The Tampa Convention Center's Sail Pavilion announced this week that it will renew its popular Brews & Bites Food Truck Rally again for 2014. Located on Tampa's RiverWalk, adjacent to the convention center, it will take place every second Friday throughout the year, the next one being Jan. 10.
The Jan. 10 gathering from 6 to 10 p.m. will feature specialty Captain Morgan drinks to celebrate the upcoming Gasparilla Pirate Fest, which will be Jan. 25.
"This event has become increasingly popular with locals and visitors alike," said Eric Blanc, director of marketing at the convention center. "Each month the crowd has grown, so continuing Brews & Bites into 2014 was an easy call."
The pet-friendly Sail Pavilion has a 360-degree waterfront bar and has hosted events such as National Dog Day celebration, a Howl-O-Ween pet costume contest, and most recently an Ugly Sweater Party.
The Sail Pavilion on the Riverwalk is at 333 S Franklin St. in Tampa.
