emergency foodie excursion tomorrow from Tampa/St Pete?

rebecca.kukla | May 19, 2009 06:17 PM

OK, so 3 of my friends and I were supposed to go boating on Monday, and it rained. So we rescheduled for tomorrow - and it will rain. We need to have a fun day tomorrow - we can't have our hopes of fun deflated twice in a row! But what can one do in the rain in the middle of a weekday around here? Once you've gotten yourself in the mood for a day out on a boat with a six pack, a wake board, and some tunes, another round of the Dali museum really doesn't hit the spot.

I'm thinking a serious food excursion would be fun. Can any of you think of a place that would be a reasonable drive from Tampa/St Pete that would be a food adventure? It could either be a really great splurge restaurant, or - even better - some strange local fabulous place that would feel like an adventure. But just going out for yet another local lunch somewhere decent in St Pete or Tampa is not going to make up for two days of lost boating, so I need ideas! Creative ideas are welcome.

Thanks for any help!
