Located in the Sherwood Forest Shopping Center, Old World Cheese Shop, a longtime staple of the area, forges freshly sliced feasts from food and folklore. The Robin Hood cold sandwich ($6.75) robs from the kitchen and gives to the stomach with delicious ham and turkey, crisp bacon, cheese, and golden dressing stacked between three slices of pumpernickel bread, while the Sir Galahad steamed sandwich ($6.75) is a gallant warrior of roast pork, cheese, and sweet-pepper jelly served hot on an onion roll. Those hungry for tie-dye-tinted trips into the subconscious may opt for the Pita Fhonda pita ($5.95), featuring Old World Cheese Shop's acclaimed tuna salad.
The arts-and-crafts experts at You Do the Dishes, who have captivated the cameras of Fox 13 News, encourage visitors to channel their inner Van Gogh's while brushstroking pre-made ceramics. The studio equips guests with all necessary painting materials needed to enliven one piece of pottery (up to a $15 value) that can include a coffee mug, a jewelry box, or a dog bowl for using as a helmet during ping-pong practice. After painters embellish their masterworks with thoughtful words and colorful patterns, the shop's staff carefully glazes and fires each piece, which will be ready for pickup three to five days later. The studio's full-service coffee bar fills empty bellies with light snacks, hot coffee, and tea that fuel creativity more effectively than eating an original Andy Warhol painting.
Chefs Anthony Sanschagrin and Matthew Beilstein fuse their culinary passions for Italian, Latin, and Asian cuisine, designing menus for special events and divulging their secrets at hands-on cooking classes. Equally capable of creating edible display pieces or full dinner buffets, the duo can forge eclectic spreads with baked lasagna, crispy beef empanadas, or sweet 'n' sour chicken.
They also share their insights by leading internationally themed cooking lessons, which allow students to try their hand at basic recipes and then taste their results afterward. Much like the number of centimeters in a mile, the menus change constantly, incorporating new recipes and accommodating students' food allergies.
Located in historic Ybor City, the Hampton Inn & Suites puts guests just steps away from the nightlife and offers complimentary shuttle service to any location within a three-mile radius. Within the safe, cozy confines of the hotel, guests can get jacked on complimentary caffeinated brews in the lobby, multi-task by surfing the Net while catching a movie on cable, or hone elementary backstroke skills in the pool. They'll also wake up to a bevy of delectable morning treats courtesy of Hampton's On The House hot breakfast—especially if the hotel staff dumps bacon onto them while they're sleeping.
Owners Spencer and Sabrina Aird parlay a passion for nourishing vegan fare into Grass Root Organic Restaurant, which CBS Tampa named one of the best veg restaurants in the city. Carmine walls envelop diners in the cozy café space, creating a soothing atmosphere punctuated with vivid abstract paintings hung along the wall. While settled into high-backed wooden chairs, each topped with a lattice design, diners dig into a menu that features cooked vegan dishes as well as raw dishes. Raw vegan pad thai, guacamole, and spinach and basil pesto, among others, star on the restaurant's roster.
The Airds also run a customizable meal delivery system that sends clients fresh meals from a rotating weekly menu several times a week. Sabrina teaches occasional classes on how to replicate her culinary expertise and mimic items on Grass Root's menu by sitting very still on an oversized plate.
