Congratulations to Neily Cornacchi and Shane Zinn on the opening of “Collage Ybor.” The opening party was catered by Datz Deli. The new artsy and musical bar are in the old Play Club on 8th Ave. and 17th Street in Ybor City.

You know the food is great when Miss Sharon Rose texts everybody, “Hurry– the shrimp are great!” And the drinks were fab! The new club will feature a fun line up of live music and art events. Become their facebook friends at!/profile.php?id=100002876488107

Glow Party @ Steam Fridays

The Glow Party last year was fantastic. Everybody thought Steam couldn’t top it, but they did! The staff were all painted in gleaming black light colors. There were ingenious black lit screens hanging from the ceiling that were painted with black light glistening designs. Thousands of glow sticks were passed out! The drag show wowed the crowd with an all electric black light costume performance. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, they shot the confetti canon! It is very easy to see why The Honey Pot is the #1 Club in Tampa Bay that everyon is talking about!
