Staff Pick of the Week

Meet our summer interns!

Gianna Devito Tampa Intern – My go-to spot in Tampa Bay is Armature Works which is right along the Tampa Riverwalk. It’s the perfect spot for families, date nights, or outings with friends. The open floor plan holds diverse restaurant options that are surely delish! From Sushi to Pizza, Tacos, and Ice Cream, Armature Works has exactly what you’re craving; My guilty pleasure is the Babe Shakes from Bake’n Babes! The outside area is a great place to enjoy the fabulous weather and take advantage of the hosted events like the Night Market, Yoga on the Lawn, and the Run Club!

Morgan Kania Tampa Intern – If you’re looking for a fun day trip, look no further than St. Pete Pier! This beautiful new attraction in Downtown St. Pete calls for the best views, food, and drinks around. From casual to fine dining options, and even a coffee bar, the Pier serves the perfect vibe for any mood you’re in. The rooftop tiki bar, Pier Teaki, has an amazing sunset view and the yummiest cocktails (my personal fav!).

Ashley Prince Tampa Intern – My go-to spot in Tampa is Sparkman Wharf! 🌴 It is located in the Channelside district in Tampa that includes over 10+ options for outdoor dining, a beautiful Biergarten, shopping boutiques, and various events. My favorite spot in Sparkman Wharf is Jeni’s Ice Cream – specifically their gooey butter cake flavor 😍
