TAMPA, Fla., – October 2, 2020
Happy First Friday of October! To kick off spooky season, we’ve curated some new activities, recipes, streaming programs, and sports updates to start your weekend. Temperatures for both Tampa and Fayetteville are starting to drop – how nice was this past Wednesday in Florida? Hopefully, this break from the summer heat is here to stay. Our Tech Talk this week walks you through the best tips to navigate Hulu. Features like ‘My Stuff’ and viewing parties can help you enjoy this streaming platform to the fullest.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are the 2020 Stanley Cup Champions! The Bolts sealed the deal on Monday against the Dallas Stars and brought the cup home to Tampa. This weekend you can catch the Bucs as they face the Los Angeles Chargers here at home. Busch Gardens’ Howl-o-Scream event is taking a new approach this year in compliance with social distancing. There is limited capacity admission and you’ll need a reservation, but you can still enjoy this annual Tampa favorite. For a creative and October-themed activity, check out 65 pumpkin carving ideas.
Our recipes of the week include a Mediterranean Garlic Shrimp Pasta. In a light sauce with garlic, fresh tomatoes, white wine, and lemon juice – it’s next level delicious!
