Tampa Bay Tailgate Taste Fest

One of the perks of living in Florida is the almost constant sunshine.  Saturday is college football day but it’s often the day families get out and spend time together.  I was extremely excited when I heard about the Tampa Bay Taste Fest.  They were showing college games in two projectors on the lawn of…

Visiting an oldie but goodie
