FAVORITE PLACE FOR A POWER LUNCH:
Fresh Kitchen. Their delicious, guilt-free bowls (smothered in their Holy Kale sauce, of course) fuel me for the rest of the day.
FAVORITE PLACE FOR A SPECIAL FAMILY OCCASION:
Bern’s Steak House. The atmosphere alone makes any occasion special. I love their dessert room!
BEST PLACE TO WATCH A BUCCANEERS GAME WITH FRIENDS:
Brick House Tavern + Tap. Super fans know that away games are best spent at Brick House. Great food, super fan-friendly and close by to the excitement!
FAVORITE LOCAL BOUTIQUE:
Print Farm Paper Company. They have the coolest, wittiest hand-lettered cards.
FAVORITE WATERFRONT RESTAURANT:
Hula Bay Club. They easily have the best view, sushi and live reggae bands in the Bay.
FAVORITE PLACE FOR AUTHENTIC CUBAN FOOD:
Arco-Iris. Their entire menu gives me life, but the Chinese Cuban Fried Rice is out of this world.
FAVORITE WEEKEND BRUNCH SPOT:
Datz. I always change it up here, so pretty much anything you order is a win. My favorite item is their Coffee & Donuts cocktail.
HIDDEN GEM RESTAURANT:
Sunday’s Deli. I don’t know anyone who has finished an entire Sunday’s sub in one sitting. My favorite is their Singapore Street Vendor sandwich.
FAVORITE PLACE TO SIT WITH MY COFFEE DRINK OF CHOICE:
The Bunker. I love to people watch with a latte with tons of cinnamon.
FAVORITE DIVE BAR:
The Mermaid Tavern. They have the best lineup of local and craft beers. Don’t leave without grabbing a plate of their truffle fries.
Epic Boxing and Fitness. They have awesome trainers and a killer cycling-boxing hybrid workout.
The Dalí Museum in St. Pete. You could spend a whole day experiencing their permanent collection and their featured exhibits.
FAVORITE LOCAL ATTRACTION:
Busch Gardens. There’s nothing like a good adrenaline rush – it’s basically my yoga.
FAVORITE BEACH RESTAURANT:
Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill. I love that you can walk up from the beach just as you are.
FAVORITE BAY-AREA BEACH:
Redington Beach. You’ll see half of Tampa there in early July. It’s definitely a local favorite, and it’s only 45 minutes from home.
