Family Friendly Dinner and a Movie at Studio Movie Grill Opens in Tampa

No Comments Uncategorized

Studio Movie Grill has recently opened in north Tampa at the University Square Mall. Their state of the art theatre and newly renovated high tech theatre is a perfect place to brain the whole family for dinner and a movie (or even date night if you are that lucky.)

Compared to the Cinebistro in Hyde Park Village or Wesley Chapel, Studio Movie Grill was definitely more inviting to families as the other dine-in theaters have an over 18 age policy. They have a kids menu too which is always nice to have.

The seats were super comfy, lots of room, the sound was amazing and the 3D movie (Big Hero 6) was the best ones I have seen to date in a theatre. Service was great and we had an awesome time too. Can’t beat it!

And I’m certain of this, more than less.

5 Tips To Survive a Hospital (AKA Parent Prison) Stay With Your Child

No Comments Uncategorized

For me, a hospital is very much like the only prison I will ever know. I watch a few random prison TV shows (who doesn’t) and have seen OITNB and feel like a hospital stay with kids is very similar. You have to know the tricks to survive. It keeps you away from loved ones. Some people on the “inside” can tell you the reality of how it is and what you need to do to survive. And if you make enemies, watch out. Because they will hold your freedom (discharge papers) hostage or at least tie them up in approval land and it could take much longer for you to leave.

I was sad to hear about Robin Williams death for a number of reasons. I believe depression itself is masked by many people in so many ways. And also can come on to anyone during any point in their life. Read more
