favorite brunch spot for women...
asked about a favorite brunch spot that women would
enjoy, the name 'Circles'
came up in a few conversations. Housed in a 1920s bungalow,
Circles' decor is best described as elegant simplicity.
You'll find tables topped with white linen, and walls
aesthetically graced with black-and-white photographs.
Holiday lights adorning the windows lend the eatery
a festive air. The food is varied enough to satiate
a plethora of appetites. 50 lunch and dinner treats
range from lobster bisque -- a hearty favorite with
real chunks of lobster floating in a cream base -- to
egg rolls, calamari, pasta, tuna dishes, meat, vegetarian
specialties and Thai dishes. Open on Sundays for brunch
it is a favorite with the locals.

Florida food and great fun...
casual fun! I live in Tampa and I'd like to tell other
women travelling to my part of the world about a funky
restaurant called Skippers
Smokehouse Restaurant & Oyster Bar. This Tampa
'institution' focuses on Florida cuisine enhanced by
the tastes of the Caribbean and Louisiana. Take a peek
at their menu
where you'll find everything from Clam Chowder and Caesar
Salad to Grouper Sandwiches and Grilled chicken breasts.
If you are travelling with kids of any age they will
love the crazy architecture and decor of this place
with its fun signs everywhere. This restaurant is also
a music venue with yop entertainment bands playing outdoors
in their back terrace space. Good food and great fun!
