Spotlight: Seven Things to do in your House


Here are 7 things to do in your house inspired by the website lifelovebeauty.com. Write your holiday cards. You need a pen, those cards you bought December 26th last year for 80% off and a list of people who like you. Let’s be honest, if the list is long you’re probably fake and if it’s short you’re most likely horrible. Exchange full-body massages with your significant other… or pets. Play hide and go seek inside. Depending on the layout of your house, it may be too easy to find your opponents, so you might want to make up new rules. Like not hiding or seeking. Rearrange your house. Take two chairs away from the dining room table and see how …

Florida’s opioid crisis is about to get deadlier. Orange County officials plan to fight back


In 2012, Stephanie Muzzy was driving around Orlando looking for the worst neighborhood she could find in search of prescription pills. She didn’t find pills, but the batch of heroin she tried from Lake Downey trailer park plummeted her into the depths of addiction and landed her in the Orange County jail. As the months turned into years, Muzzy was in and out of rehabs in Florida and Nevada, gaining and losing jobs, apartments, cars, cats and boyfriends along the way. Overdose after overdose, Muzzy was able to recover and is currently now on her way to getting better – but the same can’t be said for more than 2,664 Floridians who overdosed on opioids and never woke up during …

Spotlight: God Is a Scottish Drag Queen, The Drowsy Chaperone, Craft Fair and Magical Dining Month


Orlando’s favorite out of town fringe show “God Is a Scottish Drag Queen” is back in Orlando and I still haven’t seen it. Well I’ve been busy with feeding the homeless and planting trees along inner city streets and adopting all the stray kittens so…  The show features a man in a dress. Thanks RuPaul! “God Is a Scottish Drag Queen” plays this evening at 7 and Saturday at 2 and 7 at The Venue in Ivanhoe Village. An ambiguously gay man in an ill-fitting sweater leads the audience through the cast album of his favorite lost Broadway musical (that never was). While he plays the record and talks the audience through the story, the musical comes to life in …

Spotlight: Magical Dining Month Returns


It’s here! Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month, which somehow defies all principles of the modern Gregorian calendar by running more than five weeks, runs through Oct. 1. More than 100 restaurants are participating this year, up from 65 in 2016, including for the first time some well-known Disney restaurants. So even with 38 days, you’re not going to be able to visit them all. (No. NO. Stop arguing, you just can’t do it.) Also up this year is the cost, $35, two bucks more than 2016, and they’re not even paying Emeril Lagasse an endorsement fee this year. So you’re going to have to do some research to narrow your decision. Here’s how I go about choosing which Magical Dining …

Group Demands Marco Rubio Stop Tweeting his Daily Bible Verses


Florida Senator Marco Rubio has a penchant for waking up early and tweeting a daily Bible verse to the 3 million followers of his Twitter account. But an organization devoted to the separation of church and state has asked him to stop, claiming that he’s breaking the law. Last week, the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent the request in a letter to Rubio’s Washington D.C. office. They cited the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in June that tweets from President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account are, in fact, official statements. “We have no issue with people reading and discussing the Bible,” says Andrew Seidel, the foundation’s director of strategic response. “But it is not for the government in our …

Spotlight: LemonShark Poke


Sometimes when a food fad starts trending, we scratch our heads in befuddlement of what all the fuss is about. (I’m looking at you, cupcakes.) But occasionally, you’ll happen upon someone who is doing the current food a la mode in such a way as to produce an aha moment, where you say, “OK, now I get it.” If you’ve been wondering about the surge in restaurants offering Hawaiian raw fish bowls, your eureka! is waiting for you at LemonShark Poke on Restaurant Row. For those still unfamiliar with it, poke is similar to Japanese chirashi, which features raw fish served over rice. But whereas the fish in chirashi is basically the same as sashimi — that is, sliced in …

A Federal Appeals Court Dealt a Blow to the Sabal Trail Pipeline


A federal appeals court dealt a blow to the Sabal Trail pipeline this week after it ruled in a 2-1 decision that regulators did not adequately consider the environmental impact. Two months ago, the 515-mile Sabal Trail pipeline started pumping natural gas to plants owned by Florida Power & Light and Duke Energy Florida. The $3.2 billion project snakes through Alabama, Georgia and down to Central Florida. The pipeline tunnels under forests, wetlands, ranches, rivers and several pieces of private property to sit above the Floridan aquifer, which is the primary drinking source for millions who live in the state. Environmental advocates have long said the pipeline could potentially jeopardize the source of clean water for millions and threaten Florida’s …
