Hey, Looking for some cool things to do in and around around the neighborhood this weekend? Check this out!
SECRET THAI ESCAPE
One of the best kept secrets of even long time Tampanians is the Wat Tampa, a Buddhist Thai Temple located in the southeast Palm River area at 5306 Palm River Rd. Every Sunday, rain or shine, people flock to Wat Tampa, a Buddhist Thai Temple, for its authentic Thai (NOT thigh) food. Overlooking the Palm River, its weekly markets are so popular, some goods and most food run out before lunchtime. Happens every weekend between 10am & 12pm. This is a great Sunday brunchtime activity!
