Mid-Week Break: Orlando Around the Web for February 02, 2011

While I’m working hard to bring you news and reviews of things happening around Orlando and its surroundings, there are some other great blogs out there who are doing the same.

So here are some recent posts that you might enjoy reading.

If you missed the Orlando Flash Mob that appeared Saturday afternoon at the Mall at Millenia, you can catch it all on YouTube.

Miss last weekend’s Monster Truck Jam? Orlando Attractions magazine has a full photo recap of the sold-out event. They also took to the sky for some aerial views of the transformation of Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island to Hyperion Wharf.

Want more photos? Ok…Orlando Sentinel has a gallery up from last weekend’s Warrior Dash down in Lake Wales. Local media maven Ted Murphy has his own personal recap of the event and makes it sound so much fun that even I may participate next year.

There’s no library in the Four Corners area of Polk County, so, as CFNews13 reports, they’ve come up with an unusual solution – vending machines.

Back to the Orlando Sentinel, as Sherry Boas takes us on a tour of Orlando’s Asian supermarkets.

I wasn’t able to attend the Shipyard Emporium’s grand opening last week due to a cranky car, but there’s a great photo gallery courtesy of Amie Mizell.

Finally, if you’re looking for stuff to do, The Daily City has the rundown on all of the free events during the next two weeks of United Arts ArtsFest 2011.
