I have to ask, how do you find out about all of these? You wouldn't happen to have a listing for Tampa, would ya?

Many of these I get from press releases that are sent to me. And there are a number that I don't even post. I usually just post the ones I think my be the most interesting.

I don't have anything for Tampa though.

Good to know but total bummer about Tampa... that's one thing I miss about living in Miami: the infinite things to do at night!

Keep an eye out if you see anything for Tampa but I won't be surprised if you don't! :)

I'll keep an eye out though don't expect I'll see anything in Tampa.
