New downtown Tampa shopping card offered

Here's a little incentive to explore all that's happening in downtown Tampa. The Tampa Downtown Partnership is selling an Arts & Entertainment Pass that includes restaurant deals and admission to three museums and the Tampa Theatre.

The passes went on sale Monday and cost $30, less than half the $78.75 retail value. Good through Sept. 30, they are available at the Tampa Theatre and participating museums — the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, the Henry B. Plant Museum and the Tampa Bay History Center.

The restaurant deals are good at Pizza Fusion, Spain Restaurant, Tunduree, Kahwa Coffee, Malio's Prime Steakhouse and Mise en Place and typically involve a free glass of wine, appetizer or dessert.

The partnership has tried Summertime Savings cards in the past but this is the first shopping card for purchase. The group is marketing them as gifts for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Teacher Appreciation Week. I'd like to think downtown sells itself, but every bit helps.
