Meanwhile Around Town
CityWalk clubs were a bit spartan last night despite good weather and a public school holiday in Orange County. Red Coconut and Latin Quarter didn't really feel crowded until nearly 11:30pm and 80's Night at The Groove never did get crowded. Only about 20 people dancing to the 70's rock band over in Margaritaville.
Looks like CityWalk is getting another food venue; a sushi bar is under construction over near the Moe's/Panda/Burger King food court. Halloween Horror Nights closed at midnight last night and the food court wisely stayed open for those departing. There were some pretty long lines as HHN patrons headed up the escalator to deal with their hunger. HHN is open until 2am tonight and Saturday night.
Speaking of Halloween, it's just 2 weeks away and falls on a Saturday this year. In the near future I'll be posting a listing of some of the club costume events scheduled around town, for those of you who will be dressing up.
Talking to people who went to see DJ Icey last Saturday night at Firestone. Concert had a big crowd and of course he played the requisite songs that he's famous for. Fellow Orlando native DJ's Baby Anne and Kimball Collins were spotted in VIP. Someone said the dancing girls in their tall furry boots is getting old and Icey needs to update his show. Earlier this week someone posted in Comments about plastic cola bottles being launched and causing a mess. Overall sentiment though is that it was a really good show!
Jimmy Joslin is the guest DJ at House of Blues this Sunday night. Here I go prejudging again but I expect him to be playing: Techno. Joslin also opens for Tiësto tonight at UCF Arena. Enjoy your weekend and see you out at da clubs!
