My Thoughts on…the Westin Tampa Bay

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Joe and I decided to meet up in Tampa for the Cowboys/Bucs game at Raymond James Stadium. This was especially fun because he’s a Bucs fan and I’m a Cowboys fan. Plus, I knew it would be a blast to hang out with an NYC buddy.

out of the closet thrift shop
2097 Wilton Drive
Wilton Manors, FL 33305
P: 954.358.5580

FINALLY! for week’s i’ve had every intention of checking out out of the closet. it’s a vintage clothing store that was once voted best thrift shop in south florida. well, it had it’s good and bad.

good: pretty big store. not just limited to clothing. nice selection of vinyls (only $1.00 each!). big selection of men’s clothes. books galore ($1-2.50 each). carries furniture, appliances, home decor, etc. purchases go toward supporting the AIDS healthcare foundation.

bad: not a wide selection of women’s clothing. some of the clothing isn’t in the best shape. 

verdict: like any thrift store, you have to have patience to look around. i did end up leaving with a white j.crew cardigan (only $4!) and two books (only $2.50 each!). so all in all, my purchase was less than $10. i would definitely go back, but i might wait a while in hopes that they’ll have more clothes donated to the women’s section.

anthony’s coal fired pizza
yesterday, my boss took my co-workers and i out for lunch at anthony’s coal fired pizza. we started out with a GREAT salad. i got there after he ordered, so i think it was a sort of chef’s salad. it had lettuce, olives, boiled egg, baby tomatoes, and a yummy gorgonzola or similar type of cheese. so delicious! and best part, it’s bottomless salad, so you can eat as much as you want!
we ended up ordering a pizza with prosciutto and mushroom and another with sausage and onion. SOOO delicious. obviously not the healthiest lunch option, but we all have to splurge now and then. i highly recommend this place for lunch if you’re ever in the south florida area.

discovering miami: miami beach bars(photo of neon sign above the abbey brewing company, courtesy of their website) 
since moving to south florida six (!) months ago, i actually haven’t made it to miami very much. in fact, i can count on my hand how many times i’ve driven down there (well, maybe two hands). it’s only a half hour away from where i live, but the lack of parking and high prices (for nearly everything) is a huge turn off, so i usually avoid it. BUT, i decided to join one of my friends for drinks down there last night, and we hit not one, but TWO bars (one of which i’d been wanting to try for a while now).
first up, clarke’s miami beach. reminded me of an irish pub i’d find back in nyc. it had great food (my friend and i split the steak and mushroom pie and the mac & cheese, both incredibly delicious) and enough TVs for us to finish watching the NFL playoff game last night. so all in all, great food and a decent sports bar. would i go again? absoultely.
next up, the abbey brewing company. it’s “one of the oldest bars in miami”, although after finding out they opened in ‘95, it’s not nearly as impressive. i love, love, love this bar. it actually reminded me of a combination of bars in new york city. first and foremost, it reminded me of the magician in the LES. it had a similar layout (minus the bigger space in the back) and a similar clientele (hipsters, if that’s what they’re called in miami), great indie music, and overall, a great vibe. one thing better than the magician? this place takes major credit cards. and as someone who doesn’t carry much cash and pays with her debit card, this is a major plus. and of course, they carry their own brewed beer. i recommend the immaculate IPA. good stuff.
definitely check them out if you’re ever in miami. and added bonus: they’re probably a mile apart from each other. but a word to the wise…bring plenty of quarters for parking! these are both places that are near street parking, in which you have to feed the meter (12 minutes for .25 cents). happy drinking!

alright, i’m all for a little bit of winter weather (and i welcome it). but man, it was FREEZING when i walked the dog this morning. then again, that’s probably because i wore a sweatshirt and shorts.

thrift store shopping fail

i decided to brave the rain outside and head to out of the closet, a supposedly awesome thrift store. they’re based out of california, but have since expanded to two locations in south florida.

unfortunately for me, the parking spaces anywhere near the store were full (it’s mostly street parking and a metered lot), so no thrift shopping for me this time. maybe it’s a sign that i shouldn’t be spending any money on clothes right now…
