I live in Anna Maria Island, Fl and travel on business to St. Petersburg FL several times a week (40 miles one way). Many times I find myself working late and staying for drinks with friends and business workers. In St Pete (as throughout the State of Florida) the Police / Highway Patrol set up "check points' in which ALL cars are made to pull over and they conduct an inspection to make sure you have your drivers lic, Insurance card and your reg. documents. What they really are doing is looking to hand out DUI situations as they only do these "check points" between the hours of 11PM and 3AM. Long story short, its best to stay put and don't drive and take a chance getting a ticket and going to jail. The Flamingo Hotel now has a 'VIP" program for area residents that will you allow you a great discount. I stayed at the Hotel and it was wonderful. The staff are great, the bartenders all seem to be Models from GQ and very nice.
