Dear Writer Friends–I’m not going to #AWP2018, but if you are, and if you’re going to Ybor City for an event, make sure to walk a couple blocks toward the train tracks and visit Al’s Bar-B-Que. It’s messy & great, and they serve big-ass beers! I went there with my dad a year or two before he passed away, and it’s such a nice memory. I try to get there when I visit my brother in Tampa. The Ybor neighborhood is worth a stroll, and has an interesting history as a hub of Cuban cigar manufacturing.
This is so cute. I hope it becomes a dance craze. All these kids finding out they get to go see the Black Panther movie for free! Make mine Marvel! The costumes look so good n this that I wonder if they will influence fashion this summer? The textiles and textures really take the comic look to a new level, and the armor and beaded jewelry are great, too. Plus I would watch Angela Bassett, who plays the titular hero’s mom, in just about anything. I always thought she’d make a very regal Storm. Comic cons are gonna be fun this year.
