Hillsborough firefighters share a little beefcake at calendar preview party

BEEFCAKE AT CALENDAR PREVIEW PARTY

Does the thought of a bunch of beefy hunks buffing their red trucks make you want to call 911? Here's an event for you. Hillsborough County firefighters are offering a chance to get some one-on-one time with their "hottest heroes" when they hold a preview party Saturday for the release of their 2010 calendar. The event runs from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Ritz Ybor, 1503 E Seventh Ave., Tampa. Tickets are $10. Call (813) 690-4850 for more details. Ages 18 and older only. Proceeds benefit the Hillsborough County Firefighters Charities and the Hillsborough County Firefighters Benevolence Association.

AAA expects more Thanksgiving travelers

AAA Auto Club South notes another sign of economic recovery: More people are expected to travel during the Thanksgiving weekend. Look for a 3 percent increase in Florida compared to last year and 1.4 percent nationwide, AAA says. That adds up nationwide to 38.4 million people traveling at least 50 miles next weekend. "We take the projected increase in travelers as a sign that economic recovery may finally be taking root and we believe many Americans certainly share the same hope," said Kevin Bakewell, senior vice president for AAA Auto Club South. AAA projects 86 percent of travelers will drive, reflecting growing dissatisfaction with air travel.
