It's American's turn to feel the heat.

If you’re just seeing this story and you’ve got a flight planned, you may wanna confirm it right now. The Federal Aviation Administration experienced a major outage with their computer network early Wednesday morning and it is expected to totally screw airline travel for the immediate future. The network failure has NOT yet affected flights in or out of our local airports (Tampa, St. Pete, Sarasota, etc.), but the chance definitely exists. The FAA says a system known as NOTAM, which stands for Notice To Air Missions, failed early this morning. The system is used to help airlines and crews plan flights across the United States.
NOTAM posted an update recently, saying the entire system had been reloaded and system checks have been positive, though no one knows how the glitch will impact the rest of the industry later today and moving forward. Emily Nipps, spokesperson for Tampa International Airport, says American Airlines experienced intermittent outages already today, but the problems had not caused any delays or cancellations yet. While it seems as if Tampa may squeak by without major problems, we will not know for sure until the day passes. Nipps went on to say that no flights have been cancelled so far this morning, but they are monitoring th flights very closely.
So, above all else, check your flight information as soon as you can and be prepared to make changes or show up extra early to avoid delays. Also, if you are flying with American Airlines specifically, do your research before heading to the airport. The computer outage may be over, and it may have just begun.

Golden Globes 2023 Winner's List

The 2023 Golden Globe Awards takes place live on NBC and Peacock Tuesday (January 10) night at 8  p.m. ET. It is one of the few awards ceremonies to recognize both motion picture and television achievements. As we’ve previously reported, NBC canceled the 2022 telecast amid an ethics, finance and diversity scandal involving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that bestows the awards. Citing extensive HFPA reforms in September, NBC agreed to return the ceremony to its air for an 80th installment — under a one-year trial, the New York Times reports.

“We recognize the HFPA’s commitment to ongoing change and look forward to welcoming back the Golden Globes to NBC for its landmark 80th Anniversary in January 2023,” said Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. Helen Hoehne, President of the HFPA added, “The HFPA remains committed to important changes and supporting programs that prioritize diversity, inclusion, and transparency.”

The HFPA previously announced the introduction of 103 new voters to its ranks, marking the first time international-based voters have been added to the voting pool. This diverse voting body is now represented by 62 different countries around the world. Combined with the current HFPA membership, the total Golden Globe Awards voting body is now 52% female, 51.5% racially and ethnically diverse, with 19.5% Latinx, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern.

Eddie Murphy has been confirmed to receive one of the night’s highest honors, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, given as a way to honor “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” per the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The selection is made by the HFPA’s board of directors. Murphy, 61, is a six-time Golden Globe nominee, winning one trophy in 2007 for his critically acclaimed role in Dreamgirls. He was nomimated for 48 Hrs., Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, The Nutty Professor and Dolemite Is My Name. Presenters include Jenna Ortega, Jennifer Hudson, Claire Danes, Cole Hauser, Harvey Guillén, Henry Golding, Hilary Swank, Glen Powell, Jay Ellis, Jennifer Coolidge, Letitia Wright, Mo Brings Plenty, Regina Hall, Salma Hayek Pinault, Billy Porter, Niecy Nash-Betts, Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tracy Morgan, Ana De Armas, Ana Gasteyer, Colman Domingo, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Natasha Lyonne and Nicole Byer.

Screw It, Let’s Drink

9 Tasty Mocktails In The Tampa Bay Area And Where To Find Them

We like to party here in Tampa Bay, but some people have sworn off the hootch for Dry January or trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Conveniently, the mocktail trend has been steadily growing in the area. Whether you’re practicing Dry January or have sworn off alcohol for good, multiple Tampa area bars are catering to everyone and including alcohol-free cocktails in their menu. We went to Yelp to see where the best Mocktails are in the Tampa Bay area and came up with a solid list that included a couple of our favorites that didn’t make Yelp’s list.

Theses drinks are tasty for anyone to order! Maybe you want to join in for an Instagram shot. Or let your kid feel like an adult with a “sophisticated” but fun beverage. One thing to look out for when ordering mocktails is the ingredient “Seedlip.” According to the Tampa Bay Times, Seedlip is known to be “the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit.”  You’ll find it as the base ingredient for a lot of these mocktails. A lot of other local restaurants will disguise their drinks on their menu as “Zero-proof” or “spirit free.”

Note that some of these places might change their menu depending on the season. Be sure to check out their website for more info!

Here are 9 tasty mocktails to try in the Tampa Bay Area

  • The Sophia At Counter Culture

    One of the trendiest places in Tampa offers two tasty mocktails on their menu! The Sophia features Seedlip spice, blueberry-rosemerry shrub, lemon, and ginger beer!

  • Emerald at Velvet Gypsy

    Velvet Gyspy is a great little dive bar located in Seminole Heights. Their mocktails are named after gems/crystals! Try the Emerald, made with jalapeno, pineapple and ginger!

    Spook Easy Lounge located in Ybor is the best place to go for non-alcoholic beverages because well, that’s what they dedicate their menu to!

Try the La Llorona, A mango-pineapple-chipotle, drowned in bubbles that will haunt your spicy dreams.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
