Its not your grandparents St. Pete on a crawl with Pete Gallagher. We have an acoustic music scene that surpasses Austin, says the folk show host on community radio station WMNF 88.5 FM. Downtown is really cool. Park your car and walk to blocks of eclectic restaurants and bars. A favorite hangout: The Flamingo Bar on 9th Avenue North, where Jack Kerouac had his last drink. The best sushi in town is right next door at Hooks. (www.hookssushi.com). Beachside: Treasure Island, especially the southern tip, where the bars cozy up to the water, and the Sloppy Pelican on St. Pete Beach (www.sloppypelican.com). It has a spectacular view of the gulf and great Florida performers. For kids: Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is the countrys largest wild bird hospital, and its free. (www.seabirdsanctuary.com). Grouper sandwich? Billys Stone Crab, Seafood & Steak in Tierra Verde. Lumpy homemade mashed potatoes and fish caught fresh every day (www.billysstonecrab.com).
