Have asked for Oriole Bird to stop by Sat. 3/7, behind Sec 210, 211 for pics around 2:30 again. Perhaps a "Hangout Meet-up" after the game. Checking w/ushers for a spot, as Findaddys is no more. Things to do, see, go.....(Add your Favorites, please) Strawberry Festival in Plant City, about an Hour drive, (through Sunday, March 8) - lots of fun and eats live music and of course strawberries every way. . http://www.flstrawberryfestival.com/entertainment/ Pirates (less than 35 minutes away) in Bradenton - See the Yanks visit the Pirates in nearby Bradenton, Thurs 3/5 @1pm & still catch the O's 7pm game.
