Carnival of Cities for 2 December 2010
Welcome to the December 2, 2010 edition of the Carnival of Cities, where we tour the world in a single blog post. We were supposed to publish yesterday but ran into some technical glitches; thanks for your patience.
If you’d like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog (December 29 is open) please contact me at Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!
Off we go….
Cities in the Americas
Tampa, Florida, USA Traci Suppa presents World’s Largest Spanish Restaurant, Tampa, FL posted at Go BIG or Go Home, saying, “As we discovered on a recent “date night,” the world’s largest Spanish restaurant is not in Spain at all. The 105-year old Columbia Restaurant is the jewel of Ybor City, the Cuban enclave in Tampa, FL.”
New York, New York, USA Jennifer Miner presents Thanksgiving Parade Floats and Balloon Pictures posted at The Vacation Gals, saying, “Here are some great photographs of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.”
Detroit, Michigan, USA Dominique King presents “The Thinker” ponders life in Detroit posted at Midwest Guest, saying, “This casting of Rodin’s iconic statue, “The Thinker”, surveys the Woodward Avenue scene from his prominent perch in front of the Detroit Institute of Arts”
Mendoza, Argentina Timothy Scott presents A Decadent Symphony of Wine and Food in Mendoza, Argentina – Luxury Wine Tour posted at Luxury Latin America Blog, saying, “Eating and drinking for days in Mendoza, Argentina.”
Cities in Europe
Bude, Cornwall, UK Jack Norell presents Leopallooza Festival in Bude, Cornwall posted at Eyeflare – Travel Articles and Tips, saying, “Leopallooza Festival is now in it’s 5th year, after starting out as a summer get together for a group of friends in 2006. A couple of touring bands heard about this, showed up, and it’s all gone from there. In 2010, there were 2,000 people selling out all tickets in advance.”
That concludes this edition, and thank you for visiting.
