Visit 7th sun brewery in Dunedin. I don't live there but have family nearby. My favorite brewery in that area.

Where are you staying? I'm in Lakeland but spend time in Tampa. You like art/museums? Food/drink/beer? Etc?

Don't live there but if you're looking for some good beers, Cycle Brewing is in St. Petersburg and Cigar City is in Tampa.

Do yourself a favor and book your Bern's reservation ASAP. You should be able to get a table during at some point during the week.

Yes.



I'll look into it.
Ooh you'll be in New Tampa area off Bruce B Downs. Luckily for you, Mr.Dunderbak's is not too far from your hotel. Neither is 4 Rivers Smokehouse .

Both are a "must".

I highly recommend the new ramen restaurant "Ichicoro". It's not far from New Tampa, probably 20 minute ride.

Most of the interesting museums are on the St.Pete side (like the Dali, for instance).

Problem with the New Tampa area is the traffic and distance from the beach. It may be worthwhile to get a rental car for maybe a day or two instead of Ubering everywhere.

And yes , Cigar City brewing is definitely a must as well.

This is almost exactly what I would have said.

The Dali is a pretty nice museum, even aside from the art in it. I like the room of his personal stuff, he was a weird dude. If you want some good wings at a sports bar, Hattrick's is my fav. I get them naked with dry rub but they are pretty good any way you like 'em. That place is full but usually pretty good atmosphere on game days. Lots of Steelers fans there on Sundays.

Cigar city has a tasting room, which is really a fancy name for a bar, at the original brewery location and they have s brew pub with great food but it's in North Tampa/Clearwater area I think. I was drunk when I was taken there and more drunk when I left so I'm not really sure where it's at.

Unless you're a beach lover, skip the beach. It's super crowded on sunny weekends and not exactly clean. Clearwater and ft Desoto are the best beaches around, IMO, but both are 30+ min drive - more if traffic sucks.

Hattricks is my favorite sports bar on this side of town. Peabody's is still my USF/ New Tampa sports bar.

No shortage of food and beverage I see! Good.
No beaches for me, as I said I'll be in class 8-5, so really just looking for evening entertainment.

I'm in the middle of a kitchen renovation so I have contractors working into the evening, but should be able to meet up if you want at some point next week (probably Wed/Thurs) for a quick drink or something.

If you go to Dunderbak's without me, I'll be so super mad.

orndog - if you don't make it to the Cigar City brewery, at least see if you can find some Good Gourd somewhere. It's so damn good.

I don't think I have it in me to do such a thing

Although I REALLY wouldn't mind a veal schnitzel.

I found a decent German restaurant here, but their dishes are slightly fancy (as fancy as German food gets) and the beer selection is just 5 German staples. Dunderbak's has the perfect combination of reasonably priced, good food and a awesome beer selection.
