In the Tampa area for the week; recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I'm conscripted to be part of site visiting team auditing a state college in the area just north of Tampa. This feckless shite will persist for the week. My questions are:

1. IF (a huge "IF") I have a few hours to kill on Friday, are there any must-see guitar shops?

2. I'll have at least a couple of nights on my own for dinner.  Any recommendations (my hotel is the Residence Inn north of the city at the junction of Suncoast Pkwy and 54) for good restaurants within reasonable Uber distance?

Thanks,

Jon

I haven't been there myself, but Bern's is a nationally (at least) famous steakhouse.  Reservation and take your big wallet.

What do you like?  There is a few options toward the interstate area on 54 for food.

There has got to a Waffle House nearby, the latter you go the more interesting the visit I hear.

Prolly more lunch-oriented instead nighttime but get a genuine Cuban sandwich. It even has to have the right kind of bread.

"A plenty" is a term they use at the Beacon Drive In in Spartanburg, SC for their sandwich plates.  If they have not trademarked "a plenty" they should have since they are known for it. 

I just bring this up so we can keep our southern restaurants straight as this thread goes off on all the different food places.

Cappy’s Pizzeria  (my cousin’s place) has great food. I’ll be in Tampa next week. Looking forward to it.

Thorn's just an hour away.  I'm guessing some good "Cue" and a doobie or two could be in your future, if you really want to experience "Florida"...

He's sneaky brilliant too.  Don't kid yourself.

Don't laugh, but I've taken the capitalization of your username WAY too literally all these years.  :D

For Cuban food and sightseeing, I'd go to Ybor City.  It's been a while since I was there, but I have great memories.

I'll second Replay Guitar Exchange. Brocatos has great Cuban sandwiches and devil crabs. Babes pizza in Brandon is killer.
