Hey guys! Let me first give a shoutout to Pro Shop Pub in Clearwater, because they recently celebrated their 39th anniversary! The oldest bar in Tampa Bay is still going strong. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for their 40th! Also, I have been in celebrity heaven recently. Roberta Flack and Kathy Griffin both performed up here, and next week we will be welcoming Bette Midler! How divine! Now let me tell you what’s going on in the area this week so you can tell Bette what’s hot if you get to talk to her! Lots of love to you all!
