PewterReport.com is proud to be partnered with Ford’s Garage, a great auto-themed restaurant expanding across the state of Florida and recently to a new location in Westchase. Ford’s offers an assembly line-style burger order concept, in addition to other great menu items like a great lineup of mac and cheeses, appetizers, grilled chicken, steak and a huge drink menu.
Next Thursday night at the Ford’s Garage location in Westchase (10413 Sheldon Rd, FL 33626) we will be taping the PewterNation Podcast with Tampa Bay starting tackle Demar Dotson who will be our guest, and also available for autographs and pictures from 7-9 p.m.
To make things even better, Ford’s Garage will be serving the “Dotson Big 69 Bison Burger” burger created by Dotson – a bison burger with shrimp served on all the way on a pretzel bun. Ford’s Garage will also offer drink specials as well, and 10 percent of all sales that night will go to WhatTheBuc.net’s annual golf tournament that raises money for pediatric cancer.
There will also be raffle items that fans can win, including autographed pictures to help raise money for the featured charity.
PewterReport.com editor Mark Cook talked about the event.
“A big thanks to the folks at Ford’s Garage for partnering with us this year, but also for hosting the event,” Cook said. “Ford’s Garage is a fun place to eat and is very family friendly. I really love the concept. Ford’s Garage is very community-minded and the company’s willingness to donate proceeds to fight pediatric cancer is proof of that.”

The Pewter Nation Podcast is one of fastest growing Bucs podcasts, and Cook, Scott Reynolds and Trevor Sikkema are excited to bring the podcasts to our readers and Bucs fans on PewterReport.com each week. Dotson will be joining us to talk about career and time in Tampa Bay and what he expects in 2017. Readers can ask their questions on the podcast as well.
“We hope to see a lot of our readers and podcast listeners come out and support Ford’s Garage and also What The Bucs’s endeavors to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer,” Cook said. “We are also thankful for Demar taking time in his offseason to be our guest. Demar has always been the consummate professional and willing to help out any chance he gets. He is a real asset to the Tampa Bay community. Thursday night will be a unique chance for Bucs fans to come out, have a great meal and mingle with a Bucs player and more importantly raise money for a great cause.”
