Check out Bob Buckhorn's gift to Fla Dems at convention



It's no secret Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is a top prospect to run for governor in 2018. In case any of the Democratic activists attending the state Democratic convention in Orlando this weekend failed to know of Buckhorn's interest, hizzoner deposited gifts in their goodle bags: Ybor City coffee beans and a recipe card for brewing a better Florida that woiuld be topped with "Tampa swagger."

From the recipe card: Grind coffee beans to extract quality. Bring water to a boil. Steep roast in hot water. Mix all other ingredients until transparent. Cover to insure all Floridians. Remove from heat when aroma is that of a united and vibrant state state. Press to remove grinds, discimination, and gridlock. Let cool under strong environmental protections. Divide into fair districts. Top with a sprinkle of Tampa swagger. Enjoy for generations!
