GaYbor Member of the Week: Florida Jean Company

New to GaYBOR, the Florida Jean Company opened their doors at 1714 E. 7th Ave. Here you find an impressive selection of designer jeans and tons of other fun things too. Their first location was in St. Petersburg at 401 Cory Ave. Stop by and say “welcome” to our new neighbors today.

Nephew of the Week: Brian Robert

Meet Brian. When he is not busy working at Hamburger Mary’s, he is busy hitting the books hard and going to school. It’s not all work and studying for Brian, though; he has been spotted out partying in GaYBOR! Wink wink!

Great Job GaYBOR!!!

The many cruise ships bring a lot of passengers to Tampa. They also bring a lot of fun crew members too.  The crew members like to jump on the streetcar and visit GaYBOR/Ybor City. Many good friends are made over the season. When the Norwegian Cruise Lines “Star” cruise ship went to Boston for the summer, she took some great friends with her. Last week we had a fantastic surprise! Where do you think the crew members go when they are on vacation?  They flew from Boston to Tampa for their vacation! Of all the ports they visited this year, Tampa was their favorite. The group told us that GaYBOR has the friendliest people and the most fun places to party.

Another surprise we learned is that Carnival Cruise Lines is changing cruise ships that dock at the Port of Tampa. Carnival’s newer and bigger Pride cruise ship will be replacing Carnival’s Legend this fall!

GREAT JOB EVERYBODY!!!  Viva La GaYBOR!!!

Pam Iorio In The House

We had a surprise meeting with former Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio at the fantastic new Chinese restaurant, Yummy House, on Hillsborough Ave. The temporary appointed CEO for the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County was happy and that all is now well with the board and the new Executive Director Kelley Parris. “She will do a great job,” she offered.

The area on East Hillsborough Ave. has many fond memories to the former Tampa mayor. She graduated from King High School just a few blocks from the modernized, replotted and developed section.

“This was a vacant warehouse distribution district that needed to be re-developed for the community. I’m so proud to see all the positive changes with commerce, business and residential housing in this particular area that happened under my administration as Tampa’s mayor,” she touted.

We introduced our Italian friend Lenny to the former Madame Mayor and he made mention of his opening a new restaurant that is coming to Ybor City. “We make everything homemade including our famous Italian gelato!” Lenny chimed. Mayor Iorio said, “Count me in. I love gelato.”

She was so interested in and excited about the recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings in favor of GLBT dishing 1rights, and the new mayor’s job performance.

We hear, “Pam for Governor” and “Iorio for Senate” talk all around Tampa Bay and elsewhere. What are her future political plans? Shrugging, she just smiled. But we know that something is going on!

Pam Iorio is currently a “Leadership Speaker and Advisor” here in Tampa. You can read more about what she’s doing now at www.pamiorio.com.

Always great chatting with you, Ms. Mayor.
