So far the year has been pretty eventful, and it’s easy to lose track of days. But Father’s Day is this weekend, and if you still don’t have plans, I have some ideas for you to check out.
Here are CitySurfing Orlando’s picks for celebrating Father’s Day 2020 in the Orlando area:
Mexican restaurant KAVAS Tacos + Tequila is scheduled to open at Pointe Orlando in September 2020.
Katerina and Vassilis Coumbaros, owners of popular International Drive restaurants Taverna Opa (Greek cuisine) and Tapa Toro (Spanish cuisine), are behind this new restaurant named after a combination of the owner’s first names
Dining, shopping, and entertainment venue Pointe Orlando has announced that it will be undergoing a “transformative redevelopment” starting this fall.
I recently joined several other bloggers to check out items from Marlow’s Tavern‘s summer menu, as well as a few guest faves, and it was a delicious afternoon.
Marlow’s Tavern is featuring a six-week Summer Celebration menu that includes:
If you’re looking for a fun place to have a family outing, or a girl’s night out…or any other gathering where you can eat, drink, and play, then you’ll want to check out Main Event Entertainment which opened recently at Pointe Orlando.
Beginning this week, Orlando’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry kicks off three extra fundraising experiences to sip and nibble on before the main event.
Lafayette’s Orlando is full of southern charm and good food, so when I heard they were now offering a Sunday Brunch, I grabbed Joan and we went to check it out.
The restaurant is located on the 2nd Level of Pointe Orlando, in between I-Drive and Universal Blvd, next to sister eateries B.B. King’s and Itta Bena.
Lafayette’s Orlando may have just opened a few weeks ago, but they aren’t waiting to launch the daily specials.
Their Happy Hour runs daily from 4-6pm and features $4 Bud Light & Yuengling Drafts, $5 House Wine and Wells, and $6 Calls for the beverage specials.
Lafayette’s, a music hall and southern food restaurant, officially opens for business this Monday, July 27, after a weekend of soft openings for dinner.
Located on the second level of Pointe Orlando on International Drive, Lafayette’s is owned by Beale Street Blues Company, which is based in Memphis, so they know their music and southern food.
Summer just started but Marlow’s Tavern is hosting six weeks of Midsummer Cocktail Party fun now through August 3, exclusively at its Winter Park and Pointe Orlando locations.
Guests are invited to enjoy a classic cocktail party featuring handcrafted drinks, craft beers and bold South African wines. The festive beverages will be accompanied by a menu of authentic South African dishes and the chance to win an once-in-a-lifetime trip to Cape Town, South Africa (sans airfare).
To enlighten the summer taste buds on Greek cuisine, Taverna Opa Orlando will host the first of its Air, Land & Sea Summer Wine Dinners on Thursday, June 25.
The June dinner will feature a five-course tasting and wine pairing menu inspired by Air, and highlighting quail as the main dish of the evening. The restaurant’s host Katerina Coumbaros, and wine partners Benziger Family Winery and Luc Belaire, will walk guests through each course and wine pairing.
As if there aren’t enough reasons to make a trip to Pointe Orlando on I-Drive, there will soon be two new ones: Itta Bena and Lafayette’s.
Comedian Carlos Mencia returns to Orlando for a four-night engagement at the Orlando Improv October 30 through November 2.
After graduating from high school, he decided to try stand-up, performing at amateur nights at The Laugh Factory in L.A., then later showcasing at The Comedy Store. Mencia went on to be named “International Comedy Grand Champion” from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on “In Living Color”, “The Arsenio Hall Show”, “Moesha” and ‘An Evening at the Improv”.
He then went on to headline several comedy specials for HBO and Comedy Central, which lead to the debut of “Mind of Mencia” on Comedy Central in 2005. Since the show went off the air, Mencia has been consistently touring, and this week he brings his show to Orlando.
