Best Unlikely Venue: American Legion Seminole Post 111

American Legion Seminole Post 111

What a strange, magical place Seminole Heights’ American Legion is. There’s usually a slew of older veterans, sitting at the bar through the day and into the night. Sometimes, at night, they’ll still be in their barstools watching sports or just deep in their drink. Sometimes, on that same night, some of Tampa’s loudest bands like Wolf-Face and Nervous Girls will be playing to a crowd of hipsters—though, they usually save the metal shows for Mondays. At the bar, no one talks politics—or tries not to. It’s just a room full of boomers and millennials all sharing the same space, and enjoying every minute of it. —Stephanie Powers
