Cuban Sandwich Day is on 8/23 and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious sandwich from Bodega?! Inspired by the islands of Latin America, this restaurant creates food people love with the freshest ingredients.

We highly recommend the delicious Lechon Sandwich and the Cuban Sandwich! For dessert you need to try the Guava & Cheese Pastelitos. It’s a little taste of Cuba in Tampa Bay.

Their St. Pete location is currently closed but you can still visit them in Seminole Heights!

Last weekend I had such a fun time at the Joinery in Lakeland! This modern food hall has so many choices. We ended up ordering a margarita pizza from Ava, ramen from Sabu, and tacos from Gallito Taqueria. All of our lunches were so delicious and I loved that there was something for everyone. If you’ve got a sweet tooth like me, you’ve gotta check out Mayday Ice Cream

After lunch, we went shopping at the flower boutique called Bloom Shakalaka and then strolled along Mirror Lake which is across the street. The views and all the swans made for an entertaining afternoon.
