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

We finally got to check out The Soda Fountain in beautiful College Park! The new shop with the old-timey feel has a lot of menu items including ice cream, milk shakes, sundaes, ice cream floats and craft sodas. Stop in and make it a family affair by sharing “The Zoo” – 5 scoops of ice cream, whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel and peanut butter sauces, chopped peaunts, and lots of cherries.

I tried to post this last week after I visited the new bar in Ivanhoe Village last week; but I got busy with selling homes. The blog takes the back seat sometimes.
The new hot spot in Ivanhoe Village is called The Hammered Lamb. They had a soft opening early last week and then officially opened the doors on Friday. The location is perfect with beautiful views of Lake Ivanhoe from the large outdoor patio bar. Inside there are video games, tons of TVs, plenty of spots to sit and chat or listen to the awesome 90’s set-list. It’s a relaxed neighborhood bar vibe that is just right for the area.
They will be serving light dishes in the future but for now it’s a great place to have a drink and enjoy the Florida weather on the outdoor patio.
Thinking of moving to the area? Search nearby homes for sale in Lake Highland, Colonialtown North , Eola Heights, and College Park or call me to learn more about Downtown Orlando real estate at 407-494-2820.

Sorry I have been out of commission for a while! I took an unexpected trip to the emergency room when my significant other came down with a terrible virus. He is doing well now after a blood transfusion and some meds – thank goodness! It is nice to be back to a normal routine…well as normal as the real estate industry can be.
Recently I wrote an article for our Orlando real estate e-newsletter about 5 ways to Add Real Value. One of the top improvements is a kitchen remodel. A minor kitchen remodel can provide a great return on your investment. As I have said before, kitchens and bathrooms sell homes! So I found this great article about strategies for a smooth kitchen remodel – enjoy!
