Club Report: Dick's Last Resort

Orlando has nearly 1 of everything so it was only a matter of time before Dick's Last Resort came to town.  Today marks one week since the venue opened on Vineland Avenue in Lake Buena Vista adjacent the expansion of the Orlando Premium Outlets.
Patrons are required to wear adult bibs and wacky paper hats.  The staff is intentionally obnoxious to the customers similar to Ed Debevic's in Chicago.  (Isn't there someplace at WDW that does that?)  The cuisine is rustic Southern so if you like House of Blues, you're sure to like Dick's. But don't ask for napkins.
70's Disco such as Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" was streaming out of the place when I arrived so I had hoped that DJ's were part of the offering but such is not the case.  They do have live bands on the weekend though.  (Note to Dick's: DJ's are cheaper and more reliable.)
A small bar inside and a huge outdoor patio provide sports-viewing options.
And they do serve wings!  But The Blog does not cover restaurants so our story ends here. Big thanks to reader Jason71 for the heads-up about Dick's.

I had a great time at Dick's at the Mall of America and thought it'd be a great fit for Orlando. Glad there is one there now!

And the Whispering Canyon is supposed to be the slightly edgy place at Disney but it was all toned down due to guests being stupid and not understanding where they were going before going there! I went for my bday one year fully expecting to be embarrassed and was very disappointed.
