If you're like me, you probably thought it was never going to end. Eleven straight days of rain and torrential downpours made for a truly Manic Monday in Tampa causing flooded streets, forced evacuations, submerged cars, downed trees and powerlines, closed businesses, and more canoes than cars in the streets.  What happened to our summer?

But, today is Tuesday and the glorious sun is shining again! Time to put the umbrellas away and enjoy a drink outside at one of Tampa's Best Patio Bars. Not sure where to head? Check out some of our favorites!
