World Famous Gaspar’s Grotto

WHERE: 1805 E. 7th Ave.

WHAT: Exactly what would happen if a pirate were to retire from pillaging, decide to use his remaining booty to invest in an establishment serving quality, Cuban and island-influenced foods and rums from around the world. This is Pirate Retirement.

WHEN (To Go): On Sunday mornings from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm Gaspar’s host the Booze Cruise Brunch Buffet featuring fruit, yogurt, bread, salad and cheese stations, a blue water raw bar and oh yes, a bloody Mary, Screwdriver and Tropical Mimosa Champagne Bar.

WHO (To Bring With You): Your friend that is basically broke. All day, everyday Gaspar’s runs its famous special – a shot and a beer for just two bucks. It’s cheep and so is the booze – PBR draft and well whiskey.

WHY: Because Pirates have more fun and if you live in Tampa it’s time for you to start embracing you inner Buccaneer. And because everyone likes some booty.
