Florida RV Supershow

Yesterday & today Mary & I went to the Florida RV Supershow in Tampa. We've gone a bunch of times over the years. We were convinced we wanted a Winnebago Travato.

We belong to a bunch of Travato groups on Facebook & found out there were over 70 members parked together in the lot & hung out each night. One night Winnebago bought them all pizza! How cool is that?!? This Travato has a window decal like we used to have on our VW Eurovan camper. Each time you visit a new state, you add the decal.

Here we are with Smokey Bear. Apparently that's his real name. Not Smokey the Bear!

This is the 2020.5 Travato KL. It's much lest claustrophobic that the GL.

 The bathroom is in the back.

On the way home we stopped at La Segunda Bakery. They've been in business since 1915 & make the most amazing Cuban bread!

Stella & Google really wanted to try some when we got home.

Bern's Steakhouse

When Mary & I knew we were gonna be in Tampa overnight, we immediately made a reservation for Bern's Steakhouse. I don't think I've been here in over 20 years. Whenever I had assignments in Tampa, I always made dinner reservations before I would book my hotel or travel. One year I remember some of the photographers I was having dinner with, had to back out because Princess Diana was going to be there for dinner & they had to be outside for her arrival & departure. When we valeted the car we noticed fireworks down the street. We shot some pix before Lauren & Mike arrived.

I started with French Onion Soup Au Gratin.

Then I had Filet Mignon with fresh veggies from their farm.

After dinner you can go on a tour of the kitchen & wine cellar before going to the Harry Waugh Dessert Room.

 They use 400lbs of onions per night!

The kitchen is always so clean!

The wine cellar in the restaurant has 150,000 bottles. Their warehouse across the street houses an additional 600,000 bottles.

 The most expensive bottle is $49,000 from 1845.

Each dessert room has a private enclosed table. You can call the piano player with requests or pick a genre for the type of music you'd like in your room.

I can't believe I didn't take any pix of dessert!!! That's so unlike me!
