This was definitely one of those weekends where we were out of the house more than in. Which, that is rare for us homebodies. I know talking about the weather is boring but can I just say, the Summer heat has hit Florida. All the outdoor events this weekend were brutal. Gone our our humidity free days, replaced with the scorching ones. Luckily the events had cold beverages to help! Linking up with B to show the fun events that went down in Tampa this weekend. Warning picture heavy post!
This week we went to the Pepin Brews with Attitude which was probably one of my favorite events because it was at night. It also wasn’t crazy over sold so you were able to try anything you wanted with minimal lines. We got to try out a ton of great local brews, my favorites were the Pair O’Dice Brewery from Clearwater and we love Blue Point which is from New York (obviously non local). That is where we heard about the event for Saturday.
Saturday was the Blue Point event which was ehhhhh, not so amazing. I can’t stand when events make you buy tokens or coupons to exchange for beer. Cash works just fine. It was also scorching hot out and extremely windy out by the water.
We decided to go check out the Slide the City. Cool concept but insane lines.
Sunday we headed over to the Taste of South Tampa. I was used to this event being in Hyde Park but I did like the Garden Club even though I probably should have worn shoes that were okay for being out in the grassy/dirt since mine were not so happy being schlepped around outside. I like how there was food and drinks plus no crazy lines. It was almost impossible to get pictures, juggling all my food plates. I will tell you my favorite was that doughnut, still thinking about it.
The end of the month is the Margarita Festival and I have two tickets to give away for the local peeps. It’s on May 28th from 12pm-11pm (Saturday). There is also a run associated with it that if you run, you receive a General Admission ticket. I’m kind of secretly excited that Blues Traveler will be there. There is also a special tequila tasting if you which to partake and add onto your ticket. You know the drill, rafflecopter entries for social media likes. Plus, you can come and hang out with me for an adult bev!

I hope everyone had a fab weekend and back to the work week grind right? Make the best out of today! Mondays are always my busiest, so I feel that it’s all downhill after today. What were you up to this weekend? Do you have any outdoor Spring events like this where you live?
