Getting fit is always more fun when you have a friend to do it with! Since July Track Shack has been hosting a free mid-week running session to promote exercise and community, tonight is the last night of the season to join them. The course starts on Oregon St. and then spills into the Orlando Urban Trail, as well as parts of Track Shack’s Celebration of Running course, it is roughly a three mile run and all levels are welcome. Water and Gatorade will be available pre and post run, if that doesn’t quench your thirst be sure to head on over to Hawker’s for an extended happy hour just for the runners!
Running starts at 6pm tonight, arrive a few minutes early to sign in, get some water and sign up for any giveaways. Let’s get fit, make a few new friends and explore the Mills 50 district!

All Aboard!!! It’s a pub crawl of sorts..but via the Sunrail! Yep, the Orlando Conductor Crawl started back a few months ago and is quickly gaining popularity. It’s surely more sophisticated than your average pub crawl and it utilizes the use of our new Sunrail. If you haven’t checked out the Sunrail yet, this is your perfect opportunity! The event is completely organized, with conductor crawl ambassadors facilitating the night and keeping everyone on track for boarding times.
The event kicks off at Ceviche on Church St at 6pm. After some fun there, everyone will board the Sunrail which will head to the Winter Park area, and eventually back Downtown. The event is free but the roundtrip Sunrail ticket costs $3.75 which you will want to purchase before getting to Ceviche.
Get out there, mingle and support the Sunrail!

Deliciousness alert! There’s a new business in Thornton Park serving up all kinds of crepes. Never had a crepe? You are truly missing out. Think of a pancake, but lighter and filled with all kinds of treats. Qarma Crepes has a philosophy of “Eat well. Do good.” They believe in making great, quality food while also giving back to the community. Three cents of every dollar made goes to three new charities every month.
As far as the menu is concerned, this place hasn’t missed a beat. They don’t just have sweet crepes, they also have savory ones that include things like ham, gouda and pickles! See the full menu here, it’s drool-worthy.
