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!

Finally!  Pig Floyd’s  is opening its doors for business, tomorrow, September 11th at 4pm.  If you live in, frequent or even just drive through the Mills50 district I’m sure you noticed a while back that the old Atilla’s restaurant was being gutted.  That alone caused excitement for us, we love watching the Mills50 district grow and started wondering what would pop up there.  Would it be a new unique storefront, a craft beer bar, a locally owned restaurant…?  Our question was soon answered, a locally owned bbq restaurant, something Mills50 did not have!

Pig Floyd’s describes themselves as ‘Introducing a fresh interpretation of the barbecue experience.  Integrating cultural influences with traditional fire, smoke and pit methods to craft vibrant, delicious fare.’    There is something for everyone on their menu, from brisket and ribs to tofu and salads. And let’s not forget their sauces, from traditional sweet and hot to the more exotic Tikka Masala. From what we’ve heard Pig Floyd’s will not disappoint and we cannot wait to see that for ourselves!

There will definitely be a line forming before 4pm so get out there early and grab yourself some deliciousness from Mills50 District’s only bbq joint, Pig Floyd’s!

The new Mills Brewpub (used to be Bananas) had a sneak peek event Monday night and we were in attendance to see what it was all about! The interior has been hugely upgraded and has a modern industrial feel. The food menu is nice with some of the typical pub fare plus some entree options. The drink menu includes some select draft beers, many bottles, a red and white wine list as well as cocktails.

All in all Mills Brewpub seems like it’s going to be a pretty fun after work spot to eat and drink! They open up to the public next week, be sure to stop in.
