Comic legends John Cleese and Eric Idle are performing together on their Together Again At Last…For The Very First Time tour, and it will be making several stops in Central Florida this month.
Cleese and Idle are both veteran performers, who rose to fame as founding members of the comedy troupe, Monty Python. Over the years, both have also had written, performed, and produced wonderfully funny roles outside of Monty Python, in numerous movies and TV series, such as A Fish Called Wanda, Fawlty Towers, and The Rutles. Idle also created the Tony Award-winning musical Spamalot, based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Last week Morimoto Asia opened at Disney Springs to much fanfare, and I had the pleasure of attending the media preview the night before, in conjunction with The Disney Blog.
The evening began with a ceremony attended by several Disney VIP’s as well as Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who not only sang for us, but conducted a traditional sake ceremony involving breaking open a cask with mallets before serving us all with the contents.
Alt-rock band Failure will play the House of Blues Orlando on October 11, with Hum and Torche opening.

Every month, except November and December, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando hosts a live concert called Velvet Sessions. It’s a 21 and over event that features classic rock and pop artists performing in an intimate club-like atmosphere.

If you enjoy Orlando’s annual MegaCon fan convention, you’ll be happy to know they’re holding a second event this fall called MegaCon Fan Days. It will run November 21-22 at the Orange County Convention Center.
Last year MegaCon was bought out by FanExpo, which produces several other North American fan conventions, and this will be their first foray into the South East.
I have to admit I wasn’t that familiar with Cook, though I’d heard a few of his songs on the radio. But this American Idol winner (season 7) definitely turned me into a fan…with only six songs, believe it or not.
Fulton’s Crab House is a favorite among diners headed to Disney Springs for dinner, but did you know they also have a wonderful lunch menu?
Carol and I were recently invited to try out Fulton’s for lunch, and we showed up as they were opening, at 11:30am. We were shown to a table on the second floor with a wonderful view of the lake and The Landing. We were also the only ones in there at first.
