WOW! We are so honored to have been voted Best Local Blogger in Creative Loafing Tampa’s Best of the Bay Awards.

Behind this Blog are Dexter Fabian, Ysanne Taylor, and Andrew Harlan. ilovetheburg.com was founded 10 years ago by Brian Bailey and Dexter with a vision: To celebrate the local personalities, artists, and businesses of the Sunshine City.

We’ve been able to do what we do for more than a decade thanks to a host of amazing sponsors who share our vision of what the Burg is and what it could be. We’ve always been about loving and supporting all things local. Thank you to organizations such as LocalShops1.com, Metro Inclusive Health, Mahaffey Theater, The Body Electric Yoga Company, No Clubs, Pacific Counter, Smith & Associates Real Estate, Kahwa Coffee, Sylvia Rusche, Gayoso Plastic Surgery, El Dorado Furniture, Personal Injury Attorney Chris Reynolds, PAINT NAIL BAR St. Pete, The Princess Martha, Red Mesa Cantina, Station House St. Peteand Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority for supporting us all these years. Their continued support is what makes our work possible. Support them.

We do what we do because we believe in this city. We spend our hours covering local events, openings, anniversaries, concerts, parks, and more so that residents and visitors can also discover what makes this city so exquisite.

The growth has only just begun for St. Pete. There are myriad stories left to tell. We celebrated the award, and now it’s time to get back on the grind so that we can continue to earn the title Best Local Blogger. Thank you again. This means the world to be recognized for our efforts.

All of our LOVE,

Andrew, Dexter, Ysa, and Brian.
