Down for a couple of days to go to St. Pete City Council to get our permit...which WE DID!!! Yippee yahooo. Celebrated with carnitas tacos and gorditos at our favorite mexican place in Clearwater, La Cabana de mi Tio (on Drew at Duncan). Also went to the Sports Authority and got on the Tampa Bay Ray bandwagon and got a hat and t shirt in celebration of the Ray's Division Championship.
Last night we went to Pepin's a spanish restaurant on 4th in St. Pete. Had the BEST Sangria...really, really good...steeling ourselves for today's hearing! Before that we had a drink in the new "prohibition bar" at Grayl's (where I stayed the night). very pleasant...they have done a bang up job remodeling the 1st floor into a wonderful set of bars (yes two). A restaurant is coming in a few months. Rooms are still delightful and a good value for the St. Pete area. Most (if not all) have little kitchenettes...good beds...lovely decor...very comfortable...and right on Beach Ave in downtown St. Pete.
