wishing You All TheBesty

If you’ve vacationed south recently (like to the bottom of this website) you probably noticed the new setup of my favorite restaurants courtesy of TheBesty. TheBesty is a website designed to help people discover the best restaurants and dishes in a particular city (doesn’t matter if it is home or away). These lists are created by food bloggers, travelers, even common people like yourself. Anyone can make a […]

Where We Eat: Caribbean Crown and Pujol

My wife’s boss has been harping on me, through her, for years about eating Jamaican food. He insisted that I give it a try. I have largely ignored his suggestions, namely because the one time I had Jamaican food was at this “fast food” type shack that played loud reggae music. I found the food to be too sweet and boring. I changed my tune a bit […]

Where We Eat: Capital Tacos

I was visiting Sugar and Spice Daycare last week attempting to enroll my new pet calf Lucy (oddly enough, they wouldn’t even consider her for the waiting list). When we reached the parking lot on our way out we were nearly run over by an out of control car. It came to a screeching to a halt a few inches from Lucy’s front hoof. Out […]

Kaleisia’s 9th Annual Gifts of Love

You’d be hard pressed to find a Tampa restaurant that is as invested in the community as Kaleisia Tea Lounge. For the past nine years the tea lounge has hosted an event called Gifts of Love. The premise behind the event is to raise money for a local non-profit (100 percent of all the proceeds raised at the event goes to the non-profit). This year’s […]

Where We Eat: Stacy’s Gluten Free Goodies

If you live in Tampa, are suffering from a sweet tooth and aren’t down with the dairy it can be very difficult to find something decent to satisfy your craving. There is the carrot cake at Trang Viet and…well, not much else. About a year ago I started hearing rumblings about this small bakery right up the street from me called Stacy’s Gluten Free Goodies. […]

Where They Eat: Yellowbellys of Bailgate and Vx

Those who spend a lot of their time shuttling back and forth between two locales that are quite a distance apart understand the importance of finding food that floats your vegan fancy in both places. Otherwise your left with a virtually impossible scenario. Take it from me, two hours for a deep dish pizza is a bit much (though Satchel’s is totally worth it). For […]
