ZooTampa at Lowry Park invites guests to take their yoga practice to a new habitat this weekend.


Unlike other places this time of year, we’re lucky enough to call January bearable. 

In Florida, it’s one of the only months we can go outside, enjoy sitting by a fire and maybe even bundle up. 

With that in mind, the City of Auburndale is taking advantage of the weather by hosting an event that will get you and your family outside.

Next, if you’re looking for something neat to do over in Lakeland this Friday, check out the event I chose. Florida Southern College is putting a twist on their usual Frank Lloyd Wright tours — you may even want to bring a flashlight!

I’m sure many of you have caught an episode of the buzz-worthy, hidden-camera TV show “Impractical Jokers” — or heard of it, at least. The group of pranksters are constantly making viewers at home laugh uncontrollably, as well as each other. Murr, a jokester from the show, and N’SYNC legend Joey Fatone are pairing up for a night you won’t forget. Read on to hear which location in Orlando you can meet them at.

Finally, Yoga in the Wild will put on four sessions throughout the year and the first one is this Saturday morning. Zip over to ZooTampa for a yoga class suitable for all skill levels in a brand new location. You may even get to hang out with some pretty wild animals!
