Who Says There’s Nothing to Do in Orlando?


Smokey bars, raspy voices and the taste of liquor on your lips are all components of the jazz music era.  Though the start of jazz is debatable, some say in the late 1800’s and others say in in the 1910’s, it will always be synonymous with rebellion and youth thanks to The Roaring Twenties.  Whenever and whoever first started playing jazz definitely got it right, it has carried through the ages and stood the test of time.  You hear it’s influence in modern music, from rock to hip hop to folk.  Everyone, at one point or another, has enjoyed jazz music whether they know it or not.

One of the best ways to listen to jazz music is live, you can feel the energy flowing through the crowd, you can’t help but tap your fingers along with the beat.  And that is why College Park Jazzfest is, year after year, one of the most anticipated events in the downtown area.  Last year there were over 10,000 people in attendance, and this year even more are expected!  3 stages, local restaurants,  retail and food vendors will line Edgewater Drive on October 25th from 6-11pm.  Admission is a minimum $5 donation, and a portion of your donation helps support teams, schools and non profit organizations within College Park!

Tickets are available upon arrival or in advance at select College Park establishments:

The Beauty Spot

Gallery On The Edge

The Soda Fountain

Infusion Tea

Old Florida!

Next weekend is for the dogs!

Each year Lambs Eat Ivy Salon hosts Shampooch, a dog washing fundraiser to help raise money for a local animal shelter or rescue. There have been a total of 10 rescues helped and over $50,000 raised, that’s pretty impressive! This year the chosen rescue is Florida Little Dog Rescue, a rescue whose focus is on the little guys!

Now, this isn’t just a dog wash, it’s a huge event with so much to do! There will be a Block and Bark Party, professional pet portraits, food trucks, music, raffle prizes (an iPad!!) and so much more!  It is such a fun event and you by no means have to have a dog to enjoy the fun.  But if you don’t have a dog, we suggest you walk on down to Lake Eola and adopt one from Barktoberfest where there will be more than 50 rescue partners promoting adoption!

 

Shampooch

Lambs Eat Ivy Salon  – 804 E Washington St

From 9am – 4pm

 

Barktoberfest

Lake Eola, Southeast Grassy Area – 195 N Rosalind

From 10am – 4pm

TONIGHT IS OPENING NIGHT!

Don’t go alone, don’t make a sound, pretend you’re a stone.

There are still a few open seats so hurry and get your tickets NOW!  And don’t worry, if we do sell out, and I’m sure we will, you can just come to the show another night!

And just in case you haven’t heard about it…

Local artists Patrick Fatica and Blue Star have once again put their creative minds together to bring you yet another experiment in storytelling titled  Monster.  After the success of their past collaborations, ‘Hammers and Lambs’ and ‘Shadows of the Waifs’ they decided to bring something a little different to the table.  Using paper cutouts Fatica created a stop motion film about 5 little girls that get lost in the forest and fall victim to their vices, that film was the inspiration behind Star’s stage performance.  Dark and beautiful is something these two always seem to get just right!

If you are not familiar with these two locals be sure to visit one of this month’s shows and support the exciting art that is found surrounding Downtown Orlando in the Mills50 and Ivanhoe Village Main Street districts. This is definitely a show you do not want to miss and a perfect start to the Halloween season!

Be sure to visit the interactive website for some sneak peeks and behind the scenes footage!

The Opening show is TONIGHT September 5th at The Venue in Ivanhoe Village.

Tickets are on sale now: $15 advanced or $18 at the door. Call The Venue at 407-412-6895 for tickets.
