Back to LovingStPete after a Crazy Month!

First, after a crazy month of moving and more, we’re back! Fill in the blank in the comments: “To me, the moving process is [zyz]”. 😓 I’ll go with “exhausting”. Busy month with home closing, moving out/in, Shore Acres 🌀 activities, supporting RE clients, and family activities. Plus, the ol’ 6-8 hours a week during 🍂🏈 dedicated to our Auburn non-profit. #PinellasStudents
With the move behind us, I’m excited to continue posting about our incredible area! My list of fun local activities and places to write-up has been taunting me…

Onto J&K Seafood in Largo

Alright, you know spots like J&K Seafood are right up my alley for a LovingStPete write-up. Locally owned, great reviews, off the beaten path for some, a hard working owner, and in this case, incredible seafood!
Check out the deliciously huge fish tacos in pic #2 that cost me $7.99. I can barely buy my son a fast food meal for that price these days! And on Wednesday the tacos are only $2.99 each. And on Tuesdays the Tilapia sandwich is only $5.

Started as Trappman’s, now J&K Seafood

J&K lived up to the hype from locals. I highly recommend you swing by for great seafood and to support the local business owner! You’ll see a LovingStPete sticker by their entrance. Keep your eyes open around town, you’ll see more stickers at places we love!
The foundation for J&K was formed 50+ years ago by a local fisherman named Bill Trappman. The shack as it stands today was built in 2006 by Bill’s son.
“A small shack with a big heart – and of course delicious seafood!

Current Owner Dave

While Colt and I were onsite, we met the current owner, Dave. Nice guy and was working hard with the rest of his team, which is a common theme among the highest rated businesses we visit.
I’m a St Pete Area Realtor with over 36K people following my LovingStPete Guide on Social Media! You’ll receive up to $10K at closing when you use my LovingStPete Team to buy or sell a property!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
