Less interested in following your significant other around as they hunt for hip clothing and accessories than in having a beer or glass of wine at the bar while petting dogs indoors, out of the heat? Here, have the 600 Block’s Bartique. Now everybody’s happy. 640 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. 727-827-2914 —SH
Local business is good business.
Who would’ve known that we’d spend our mid-30s (and beyond) collecting buttons and pins for our lapels and guitar straps? Thanks to the comic book-inspired selection at Tampa’s Bronze Age Buttons and veteran local comics artist/musician Josh Sullivan’s wide variety of enamel pins both cute and snide, getting older (and throwing around our disposable income) never felt — or looked — so cool. —Ray Roa/Scott Harrell
