Lame Luau: Orlando Our Way, Part 4

Published by Miss Prissy on October 19th, 2011 - in Out & About
So as I said in my first vacation post, the reason we came to Orlando was to help celebrate my friend Lisa’s 50th birthday. 

 

The way in which she wanted to celebrate was at a Sea World luau.

 

Now granted, because we live in a tourist destination, we see this sort of thing differently than many.

Garbo’s Grill

Published by Miss Prissy on October 18th, 2011 - in Restaurant Reviews

Last month, new people assumed ownership of Garbo’s Grill at 603 Greene Street (across the street from The Sports Page).  We never made it there when Heidi Garbo owned it, so we have no comparison on that aspect.   After hearing rave reviews, many from trusted foodie friends, we knew we had to try.  Columbus Day Monday would be that day.

The Ravenous Pig and Aroma Italian Cafe & Wine Bar: Orlando Our Way, Pt 3

Published by Miss Prissy on October 17th, 2011 - in Out & About
So finally, we got here and in the most round-about way!  As you know, there was a mega-wait on Saturday night.  Considering that, we decided we’d make a reservation for later in the week. 

 

Our friends wanted to join us so I called first thing Wednesday morning to make a reservation that evening.  Well, the only thing available for a group of 7 was at 5:45.

 

The problem with that (aside from it being WAY too early to eat) was that our friends decided to go to Siesta Key for the day and they wouldn’t be back by then.

Penn’s Weekend Picks: October 13

Published by Miss Prissy on October 13th, 2011 - in Out & About
Hello, everyone!  Since I wasn’t around last week, I get to be solo this week.  I have to say though, if Kyla felt ri-gosh-damn-diculous in this lei, think of how I feel!  I’m a manly man!!! 

 

You wouldn’t know it, though.  Grrrrrrr.  Like it isn’t bad enough that I had surgery, now there’s this picture floating around the internet of me in a lei.  Again…grrrrrrr.

 

Anyway, many people think just because Goombay isn’t here yet that there is nothing to do on this island!  WRONG!!!!

 

There are parties and music and pumpkins!  Even though Mom calls Daddy “punkin”, I’m not talking about him.  I’m talking about REAL pumpkins…read on!

Bobalu’s Downtown: Big Coppitt’s Younger Brother

Published by Miss Prissy on October 11th, 2011 - in Restaurant Reviews
Some of you may not know that Bobalu’s downtown is not an original. 

 

Often, people fly in to Key West Int’l so they may never drive by Bobalu’s Southern Cafe on US-1 at MM10.

 

 

However, the original on Big Coppitt Key has been a mainstay for decades.
