I Guess That Means We Gotta Hug

So last night we closed down this bar in central Ybor City after consuming a couple of pitchers of margaritas.

There was a guy with a guitar singing along side us and he says toward the end of the night- “Make sure you take care of your waitresses and bartenders”

Just as he said that our very nice young buxom waitress rolls up to our table to presumably ask if we want a refill or whatnot but before she could say anything the Rabbit (the chubby guy in the foreground of the picture) says to her- “The guy says we’re supposed to take care of you so I guess this means we gotta hug.”

Nice Rabbit! :)

For the record she didn’t bite.

Ferg’s-Across the Street From Tropicana Field

This joint serves buckets of beer and baskets of wings for short money. Outdoors with a dj playing and a ton of tv’s it’s a huge party before the game. You really don’t even need to go into the ballpark to get a feeling for Tampa Ray baseball nation. Just about everyone in here is sporting Rays jerseys and caps.
I was surprised that I didn’t see more Red Sox caps but I guess when the Sox have been playing like they have and the home team is in first place all those transplants from up north switch who they root for-sad.

Ferg’s is THE SPOT to hit before the game if you’re ever down here though. The place is jumping on game days.

We scalped tickets for $10 and culd basically sit anywhere we wanted to up and down the first and third base lines or the outfield

Devil Rays Game Yesterday With The Boys

Tropicana Field is everything that Fenway is not

New, easy peasy parking, they have a giant tank in the outfield where you can pet rays. Could you imagine if someone suggestedthat they put a huge tank in right field at Fenway full of codfish? yeah, that’s gonna go over big.

There were lots of fans who seemed really into it. Nothing like there Fenway though with over half the ballpark empty. Across the street
