“ Love the Tampa Chapter of the Society for the Exploration of Play. I cannot rave about the group of people any more. For me, I was worried about hygienely-challenged , living in mom's basement, super socially awkward 16 years olds playing pokemon. Luckily, this group greets you with open arms and they are normal people. Thursdays are awesome. If you are new, Joseph, the group's organizer, will greet you in the first 10 minutes and introduce you to people. He'll recommend games to play. He owns almost 1,000. Way more options than other groups/stores in the area. People are very friendly and you'll end up trying many new games. No worries about it being cliquish or snobby. People also love to teach games. ”

“ So this week I ate at La Berry on Bruce B. Downs Blvd next to Burger 21 which is just past Walmart and Wharton HS. La' Berry is at 20304 Trout Creek Commons, Tampa Fl 33647 and the phone is 813 345-8537. Lifton is Willy Wonka of New Tampa. He has frozen yougert and the strawberry tastes like strawberry as well as pineapple and Tarro taste like pineapple and Tarro. His food includes soups, salads wraps and panini. Try the food gang. He is an amazing cook and owns the restarant with his mom Annie. Annie makes tortilla soup which I ate 2 cups then bot one to take home to Ron. Matt Ossi also loves the soup as does Rocky Who? my amazing Chinese friend. Try the food people. It is organic and natural and so good you will want to return tomorrow with 21 of your closest friends and family. Jim Moss fan club: I plan to take Jim there so show up dudes. ”
