I live in Wesley Chapel also. I bounce around but the outpost in south tampa is a buckeye bar, good food, solid drinks and they play all the buckeye songs during the games with the commentary on the speakers. Also O'briens in Brandon is also a solid buckeye bar. It gets pretty packed, I think they even tailgate outside before the place opens lol. Same type of atmosphere as outpost but bigger and a little more rowdy.
And now I just realized I need to change my user name haha sorry Tampabuckeye85
Hey Guys. Long time reader, first time poster. I am originally from Dublin, Ohio but moved to Florida when I was younger. I am flying up tonight from Tampa with one of my buddies for the game. Sadly he is an Auburn fan as that is where he went to school. We agreed to check out eachothers favorite teams stadiums/towns to see what both were all about, and unfortunately we went to the Auburn vs Georgia game last year and I believe we all know how that one ended. I am determined to show him that it isn't just in the south where folks get down. I was wondering if anyone could provide us with any campus bars or good spots to hit for some cocktails and beers for thursday and friday, and then if there was any good tailgaiting spots or bars to hit before the game saturday. Any feedback is much appreciated and thank you in advance for any help.
