Hey everyone, Lisa here!

You don't want to miss Ybor City's 3rd Annual Ybor Aficionado Days taking place Saturday, April 18 - Sunday, April 19. This two-day event celebrates the anniversary of the manufacture of the first cigar in April 1886.  This up-scale event will begin Saturday afternoon with a Tapas Trail touring over a dozen of Ybor’s fine dining establishments.  This will be followed by an After Party/Smoker at the historic Italian Club.  This year’s event continues on Sunday with an elegant brunch at the world famous Columbia Restaurant on La Setima – Ybor City’s main street. 

On Saturday afternoon from 4-7 p.m., tour a baker’s dozen of Ybor’s many quality restaurants.  At 6:30 p.m., stop by the elegant Italian Club and dance to classic hits by Mainstream, sample sprits, and indulge in traditional desserts and coffees.  Have a complimentary photo taken in your tropical attire and then step down into the Club’s Cantina and enjoy a fine, hand-rolled cigar compliments of the house.
On Sunday, don't miss the Spanish Brunch at the Columbia starting at noon.  The elegant, traditional buffet will be laid out in the Patio Courtyard with the entire Siboney Room reserved for guests.  Contemporary jazz with a Latin beat will be provided by the Columbia’s own Dick Rivers Band.
And for the ultimate Ybor Experience, stay overnight at one of the Historic District’s great hotels:  Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn or Don Vicente de Ybor.  Discount packages are available.
