I must admit that I am having too much fun in Orlando. A few weeks ago, we visited the awesome Wine/Pet Store called Bullfish (located on Park Avenue in Winter Park). The store owners were having a Wine Tasting/Fundraiser for the Greyhound Association. It was a blast! The store was packed with people, dogs, wine and food. My dog, Zoe, even got to go (her first wine tasting) and particpated in the doggie modeling. After the tasting, we grabbed dinner at Bosphorous, a Turkish restaurant also on Park Avenue. Despite the bad weather, we had a great meal and a wonderful Friday night.
I've also managed to find time to check out Urban Flat's Wine Down Wednesday with my friend Brandi. It is a great way to relax mid-week and catch up on some social time. Not to mention some great food and wine.
Fifi's Patisserie is another one of my new favorite spots I have visited recently. Fifi’s cuisine is best characterized as Mediterranean, influenced by the cuisines of France, Israel, and Greece. The Steak Salad is wonderful...and their sweets are sinful!!
Brandi and I also went out on the town one Saturday night. We started with dinner at Kres Chop House and joined up with the rest of the partygoers on Church Street for the 70's Fundraiser Party (lots of wigs, short shorts, high socks and even a guy on rollerskates). We ended the night at The Oak Room.
This past weekend, we hit the Ivanhoe Row for some "antiquing" one afternoon. Although we did not find any antiques we could not live without, we did find a great new boutique called the Redhead Lounge Boutique. Owner Erin Joi Skalde recently opend the store, which is located at 1600 N. Orange Avenue, Suite E (inside the Washburn Imports Building). Erin showcases a great collection of trendy and unique clothing items and also makes her own accessories on-site. We had a great visit with her, and I did find a dress I could not live without.
Like I said....too much fun in Orlando!!
