News Talk Florida’s Weekly Planner Includes Convention, Cars, Coffee

Beer and spirits also among options in the weekly planner

Summer is really heating up, and that means some typical hot weather options are in the offering this week in our Weekly Planner.  It’s time to get inside, maybe have a drink or two, and take in some of the indoor fare that Tampa Bay has to offer.  For those willing to brave the heat, there is a concert in Vinoy Park, and a historic walking tour.

This is also the week of MetroCon, Tampa’s convention for anime.  For fans, it is a long-awaited event.  For crowd-watchers, it is a good opportunity to see people in costume.
