GAYBOR BAR CRAWL

The GaYBOR Bar Crawl on Sunday was nothing less than an adventure of meeting new friends and tasting some 15 new tasty concoctions at the same number of shot stops. Heading the hundreds of participating revelers was none other than Mama from the Reservoir Bar dressed with a 4th of July colored scepter and wearing a swank risque dress! All along the streets of Ybor people toasted and cheered the 4th of July celebration bar hoppers. Bands were playing at Play, Crowbar, Green Iguana, JJ’s, Centro Cantina, Gaspar’s Grotto and ended at Hamburger Mary’s with RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Alexis Demateo. “It is a sea of people having fun” said Jason Fernandez, owner of Bernini’s Restaurant.
