Happy 3 Year Anniversary… Hamburger Mary’s
Congratulations to Hamburger Mary’s Ybor City on their 3rd year anniversary celebration. The bar & wait staff also did a Turn-a-Bout drag event benefitting Metropolitan Ministries Children Fund. Customers graciously donated to the some funny, amusing, but not so pretty cross overs. HM hostess Melanie Minyon was the ring master for the night. Kudos to Hamburger Mary’s for another great year and all the nonprofit support you give.

Hundreds of Ybor City businesses, bars, clubs, retail shops, offices and residents went all out to win the bragging rights and the $$$ of donated gifts and hotel weekend stays.

Winners this year are: Best Decorated Bar – Gaspar’s Grotto, Best Decorated Restaurant- Carnes Chop House, and Best Decorated Retail- La France. The party was held at Bradley’s on 7th and over 350 attended the holiday fare with flair party. The hilarious entertainment included, Miss Joey Brooks, Esme Russell, Melanie Minyon and cast.
You Just Can Not Make This Up
Every year my loving partner, Carrie plants a fall vegetable garden. Every day he checks on them over and over again. One year I felt bad that there were no tomatoes growing yet. There were numerous blossoms but no baby tomatoes. So….. I thought I would be the nice lover and went to the grocery store and purchased some green and red vine ripened tomatoes. When Carrie wasn’t looking I put them in the garden next to the vines. The next day I said, “Oh look!!!! You have beautiful homegrown tomatoes!!!” Carrie was very surprised and said with a big smile, “WOW how strange, tomatoes are growing on my cucumber vines!!!” Oops!!!
