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 […]

Record Store Day at Mojo Books and Records

  Happy Record Store Day! Z-Bot and I decided to celebrate 2014′s version at Mojo Books and Records in Tampa. Why Mojo’s? Because inside they sell records and outside they hold a vegan bake sale. It is like Mojo had me in mind when they originally set this thing up. I stepped inside to get my fix of music first. I was most interested in picking […]

I wasn’t making a statement about how unpredictable I can be or anything, I was just being a cheap ass and selected a tea from the tea of the month list (which comes with a slight discount). Most of the time my tea of choice is fruit based. This […]

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 […]
