Tampa Pub Crawl falls under the umbrella of Orlando Pub Crawl, a socially oriented outfit started by Cameron Parker in 2005 to organize the bar-going experience into a convivial group event. Tampa and Orlando Pub Crawl organize trips for up to 1,000 revelers at a time and style their events after themes and occasions including the Kentucky Derby, '80s Nights, and Cinco de Mayo. Partiers hop from bar to bar, enjoying complimentary drinks, admission, and other specials as they mingle and socialize amid festivities, games, and libations. The pub-crawl team can also tailor a private crawl for groups of 100 or more, allowing companies, organizations, and poker-playing dogs to journey to bars in organized packs.

Under the spotlight, the uproarious T.K. Kirkland keeps cracked-up crowds in stitches during a show that combines laughter, music, and poetry, with proceeds benefiting breast-cancer research. Reprising crowd-pleasing material from Are There Any Questions?, T.K. Kirkland quizzes audiences on such universal subjects as relationships, self-esteem, and who does their dental work. The comic’s placid demeanor juxtaposed with his sharp and outrageous humor has won him spots on P. Diddy’s Bad Boyz of Comedy, the movie Comedy After Dark, and HBO’s Def Comedy Jams. Comedian-cum-host L.C. steers audiences through the evening, which also features live music and poetry to soothe inflamed funny bones. A special package for Groupon holders bundles goodies such as two souvenir glasses and a photo with the comic, who will also pose for brief still-life paintings.

Produced by the Davis Islands Chamber of Commerce, the second annual Bluz & BBQ event sates senses with live music and barbecue from local vendors, contributing to the fundraising effort for the revitalization of the historic Roy Jenkins Pool, a Davis Islands landmark. Like any good roast-beef market, the currency at Bluz & BBQ comes in the form of Little Piggie Bucks, which are valid for a number of menu items including Yuengling drafts ($3), Cigar City Brewery drafts ($4), and barbecue plates ($6–$12). Event attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and a picnic blanket that doubles as a giant handkerchief to the event, ensuring comfort and cleanliness during six live blues performances from musicians such as Damon Fowler, a roots-rock virtuoso and Florida native.
