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

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!

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!

static.squarespaceDeliciousness 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.
