We hope you have an open schedule this weekend, because Tampa's got a full itinerary of entertainment to get you off the couch and into the action. Tampa Bay Beer Week is still on tap, so make sure you stay thirsty this weekend. And for you foodies out there (let's be real, that's all of us) don't miss out on a chance to fill your bellies at the first annual Tampa Taco Fest. There's several opportunities for jamming out this weekend, including EDM and country shows -- two very opposite genres, but hey, that's Tampa for ya. We've got all the good fun listed below, so get out those phones and start gathering the gang for a banging weekend!
