TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tenants of one of Tampa's tallest skyscrapers are getting new advice from the landlord for the week of the Republican National Convention: stay home if you can.
That's the recommendation for employees in the 31-story Rivergate Tower, popularly known as the Beer Can Building because of its perfectly cylindrical shape.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/NyCe6f) reports that the skyscraper isn't the only building that's affected by the convention. Hillsborough County officials plan to close the Fred B. Karl County Center - also in downtown Tampa - for two weeks from Aug. 20 until after Labor Day. County services will be offered at satellite offices during the convention.
The Republican National Convention will be held Aug. 27-30 in downtown Tampa.
