RIP to the Tampa Mutiny. Tampa’s failed MLS team.

This Jerk Hut location doubled as a nightclub for USF students on weekdays. Eventually it closed down and relocated north near I-275.

Mr. Dunderbak’s started out in the University Square Mall and now they have own location and are brewing their own craft beer while also being one of the best places to celebrate Oktoberfest and the World Cup.

University Mall was one of the best malls in Tampa until Westshore and International Plaza were created and eventually lured department stores and retailers away from the University area.

Comments Off on NEWS: HART bus driver fatally stabbed this past weekend in Tampa

HART bus driver, Thomas Dunn, was fatally stabbed by a passenger this past weekend in Tampa on Nebraska Avenue. The passenger involved in the incident has been charged with one count of murder.

According to Fox 13 News this incident “comes roughly 5 months after Dunn spoke at a December 3rd  meeting where he raised concern about the safety of bus drivers after he says a woman who was a passenger assaulted him by spitting in his face and trying to break his arm”.

The CEO of HART, Ben Limmer, released a statement:

“We are devastated by the tragic events that took place today involving our HART bus operator. We are working with the Tampa Police Department as they conduct their investigation into this horrific matter,”

“We offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the bus operator, as well as to all of our HART colleagues.”

Local transit advocate and former Hillsborough County Commissioner Mark Sharpe responded as well to the incident:
