Great Tampa Lunch

This was the 4th Tampa lunch that I have been able to participate in and was by far the best. We had a great lunch at The Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. The fellowship was wonderful. Jay and Kathy (SSN686), Jen (RibBones), Faith (Florida Grillin Girl), Al (Hungryman), Tania and I met at noon today.

It is always fun to see old friends over a casual lunch and just hang out. Jen will probably be able to upload pics first, hopefully in a while.

We really enjoyed seeing y'all again and can't wait to do it again.


  • I'm headed to the Tampa area next month--any suggestions for a casual Sunday lunch? I've never been to Ybor City...

    Always good to see you and even more Tania. We need to keep it at the Columbia for the next few. Next time please don't wears plaid shorts and a striped shirt.

    Last time in St Pete Beach we did the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City.
    Got their book and had an outstanding meal.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • That was fun. You two told some funny stories, and no one got arrested this time.

    And don't listen to AL, he thinks he's the fashion police, but I can assure you, he is not!
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!
    3 Large, 2 Smalls, 1 well-used Mini

    We have done BBQ (Kojacks), Mexican, an Ybor brewery and this took the cake (or the flan if you would)

    tons of places, columbia if you want to go to Ybor. What exact area will you be in?
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I must have missed something. What funny stories?
  • CrimsongatorCrimsongator Posts: 5,795
    We told those before you got there. Besides there was a whole different conversation going on across the table while you were calling in the plates of my car trying to get it towed

    It really was a great time today! So glad you and Tania were able to make it over. Tell her I'll be waiting to see if that picture turns up.

    Trying to figure out how to post pics from this new camera. I'm working on it though. :)

    wife and I love The Columbia! We ate lunch in Ybor City in Nov. we buy the 1902 Salad dressing (or whatever year it is) and have the salad at home but it is not the same as the fresh made ones at the restuarant. The service was outstanding and we love the ambience. The margaritas are not too bad either!
