A Closer Look: Felicitous Coffee & Tea

A Closer Look: Felicitous Coffee & Tea

A closer look into one of Tampa's favorite local coffeeshops.

“We make you happy”

Voted as one of Tampa's 5 Best Coffee Shops by The Culture Trip, Felicitous is known as one of Tampa's, and especially USF's, favorite local dog-friendly coffeehouse.

With optional outdoor seating and free WiFi, Felicitous's special location in a renovated home adds to its eclectic Boho vibes accentuated by funky and retro decor.

Their diverse menu (mostly bought from local, independently owned vendors) consists of sorts of coffees, espressos, teas, frappes, milk & chocolate & chai, and other specialty options like their Mississippi Mud which consists of the delicious mix of hot chocolate, espresso, marshmallows, whip, and chocolate drizzle. Whether you're in the mood for something conventional to something with a little fruity taste, Felicitous is able to cater to your needs. Luckily the array also has all different levels of caffeine types based on the customer's wants or needs. They also have a nice variety of sandwiches, pressed panini, and other gluten free vegan options as well. There's also the convenience of being able to walk up and order from their outdoor window from the patio!

When they're not hosting inspiring open mic nights on the patio (held the last Wednesday of every month), their laid-back atmosphere adapts in which, “The music switches from EDM to Motown with little rhyme or reason, unless someone is playing a guitar in the corner or outside on the huge patio that serves as the place to chat with friends or cram for finals,” as the Tampa Tribune raves. Felicitous' community-conscious vibes allows a safe space for all kinds of people and its environment

Felicitous' owner also has the interesting background story of formerly having been a USF student! Noticing the lack of unique, non-corporate local, off-campus study spots reminiscent of the ones she visited in cities like Vermont and Chicago, she decided to open Felicitous after graduating and being an architect for awhile.

Welcoming all artists, writers, students, poets, musicians, activists, and community patrons, Felicitous Coffee & Tea is definitely a one-of-a-kind local gem that shouldn't be overlooked!

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
