Battle of the Lou’s

It is only 1.8 miles down Mills Ave and across E. Robinson St, a total of 8 minutes without too much traffic, that separates Whiskey Lou’s Lounge (101 N Bumby Ave) and Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall (1016 N Mills Ave). While both have been described by their regular patrons as dive bars, do not let the Lou-similarities fool you. These two are as different within that genre of bar as different can be.

Whiskey Lou’s resides within the Milk District and has been more often compared to Wally’s of the Mills 50 area than Uncle Lou’s, which sits right across the street. Whiskey’s is a bar for “regulars.” It’s rumored they serve incredibly strong drinks for good prices, beer on tap and in the bottle, and even have wine. This spot is nothing too fancy though, and that is just the way they like it.

Their counterpart, in nomenclature only it seems, Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, serves only beer by the bottle or can. Uncle Lou’s is primarily an entertainment hall as its name states, a venue for live music which is usually hard rock, punk, or metal. Here, it takes the lead over Whiskey’s, which offers only a jukebox.

But if you’re looking for a drink in a chill spot for lunch, dinner, or even after hours, then Whiskey Lou’s is your bar. They open at 9am and close after 2am. On any given day you can stop in to see regular barfly types playing pool and enjoying a cigarette, indoors.

On the other hand, Uncle Lou’s is anything but quiet. This weekend it hosts the aptly named Florida Is Loud Fest and will host concerts every three days following throughout the end of the year.

What these two bars do have in common is a deep appreciation by those who frequent their establishments and a cash only policy. So in the end, a lover of cheap drinks and live music will never have to choose sides.

Only in Orlando:Christmas Edition

Florida is a widely misunderstood state of the union; it is certainly distinct and unique amongst its neighboring states. Our weather is better, our mixture of cultures is the American melting pot realized, and our various residents are… let’s just repeat misunderstood.

The product of such a mezcla is that Florida, Orlando in particular, offers something for everyone. And the holiday holiday season is no exception. The upcoming weekend features events ranging from a metal music festival, a holiday-themed burlesque show, and a costumed bar crawl.

img_0036Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall (1016 N Mills Ave) will host the Florida Is Loud Fest starting December 17th at 10pm and run through the 19th, ending at 4am. The coordinators describe the music festival as “a snapshot of what this place can produce in its underground, happening in a city known primarily for theme parks and urban sprawl, with a lineup of Florida artists representing what the state’s punk/hardcore/metal/whatever community is currently offering.”

Thirty groups will perform throughout the 30 hour-festival, including Yautja, Knife Hits, and Holly Hunt. The artists are all Florida natives, converts, or bands who frequently play in the area alongside their Florida counterparts.

Celebrating the season a little differently, yet likely no quieter in volume, are the participants in this year’s Santa Stumble. Starting at Ember (42 W Central Blvd), holiday revelers will pick up their “Stumble Tag” and make their way through 4 of downtown Orlando’s bars. The Orlando Sport and Social Club encourages potential stumblers to get into costume (perhaps Saint Nick, Mrs. Claus, or Rudolph?) to take full advantage of the event.

img_0030But if you’re looking forward to people getting out of costume, then the VarieTEASE Winter Blue Burlesque Show at The Venue (511 Virginia Dr) will put you in the spirit of the season. General tickets are $20 but if you have a chair and blanket on hand, bring them, enjoy some elbow room, and pay $15. Cocktails at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm.

That’s Orlando for you, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

A Very Alternative X-mas

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, tiny tots with their eyes all aglow… Let’s face it. Not everyone’s wintry season is a lyric from “The Christmas Song.” While it may be a “White Christmas” for some, this year others are getting the “Black Christmas” they asked Santa for.

The Shallow Grave Haunted House (701 42nd St NW, Winter Haven, FL) is hanging something by the fire, and it is sure to be bloody. The production promises “…that Santa has picked the wrong chimney, and his last stop may just be that…HIS LAST STOP forever.”

5094370d-ed63-4238-a33d-faebadff577e-2210-0000027f8106bc98_tmp

For three days through December 17th, visitors can experience all of the horror they hoped the holiday season normally had. The haunted house is rated one of the nation’s best and will feature everything from “demented [Christmas] elves to possessed snowmen.”

 

As part of the continuing alternative Christmas festivities, live and loud music fans will want to check out Goatwhore at The Haven (6700 Aloma Ave). Goatwhore is an American metal band nearing their twentieth year together and will perform songs from their newest album Constricting Rage of the Merciless. Metalheads can also see Sons of Ragnar, Withering Earth, and I Owe Nothing at Haven Lounge this Thursday, December 17th, 7pm.

Still disillusioned, disinterested, and distant from the general spirit of Christmas? The Geek Easy (114 S. Semoran Blvd. Suite 6), a speakeasy lounge and venue chock full of nerdy memorabilia, will host its weekly Mint Condition event Thursday. In addition to craft beer and reasonably-priced bar food (try the grilled 4-cheese sandwich, seriously), expect chillstep tunes spun by Sputnik Yuri. The Geek Easy has been voted “Best Comic Shop” nine years running, so pick up an issue while you’re there in support of a truly unique lounge experience.

And a very alternative Christmas to all.

The Foodies’ Date Night

http://www.santiagosbodega.com/gallery.php?restaurant=2

It’s that time of year where you are expected to do something special for your significant other, but all of the holiday shopping has left your wallet a little on the slim side. Planning a date night under such conditions can be stressful and end up sapping all of the romance from an otherwise great night. You don’t want to have to check your bank app every time the waiter asks if you’d like another glass.

Fortunately there are options for the romantic looking to splurge, and their counterpart hoping to save. Tapas, charcuterie, and appetizers-as-meals have taken over the modern restaurant scene. While chefs all over add their signature spin to timeless dishes like ceviche, the majority of these recipes remain largely replicable.

Below are your Splurge v. Save modern foodie date night ideas.

Charcuterie

9b4f00dc-ae72-4e01-a990-f53606e5bf06-2067-00000243f6ca3abd_tmp

Splurge

The “Wine Lover’s Board” from Maxine’s on Shine (337 N Shine Ave) boasts six different cheeses from soft to firm to aged and all the best in between. This cheesy sextuplet is served alongside fruit, nuts, meats, and bread. Swine & Sons (595 W Fairbanks Ave) offers a similar selection with a charcuterie plate and artisan cheese board on the menu. Both serve beer and wine–a super-dry Riesling pairing best with salted meats.

Save

To recreate the experience at home, pick up something bubbly and dry from the wine section then head to the deli. Grab a range of mild and bold flavors from the meat and cheese sections. One or two jams, dried or fresh seasonal fruits, and a sliced baguette or crackers will make your charcuterie board restaurant-ready. Publix, local butchers (like Swine & Sons), and natural food markets are all great places to pick up your ingredients.

Tapas

f712c18e-ac73-427f-92d5-7509f823a256-2067-000002440e325e84_tmp

Splurge

Santiago’s Bodega (802 Virginia Dr) provides cold and hot tapas of Italian, Spanish, and Greek inspiration. Tapas are made-to-share so feel free to order the beef carpaccio from the cold and saganaki from the hot (a dream meat and cheese coupling).

Ceviche downtown (125 W Church St) combines all of the above under an extensive wine list. Their menu includes charcuterie; cold and hot tapas in fish, vegetable, and beef; and of course, ceviche. If you’re in an adventurous mood, try the “Pulpo”–an octopus and capers ceviche.

Save

As long as you’ve got cooked shrimp and a pure, citrus juice you have the beginnings of a ceviche dish. After that, dice your favorite vegetables (or fruits) such as cucumbers, avocados, red onions, tomatoes, peppers, or mangoes. Season with garlic and fresh herbs to taste. Refrigerate for one hour then let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
A margarita on the rocks, or simply a shot of tequila, pairs best with this citric dish.

12 Nights of O-Town X-mas

If you’re counting down the best ways to spend your final nights of the 2016 holiday season, then this list is for you.

1. Buy a poinsettia
December 12 is National Poinsettia Day and while these flowers bloom in the dark of winter, they look beautiful and keep year round in Florida’s climate. They’re one of Mexico’s largest exports to the US and any botanical work should be enjoyed with one of Mexico’s other largest exports: tequila. Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar offers over 400 varieties.

2. Make hot chocolate
December 13 is National Hot Cocoa Day and another Christmas tradition borrowed from our Central American neighbors. The Aztecs used poinsettias and hot cocoa for medicinal purposes. To spice up your mug add a stick of cinnamon or a few tablespoons of your favorite bourbon. To really spice things up try Bauhaus bar’s craft cocktails.

3. Go ice skating
Technically the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den in Maitland offers year round winter sports fun, but really now is the best time to take a spin on the ice. Bring a jacket, enjoy the cold, the coke back outside and enjoy the 80 degree weather. To refuel, Sam Snead’s Tavern is down the block and rumored to have been featured in a Snoop Dogg rap of the same name.

4. See the lights
There may not be any snow on the ground, but the Christmas spirit is still in the air. There’s plenty of Christmas lights outside the parks to take advantage of in every corner of Orlando. Light Up UCF on the East side, the downtown Orlando Christmas Tree in Lake Eola, Winterset Drive, Westshire Neighborhood, and a home on 1642 Sunburst Way in Kissimmee that has its own website (christmaswonders.com) due to its spectacular seasonal display.

a8564292-0894-46f4-aa78-5479d2900039-1215-000001bb0a9047fd_tmp

5. Wear an ugly sweater
And wear it to a party! What started as a pretty, lamentable gift has turned into ironic holiday fashion statement. If none of your friends or the office is throwing an Ugly Sweater Party this year The Hourglass Brewery hosts one on the 17th, the Copper Rocket Pub has theirs on the 18th, and Will’s Pub rounds out the list with a Christmas night party.

6. Decorate the tree
By now we’re all tired of the ever-breakable, mono-colored glass balls historically used to decorate the tree. This year try something different, something you. What about sizzling bacon or golden reindeer turds? On esty, it’s your heart’s desire.

7. See a movie
With the advent of dinner in a movie at theaters like Aloma Cinema Grill and AMC Universal Cineplex, date night got a lot easier. AMC theaters and Cobb Plaza Cinema Café serve alcohol to get your spirits up. And this year your Christmas movie offerings are aplenty: Office Christmas Party, Almost Christmas, Bad Santa 2, and classics like Polar Express.

8. Go to Disney
This is definitely the most tourist-y option on the list but come on! We live so close to one of the best holiday celebrations in the country. The entire park is transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with falling snow. And if you can’t afford an international vacation this year, visiting Epcot is the way to experience the seasonal spirit around the world.

9. See the Magic
Three games in four days and six games before Christmas isn’t bad. Orlando reps the Magic big time in bumper stickers but how about switching it up with a Magic ugly Christmas sweater or tree ornament? The Amway also puts on their 12 Days of Ticket Giveaways if you’re feeling lucky.

10. Visit a holiday bar
Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge on Central offers up season-themed cold ones like Anchor’s Christmas Ale and Coconuts Roasting Over an Open Fire. The real reason to grab a drink at this spot has nothing to do with their frosted windows or cabin-like decor: snow-cone cocktails.

f8257699-8391-4a87-b97b-0ae37d124a8d-1215-000001bbef09ede4_tmp

11. Go shopping
Florida Mall, The Mall at Millennia, and The Outlets are going to be a collective consumer nightmare this time of year. Ditch the stress and crowds for Church Street’s Alive @ Five, featuring live music, nickel beers, and vendors for your last-minute shopping.

12. Bond with friends
Before everyone jets off to various parts of country to visit family, go out for one last drink with games. Bars like Sportstown in the Milk District or Firkin & Kegler’s offer darts and pool. But maybe try some trivia on a Thursday night at Cloak and Blaster, Campus Cards & Games, or Lil Indies. Win, lose, or just drink to good times before the new year.

Get Drunk On Culture: Art And Wine Down Wednesday At Ember Orlando

What goes better together than art and wine? Art and wine at Ember Orlando on a Wednesday with their Wine Down Wednesday specials, that’s what.

On August 24th – a Wednesday in case you hadn’t guessed – from 5 to 9 pm, Ember is changing the game for the traditional art walk by tantalizing all your senses in one space. It’s a chance to get up close and personal with emerging artists, and browse or discuss their work face-to-face.

Bull Full Body Paint By Artist Shannon Holt

Art And Wine Collide At Ember Orlando

Who’s invited? Local artists and professionals, wine enthusiasts, art collectors, intellectuals, and creative people alike, plus anyone who just happens to love a sophisticatedly awesome party.

What else? At each Art and Wine Down event, Ember will feature a spotlight artist, who will bring live entertainment to the evening. We’re not giving too much away about this, though; you’ll have to show up to find out more in person. What we can tell you, is this coming Wednesday, the spotlight artist is fine art body painter, Shannon Holt. We’ll let your imaginations run wild with that one.

Holt is classically trained in the visual arts, having earned her BFA from Tyler School of Art Philadelphia, and was a finalist on the body paint competition show, Skin Wars. She’s competed in international body art competitions, major festivals, and has been sponsored by companies such as Red Bull. We promise you won’t be disappointed by what she brings to the show.

Text: WINE to 25827 For $10 Entry To Wine Down Wednesday

Wait, there’s more? Yes, there will also be a silent auction held during the duration of the Wine Down event. Each artist involved in the show will enter their work and set a starting bid for the piece. Guests can view the pieces for auction at the tower bar and have until 8:45 pm to cast their bid for the artwork they want to take home at the end of the night.

Every Wednesday, during the Wine Down hours, for an admission fee of $15 for ladies and $20 for the gents, guests are treated to bottomless wine and sangria as well as select beer and champagne. Even better, enjoy the endless appetizers they offer as well. And, as if this isn’t enough motivation to get out and Wine Down, if you text ‘Wine’ to 25827 before 7 pm, the entrance fee goes down to $10. Easy as that.

So it goes without saying, if you love art, wine, beer, and good company, then this is one event #WorthDoing.

10 Reasons Ember Orlando Is #WorthDoing

It’s not easy to find places that encompass everything people look for when it comes to restaurants and venues that are fun, have good food and drinks, and are one of a kind. Yet, we’re here to tell you that Ember Orlando is one of the few that has everything you’ve ever looked for in a #1 hotspot. This place guarantees a good time and offers specials every day of the week and all year long that make it a must when deciding where to go. Here are 10 reasons why Ember Orlando is or will soon become your new favorite destination. #WORTHDOING

GREAT ATMOSPHERE.

Assuming Ember is still on your to-do list, keep in mind that it’s atmosphere is like no other provided downtown. Not only is the venue spacious enough to where you won’t have to worry about stepping on anyone’s toes (or someone stepping on yours), but they’ve got both indoor and outdoors seating with a unique Mediterranean setting. You’ll immediately forget you’re in the heart of Orlando.

GREAT FOOD

Decisions, Decisions…that’s what you’ll be thinking when you’re skimming the menu filled with endless options that’ll have your mouth watering. From Mediterranean plates to smokehouse selections, Ember offers something for everyone.

EMBER’S DELICIOUS DISHES DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

When great food and delivery team up, it makes it seem like everything is right in the world. If you haven’t checked out their delicious menu options that can be delivered to your door thanks to OrderUp—GO NOW. This is sure to become your go-to when you can’t bring yourself to get out of the house and want to enjoy great food from Ember Orlando at home.

WINE DOWN WEDNESDAYS

If you’re one of the many in need of a humpday pick-me-up, Wine Down Wednesdays at Ember offers bottomless beverages for a reasonable fee that include all the favorites like mimosas, sangria, champagne, select beer and endless apps. If that’s not enough to get you through the rest of the week well, Ember also offers plenty to look forwards to.

HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS

Besides Friday marking the beginning of the weekend, it’s also the day when we are all blessed with some of the best drink specials in town. At Ember, starting at 4 pm, the 3-4-1 special is their generous way of supplying you with the key to kick starting your Friday night right. From there, the rest is up to you.

SUNDAY BRUNCH

Something that’s become almost as religious as going to church deserves to be spent drinking and eating at the hottest spots in town. Ember is one that provides an All You Can Eat brunch with bottomless mimosas and red & white sangria for a price that’s too good to refuse $29.95.

They’ll be more than helpful in working with you and providing everything you need for an unforgettable night.
