IMG_04002015 is here and just like that the holiday season is coming to a close. For me the first weekend after the New Year is always a slow one, I need it to recover from the holiday rush, the festivities and the over consumption of food and beverage. It’s now time for all of us to focus on the road ahead,  it’s time to take down your décor, and it’s time to start your workout regime (because we all know that was your 2015 resolution).  So let’s take this weekend off,  focus on ourselves, reel it in and relax a little!  Who’s with me?

But, if relaxing isn’t really your thing there is still plenty to do around town.  If you haven’t had your fill of food and beverage why don’t you head over to Oblivion Taproom for the Terrapin Wake ‘n’ Bake Off, it is a homemade baked goods competition that must include Terrapin beer.  All proceeds of the $20 entry will go to St. Jude’s Pediatric Cancer Research.  Or get your yoga on followed by a little beer tasting with Yoga in the Pub,  a $15 class led by Firefly Yoga Company hosted in Rogue Pub, 1 hour yoga session followed with a beer tasting.  Are you seeing a theme here?  Lots of eating and drinking…but we did throw in some yoga… ya know…for your 2015 resolution and all.

If you’re looking for something more low key you could always head down to the Downtown Orlando or Winter Park Farmer’s Markets, both are always an ideal way to spend the day.

Terrapin Wake ‘n’ Bake Off – 1/3 @ 4pm

Yoga in the Pub – 1/3 @ 9:30am

Downtown Orlando Farmer’s Market – 1/4 @ 10am

Winter Park Farmer’s Market – 1/3 @ 7am

There are plenty of great ways to get active and/or enjoy the outdoors in the Central Florida area.  Get out and have some fun this weekend!  There are plenty of local farmer’s markets in Orlando to check out.

In full disclosure, for those adverse to cold weather, it’s supposed to be pretty chilly on Sunday but a nice jacket and you’ll be just fine.

Enjoy your weekend!
