Hey there,
One of the things I get asked most often is what/where to go eat in Tampa. Though I have my go-to spots, I'm always looking to try new restaurants. Luckily we've started working on the Annual Restaurant Edition of South Tampa Magazine. This issue features a menu guide you can hold on to all year as a reference (hits homes in June). If you work at a restaurant contact me on how to have your menu included. 

Scroll down to the right for 10 events in Tampa. 

Local Businesses: TAMPA Magazine's upcoming issue is closing out soon and features dentist profiles and discounts for summer activities. Direct mailed to the 20,000 wealthiest homes in Tampa; Call me at 813-480-3885 or reply to this email for more info.
