This sounds like my kind of event! Lisa here with some exciting news from one of our manyBands Brew & BBQ at Bush Gardens Tampa Florida Attractions!

Starting on February 12th (that's Saturday), Busch Gardens and SeaWorld Orlando are starting the Bands, Brew and BBQ concert series. Woah, let me explain.

This BBQ, music festival mixes three great things; beer, BBQ, and duh music. It will include liver performances from country and classic rock artists, dozens of craft and international beers and blazing BBQ from some local Tampa Bay Dining favorites.

Saturdays at SeaWorld the lineup is as follows:
- Feb 12th Huey Lewis & The News
- Feb 19th Willie Nelson
- Feb 26th REO Speedwagon
- March 5 Josh Turner

Sundays at Busch Gardens the lineup is as follows:
- Feb 13th Montgomery Gentry
- Feb 20th Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
- Feb 27th The Commodores & The Pointer Sisters
- March 6th Travis Tritt & The Charlie Daniels Band

Also excited is the new Busch Gardens Festival beer Garden with more than 50 specialty and craft beers. Guests who want unlimited access to all 14 beer tents can purchase a wristband for $25, which includes a 5-oz souvenir pilsner to use for unlimited sampling. If you have a season pass you can get two bands for $40.

The other new thing is the food that's offered. Outback Steakhouse, Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill and Grill Smith favorites. I won't give away what they are serving but it's worth it, trust me! Sample plates start at $4 and platters start at $8.

You can reserve seats for $27.95 and that price includes a meal and priority reserved seating at center stage.

Having trouble deciding what to do? Get a 2011 Fun Card, pay for a day and play all year. This is a great thing to have with the upcoming coaster Cheetah Hunt!!!!!! You may as well get your pass now, so you can enjoy it as much as possible before December 31st.

Well that's all for me, but stay tuned for more great ways to enjoy Tampa Bay Weather, and other fun Tampa Bay Area Events!
