Brews, sports and cigars make for an epic weekend adventure in Tampa Bay, Florida.
It’s that time of year, the annual trip with the guys. And it’s finally my turn to pick the destination, but where to go? Given our motley group’s shared love for good beers and good times, I figured it was time to take over Tampa Bay. It’s got everything we’re looking for in a weekend adventure.
About 20 minutes after leaving the airport, we’re checking in at the Hilton Tampa Downtown. I feel right at home here. I’ve got just enough time to hit the gym and take a swim in the outdoor, heated pool before it’s time to get cleaned up and head out for the evening. Tonight’s agenda? A Tampa Bay Lightning game at Amalie Arena, just a few blocks away. The sun is shining and we decide to hoof it to the game. I hear good things about Hattricks, a local sports bar, which is conveniently right around the corner, so we head there to get our pre-game grub on.
Fierce as lightning
“Hear good things” doesn’t exactly cover it for the wings at Hattricks.
