Favorite place for a night out with the boys:
Ducky’s. “The Duck” is the place to be – good food, cold beer, great staff and miniature bowling!

Favorite place for a power lunch:
Carmine’s in Ybor City. I love the ziti.

Favorite local boutique:
DKM Accessories. My wife sends me there for her birthday gift certificates – I don’t shop.

Best BBQ:
Holy Hog. They have got the big three down: pulled pork, beans and slaw.

Favorite Italian restaurant:
Cena at Grand Central at Kennedy. The spaghetti and sausage is the best I have ever had.

Favorite place to grab a drink downtown:
The Sail Pavilion. It has a great view of the channel and Downtown Tampa.

Favorite exercise class:
Orangetheory Fitness. They have the best one-hour group training workout. They tell you what to do and keep you motivated.

Best place to take a walk:
Bayshore, of course.

Best place to relax outdoors:
Tampa Bay Sporting Clays. What is more relaxing than hiking through the woods shooting at stuff? Plus they have Holy Hog BBQ when you’re done!

Best beach spot:
Postcard Inn on St. Pete Beach – shabby chic all the way.

Best place to catch live music:
Green Iguana in Ybor.

Favorite park:
Curtis Hixon Park. Mayor Bob is great with parks!

Favorite golf course:
Westchase Golf Club. I like all the holes in the woods.

Favorite place to take my dogs:
The courtyard at Grand Central at Kennedy. Pour House lets the dogs come inside, too.
