Hey, Happy late new year everyone! It has been so long since I’m not writing for you, but everyone deserve a break, isn’t? Now that we are back on track for all our new year resolutions we might be into fitness, diets and juice detox, but as we decide to get fit we all deserve that cheat day that will calm all our cravings, wondering if by any chance a cheat day can become a festival with cheese and beer? Well, say no more, because the Tampa Bay Grilled cheese fest is back!
This year local vendors are coming from all over the Tampa Bay to get reunited in one place to serve to you the most amazing cheese meals you can ever imagine, like grilled cheese, burgers and sausages covered with cheese, and some other tasty creations along with beer, soda and other refreshments like apple cider slushies made just for you. Got a sweet tooth? Some desert vendors will be there too, like donuts covered with bacon and candies, cupcakes and ice cream.  Most festivals around Florida has the great special detail to add live music and be kid and pet-friendly, and The Grilled Cheese Festival won’t be the exception.
Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen because we know FLORIDA!!! and of course a jacket in case that gets chill in the afternoon. If this is something you might be interested to attend take a look of the list with the vendors this year:
