Would you believe me when I tell you. You are queen of my heart. Can you feel my love buzz. – Nirvana. The cooler weather is taking me back to those “Nirvana” happy days when we in Tampa Bay enjoy football, baseball and hockey. Most of all, the start of Fall makes for great times with lots of do around town.
First, we must give kudos to Julie Weintraub’s, Hands Across The Bay, whose Tampa Bay’s Dancing with the Stars ~ Broadway Edition on October 1st was in her own words, “The best DWTS ever!” The dancing was incredible and “celebrities” around Tampa Bay set the bar high but Sarah Jon Porreca rocked the stage and took home the trophy. An amazing night was enjoyed by many. Visit: DancingForCharity.com
