Editorial Assistant — Things To Do, Pets

I am known as the events maven for the Tampa Bay Times. I dig up and write about thousands of events and activities to keep you and your family busy. Area event promoters keep my job interesting. After 32 years, I've seen everything from "Eggstravaganzas" and "Spooktaculars," to naked mud wars and New Year's Eve fetish parties. Who wouldn't love writing about that? If you know of something interesting happening, shoot me a note.
