Skipper's Smokehouse

Skipper's is a Tampa institution. It's the place to get a delicious seafood dinner (it was featured on Man Vs. Food) and catch some great local music. They have blues, jazz and jam nights, so there's often an opportunity to get up there. And the crowd is a funny mix of enthusiastic young musicians, veteran blues guys and old hippies. It's a local favorite and it's easy to see why.
