Well, howdy to ya!
Got a favorite food truck in Central Florida, to grab a guaranteed delicious bite of nosh? We’re curious….
Obviously we can’t include them all so please write yours in if you don’t see it on the list.
This pretty much sums up how we’re feeling on this Thanksgiving Day! How about you?
Special thanks to one of our Pulse Fans for sending our way.
I don’t even know where to start with this. You know I love food. Anyone who knows me well knows I can rarely resist any sort of sugar or sweets. So when I finally went to visit the newly opened Se7en Bites near Colonialtown, well…I was one happy camper.
Occupied in the space that was once Spooky’s, this cute little neighborhood-friendly establishment has already gained some great buzz in the local community and beyond. Word is, too, they’re working on getting a license to serve wine and beer, and build a deck of sorts (or something similar) that would allow for outdoor seating.
Hang on. I’ll go grab you a paper towel to wipe your drool. RIGHT?! And even though I didn’t include a photo of it here, my favorite thing I took home (other than about 1,000 virtual calories) was a big ‘ole, fat piece of amazing chocolate cake. In my defense, I ate on in for several days throughout the following week.
You’ve got to check this place out. If not for these awesome bakery items featured, they do have other more “food” items to serve. Oh, also another reason to visit: one of the owners is a friend of mine. Support local!

Calling all ice cream fanatics! Or fans! Or just “sometimes I get a hankerin’ for the sweet cream” people.
Ever noticed Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop sittin’ nice and pretty on the side of Mills Avenue in Winter Park? Me neither, really, until a friend pulled me over there one weekend afternoon for a little indulgence. Ahem – A LOT of indulgence, actually.
I mean, seriously – how cute is this place?
That little girl behind the counter? She’s one of the friendliest darn ‘lil gals I’ve ever seen, and is likely the daughter of the owners. Hopefully she’s there when you visit (or have visited).
Here are the location deets when you’re ready to feed your cream-cravin’:

So that’s not officially her name, but that’s pretty much what it is. And a very large bush, she has.
To find out more about this piece and the other art installations in downtown Orlando, visit the See Art Orlando website.
Did anyone see this along with the other pieces at this past week’s See Art Orlando Celebration?
Here are a few of the others we’ve previously posted about:
Discovering a new place to burn some calories is always pretty cool. Thinking back, the last time I was this excited about a ‘find’ was when my good friend, Dena Davis, started her boot camps at Lake Eola.
This morning, I headed to the 6 a.m. spin class at SWEAT Gym in College Park. Even though I lived right across the street for years, I never made it in until I moved 20 minutes away. Sigh, my timing sucks, but better late than never, right?
The moment I walked in, I knew this was the type of gym where people go to get down to business. It’s not ultra-fancy, but you get the feeling immediately that you’re about to get a killer workout. And, even at 6 a.m. the place is bustling. Hell, there was a class even earlier than the one I attended and it was packed! The next 45 minutes were awesome–Beth Lewis led a group of about 12 of us on a high-energy workout sure to leave your legs in noodle-mode for the rest of the morning.
Classes are $15 for dropins, but the gym also offers 6-packs and a few other options. Wanna train? That’s an option, too. One look at hardbody-owner Laura Allen and you’ll be hooked. So, if you’re looking for a way to offset all the pumpkin pie you plan to inhale over the next week or two, head on over to SWEAT.
You know those pictures we’ve been sharing of the new art installation pieces in downtown Orlando, as part of the See Art Orlando project? Well, tonight is a free “celebration” of all eight pieces so you can check them out.
See Art Orlando shared this on their Facebook Page earlier this morning:
Today is the day! See you Downtown Orlando tonight for the free community celebration of See Art Orlando! There will be music, entertainment for all ages, food trucks and prizes at all 8 sculptures.”
