Spring Break is right around the corner, and you know what that means Tampa Bay: people driving way too slow across the bridges and lots of "WOOOOOO!" screams from top-down rented convertibles. The invasion of college students that have worn at least a sweater since October is forthcoming, and though it's great for the economy, it's not exactly the best thing for those that commute. Traffic comin'. Oh, it's comin'.

But we've got Tampa Bay Beer Week kicking off this weekend, which has become one of the premiere festivals in America for brews, brewers, and all things hop-and-malt related. The Ren Fest and the Strawberry Fest continue, and there's lots of other events to kick off March the right way.

Here's our Top 10 Things to Do in Tampa Bay this weekend. We'll start with foam... but not from a beer...
