Weekend Wrap up in #my813
We all know Mayor Bob Buckhorn loves to indulge Tampa with urbanity, fun and fantastic food. All three were proudly prominent at this, the fourth annual Mayor's Mac and Cheese Throwdown! People from across Hillsborough flooded downtown Tampa for this free event at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. There, they tasted more than 20 variations of mac and cheese from renowned local vendors and enjoyed Tampa's waterfront. A little excitement ensued on the sidelines this year, did you see the protesters? They were protesting the ingestion of cheese!
