Spotlight: Poetry Slam, Florida Art, Local Composers, Print Party and Sanford After Dark


Ever been to a poetry slam and thought “Hey… I can do that!” but really you can’t because let’s be honest you’re only interesting when you drink and no one wants to see a drunk slam poet. For all of you untalented dreamers out there, attend the Poetry Slam Workshop by Ward Rubrecht. Rubrecht will share the insight into crafting personal stories for the stage. The workshop takes place Saturday 2-4 at City Arts Factory in downtown Orlando. A group art show offering an indirect look at living in Florida called Roadsides and Skylines runs this weekend at the Gallery at Avalon Island in downtown Orlando. A concert premier of new works by local composers called “Works with sound” is …

Spotlight: Kres Chophouse


I don’t know why, but Kres Chophouse hardly pops into my mind when I’m asked about recommendations for downtown dining. Maybe it’s because the last couple of times I had dined there I found it to be only so-so. But I recently decided to give it another go, and I’m glad I did. My companion and I started with a salad of Warm Bacon & Spinach, which had crumbled goat cheese, sliced heirloom tomatoes, and a topping of crisply fried onion frizzles (so much better than croutons). For the soup course, we chose the Lobster Bisque, a velvety smooth broth with a sweet tinge of lobster and a hint of sherry. The New York Strip au Poivre couldn’t have been …

Spotlight: Karaoke, Art Exhibits and A Midsummer Night’s Dream


A trap house is a term used to define a crack house, or the surroundings in which a drug dealer or trap star would use to make their profit. What do you think Trap Karaoke look like? Well now’s your chance to see it! Trap karaoke is tonight at 8 at Venue 578 in downtown Orlando. An art show featuring art made from discarded paper products is taking place tonight and tomorrow called “Paper- an Artifact of the Future” at the Gallery of Avalon Island in downtown Orlando. Another art show you should check out is an exhibition from artists Richard Reep and Dina Mack that connects their work to an exploration of ritual, repetition, form and the intimacy of …

Spotlight: Muddy Waters, New Orleans Style Eatery


Muddy Waters, the New Orleans style restaurant that opened recently in Thornton Park, has a second part to its name, a subtitle, as it were. The full name is Muddy Waters, A Two Chefs Restaurant. But not just any two chefs. They’re Bernard Carmouche and Larry Sinibaldi, the two chefs of Two Chefs Seafood Oyster Bar. That’s key information. Because anyone who has been to that North Quarter restaurant, or is familiar the work of the chefs when they cooked separately — Carmouche with Emeril’s and Sinibaldi with Palm Restaurant —knows that the quality of the food at Muddy Waters is bound to be first rate. It is. In New Orleans style, there’s a fresh oyster shucking station at the …

Spotlight: Jazz, Theatre, Grease and Women Politicking


A high energy, sexy, hot, sweaty, dripping, display of jazz and old men playing jazz will be on display during the Crawford Jazz Project’s live performance of their current repertoire and old favorites tonight at 8 at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts in Winter Park. Sexy! An immersive, reality-based theater troupe which explores relationships, philosophy and absurdity through short vignettes will be doing… that tonight at 7 at The District in Mill50. Now I love the District. If you’re vegan, vegetarian or like greeting cards, this place is for you. The owners creative this hidden enclave of healthy foods for people who don’t want cows shot in the brain with metal electric rods so… There’s a showing of the …

Spotlight: Tennessee Truffle


Within just a couple of minutes of my arrival, I learned that the chef at Tennessee Truffle is a culinary genius. It wasn’t because of anything I’d eaten or tasted. It was because my server told me so after I said it was my first time there. I’m not sure Mensa has a special test just for chefs. Or if chef Nat Russell would qualify. But I do know that some very clever choices have been made with the menu. The smartest is the way he’s freshened up his shrimp and grits, which has now officially become the most prevalent and overdone entree on Central Florida menus. But Russell’s Everglades Shrimp & Grits seems new. He uses good-sized shrimp for …
