Alessi - Tampa's best Bakery since 1912 - 01/14/11 06:05 PM
Alessi - Tampa's best bakery since 1912 Of course, that's MY OPINION, that Alessi is Tampa's best bakery since 1912. It is a tradition of a lifetime for my almost-sixty-year old husband ! Alessi is always a stopping point whenever visiting Tampa. The tradition began for me in the late 1970's. As departing Tampa, a stop by Alessi's to pick up Cuban sandwiches "for the road" was always a must. Now, in the times of the internet, I read rave reviews about Alessi's Cuban sandwiches. The last time I was in Tampa, I capured a few colorful images of Allessi's creations. These edibles are ART !!

Photos of inside of the USS Yorktown capture the essence of Navy life. The ship has been re-fitted into a museum, capturing the essence of Navy life on board an aircraft carrier. The entrance puts you in the 40,000 square foot "hanger bay" where exhibits of airplanes are on display. The tour twists and winds around through several areas of the ship, including the "make ready" room for pilots, and the 888 foot long aircraft carrier deck, where you can walk and view the various types of aircraft.
