Meanwhile Around Town
Back in the 90's the dynamic duo of DJ Dave Cannalte and DJ Kimball Collins combined to create the Wizards of Aahz, spinning techno at the Beacham Theater (now Tabu) in downtown Orlando. Sources tell Save PI that the two will be returning to Tabu on Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 25th to recreate their act. Everyone knows Dave Cannalte as the former Thursday night DJ at Mannequins! It would be great to see him again reunited with Collins who is apparently moving back from Asia. I'll publish more details once this is announced.
I noticed that Nathan's Famous Hot Dog restaurant in CityWalk had closed down and was under renovations. Sources say that it's going to be replaced by a Fat Tuesday! This is awesome. If you've ever been to Chillers downtown you know that alcoholic Slurpee's are incredibly mind-numbing in more ways than one. Hope this is true and that they stock something like Chillers' Purple Orgasms. Mmmmm!
One of the old rumors was that Disney couldn't reopen any of the clubs on Pleasure Island because the DJ's contract stated that if they did, they'd have to rehire them and pay back wages. Supposedly that clause was valid for a year from closure. So now that we've passed the one year anniversary of the closure, does that mean clubs can be reopened? I don't know. I'm ok with it....if we can just get Disney to agree.
