Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) has announced that their next theater production will take place in a new location at the Fashion Square Mall in Orlando.
Repurposing the former Express storefront at the mall, CFCArts will offer its next production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella at this location from April 15 through May 2, 2021.
It’s a sign of the times, but last week the Orlando Business Journal reported that the owners of Orlando Fashion Square Mall have put the property up for sale.
It’s Central Florida’s oldest major mall, having opened in 1973, but it also sits away from the busy tourist areas. As a result it generates over $100 per sq foot less of profit than the company’s other properties.
Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, which owns the mall, will also sell off three Pennsylvania malls and one in New Jersey, to help pay off debts.
The food truck phenomena has firmly taken hold in Orlando, so since the first Orlando Food Bazaar in March went so well, The Daily City has decided to organize another.
Bazaar #2 will take place this Sunday, May 1, 2011, in the Dillards parking lot at Fashion Square Mall (E. Colonial Dr). The event will run from 7pm to midnight and that’s a firm cut-off – if you’re in line and haven’t ordered by midnight, you won’t be able to. So get there early.
The second incarnation of the Bazaar will feature more food trucks to try out. As of today, the following trucks are scheduled to appear:
- Big Wheel Provisions Truck
- CJ Jerk Shack Island BBQ
- Country Chuck Wagon
- The Crooked Spoon
- Korean BBQ Taco Box
- Red Eye BBQ
- Sunset Ice Facebook
- The Taco Lady Facebook
- The Treehouse Truck
- The Traveling Gourmet (making its Orlando debut)
- The Wing Commander (from Miami)
- Winter Park Fish Company
- The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck
There will also be DJs, live podcasting and an Orlando Food Blogger table so you can meet the people behind several local food blogs.
The event is free; the food is not. Bring chairs or something to sit on while you eat. Bring cash in low denominations ($1 & $5 bills). Bring patience – the lines are usually long and trucks may occasionally run out of items.
Most importantly, bring your appetite.
