And in This Corner…
Up the road a piece in St. Petersburg, the Ringside Café serves delicious burgers, cold beer, and frequent live music. During the recent Tampa Bay Blues Festival, the Ringside hosted Texan Lucky Peterson and the place was packed with music fans from as far away New Jersey and Texas. It was so crowded that the club was at capacity when my buddy and I arrived. As a result, we spent the first 30 minutes of Peterson’s show watching from the club’s windows (see photo).
Even as busy as they were, the staff remained exceptionally accommodating and efficient throughout Peterson’s two-set show. And even with the out-of-towner infusion, the Ringside still had an air of neighborhood hangout, with locals happy to offer inside tips on other area must-see restaurants, clubs, and attractions.
