Welcome to the 9th Edition of the 813area Podcast featuring Collin Sherwin and Anthony Vito, recorded live from the Tampa Bay WaVE studios on Kennedy in Downtown Tampa. We took a brief hiatus after St. Patrick's Day to recover, but are back with your local pod guide to everything Tampa this weekend. We lay out what appears to be an extremely busy May 5th (Cinco de Mayo, USF/UT graduations, two huge concerts, Tampa Riverfest 2018, Kentucky Derby parties... and yes even more), so it's best to start planning now! 

But enough about the future, we talk about tons of events that are happening in our area this weekend such as the Sugar Sand Festival at Clearwater Beach, the Sixth Annual Tampa Bay Kid's Triathlon in the 813area, and plenty more!

The guys also talk about the Tampa Bay Lightning first-round playoff series starting this week at Amalie Arena, so go out and support the hometown Bolts in their pursuit of Lord Stanley's Cup! In addition to the Lightning, the Tampa Bay Rays host a series with the Philadelphia Phillies Friday through Sunday so there's plenty to do for the local sports fan, too!
