Anyone got any good Tampa, Florida jokes?

I’m going to Tampa today. Or St. Petersburg. Not sure the difference. That’s weird, right? Bad news is I’ll be offline for most of the day probably, so the world is going to have to entertain itself in my absence. Good news is that I’ll probably be frothing with so much rage from dealing with the whole airport charade that I’ll come back with a thousand posts worth of material. 
Since I’ve never been there I did a quick search on the internet to try to learn about the local culture. I just really like to do the off the beaten path stuff, you know what I mean? Find little hidden gems away from the touristy spots. I’m kind of an adventurous sort. Just give me my back pack, and a sturdy pair of shoes, and I’ll be at home in no time, anywhere in the world. My outlook on life is kind of like one giant white dude dreadlock if you think about it.
So here’s what my research turned up. Tell me if I’ve got an accurate picture of the scene down there.

    If you want to watch porn and get a blow job in the bathroom — Paradise.

    It's a gay bar, but if you're a straight guy you could easily double your bounty.

    Boston proper? Nowhere really. The Paradise is a trip. Try BKs in Rozzie, or Chelsea Walk Pub if you want the rill dill (via depression)

    Turns out it's St Pete everyone. Didn't want you all to worry all night. They made me eat five bowls of paella somehow.

    oof I'm late on this post. I've been to St.Pete once to visit the Salvador Dali museum, which is fucking cool if you like museums/art/surrealism. I do remember going to a spanish tapas restaurant called Ceviche which was delicious and pricey, however my friend's new gay lover picked up that check. I don't know what else st.pete has to offer, good luck.
