Local Adventures: The Great Escape Room-Tampa

20161022_185556

Exploring what our backyard has to offer!

Looking for a challenging and fun experience? Then The Great Escape Room may just be up your alley. Part of a growing sensation that’s been sweeping across the nation, (Perhaps even further?) escape rooms are simple in concept, but not in practice. Each room is typically centered around a theme, this particular location had a Library and a Game room, and each has a story to go along with it. And then, well, you have to escape it by finding clues and solving puzzles under a certain time limit. Now, it doesn’t seem like it would be a whole lot of fun, but it really is, which is probably why they’ve grown in popularity recently.

Local Eats: Greek City Cafe

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

While Devil’s Mistress #2 is away in Greece eating the delicious food, I am stuck behind, much to my dismay, in the old United States. But, to help tide me over we at least have some good international fare in the neighborhood. And one of those places is the Greek City Cafe in Spring Hill, Florida. It’s not a big place, nor a particularly fancy place, but it will help satisfy the Greek food cravings you have. (Though it is not, unfortunately, a replacement for the real thing.)

Local Eats: Taco Bus

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

When I first had Taco Bus I was told it didn’t really count, that it didn’t measure up to the real thing. Which is saying something because my first time wasn’t all too bad. I had been at a friends wedding where they catered, pulled up in a short, bright yellow bus. Yes, they take their name seriously! And that was two years ago!

So after picking up another friend from the airport, I finally got to experience the REAL deal after hearing so much about it. And I wasn’t disappointed. After I pulled in, I was pleased to see not one, but two buses making up a charming little courtyard. Most of the seating is outside, but they did also have an indoor dining room if the weather is not so agreeable, and let’s face it, in Florida thunderstorms are a daily summer afternoon occurrence. Luckily for us, the sun was just peeking out from behind the remnants of one such storm and we got to enjoy the humid heat while Latino music filled the air.

Local Eats: Kazu’s

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

Looking for the best Sushi in the Hudson area? Then check out Kazu’s! A small restaurant tucked away in a rather barren strip mall (don’t let that scare you away!) Kazu’s has a rather large following in the area, and for good reason. According to their website, the restaurant was opened in 2003 by¬†Kazunobu Miyazato and his wife. With 30 years of being a sushi chef under his belt, it definitely shows, yum! And the prices are very reasonable too. So if you are ever in the area and have a hankering for delicious sushi, check out Kazu’s! Your stomach, and your wallet, will thank you!

St. Augustine, My Favorite Place in Florida

Lightner Museum 2

One of them at least…

Confession time: I’m not really a beach person.

I grew up in Florida, surrounded by water and beaches. How can this be?

I’m not entirely sure, maybe it’s all the sand in places it shouldn’t be, the bright sun (night owl here!), or the self confidence issues that come with wearing bathing suits. I can appreciate a good beach every once in a while though. I’m just not as into them as other people seem to be…
