Saturday night during Tampa Am weekend is always the night for the huge party/ show. This year’s party was extra big considering it was the 20-Year Anniversary Party.When the evening starts off with antics from the “Senator”…things are bound to get epic. Cuates, The Shrine, Killer Mike and Souls of Mischief all provided killer sounds and entertainment all night long, while the staff at CZAR kept the drinks flowing. – Nicks

I stopped by Part 2 of 4 of the 93 ‘Til Infinity art show series at The Bricks last weekend. Four of the many decks that were submitted by various artists for the show were chosen to be printed on limited edition Skatepark of Tampa boards and will be available for sale all across the world. There were also a bunch of killer old classic photos of some pretty legendary people skating the park over the years. Check the Upcoming Events page on the mag for all the festivities. Also, be sure to check out SPoT 20 Year Experience Episode 3 with Felipe Gustavo below. – Nicks
