College football is back!
If you’re not in Orlando for the Florida-Miami game this weekend, get to Tampa for a bar crawl in honor of the start of the season.
Show up decked out in your favorite school’s swag and hop on the party bus that will take you to each of the four bars.
On Saturday night, downtown Winter Haven is going to be LOL’ing. Tiffany Barbee, last year’s “Best of the Bay” comedian, hits the stage with hilarious Bostonian-turned-Tampa Bay resident, Chris Gorges. Gorges has opened up for the likes of Dave Chapelle, Bill Bellamy and Pauly Shore.
Do you have a little one around? Get out of the house and take them over to Auburndale for a sweet afternoon with a Disney princess. Dress the part and enjoy some tea, sweet treats, music, photos and more.
Finally, round out the weekend with some Jonny Diaz. The smooth, easygoing singer will feature songs from his new album “Sweetness & Sorrow.” The album is full of songs that will brighten the mood and lyrics that put Jonny’s faith on display.
