Real Estate
  • Tampa Bay’s new apartments are roomier, on average than ones in other major cities, per a new RentCafe report. The south trended on the bigger side of things — and vice versa in the north.

Today Is
  • St. Patrick’s Day. Observed to honor the death of St. Patrick, the annual holiday is celebrated globally and often features Irish dishes, parades, and dancing. If you need a chuckle, head to Side Splitters Comedy Club in Wesley Chapel to enjoy a set from Irish performer Sean Finnerty.

  • The Tampa Pride Street Festival + Health and Wellness Fair is returning to Ybor on Saturday, March 25. The all-day event is comprised of a craft show and health fair at 11 a.m., a parade at 4 p.m., and a fiesta afterward at the Cuban Club. (ABC Action News)
  • A cash back card so good, even the experts had to have it. (Hint: Features include up to 5% cash back, a big sign-up bonus, and no annual fee.) See what it is.*
  • $241. That’s the real price of a roundtrip ticket from Boston to Barcelona sold this year via Going — a travel membership that alerts you when flight prices drop. Sign up for a free membership or try an Elite membership for free if you’re interested in business and first class tickets, too.

Sit down for this one. TBAY’s blend of urban and natural beauty, cultural richness, and endless entertainment now officially holds a candle to historic wonders of the world like Giza, Egypt — home to the Great Pyramids.

Why us?
