Tony surveys the duck feet.

One thing you won't get by reading my story today about The Tampa Underbelly Tour, Part Deux: giant babies.

Yes, that's right. Humongus offspring. Fake, of course.

After our meal at La Pequena Colombia, we walked a few doors down in the strip mall where it was located so we could stop in a store called El Encanto. The thing that got our attention was the line on the sign that read: House of Pinatas.

When we saw "House of the Pinatas" a few doors down, we had to stop in.

This was one of the oddest places I've ever been in. It wasn't just that you had to limbo through the store underneath the pinatas. It was, well, the giant baby dolls.

Paging Stephen King... Mr. Stephen King

That's just wrong. I'm sorry.

Anyway, if you want to get a sense of what it's like to spend six hours eating yourself stupid at some of the tastiest spots in Tampa, check out the videos we shot:
