Where to find air conditioning, good speakers, and loads of GOP women at RNC

9

August

Mary Anne Carter, former senior adviser to Gov. Rick Scott and now public policy director of theYG Network founded and run by former Eric Cantor advisers, is putting together a cool "Woman Up Pavilion" in the Channelside area near the Tampa Bay Times Forum during the Republican National Convention. YG has 14,000 square feet in a former Chamber of Commerce space (right near Hooters), and will be open every day from 9 a.m. to midnight during the convention. YG's Woman Up Pavilion will feature lectures and panel discussions, a coffee shop, vendors, and a women's suffrage museum.

That's prime real estate located right where convention busses drop people, so it should see lots of traffic. Carter expects 1,500 or more people a day to attend. On that Wednesday of RNC week, they will also host a salute to women elected officials.
