Don't try this at home

Must-Do? Says Who? Only those with a strong constitution

Casualties: 2 $1.00 tolls, 2 $25 parking tickets

Saturday, July 21st, 2007 is a day that will live in infamy. We awoke bright and early with our sights set on a day to end all days—a day spent binging like a wannabe Tampa local.

The itinerary was long and arduous, our adventures tiring, but we emerged the better for it, having knocked 5 Must-Do's off the list and adding several of our own. There was breakfast at Skyway Jack's (#83), then a trip over the Sunshine Skyway (#18) and back, then a total sensory immersion at Wagon Wheel Flea Market (#42), then some intellectual inquiry at Haslam's Book Store (#32), then several hours rained in at Mastry's (#8a), then a wrong turn that nearly took us back over the Skyway, then Zydeco dance lessons at the Cajun Cafe on the Bayou (our own addition), and finally a visit with the Senator and friends at The Castle.

Stay tuned for updates as we report back on these and other expeditions—some with clothes on, others without.
