Conference trail leads to Tampa
A 1910 warehouse that once housed broken-down streetcars was the gathering place on Oct. 17 for Bay area voluntary bar leaders to celebrate Tampa as the host city for the 2019 Voluntary Bar Leaders Conference. The now modernized neighborhood hangout with hip bars and restaurants is one of many transformations underway on the waterfront in downtown Tampa. Water taxis on the Hillsborough River, streetcars connecting to the Historic Ybor City and rentable bikes all make traveling the city convenient, fun, and affordable. More information will follow from conference chair Vivian Cortes Hodz in the next newsletter. For now, mark your calendar for July 12-13.
