Great food in Tampa

November 9th, 2017

Do you ever feel that there aren’t new places to go either to eat, have a drink or even have fun? Yeah, I used to have the same feeling. Sometimes it looks like we don’t have more option than going to the drive-thru of one of those popular fast food chains and get a burger and fries, boring isn’t?

Folk Artist, Poet, Librarian: Meet RhondaK

September 15th, 2017

Decked in dreadlocks and constantly running about in designer high heels, RhondaK, a.k.a. Rhonda Kitchens, is an academic librarian by day and fantastic folk artist at night.  Her eccentric tastes are reflected in her works.  Though she paints hundreds of images, the artist explains that she is “creeped out by canvas.”  Instead, she utilizes wood planks, slats, and boards, sometimes interlaced with ropes, other times nailed to another post, to create her pieces.   And, even with her interest in visual art she refused to lose her other passion:  writing. Rhonda saw herself... Read More
