Fuhgidabowdit Pizzeria to celebrate grand opening in FishHawk; Dots clothing reopens in Brandon

FISHHAWK RANCH — If you live in FishHawk, you may have already discovered one of your neighborhood's newest restaurants, Fuhgidabowdit Pizzeria.

The family eatery opened late last year, and business has been growing steadily. Most of its customers are people who have been going to neighboring businesses at Park Square, noticed the new restaurant and stopped in to check it out.

Now, the Fuhgidabowdit folks want to inform a broader audience about their business. They're holding their official grand opening celebration on April 16, starting at 1 p.m.

"We want to put ourselves out there and say 'Here we are. We've got a great product, and it's right around the corner,' " said Chris Gatley, Fuhgidabowdit's marketing manager.

Fuhgidabowdit traces its heritage to Denver, where it's a popular and established family restaurant with a couple of locations. Johnny Kolwick and Mike Anich were fans of the pizza there and got to know the owners. Kolwick and Anich moved to Hillsborough County and arranged to use the name, menu and recipes from the Colorado restaurants.

One planned highlight of the grand opening bash will be live music from local bands. Gatley said the owners are looking for bands in just about any style — pop, rock, alternative, country, hip-hop or whatever — as long as it's not too extreme for the family clientele the restaurant hopes to attract. Bands interested in performing at the grand opening event should contact Gatley.

Besides pizza, Fuhgidabowdit offers many Italian favorites, including pasta, stromboli and calzones, salads and subs. Fuhgidabowdit offers free delivery within FishHawk Ranch (with a minimum order of $15) and will deliver in surrounding neighborhoods for charge.

Fuhgidabowdit Pizzeria is located at 16132 Churchview Drive in Park Square. It's open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. (813) 681-2000 or parksquarepizza.com.

Women's clothing store reopens after makeover in Regency Square

BRANDON — If you like shopping for women's fashions at affordable prices, you're probably already familiar with Dots, either from its Regency Square location or from its more than 400 stores in 26 states.

The Brandon store has been closed for a while, but reopened on last week after a major remodeling.

The remodeling has created a whole new look for the store, Dots officials say, with a more open shopping area and larger fitting rooms, with decor highlighted by touches of pink and gray.

Dots sells casual and business wear for women. The company creates its own lines of clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories, so it can offer prices that most shoppers can afford.

Dots is located at 2466 W Brandon Blvd. in Regency Square. It's open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon until 6 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call (813) 662-3763 or dots.com.

    President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, officials familiar with the plans said Friday. The new restrictions, aimed at preventing security threats from entering the United States, could go into effect Sunday after the conclusion of a 90-day policy review undertaken as part of the administration's original travel ban. Though the restrictions would differ for each country, people living in the targeted nations could be prevented from traveling to the United States or could face increased scrutiny as they seek to obtain a visa.
