You know its going to be a good night when a party has great food, great music, and strong drinks! I came to that realizitaion about a half hour into the Official Super Bowl Host Committee media party last night which was sponsored by Pulte Homes and host by the Cuban Club in Ybor City.
I had never actually been to the Cuban Club before which is amazing considering I drive by it a few times a week on my way home from work. I can say without a doubt though that last night was as good an introduction as any. The party was on three separate floors of the venue as well as entertainment performed by live band outside in the courtyard.
The music on all three floors was amazing from salsa, to jazz, to rock, and what can I say about the food! There was food on all floors from latin flavored, to sushi, to american style and oh yeah did I mention strong drinks! Special thanks to Hooters, Tinatapas, and Green Iguana for great food (I am sure there were other caterers, but I am a picky eater and that is all I ate). As far as celebrity citings go, I saw a few notable ESPN analysts and also saw Ross the Intern from the Tonights show most notably. Word on the street is most celbrity's will be geting here tonight so let the fun begin!
All in all I would have to give the night a 10, as I had a blast and am looking forward to the reminder of this weeks events. Last nights party was indeed a dry run for for the Champions Ball 2009 later this week hosted by none other than Floyd Mayweather, considered by most to be pound for pound the greatest boxer of our time. That should be a good party though so if you get a chance hurry up and get your tickets for that oen and stop by as I can vouch for the Cuban Club being one of th major hotspots this week for things to do in Tampa Bay!
If you were there last night, leave me a comment and let me know how you thought it turned out! In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your Super Bowl in Tampa Bay experience!
