Gasparilla is Upon Us, But so is Good Beer

If you grew up in Tampa, you’ve become very familiar with loud booming sounds in January. Those sounds would be pirate’s canons because Tampa is cool enough to have a month-long celebration of Tampa’s quirky history. And of course there’s booze. Lots of it!

At Datz we’ll be closed on January 28, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all of our boozy Gasparilla offerings. Check ’em out below, mateys.

AAAAAAARGHHHHH.

We’ve Got ALL The Corned Beef + Whiskey | St. Patrick’s Day

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day and boy do we have a ton of rad stuff planned for local foodies.

We also have a cocktail that’s a really sweet (and boozy!) twist on a traditional Irish coffee. Because we live in such a warm climate, it only made sense to our Mixologist and General Manager, Morgan Zuch to make “Dublin Calling” with house-made cold brew coffee. Another extremely bright idea Morgan had was to make the whipped cream not just from scratch, but with a Guinness and Bailey’s Irish Cream reduction. It’s really, really, really good. Enjoy between and now Thursday, 3/17.
