Spotlight: Grandma Party, Holiday Dinner for the Animals, and The Rein-Dog Run


This year has seen an unprecedented amount of holiday shopping events in Orlando. I’ve been paying attention to this town since 2009 when I started my blog and never, and I mean never have I seen so many pop up this and market that and, well, I love them all. And this one I love the most. Probably because it’s one of the first ones I attended years ago and because it’s weird. Grandma Party is a shopping event with kick and pizazz. It’s not upscale spider plants in beaded macramé hangers class-a-frass, it’s not redneck mee-maw oven mitt Lularoe hot garbage, it’s just, how do you say … Grandma Party. Go see it Sunday starting at 10 at Stardust …

A performer from Scotland named Mike Delamont flies into Orlando every few months and performs his show, God is a Scottish Drag Queen.

Spotlight: Fusion Fest, Orlando Philharmonic, and Disney Springs


When an event has a catch phrase like “It’s Diverstastic!” you know it’s going to be a hit. And when an event has the combined muscle, finances and influence of and from the Orange County Government, the City of Orlando, the Downtown Development Board, and the Downtown Arts District behind it, you know it’s going to be a hit that keeps on hitting us year after year. Like Fiesta in the Park. FusionFest is a free two-day celebration in Downtown Orlando that features short films, an international food court, a marketplace, music and dance stages, choirs, fashion shows, a parade, dance party and prizes…. that represent the diversity of our community.

Spotlight: Holiday Block Party, Broadway Christmas, and Orlando Flea


I like block parties but have you ever been to a block party that takes up block, after block after block then you turn the corner and there’s more blocks and you’re like this is a block party?

The annual Jingle Eve block party put on by Ivanhoe Village Main Street district will include performances, a wine walk, vendors, fireworks and Santa. Jingle Eve is Saturday 5 to 10 in Ivanhoe Village. Christmas and Broadway. Sounds like heaven to me unless it’s a Broadway musical post 1965 and Christmas songs not sung by Bing Crosby.

Spotlight: Pecha Kucha and Arcade & Pinball Convention


I like hearing smart people talk. Sitting in comfy chairs, soaking in their knowledge and knowing that everyone around me is there for the same reason. This is why I love PechaKucha Night. PechaKucha Night is an entertainment event held several times a year that rests on a simple idea: a presenter is allowed to show 20 images in total, with each image remaining on the screen for 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Speakers present their PechaKuchas on any subject, from the personal to the public. PechaKucha Night has two performances tonight: once at 6 and again at 9 at 455 S. Magnolia Avenue in downtown Orlando. …
