Gather the crew and start planning what fun things to do in Tampa ya'll will do this weekend! The problem is not what you'll do, it's how you'll do it all, because there are some seriously awesome opportunities for good times happening every day! 

For my party sippers out there, start hydrating now. There are several awesome booze-inspired events in Tampa happening that will have you giggly with tipsy joy! The inaugural Mighty Mule Party is happening on Thursday night at The Ritz Ybor. If you're an appreciator of this chilly copper mug cocktail, get your tickets now! To make this event even more mouth-watering, you can save $15 on your ticket price by using promo code "MY813". We suggest using that extra cash to order yourself a few tasty artisan Mules by some of Tampa's best bars and restaurants shaking it up at the event. 

If you're more of a music-loving weekender, there are things to do in Tampa this weekend you'll love! Shawn Mendes is coming to the Amalie Arena (swoon) and Blink-182 and Lil Wayne are coming to the Amphitheatre. If you don't like any of those three performers, then we just feel sad for you. But, whatever type of fun you're trying to have, rest assured there are plenty of things to do in Tampa that will have you wishing the weekend would never end!
