HIPSTER Photo of the Week: Baby it’s Cold Outside

This past week brought about artic weather all across the United States. The bay area of Florida was even affected with lows around 32 degrees. I know, I know that our fellow Northerners would laugh at such a proclamation, but for the Floridians used to the year round tropical weather, anything below 60 degrees causes us to pull out our coats.

ThemeParkHipster’s New Year’s Resolutions 2014

Whelp, it’s a new year again and like most people I’ve made resolutions for 2014; however, my resolutions involve animals of Africa, food from France, and a voyage on the Titanic ThemeParkHipster style!

I am determined to conquer my ThemePark resolutions this year. Last year I procrastinated half way through, which led to my disappointing letdown of the 2013 goals. But Hipsters please trust me when I say that I will do it this year…seriously, I’m for real (I write this as I think of the readers laughing at my failed attempt to convince the masses of my determination).

Feel free to post any of your pictures or stories here.

Enjoy!

A small piece of New York City has landed in the center of the central Florida ThemePark world. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes premiered in Tampa this past Thursday to guests at the Straz Center.
