All storm-watching aside, if you’re a non-conservative heading to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, you may feel a bit intimidated. All that red meat and cheesy tea-party pageantry in one place! What bars are safe? Which crowds are blue?

Fear not: Nonprofit Progress Florida has assembled an online “Progressive Guide to the RNC.” From the “Patients Over Politics” bus-tour kickoff to a plug for Cafe Hey, “Tampa’s official oasis of chill,” the site offers progressives a host of activities and safe spaces during Romneypalooza. Most important: The sidebar lists a bunch of Florida-based journos and blogs that are worth including in your must-reads, for the RNC and beyond.

“Here is the definitive guide for progressives who want to stand up for the middle class, oppose the Republican Party’s extremist agenda, and get the unscripted, behind the scenes play-by-play,” PF writes. If you’d like to check out the guide, do so here.
