moving life-hacks

Moving… It’s something no one likes to think about, let alone do.

Whether you’re leaving home for the first time or a life-long renter, moving is never fun… and it never seems to get any easier. First, there’s going through the house and taking inventory of what we need and don’t need – if you’re like me, then the need pile always seems to get bigger. Then there’s the packing and loading, and inevitable house cleaning that follows – and let’s not forget having to schedule a move or organize truck pick-up…

Watch Out for This Scam When Hiring Gainesville Movers

The Truth Behind Moving Employees

Most Gainesville moving companies that have been around for a while provide a great service. Otherwise, they wouldn’t still be in business! However, every summer, the local Gainesville moving industry sees companies pop up, only to fizzle out once the high demand of the busy season winds down around September.

Best Tampa Sports Bars for Super Bowl 50

Watching Super Bowl 50 in Tampa

The NFL’s 50th Super Bowl takes place today at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California where two No.1 draft picks go head-to-head in what is likely to be a one-and-done scenario for the sheriff as he attempts to out-duel Superman in this Bronco-Panther matchup, perhaps Manning’s last. And although driving to California may have to be planned out for a lucky few, watching the game with friends here in Tampa is a close second. The exhilarating excitement that comes with bone-crushing football on a national stage can be expressed with others locally that enjoy the same game. And to no surprise, the Super Bowl gets us excited for a number of reasons: the athleticism of every player, the nail-biting plays, the amazing halftime show that usually features a superstar entertainer, and of course, the best commercials of the year. According to Nielsen, a global performance management company that measures what consumers watch and buy, the 2015 Super Bowl generated 114.4 million total viewers. The game set a new record for the fourth time in five years becoming the most-watched show in U.S. history. The viewers also expressed their sentiments on social media totaling 65 million people posting on Facebook, and 28.4 million tweets posted between kickoff and 30 minutes after the game, according to Twitter. Here at 2 College Brothers we would like for everyone to have a good time watching the game, having a few drinks and enjoy being around others that love the game. For this reason we wanted to share a few sports bars that offer the best viewing and drinking experience in the Tampa Bay area. Here are a few that made the list this year chosen by your Tampa Movers.
