Kick Back with Goody Goody Burgers at Hyde Park Village: A Modern Oasis in Tampa
If you are looking for a casual place to eat in Tampa, Fla., with delicious food and an old-school feel, we have what you’re looking for.
Just 10 minutes from downtown, fuel up while preparing for a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game or before visiting Amalie Arena, Straz Center or the Florida Aquarium.
A different guitar from owner Richard Gonzmart’s private collection will be displayed monthly in the Goody Goody dining room. His love of guitars started during his adolescence when he played in a rock ’n’ roll band and it received another push when he was living in Spain as a 20-year-old and taking flamenco guitar classes.
In 1979, he opened the Café nightclub at the Ybor Columbia booking pianist Dick Rivers and occasionally sitting in himself.
Gonzmart has collected guitars all of his life and keeps many of his favorites in his office, including a double-neck electric guitar autographed by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, several Fender Telecasters autographed by Prince, a six-string acoustic signed by all the members of the Beach Boys and a Gibson Les Paul signed by Les Paul himself.
Through a custom playlist of hits through many decades, featuring music from Carl Perkins to The Eagles to Rob Thomas and beyond, Goody Goody™ taps musical memories as part of our experience marketing. And we’ll increase the frequency of songs by the featured artist that month, as represented by the guitar display.
Here are some of our favorite guitar residents:
A prize from owner Richard Gonzmart’s collection: A Sawtooth signed by each member of Traveling Wilburys — George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty.
You’ll also hear more of the supergroup’s songs playing in Goody Goody’s dining room while the guitar is displayed.
Not to worry. We’ll handle it with care.
In honor of Rolling Stones singer and front man Mick Jagger buying a mansion in Lakewood Ranch, we subbed in a new guitar at Goody Goody.
Part of owner Richard Gonzmart’s private collection, the Fender Squier Bullet Strat is autographed by Jagger, Richards and the rest of the lads.
Jagger bought the 8,400 square foot home for $1.9 million in October, and the title is in the name of his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, whose parents live in the area. The community is about 45 minutes south of Tampa, just northeast of Sarasota.
We also added a few more Stones’ songs to our custom music playlist at the restaurant.
