Ole’ Tampa Cubans projects opening week

If everything goes according to plan, Plant City will get a new “taste of Tampa” in the first week of October.

Ole’ Tampa Cubans, a Polk County-based restaurant, is gearing up to open its second location in Plant City at 404 N. Alexander St. next month. The restaurant, currently operating at 713 N. Church Ave. in Mulberry, is best-known for its classic Cuban sandwiches and hand-rolled devil crabs and serves potato balls, guava pastries and other Tampa-style Cuban meals.


‘The God Who Speaks’

First Baptist Church of Plant City is inviting the community to take part in a movie night for the film, “The God Who Speaks.”

The event is free to the public and will be held at 5 p.m. Sept. 16 at First Baptist Church, 3309 James L. Redman Parkway. “The God Who Speaks,” traces the Bible’s authority via a variety of interviews with “some of the most respected apologists, scholars and pastors in the evangelical world.” It tackles frequent arguments against biblical reliability and how the Bible was actually formed and “challenges the church to live as if God truly does speak.”

Free childcare will also be available during the event. It was named Best Documentary at the Christian Worldview Film Festival. For more information about the film visit
