“PewterReport.com is excited to continue our partnership with Hard Rock Cafe Tampa and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” said PewterReport.com publisher Scott Reynolds. “We had a blast hosting Pewter Watch Parties at Hard Rock Cafe last year where Tampa Bay fans could watch their favorite team on a multitude of TVs, including a huge, 18-foot projection screen that brings you close to all the football action. The turnout was great last year and we’re looking forward to doing it again this season.”
