Who loves coffee? More importantly, who needs coffee?

Coffee lovers and coffee needers, this is your event! The Tampa Bay Coffee and Art Festival (TBCAF) is happening soon. If you want to enjoy some of the best local and regional coffee roasters and some beautiful art, this is going to be your thing. The mission of TBCAF is to inspire creative expression and the arts and enjoy coffee while doing so. Not only will you be able to sip on some hot (or iced) java, but you will also have the opportunity to enjoy treats from food trucks.

So mark your calendar for all the fun that will take place on October 8th from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. It’s in Brandon at 1310 John Moore Road.

This event will attract coffee roasters from all around the state. You’ll be able to sample craft coffee brews, and you can find out how these magical coffee cultivators work their craft.

They will also be holding coffee panels, which everyone who is in attendance will be able to join. If you’re the type who likes to know how the behind-the-scenes, you will learn quite a bit here. But you don’t have to feel like you have to be a coffee snob to attend. This is for those just getting in the coffee game as well as coffee aficionados.

You can pair food from the food trucks with your coffee, and you can also check out the art exhibit which is called Caffeinated. Florida artists will feature all of their creative caffeine and coffee concepts. And if you are so inspired, you may want to purchase and take home a piece for yourself.

There will also be live musical entertainment throughout the event.

If you think this sounds like something you want to attend, you can find out about tickets here.

Froggy’s Favorite Coffee Mugs

When you start your day before the sun is up in the five o’clock hour, it always helps to have some coffee to get you going. MJ is a very strange bird in that he doesn’t need coffee to start his day. He’s a ball of chatty energy on his own. But I need both tea and coffee, and Fester has a splash of coffee with his 15 packets of sugar and 12 ounces of cream, and Froggy drinks coffee and sometimes energy drinks.

I, personally, enjoy drinking coffee on the weekends because that’s when I drink it out of a mug (at work, it’s out of a Styrofoam cup). Drinking coffee in a mug is a nice, relaxing ritual.

Froggy came up with his list of his favorite coffee mugs. Here are the “mug” shots and what he had to say about each.

  • Dirty Bird Coffee Mug

    The first mug is one I love because it has every single bird on it that has a name that sounds dirty, including the tufted titmouse, which is my favorite bird.

  • Father’s Day Mug With My Lil Homies

    The second mug is one of my favorites because it was the first mug given to me by my kids on my first Father’s Day.

  • News Channel 8 Coffee Mug

    The News Channel 8 mug means a lot because it was given to me live on the news and live on-air on the MJ Morning Show by the news anchor Avery Cotten, who is class personified. I applied to win a mug online and kept losing so they brought one to me.

  • Rodfather Coffee Mug

    And finally, my Rodfather mug made the list because it was given to me by Roxanne on mÿ birthday, supposedly because I love fishing and Godfather movies. And for some reason the coffee always tastes better in this mug.
