Remember, Cigar City STILL isn't in Ybor.

Cutting into this thread since you guys are from Tampa - I'm going to be heading there in a couple of weeks to see my old college buddy. I'm going to land at about 9am, and he won't get off of work until around 4p. I've got a car and want to head to a beach. Where should I go?

Depends where he lives. If he lives In Palm Harbor/Largo/Clearwater area head to Clearwater Beach, if he lives in south Pinellas county go to st. pete beach bars. Post Card Inn is a fun place to hang out, and Undertowe has a good selection of beer.

Clearwater beach is really nice around the Hyatt.

This Saturday there is a beer festival at the Brighthouse field called Hops for Hospice, with a pretty good venue.

Just go to Clearwater Beach. By far the best talent there. From the airport, take 60 west. All the way to the water. For lunch, Frenchy's is a fun place that is grandfathered on the sand. To get to Frenchy's, turn right when you hit the water (Mandalay) and it will be on your left, about 1/4 mile.

Thanks for the suggestions! He lives in Plant City. I'm thinking I'll go to Clearwater and head over to his place around 3pm. How would traffic be around that time?

Traffic gets very heavy at the I-4 275 interchange around 4PM. If you take Howard Franklin over anytime before 4:00 you won't hit any major traffic

Edit:

I guess if your coming from clearwater you will be taking Courtney Campbell, to veterans, then to 275 I am unfamiliar with the Courtney Campbell traffic

The CC is clear until about 5. It's not too bad after that, but slow. Watch for the 50mph speed trap on the east end of it, while travelling east.

Awesome. Does Frenchy's have a good beer selection? If not, are there any places on or near Clearwater beach that do?
