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!

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!

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!
