Best Of 2021

Local Route Disc Golf Pro Shop

The burgeoning alt-sport of disc golf is not as simple as grabbing a Frisbee and aiming it at targets (actually, raised metal baskets). Beginners are encouraged to play with a minimum of three discs: a driver, a mid-range and putter. Advanced slingers can tote as many as 60 around the course in a wheel cart. Local Route Disc Golf Pro Shop consists of 4,000-square-feet stocked with more than 20,000 discs and a vast array of bags and accessories. The knowledgeable staff works with customers, especially newbies, to outfit them with the right discs so they can get off to a good start. Local Route is also a clearinghouse for the disc golf 411. The Tampa Bay area has 23 disc golf courses, just so ya know, most of which are free to play. localroute.com

Tiffozi Apparel

When was the last time something came along that you didn’t know existed, but also couldn’t live without when you found it? Enter Tiffozi, the ridiculously meticulous vintage soccer (football if you’re cool) apparel shop located on the old Main Street near North Howard Avenue Boasting a seriously impressive collection of vintage soccer gear, from track jackets to jerseys and the like, Tiffozi has a collection worth gawking at, even if you aren’t a fan of the sport. What makes it even cooler? It’s appointment only, unless you can make it down on a Saturday to see the goods in person. I know where I’m headed for my next Steven Gerrard jersey. tiffoziapparel.com
