There are so many fun things to do in GaYBOR/ Ybor City. In Centro Ybor at Centro Muvico 20 on the theater’s east end is a special section that was created especially for the 21 & up crowd with beer & wine available. The seats are larger and the arm rests all have built in cup holders. The week day lunch buffet at The Laughing Cat Restaurant is the Best in the City! VIP’s from across Tampa can be spotted dining here. There are many Celebrity Bartender Happy Hours. Christian at Carne’s is especially fun on Tuesdays. Bonnie is at The Crowbar every Wednesday 5-8. Ask to be on her private text update list. Tea Cup is on the balcony at Hamburger Mary’s every Fri, Sat & Sun. The Sunday FUNday party is off the chain with a drag show by Miss Melanie Minyon. The legendary Corvette Carol is a must do. Stop by The Green Iguana on 7th today. On Saturdays mornings enjoy the Ybor City Saturday Market located in Centennial Park with homemade food items, handmade crafts, entertainment, and fresh vegetable produce stand.
You Just Can Not Make This Up
What is the strangest thing you have seen from the Hamburger Mary’s balcony?
I am asked this question all the time. The answer is a most recent sighting. One Saturday Night around 10 PM a group of 15 – 20 guys were in Centro Ybor. They were ages 30-50+. One by one each man gave a guy in the middle of the group a big hug then handed him what looked like a wallet or passport. The guy in the middle took the passports and put them into a back pack. The man waved good bye to the group and walked towards the parking garage caring the backpack. The group of guys then walked away up 7th AVE. I turned to Kurt and said “What did we just see? If we call the police what just happened?” Where they a crew from a ship? Where they tourists from..? Why didn’t they need their ID’s? Where were they going? Were they up to good or no good? Very, very strange!!!
