Coming to you this Friday–or should we say FRY-day–is Gulf to Bay Food Truck Association’s annual French Fry Festival! That’s right, there’s an ENTIRE festival dedicated to everyone’s favorite sliced-up starch…what a time to be alive. While admission to the amazing festival is free, please consider bringing non-perishable items to be donated to The Kind Mouse! Come on out for a fried-good time.
When: Feb 16th from 6 PM–11 PM

Will beer for run…uh, we me ‘will run for beer.’ Drinking in the morning is fine as long as you’re working out, right? We hope so, ‘cause it’s almost time for the Tampa Beer Run! Run or walk the 5K course and stop along the way for delicious samples of specialty beers. And not only do you get to enjoy a nice beer run, but you’ll also be donating money to My Hope Chest, a breast cancer charity. So it’s basically a win-win.
When: Feb 17th from 8 AM–10:30 AM
Where: Al Lopez Park

The trifecta of awesomeness is here! Let’s be real, is there a more perfect combination than beer, bourbon, and bbq? We didn’t think so. And it gets better. Admission gets you a cool sampling glass with–this is the good part–ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-TASTE samples of beer and bourbon!! *Sigh* we can already feel the hangover.
