I'm coming into town for the Outback Bowl. Any advice on where to stay/eat/tailgate? I'd love to stay somewhere within walking distance of the stadium, and hopefully near some downtown nightlife. Any suggestions?

The stadium is about 4 miles west of downtown Tampa near the Westshore District, places within walking distance will not offer much in the way of nightlife, except for Rennaisance International Plaza(about a mile from the stadium), but downtown/Channelside, Hyde Park and Ybor City(where most of the nightlife activities will be held for the Outback Bowl), is less than a 10 min cab ride from the stadium area. It may be better to stay downtown or Ybor City hotels, since the game is just for the one day.
Tailgating is all throughout the grassy parking areas around the stadium, and along Himes Avenue.

I'd find a place by the International Mall, and probably find a cab to the game.
