  1. After 25 years, Dia de los Muertos celebration in Dunedin canceled by hurricane


    Chalk up one more victim to Hurricane Irma: The huge Dia de los Muertos Fiesta that was originally planned for Saturday in Dunedin was scrapped for what would have been the 25th year of the Mexican folk heritage celebration.

    At last year's Dia de los Muertos, Casa Tina owner Tina Marie Avila (crouching) shows her "Ofrenda," or Day of the Dead alter. What would have been the 25th annual Dia de los Muertos Fiesta on Saturday had to be canceled this year because of Hurricane Irma. The folk festival will be back next year.

  3. 'The Snowman' has a star-studded cast based on a blockbuster murder novel, but it's a mess


    Mr. Alfredson, you could have saved it. We gave you all the tools — a star-studded cast, a blockbuster best-selling Scandinavian murder novel by Jo Nesbo, and three time Oscar winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker. So why is The Snowman such a jumbled nonsensical mess?

  5. Bar review: The 1895 Kitchen-Bar-Market in Tampa

    Bars & Spirits

    The new bar that Urban Juice Co. has transitioned into — 1895 Kitchen-Bar-Market in downtown Tampa — feels good in the "Southern comfort bar and kitchen" role in which it's cleverly marketed.

    The 1895 Kitchen-Bar-Market is in the old Franklin building in downtown Tampa.
