Amanda Re- A Spotlight on The Orpheum
When you think about Ybor City legacies, obviously The Orpheum ranks supreme. This glamorously gritty event venue has been around for nearly two decades and has hosted some of the most up-and-coming artists to date. The aesthetically dark venue favors a classic organic nostalgia that demands notoriety. Digital event promos and viral recaps just don’t do it justice. This nightlife monument is seriously worthy of your full attention. If you need more convincing, take a stroll down 7th Ave. and you’ll see The Orpheum’s concert posters displayed proudly in the windows of Centro Ybor community supporters. Bottom line, if you want to experience real, raw, uncut talent, you need to be at The Orpheum.
Was it a long week for you? Are you in need of relaxation? Here are three ways to relax and unwind in Tampa this weekend!
Lettuce Lake Park is a beautiful place to take an afternoon or morning walk along the boardwalk or canopy covered paths.
