The American version of the Cuban sandwich originated in Tampa at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City in the 1920's, but it's been further developed in the Little Havana barrio of Miami since the 1960's when Fidel took over Cuba. Cuban-American history is older in Tampa than Miami and goes back to the 1890's when the great poet and patriot of Cuba, Jose Marti, lived in Tampa and the Cuban/Italian immigrants had a thriving cigar industry in the Ybor City barrio of Tampa. A small amount of cigars are still made there. Tampa has the third largest concentration of Cubans in the U.S. back of Miami and northern new Jersey.

Not the only ones commiting crimes, shall I start with the pedophiles in the area??? evil has no boundaries, so stop pointing fingers.

I think we have a general population of 26% latino and growing, but I mostly find people have integrated and even become sublime in many areas. You can hear some some spanish, in spots here and there, but yet to see my cafe con leche or colada stand outside a Publix serving pastellitos. When I see that- then I know we are celebrating the hispanic culture! hope I get to find the latino envirorment here in Tampabay,,, so far,, quiet and hidden only with in their circles. It is different than Miami, there you become like a brother,,, or a sister, into the community

No place is going to be like Miami. Miami is on one extreme. I don't think that you need to a colada stand outside of Publix in order to feel like you're a part of the Hispanic community. Every place is different and that is what makes this country great. You can celebrate your Hispanic culture with Hispanic, white, black, or Asian people that you meet here. And from what I've seen in general and from my Hispanic friends, none of them are hidden away in some quiet room. Get out and do your everyday activities and you'll start to meet them and other people.

I have been here 7 yrs and talk to lots of latinos, but they NOT as friendly as in Miami- Miami- I moved to an apt complex by the next sat everyone having a BBQ on the grounds and as asking me to join in and to bring something, here they wave HI- and move on. I am not 20, so this is part of the problem, but In Miami las Viejas still dress up and go party and by that dost not always mean clubbing, but to the beach, a BBQ at the park, someone back yard... I could go on & on, and lots of latinos agree with me that it is different here, many keep to themselves, so I made it a POINT to ask - and I work PT in a big home improvement store, and it is what it is. I am now looking to see if T&C is better for friendly neighbors! because Northdale, Clearwater, st Pete,,, no go.
