    Yea that's the place, and I agree about the crappy location.

    Yeah, I was on Danielle's laptop when I first did it. Is that what you meant?

    Quaker Steak and Lube?!?! WTF is that?!?!

    Damn, we have some cool smilies in here...

    Anyway.. If you want to change the location, let's just keep the "meet" in Tampa and take a cruise from there. A bunch of Caddys on the road will be nice.

    Clearwater is next door to Tampa, basically. Its where the scientologists eat all the children.

    I'm considering the Hilton Garden Inn North and Crowne Plaza East. Travelocity users seem to like them and they're only $100.

    For a meet like this, we should all gather at some place loud, fun, and informal. Sports bars seem to be the winner.

    Re: Tampa Meat Feeler

    I found a pretty good spot tonight. Theres a Hooters across the Gandy bridge on the way to Largo with plenty of parking in an open area that looks to be a good size and probably doesnt get very packed due to its somewhat decentralized location.

    Its also convenient to get to from any direction. If your in South tampa, you can cross the gandy bridge and veer right on 686 (Roosevelt), and its on the left side. If your coming from the North or Airport area, you can hop on 275 South and get off on Roosevelt blvd, and your just about there.

    I think short of the Mall, anyplace in the tampa city limits is either gonna suck like Stoney said, or be packed to the gills like Brett said.

    Jesda dont forget you can crash with me if you need to.

    Re: Tampa Meat Feeler

    Ok, i'm not trying to be a pain in the ass but lets pick a spot that is centrally located. Otherwise people are gonna say they are coming and at the last minute realize they have to go from Brandon to Pinellas. Thats why I suggested Green Iguana which shares a parking lot with a 20 screen movie theater(lotsa parking) and it is right off the veterans. We certainly dont have to go where i am suggesting but for the sake of getting people to show up, lets keep it in the middle somewhere. There is also a Boston's restaurant and at least one other restaurant in there.

    Price I'll leave to Danielle. She handles our finances (I don't want to know anything about it!). Stuff to do? I think we're just going to explore the area.. We've never been to Tampa...

    The movie theater idea sounds pretty good - for a central meeting place.. We can hang out there for awhile, and then cruise to wherever we decide to go... If we can at least make this official, I can publicize it...

    http://embassysuites.hilton.com/en/e...tyhocn=TPAESES

    If you like the night club/dance scene try this one, it in ybor city, grittier than channelside, pretty crazy

    Re: Tampa Meat Feeler

    ah...ok....well then just beware of location...try to stay around Downtown or westshore...when you zero in on it run it by Boombotz or myself, you dont want to end up in the wrong part of town

    Ybor is basically a scaled down French Quarter...they are fights...but there is fun as well

    Re: Tampa Meat Feeler

    Haha, yeah Ybor is pretty bad. Imagine living there and trying to get the city to fix the roads, etc. It's a pain in the ass... luckily I'm moving soon.

    The trolley lets you get from Ybor to Channelside easily so no matter where you stay you can do both. I'm an original Tampon born and raised, so I can tell you where to go if you need suggestions.

    For the meet, I'd like to come out and see everyone's Caddy even if we don't go to a sports bar. I'll record the fight if I have to, but anywhere in Tampa, St. Pete or Clearwater is good with me. I enjoy getting out.
