Mr. Dunderbak's: Oktoberfest Year Round

Schnitzel and a pilsner, coming right up.

Dunderbak's, 2019
University Mall,was a very different place in the 70's. Disco was still raging (probably), bell bottoms were considered cool (I imagine), and Dunderbak's was a franchise store with over 30 locations, one of which was located in University Mall (fact). Of the original 30 stores, three remain. Lucky for us, one of those three stores is right here in Tampa. In 1997, the current owners bought the University location and turned it into a new type of restaurant. One that fuses traditional German foods with American favorites. The beer list grew, and in 2016, Dunderbrau opened (joining a growing list of craft breweries). In 2019, Dunderbak's now serves over 500 different beers by the bottle, 65 on their draft list, their menu is as diverse as one could hope for, and they host weekly homebrew meetings. As a matter of fact, they seemingly have something going on every day of the week! But that's not why you came here…

Snow on 7th: An Ybor Christmas Tradition

Coming to a Centro near you!


Christmas Tree in Centro Ybor, 2017

Halloween is officially over and it's now time to focus our attention on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the new year. Unfortunately, very little happens, event wise, for Thanksgiving. On the bright side, the holiday festivities start very early here in Tampa with the tree lighting happening in Centro Ybor on Wednesday. Mayor Buckhorn made a special appearance as did police chief Brian Dugan.

Children Enjoying The Tree, 2017
