Buddying Up to Bungalower

Bungalower celebrated their one year anniversary a few weeks ago.  My Bestie and I went to the party at the Hammered Lamb, enjoyed a member cocktail, and partook in a train shot.

Who’s excited about the arts in Orlando? This Media Nerd.

After attending the Red Chair Affair this year, I wound up on the "friends of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts" email list.  They have been sending updates about the construction and news on performances being scheduled there.  They sent an email a couple of weeks ago saying they were offering hard hat… Continue reading Who’s excited about the arts in Orlando?
