Tampa TB'ers

  1. Roll call: who's from the Tampa area? I'm curious as to how many of you are in my general area...

    i'm out on davis island (downtown)
  3. I'm in the New Tampa area (basically North Tampa), close to the Pasco Country border. Tampa Palms, actually, if you know where it is. I'm a student at UF, though, so I come home to Tampa from Gainesville every so often.
  4. Sweet man. I spent some time in Gainesville. I was attending Santa Fe. How often do you go to Burrito Bros? Did you know they're thinking about opening one in Tampa?

  5. I don't think I've ever eaten at Burrito Brothers, though they'll be catering food one-a-week for a church I go to, so in a few weeks, I'll be eating there. I have to say I enjoy eating at Moes, if they're anything like BB.

    Do you play with any groups that do shows in Tampa?
  6. Well, first off, you might offend some people if you compare Moe's to Burrito Bros :)
    That place is a cult favorite and some would swear by their recipe. To me, it's a great place to get some grub after a night in downtown G'ville. The wife and I enjoy Moe's, Tijuana Flats or ANY other purveyor of burritos!!! It's funny though, if you do any amount of research on Burrito Brothers, you'll see a very loyal group of people.

    I'm in two bands right now. One is a rock band that doesn't work much and still trying to get tight. Nothing complicated, just Green Day, Blink, some 80's standards and stuff. Party music.

    The second band is more of a Latin/Jazz Fusion project which just got going. I'm hoping this band will push me and challenge me to be a better player. I'm having to learn Latin grooves as well as improv a bit.

    oh, oops: there's a get together post sticky-ed 'round here somewhere's
  16. Yeah, I'll be going to the GTG if I'm free. I'd love to meet up with some TBers. In the stickied thread, I think there's a weekend that works best for a guy or two, but no idea on a location yet.
