“Are you ready to challenge the Python and live?”

Part of the infamous, somewhat truthful tagline for Busch Garden’s forgotten roller coaster, Python, brewed from the mysterious death of a 39 year old who died shortly after experiencing this reptilian attraction.

Florida State Fair 2014

Hipster Fun at the Florida State Fair!

Finally I can write a piece on my city of Tampa Bay, the sibling of Orlando. The day was like one of the many perfect weekend days that Florida is known for. It was also a day for me to indulge into the smells of fried food heaven, the hackling Midway gaming men, the sunshine state’s agricultural world, the local art, and the quickly put together rides that are staples of the Florida State Fair.


My Wizarding Experience at A Celebration of Harry Potter

Muggles, Witches, and Wizards all came dressed to celebrate The Boy Who Lived this past weekend at Universal Studios Orlando.

It was absolutely epic!


HIPSTER Photo of the Week: Baby it’s Cold Outside

This past week brought about artic weather all across the United States. The bay area of Florida was even affected with lows around 32 degrees. I know, I know that our fellow Northerners would laugh at such a proclamation, but for the Floridians used to the year round tropical weather, anything below 60 degrees causes us to pull out our coats.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes comes to Tampa!

A small piece of New York City has landed in the center of the central Florida ThemePark world. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes premiered in Tampa this past Thursday to guests at the Straz Center. The guests were even treated to a grand red carpet event to welcome the lovely ladies, and Santa, as they were escorted down the aisle with Tampa Bay’s finest men in blue.

The holiday season has officially arrived in central Florida and I was able to do a quick visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as they prepared to set the stage for the spectacular Christmas Town celebration. An event that will combine 15,000 sq. ft. of real snow to play in, a deliciously prepared feast by Mrs. Claus, more lights than you can imagine, and oh yeah the thrilling rides that keep Hipsters returning to Busch Gardens. This event will run on select nights from November 29th until December 23rd of this year.

The items this year are the Pumpkin Pie donut, the Glazed Pumpkin Munchkins, the Pumpkin Muffin, the Pumpkin White Chocolate Latte (my personal favorite), the Frozen Coffee Pumpkin Coolatta, and a new breakfast sandwich called the Angus Steak Big N’Toasted.  I had the opportunity to try each item earlier this week and I must say that I was in sweet pumpkin heaven! All I needed was my couch, a comfy blanket, and Charlie Brown in It’s the Great Pumpkin on my TV to complete the moment.

If you’re ever in the Tampa Bay area be sure to stop by one of my favorite Dunkin’ Donut locations, 4012 N Armenia Ave, and the manager, Maria, will provide you with a deliciously exclusive donut available there called the Coconut Guava Donut. A local favorite that is a jelly filled donut with toasted coconut and frosting on top. I’m not a coconut person, but this donut was done very well.
Until next time, have fun today at the ThemeParks will your free pumpkin coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts 🙂
