Default Any Brits in Tampa or surrounding areas?!

My husband and I got married a few months ago (I'm American, he's English) and are setting up camp in Tampa over the next few months.

We've lived in London for 4 years and we're keen to meet people in the area so we can hold onto some British-ness!

We're both in our mid/late 20s, young professionals.....my husband is dying to find some bars around here that show rugby and the footie....anyone interested, give us a shout!!!

Hi there - we have just moved to Tampa ourselves. My wife is American and I am from Northern Ireland. We can certainly recommend a bunch of bars that will show both football and rugby - typically these are Irish pubs.

Check out MacDintons Pub, Dubliner, etc.

I think most Brits tend to avoid Florida, but you might find one or two around. Maybe put a "personals" ad in the paper?

If you like bars and suchlike, there are three main areas in Tampa. One is the above mentioned area around MacDintons, which is known as Hyde Park (Or increasing, SoHo these days - completely gay if you ask me but they are trying to boost its image in typical shallow US style). But, MacDintons and Dubliner are a couple of my favourites and good for the footie, etc as mentioned.

The second area is Channelside, down by the port, which is constantly developing and is good for a night out, right on the waterfront and well worth a visit.

Finally you have Ybor city, which is slightly to the east and is probably the biggest collection of bars/clubs in town. A safe area, however, make sure you don't go wandering out of the immediate area.
