Readers react to stories from last week. On Aug. 15, we reported that Orlando is receiving $400,000 to create art installations along I-4. The money comes from the Florida Department of Transportation, I-4 Mobility Partners and SGL Constructors, who formed the I-4 Project Art endowment, part of a beautification project to help drivers forget about the “old I-4” once construction on the I-4 Ultimate project (eventually) ends. @Jorge Mesa I don’t need I-4 to look prettier, I need it to be expanded to accommodate the massive amounts of traffic that go through there. @Lisa Sy We need help for the homeless in Orlando more than art. SMH. And art will not help us forget what a nightmare I-4 is or the poor urban planning and greed that made it that way. Getting it done night be the most helpful thing to help us forget – give the money to the needy. @Maria Pichardo-Matias What about giving people a decent living wage! Better yet, give that money to the public school children and teachers. @Edward Seymour II I guarantee they give a lot of the money to artists who don’t even live in this community.

@Kyle Roy Raker Can it be used to hire a company that will actually finish the construction on time? @Laura Hart You need something to do while you’re waiting in that long line of slow-moving cars! @Shawn Skinner How about building an integrated homeless village out of artistically done steel containers and making the ablebodied residents custodians of the village? @Justin Hamshar How about planting more trees along I-4 instead of having a concrete jungle ... @David Skee Buckalew Perhaps murals to highlight the business in each district that’s off I-4? @Andrew Saman I say use that 400K to retest everyone with a license. @Christopher Flint The expression “lipstick on a pig” comes to mind. @Renee Powell It really, really warms my heart to see such solidarity on an Orlando Weekly post. I think this the first time people aren’t yelling at each other. Frustration about I-4 is able to unite us as one, lol.

Orange County Library System is offering a pretty sweet deal to cardholders. Library officials announced their new Local Wanderer

That includes the Orlando Museum of Art, the Orange County Regional History Center and Hard Rock Live, among other museums, theaters and sporting events.

There’s a growing movement to stop construction of a multimillion-dollar museum memorializing the Pulse nightclub shooting. The Community Coalition Against a Pulse Museum says

it has more than 100 members consisting of survivors, victims’ family members, and LGBTQ activists and allies who see the museum as a “death tourism site.” A Change.org petition calling for no museum garnered more than 40,000 signatures. The OnePulse Foundation has responded to criticism by saying the museum will be modeled after the one in Oklahoma City and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City. The coalition points to the Sandy Hook, Aurora and Columbine memorials as examples of open public spaces that didn’t undertake million-dollar developments to commemorate mass shootings.

Cities can’t ban Styrofoam in Florida, a court ruled. Coral Gables

Trump has spent at least $12.5 million on Facebook ads to date, and the majority target Florida. The president is specifically

won’t be able to enact a Styrofoam ban after the 3rd District Court of Appeal overturned a ruling by a Miami-Dade County circuit judge, according to the News Service of Florida. The ban in the South Florida city was first approved in 2016, which led the Florida Retail Federation and Super Progreso to sue. The question at hand was whether the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services bill that bans local governments from regulating Styrofoam were unconstitutional. This most recent ruling says they’re not. On top of the legal aspect, the retail federation had argued that thousands of retailers depend on Styrofoam.

reaching out to middle-aged men, ages 25 to 54. That’s according to the British online security company Comparitech, which looked at data from the Facebook Ad Library between March 2018 and June 2019. Trump outspends the top 25 political pages on Facebook, and allocates less than 10 percent of his advertising budget to target people under 25. “As the most populous swing state, Florida will be the deciding factor in Trump’s re-election in 2020. The president has not only directed the majority of his ads toward Floridians, but he has also spent a significant amount of time there,” the report stated.

A proposed law could cut funding to private voucher schools with discriminatory practices. A bill filed by Rep. Anna

Eskamani, D-Orlando, would require private voucher schools to comply with anti-discrimination practices, ensuring they “may not deny enrollment to a student based on the student’s race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.” Right now, private schools across the state receive millions of dollars in state funding, but some discriminate against students by refusing to admit those who are disabled or LGBTQ. Under Eskamani’s proposed bill, schools that don’t change their policy will see their payments suspended or simply lose eligibility. The laws would also cut out lax qualification requirements for teachers at such schools. Teachers would need a baccalaureate or higher degree, plus three years of teaching experience in public or private schools. orlandoweekly.com

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BOOMING MARKET WITH PES HOMES REALTY PES Homes can help you find your forever home as the Orlando real estate market continues to evolve. Whether you’re a buyer, seller or investor, Central Florida is a great market for real estate and investment. Sales in Florida make up more than 20 percent of real estate sales across the nation. Within Orlando itself, the market has grown 3 percent each year over the last five years, says Daniel Ortiz, a broker for PES Homes Realty. “A lot of people are under the impression that the real estate market is going to implode or collapse, but my advice to them is to look at your area,” Ortiz says. “Look at the amount of tourism and infrastructure that is being invested in Orlando and Central Florida. You can see it by the construction on all major roadways and the cranes downtown.”

their house for,” Ortiz says. “The best way to get an accurate estimate of your home’s value is to have a certified real estate agent or broker do a comparative market analysis on your property.” For homes that are $375,000 or more, PES agents like to take the extra step of having them appraised. This allows brokers and sellers to know the value of the property itself rather than just comparing it to nearby property prices. “We like to take this step before listing your property to ensure it is listed at the price the bank will actually accept,” Ortiz says. “It is an extra cost, but it could bring you a bigger return, so it’s worth it.”

Under the parent company Private Equity Solutions, PES Homes Realty has grown over the past year into a small, but mighty real estate agency with 13 agents in areas like Orlando, Sarasota, Fort Myers and Miami.

A home feature that can be one of the biggest factors in determining overall value is the roof. Roof appraisals are one requirement for homes purchased with Federal Housing Administration loans.

“All real estate agencies use the same tools. What makes PES Homes Realty stand apart from others is the primary focus of building long-term relationships with our clients,” Ortiz says. “We want to fulfill our clients’ needs over their lifetime –– from buying, selling or investing.”

“If your roof has a short lifespan left, the bank will request that it has to be replaced or ask for a credit towards closing costs,” Ortiz says. “As a seller, it’s very important to be aware of the condition and warranty of your homes roof.”

Tips for First-time Home Buyers When it comes to buying a home, one of the many areas PES agents specialize in is first-time home buyers. While it can be daunting to make your first real estate purchase, Ortiz says keeping an open mind can help you avoid some mistakes. New buyers often set a budget, look for homes that are at the top of it and fail to consider other costs. “A few of the things that will really affect your loan is the homeowner association fees and taxes,” Ortiz says. “You may find a home listed for a value that’s going to give you the mortgage you want. However, if your HOA fees are $200 to $300 a month and you’re also in an area where the property taxes range from $3,000 to $5,000 each year, you’re going to end up paying a lot more.” Purchasing a home in a location that’s close but not exactly in your ideal neighborhood is one way to avoid high monthly costs. While this may add a few minutes to your daily commutes, it’s an easy way to save money while still getting a beautiful home. Be an Informed Seller One of the very first steps any seller should take before selling their home is to find out how much it’s actually worth. “A typical mistake sellers make is going off of what they saw or heard a neighbor recently sold

Making a Great Investment PES Homes Realty also works with investors who are looking to get a great percentage rate on return or acquire liquid capital. By finding out your cap rate, PES agents can determine what type of investment is best for you. “If you need to sell an investment property, you can do so after two to three years of holding,” Ortiz says. “Keep in mind Orlando’s real estate market has grown consistently over the past five years, so this is a great place to be and invest in.” For locals, a great way to cover your home mortgage while diversifying your income is renting an apartment unit downtown. For international investors, PES agents can help you find traditional and non-conforming qualified mortgage loans, while working with your exchange rates. PES agents can also assist clients who speak English, Spanish, Portugese, German and Russian. If you’re interested in purchasing a property or learning more about PES Homes Realty attend the company’s free Networking and First-time Home Buyer Seminar on Aug. 29. The RSVP-only event will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at the Citrus Club located at 255 S. Orange Ave. #1800 To RSVP, visit peshomerealty.eventbrite.com

NEWS POLY PASSIONS Appeals court blocks city Styrofoam ban BY JIM SAUNDERS, N EWS SERV I C E OF F LOR I DA

Siding with the Florida Retail Federation

and upholding the constitutionality of state laws, an appeals court Wednesday rejected a 2016 move by the city of Coral Gables to ban the use of Styrofoam food containers. A three-judge panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal overturned a ruling by a Miami-Dade County circuit judge who found three state laws unconstitutional and determined Coral Gables was not prevented from enacting the Styrofoam ban. The case focused heavily on a wide-ranging Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services bill that state lawmakers passed in March 2016. The bill barred local governments from regulating food-related polystyrene, commonly known as Styrofoam, containers and made that prohibition retroactive to any local ordinances passed after Jan. 1, 2016. Coral Gables approved a Styrofoam-ban ordinance in February 2016, and the retail federation later filed the lawsuit challenging its legality. Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Jorge Cueto ruled that the 2016 state law – and two earlier state laws dealing with regulation of packaging – were unconstitutional

and backed the Coral Gables ordinance. Part of Cueto’s ruling dealt with Miami-Dade County home-rule powers included in the Florida Constitution and said the 2016 state law improperly singled out Coral Gables. That was because Coral Gables was the only city affected by the Legislature’s decision to make the state law retroactive to Jan. 1, 2016. “To construe the statute otherwise would allow the Legislature to defeat the express provisions of the home rule amendment and destroy the intended autonomy in local affairs that Miami-Dade County and its municipalities enjoy,” Cueto wrote. But the appeals court Wednesday rejected that conclusion. “We disagree with such an expansive interpretation of the home rule amendment,” said the 14-page ruling, written by Judge Norma Lindsey and joined by judges Ivan Fernandez and Eric Hendon. “It is well-established that the home rule amendment must be strictly construed to maintain the supremacy of (state) general laws. (The 2016 state law) plainly preempts all municipalities statewide from enacting local polystyrene regulations after January 1, 2016. Although the city (Coral Gables) may have been the first munici-

STRUCK OUT Judge backs state on teacher unions law BY JIM SAUNDERS, N SF

A Leon County circuit judge the requirements did not apply to other has rejected arguments by teacher unions that a controversial 2018 education law violates collective-bargaining rights and improperly singles out teachers among public employees. Judge Angela Dempsey on Friday issued an eight-page decision siding with the state’s arguments on the constitutionality of the law, which can require teacher unions to be recertified to represent employees. Such recertification is required if fewer than 50 percent of the employees eligible for representation are dues-paying members. The Florida Education Association, unions in several counties and individual teachers filed the lawsuit in July 2018 challenging the constitutionality of the law. In part, they argued that the new requirement violated collective-bargaining rights and equal-protection rights as 16

public-sector unions. But Dempsey wrote that the law did not violate collective-bargaining rights and pointed to the state’s teacher shortage as a reason for treating teachers different than other employees. She wrote that the state “recognizes the need for further accommodations when it comes to public school teachers.” “Here, the goal of the statute is to afford public-school teachers greater control over the collective bargaining where the union dues-paying members of a bargaining unit comprise less than 50 percent of the teachers,” Dempsey wrote. “The means for reaching that goal is the requirement that the union representatives must furnish the requisite data per the statute’s provisions. The provisions themselves do not oust the union from its representative position, but instead trigger the oppor-

pality to regulate polystyrene after January 1, 2016, (the state law) does not impermissibly single out the city or Miami-Dade County.” The appeals court said the three state laws at issue in the case are unambiguous and “expressly pre-empt the city’s polystyrene ordinance.” Local attempts to ban Styrofoam and other products such as plastic bags and plastic straws have drawn heavy debate in recent years in Florida and elsewhere, with supporters of the bans arguing that the products cause environmental damage. A city of Coral Gables website said the goal of the Styrofoam ordinance is to “promote replacing expanded polystyrene items with reusable, recyclable or compostable alternatives whenever possible thus helping remove it from the waste stream.” But business groups have fought such bans and have received support from the Republican-controlled Legislature. In a news release issued when it challenged the Coral Gables ordinance, the Florida Retail Federation’s then-president Randy Miller said thousands of retailers rely on polystyrene products and that “implementing a patchwork of different ordinances like this, which could change from street to street or block to block, is not only confusing to customers but also difficult for retailers.” Lawmakers this year passed a bill (HB 771) that would have blocked local governments from banning plastic straws, but Gov. Ron DeSantis vetoed the measure. In part, DeSantis wrote in a veto message that “the state should simply allow local communities to address this issue through the political process. Citizens who oppose plastic straw ordinances can seek recourse by electing people who share their views.”

tunity for the employees to reconsider whether to alter the status of their representation.” The union recertification issue was included in a massive education law (HB 7055) that the Republican-dominated Legislature passed in 2018. The lawsuit filed by the unions also addressed other constitutional issues, including whether the legislation violated a requirement that laws address single subjects. Dempsey’s ruling addressed only the collective-bargaining and equal-protection arguments and dealt with a motion by the unions and teachers for summary judgment on those issues. In the motion, attorneys for the unions and teachers wrote that the recertification requirement in the law “imposes numerous burdens upon instructional employees, but no other category of public employees.” If required to go through the recertification process, a union would be required by the law to get statements of support from 30 percent of the bargaining unit and then hold an election. “If it fails to earn a favorable vote of 50 percent of the voting employees, it faces decertification,” the motion for

summary judgment said. “This will leave the employees of the unit with no collective bargaining representative. Even if the organization is not decertified, the employees in the bargaining unit are burdened by their chosen representative having to redirect its resources from collective bargaining activities in order to ensure it meets a certain membership level every year. These are significant burdens upon plaintiffs’ right to effective collective bargaining.” But Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office, defending the law for the state, argued in a document last month that the “goal of the statute is clearly to afford public-school teachers better protection against labor unions that have come to represent less than 50 percent of the teachers.” “The provisions themselves do not oust the union from its position, but instead trigger the opportunity for the employees – the majority of whom are not dues-paying members – to reconsider whether to alter the status of their representation, including the possibility of deciding to go forward without representation, as is their right,” the document said. feedback@orlandoweekly.com

Pride, pageantry, performance, triumph! Of course we’re talking about our annual Best of Orlando issue and blowout party. But, we thought to ourselves, that also seems to sum up the unparalleled spectacle that is professional wrestling, and let’s face it, Orlando has a pro wrestling scene that’s in a state of very rude health at this present moment. Florida has been a wrestling hotbed for as long as most fans can remember – from Dusty Rhodes and Kevin Sullivan bringing down the house in CWF in the 1980s down through WWE’s Wrestlemania being held in Orlando in 2017 on through to the present day. And for wrestling fans in 2019 who want to keep it local and delve deeper than just watching WWE’s weekly television shows, it’s a good time to be a fan – there’s something on offer for all tastes. Full Sail brings you the WWE stars of tomorrow at their NXT events (and according to some news reports, these may soon expand into a regularly televised show). USA Pro mixes old stars of WCW and ECW with the cream of regional indie talent. The upstart Atomic Revolutionary Wrestling runs primo events with young talent all over Orlando, Cocoa and everywhere in between, even staging a wrestling cruise of late. Pro Wrestling 2.0 has leveled up big-time with their new weekly Genesis TV tapings. Team Vision Dojo trains ’em up and then gives the stars of tomorrow a live showcase with their “I Believe in Wrestling” events. The brand-new Nerd Street Wrestling is adding some much-needed diversity and representation and, yes, out-there fun to the pro-graps game. And the punkrock influenced Mayhem on Mills fully embraces all the oversized spectacle and gonzo weirdness of wrestling, and makes it even stranger. And there are more coming up every day!

Teddy Stigma

Wildcard heel Teddy Stigma has been wrestling for more than a decade for countless promotions, but is currently a mainstay of Mayhem on Mills. He has been known to teleport during a match.

What do you remember about your first match? Being on the bad end of a sunset flip powerbomb to the floor and my head bouncing off the concrete, which is probably why I can’t remember anything else from that match.

Describe your in-ring persona. I’m an irony-soaked husk of my former self.

Who is your dream opponent? A younger version of myself so I can beat some sense into him.


BEST OF ORLANDO 2019 Lexi Gomez

The Unbreakable Lexi Gomez is a young wrestler on the move, making a name for herself both solo and in tandem with her teammates in “The Rapture” stable, Jay Sky and Richard King (who are also pictured in this issue’s photos).

What do you remember about your first match? I remember being absolutely nervous! My coach asked me if I wanted to debut in the all women’s tournament for CWE, and of course I said yes. I didn’t have gear or anything that I would feel comfortable in. So I went to Forever 21 and tried on a million things until I found something. The song I chose for my entrance was “Confident” by Demi Lovato. I was anything but confident! But everything turned out fine and I had the best time ever.

Describe your in-ring persona. I call myself “The Unbreakable Lexi Gomez.” And I wouldn’t say it’s exactly a “character”; it’s more the person I wish I was 24/7. I struggle with depression/anxiety and there was a time in my life when I was completely broken as a person. … But when I’m in the ring I’m Unbroken. I’m strong and powerful, there’s nothing that can break my spirit. Not even myself. She’s the person I want to be all the time.

What companies have you wrestled for? I’ve wrestled with a lot of companies. I’ve wrestled all over Florida, Alabama, Georgia and recently Puerto Rico.

Have you held any titles? I won my first title fight in January, at OCW. And I just recently became the new Riot Pro Wrestling Women’s Champion.

Destiny

Just as Japanese legend Keiji Mutoh became the mysterious Great Muta, so local wrestler Kallee Topper (who also wrestles as Raegan Fire) assumes the unpredictable alter ego of Destiny when a match requires some chaos.

What do you remember about your first match? I wrestled one of my trainers, Santana Garrett. She’s an amazing wrestler, so I was beyond nervous. I remember starting to die out toward the end of the match. No amount of conditioning outside of wrestling truly prepares you for being in in-ring shape. It was definitely one of my proudest moments and a match I’ll always remember.

Describe your in-ring persona. Destiny is pretty uncontrollable. Coming from a psych ward, this character is constantly battling between good and evil in her mind and the frustration is brought out in the ring. If you ever want to be shocked watching wrestling, my work as Destiny is something you’ll want to see. I’m known for being unpredictable … but if you see a hand under the ring, a person standing on a U-Haul or a shopping cart full of weapons, just know that’s me getting ready to go crazy.

What companies have you wrestled for? Way too many to name but some notable ones include Atomic Revolutionary Wrestling, Queens of Combat, Fighting Evolution Wrestling and Rise.

Have you held any titles? I’ve held the North Florida FEW Women’s Championship, Bombshells Women’s Championship, the Riot Women’s Championship, the Champ7 Women’s Championship and Platinum Women’s Championship.

Serpentico

King snake indeed! Lucha royalty Serpentico is a fast-rising star in the wrestling game, never ceasing to dazzle with high-flying wizardry. He’s never seen without his frankly terrifying mask, and it’s impossible to tell what side this grappler is on.

What made you want to be a wrestler? I come from a family of wrestlers so I kind of fell into it once I was old enough to understand what my dad and his brothers were doing. I was introduced to wrestling at a really young age … and it’s honestly the only thing I’ve wanted to do for the rest of my life.

What is your persona in the ring? I am a snake, in every sense of the word. I pattern my look, movements, strikes and offense on what I interpret to be snakelike. That even extends to my character in the ring: For generations, wrestling has been a battle between a good (face) guy and a bad (heel) guy. In terms of storytelling, this tried-and-true approach will always work. But it’s also been a staple of wrestling since its inception. I want to take that and turn it on its head. I want there to always be an unease when I wrestle, a sort of unpredictability that comes with being patterned after a snake. Will it strike you? Will it let you be? One will never know. And that’s what I like to portray. Neither “good” nor “bad.” Just me.

What companies have you wrestled for? I’ve been fortunate enough to wrestle for 17 years so the list is extensive, but the most notable ones have been: WWE/NXT, Impact Wrestling, Evolve, Ring of Honor, the Crash, Major League Wrestling.

Who is your dream opponent? I’d be remiss if I didn’t say Rey Mysterio Jr. He’s considered a pioneer for lucha libre-influenced guys like myself. We all think he is the greatest luchador of all time and he has broken down barriers for Latinos and for smaller wrestlers in general. It would definitely be an honor to face him before he eventually retires.

So he and City Commissioner Patty Sheehan worked together to find her a new mate. They bought two male black-necked swans, so Queenie could have her choice of new boyfriend – but then one of her suitors died in July, leaving Queenie and Big Boy, the remaining male swan, in an awkward set-up situation. Then, in a plot twist worthy of a reality show (The Birdchelorette?), a necropsy revealed that the dead swan was actually female. We’re still waiting to see if Queenie and Big Boy end up billing and cooing after all.

BEST TRIBUTE TO ORLANDO ROYALTY Billy Manes Legacy Mural Burton’s Thornton Park, 801 E. Washington St., facebook.com/billymaneslegacymural When Billy Manes – the activist, mayoral candidate and longtime Orlando Weekly writer – passed away in 2017, he took a little bit of the city’s heart with him (and a giant part of ours). But artists Michael Pilato and Yuriy Karabash worked with Billy’s widower, who started a foundation in Billy’s name, to put up a memorial mural in Thornton Park. It eases the pain just a little to know that we can bask in a larger-than-life Billy’s radiance any time we want to, day or night.

Hot N Juicy Crawfish Satisfies Cajun Cravings With classic flavors and spicy twists, this seafood empire embodies comfortable southern dining.

Scottsdale, Arizona.

Big, bold flavors are what New Orleans cuisine is all about, but you don’t have to make a trip out to Louisiana to get a taste. Located on Sand Lake Road, Hot N Juicy Crawfish puts a spin on beloved Cajun flavors that’ll have you feeling like you’re not too far from the French Quarter.

Expect Quality Seafood and Flavor

Before Texas couple Laina Vo and Tim Nguyen opened Hot N Juicy, they grew up eating the seafood delicacy and enjoying food infused with Cajun flavors from the nearby state of Louisiana. “We’ve been eating it our whole life. As travelers and foodies, we’re always open to something new and different,” Vo says. “We love to eat, but our number one favorite food is good Cajun seafood.” As travelers, they recognized that some places around the nation were missing out on the down-and-dirty style of eating this flavorful food, so they decided to open the first Hot N Juicy location in Las Vegas in 2007. While it was risky to take such a gamble in the recession, it’s ultimately paid off with their empire spanning 13 locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, New York, Orlando and Washington D.C. Soon Hot N Juicy’s 14 location will make its home in

“We’ve only opened locations in cities we like to visit ourselves,” Vo says. “We love the energy in Orlando and taking our kids there. There’s a lot of great tourist spots in the area.”.

For the uninitiated, crawfish are softer and more subtle in flavor than shrimp. It also has a slight sweetness that gives it its distinct flavor. While crawfish are certainly a highlight at Hot N Juicy, their seafood selection include shrimp, lobster, mussels and several types of crab. “Our spot is focused on offering quality seafood,” Laina says. “I’m strict about our seafood quality and making sure it’s consistent, and that’s why it is flown in fresh daily.” If you’re new to crawfish, you can start with the “Get Your Feet Wet” combo, which gets you a mix of crawfish, shrimp, andouille sausage, potatoes and corn, before committing to their by-the-pound orders. When it comes to the flavor of the boil for any seafood order, you can find the typical Louisiana and Cajun blends, as well as Lemon Pepper and Garlic Butter –– and of course, their signature Hot N Juicy sauce. No matter your tolerance level, you can also select the right kind of heat for you, from baby spice to extra spicy.

Being able to create your own custom experience here makes it an ideal spot for a family outing, with chicken tender and nugget offering for children who haven’t quite developed a love for seafood yet. “What I love about our restaurants is there is no pretense,” Vo says. “You don’t have to dress up, you eat with your hands and can just throw everything on the table. We want people to not just enjoy our food, but to have a good ole time.” From Locals to Celebrities, Customer Service is Key Besides the food, Vo knows great customer service is essential to any dining experience that keeps patrons happy and coming back. Staying in tune with customer feedback across all Hot N Juicy’s locations is a top priority for her.

been featured on the Travel Channel’s Man V. Food and the Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats. “I think the fact that so many celebrities eat at our restaurants solidifies Hot N Juicy as a household name,” Laina says. “It’s exciting for our customers to come in with their families and possibly see a celebrity enjoying the same meal.” Whether you’re a celebrity or a local, Hot N Juicy aims to give you star treatment and a fun, Cajun-inspired meal you thought you’d only find in New Orleans. Locals should stop in the Orlando spot, located on 7572 W. Sand Lake Road, soon to get their fix of flavor. To see more of what Hot N Juicy Crawfish has to offer, visit hotnjuicycrawfish.com

“I read every Yelp review out there,” Vo says. “I see that most people are excited to come to our locations, and we want to keep it that way.” Part of the excitement around Hot N Juicy is their large celebrity following. From supplying feasts for artists like Usher and T.I. to satisfying pro athletes like NBA player Anthony Davis and former player Grant Hill, Hot N Juicy’s flavors have become an attraction for the stars. Recently, celeb foodie Chrissy Teigan and her musician husband John Legend dined in at their West Hollywood location. The restaurant has also

Construction began in January 2001, making it one of Orlando’s favorite landmarks – its status is kind of a cross between “beloved” and “butt of many jokes.” Activity on the site resumed in July 2018, and amid the signs of life – they even lit up the interior at one point! – Bowers said it would be done in eight to 12 months and they were actively seeking tenants. PSYCH! More than a year later, it’s not even close. Maybe next year.

Easter Bunny throwdown on Orange Avenue

BEST USE OF PUBLIC MONEY

This year’s Easter Sunday saw the bridging of two classic Orlando hallmarks: people in animal costumes and downtown what-the-fuckery. An argument between a homeless man and a woman on South Orange Avenue escalated to the point that punches were thrown, but no one expected a grown human being in an Easter Bunny costume to jump into the fray and start landing his own blows on the aggressive man. Thankfully, footage of the fracas – broken up quickly by OPD with no charges filed – made its way to social media, which means we can incorporate it into our own family Easter traditions.

BEST LOCAL TRAGEDY Demolition of the Orchid Garden and the Ballroom at Church Street 225 S. Garland Ave. There are precious few event spaces in Orlando that aren’t hotel ballrooms, and even fewer with the architectural interest and charm found at the Orchid Garden & Ballroom. (We’re biased; we’ve held our Bite Night and United We Brunch events there for years.) The wroughtiron filigree of the Orchid Garden and the grand stained-glass windows of the Ballroom belie their actual age – Bob Snow opened the venues in the ’80s using architectural salvage from all over the world, not in the 1880s, as you might imagine from their vintage looks. In May, it was announced that both event spaces would close as of Nov. 3, and the Ballroom would be demolished this coming winter to make way for the second tower of SunTrust Plaza at Church Street Station. Neither of the spaces is eligible for historic preservation, so we just have to sit back and watch as the concrete rises.

Central Blvd., thehistorycenter.org Finding the right conversation piece for your interior redecoration projects can be a chore. But just a few weeks ago, the Orange County Regional History Center decided to do some summer cleaning and auction off some display props from old exhibits. The docket included plenty of nods to Florida history and culture, including large alligators, birds, giant hats, a pennyfarthing, decorative Corinthian columns, and even giant Stetson hats. We don’t know who nabbed the Red Lobster sign, but we hope you’re putting it to good use.

BEST “PERMIT? WE DON’T NEED NO STINKING PERMIT” MOMENT Dezer tries to sneak an entire car museum into the dead husk of Artegon without telling anyone 5250 International Drive, dezerlandactionpark.com Real estate development company Dezer wasn’t shy about broadcasting their plans for the former Artegon/Festival Bay Mall property: “Dezerland Action Park” was billed as a one-stop indoor entertainment complex with bowling, laser tag and other activities, along with a bunch of collectible cars from founder Michael Dezer’s private collection. But city officials slapped Dezerland with a stop work order on Feb. 8 after discovering that extensive work had been done on the site without proper permits. The Dezerland website still lists an extremely optimistic opening date of Spring 2019, but we have a feeling they’re going to miss their target by a few more months.

BEST NEW VERSION OF OLAN MILLS Wall Crawl 1016 W. Church St., wallcrawl.com Now that giant department stores like Sears and Kmart – formerly home to Olan Mills photo studios – are crumbling, where’s a family to go for that well-lit, professionally shot yet affordably priced annual portrait? You probably expected us to grouch about Wall Crawl as a monument to millennial narcissism and the erosion of public life in the age of the selfie – or maybe you thought we’d use the G-word regarding the Parramore location. But we choose to see it as a fresh new business that’s employing local artists, while providing an actual service worth paying for. Maybe you’re looking for a place to shoot photos for your own business; maybe you need that family holiday card snapshot, or maybe you are in fact a narcissistic millennial. Who cares? Bring your own avocado toast and have a super fun day out.

We love sitting outside on the spacious patio with a beer and pasteis de bacalao – salt cod fritters – and lingering over fish tacos and bife a portuguesa (filet mignon with fried egg, prosciutto, garlic, mustard and a beer demi-glace). The line that used to steadily queue outside the truck window has transferred to the host stand, but we’re still happy to stand in it all the same.

BEST COCKTAILS FOR FOODIES The Robinson Cocktail Room 63 E. Pine St., therobinsonroom.com Nightspots come and go downtown, but this latest romper room from the Team Market Group (also behind Celine and Mathers Social Gathering) – let’s just say it lives fast, and if it dies young, it’ll leave a very pretty corpse. A pre-opening Instagram mood board dished out plenty of Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and that Jean-Paul Goude photo, so the OTT design flourishes were no surprise when doors were finally unlocked. What was a surprise was the intense attention paid to the ingredients used to build the drinks on the delightful menu: the clarified strawberry and lime in the Just to Be Clear, the sous-vide Fresno chiles in the Mr. Fresident, the grapefruit oil and peppercorn tincture in the Fever Dream; all are produced in-house in “the lab.” Foodies not inclined to party with the beautiful people would do well to hit the cocktail hour between 5 and 8 p.m. and savor the flavors.

The movie-set decor is steeped in postwar/midcentury Japanese nostalgia, and it’s hard not to be dazzled by it all.

Having a concentration of restaurants that aren’t just good but each distinctive, with their own qualities and specialties, has been a boon to the ’hood. Beyond the well-known Mexican and Tex-Mex fare at neighborhood blockbuster La Fiesta, the very underrated Los Generales offers authentic country Mexican cuisine with Mayan flair – while Cilantro’s serves up bright, street-style Mexican specialties and Tamale Co. slings some of the best stuffed masa in the city. All this within steps of each other makes this intersection our best high-value destination for Mexican satisfaction.

BEST UNEXPECTED ALGORITHM RESULT Little-known Mee Thai named one of Yelp’s “Best 100 Places to Eat in the U.S.” Mee Thai, 1200 Lee Road, facebook.com/meethaiorlando The internet is weird. Sometimes it gives us snort-laugh-inducing memes like those 30-50 feral hogs running into our yard within 3-5 minutes while our small kids play; sometimes it gives us the alt-right and incels. But sometimes its algorithms open our eyes to things we’ve missed, like the hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant Mee Thai on Lee Road. Despite being overlooked by most foodies in the area – we get it; Lee Road is not exactly known for being a culinary hotspot (especially now that the Taco Bell is no longer partnered with Long John Silver’s) – enough people had enough good things to say about the place on Yelp that it earned the No. 24 spot on the website’s national list of the best places to eat in 2019. We’ve since taken their advice, and we can tell you that the laab and papaya salad are no joke.

BEST BLINK AND YOU MISSED IT PIZZA JOINT Recess Pizza recesspizza.com

The ill-fated oven in the back corner of Orange County Brewers chewed up and spat out more than a couple of munchie-vending contenders, but the last one standing barely had time to get its feet under it before the brewery closed and moved to Lake Mary. Recess Pizza was a venture by Eliot Hillis of Orlando Meats with a brawny and bravura menu to match our meaty expectations. In fact, pies like the Kya (pork belly, Greek cheese, corn, chimichurri, crema), the Hayley (Flamin’ Hot Cheetos sausage, cheddar, lime relish, blue cheese) and the Brekkie Za (red sauce, mozzarella, sausage, bacon, pickled onion, egg) didn’t just meet expectations, high as they were – they smashed any kind of beliefs we had about pizza. If there’s any justice (and there is), they’ll be back (and they will).

BEST NEW THEME PARK TREAT Boozy Dole Whips at Wine Bar George Disney Springs, Lake Buena Vista, winebargeorge.com Last year, rum in your Dole Whip was the level-up no one could stop talking about, but damned if the cult-favorite frozen pineapple dessert didn’t outdo itself this year. In March, Wine Bar George at Disney Springs developed two new boozy versions of the treat: the Dole Whip mimosa and the Dole Whip Frozcato, followed in June by the Dole Whip Frozcato Sugar Cookie Sandwich. The mimosa mixes pineapple juice, Moscato and prosecco; the Frozcato combines Moscato, vodka and pineapple in a frozen slushy; and the Sugar Cookie Sandwich smushes Frozcato between two rosé wine-infused sugar cookies. Word is they’re only available through Labor Day, though, so don’t nap.

Interpol at Hard Rock Live May 11, 2019 As post-punk stars Interpol prepared to take the stage at the Hard Rock Live for a long-awaited Orlando return, the anticipation in the packed house was palpable. Here was a band that had soundtracked a good portion of the audience’s highest highs and lowest lows for nearly two decades, from the middle-aged white guy in the tour T-shirt to the 20-something daughter of immigrants with the dangerously large hoop earrings. Watching the legendary band on the Hard Rock’s stage was an out-of-body experience for us; they were as exact as they were hypnotic, carrying us away to places deeply familiar and completely unknown. The audience, as one, got lost and then found in the band’s alluringly dark sound.

BEST LOCAL CASSETTE It’s a tie! The Nightmare, Nightmare World, and Faust, Fila Invisible Audio, invisibleaudio.bandcamp.com; Illuminated Paths, illuminatedpaths.bandcamp.com We couldn’t settle on just one! On the one hand, there’s the debut solo outing from Faust (of young, mod-experimental hip-hop duo OhTwo). Very distinct from the eclectic and kinetic anthems that OhTwo effortlessly deal in, Fila is an EP of downtempo meditations and afterparty comedowns. The pacing is languid and unhurried, and Faust’s delivery is intricate as always. On the other hand, there’s the unhinged d-beat chaos of the Nightmare’s Nightmare World. This five-song whirlwind of a mini-album clocks in at around seven minutes, but trust us, this group more than gets their point across. It’s the blown-out, angry, anguished punk that your parents and assorted clergy warned you about.

BEST LOSING MY RELIGION Church of United Ministry closes June 28, 2019 The second-floor space at the corner of Mills and Colonial was a bastion of Orlando DIY weirdness and excellence for several years (former incarnations included Anime Fun Shop and A-Space). But late June saw the final event, an all-star local showcase and dance party that included TV Dinner and Bacon Grease. Under musician and arch-conceptualist Jason Kimmins’ quasi-religious branding, C.U.M. Worship repped the Good Word and hosted fashion shows, karaoke nights, touring bands, local music, DJ nights and more. The closing of this DIY bastion was very much the end of an era for Mills 50.

BEST MIDLIFE CRISIS Rich Evans creating Mind Meld and Mayhem on Mills In most cases, the gradual encroachment of middle age causes a man to do foolish things (sports car, motorcycle, ever-present backwards baseball cap), but luckily for Orlando, Total Punk headman/Golden Pelicans drummer Rich Evans, channeled his existential ennui into two honest-to-god exciting new ventures. First, the personal Mind Meld label, where Evans invites artists he loves to record whatever they want and he releases it on vinyl, no questions asked. The second and more bombastic: Mayhem on Mills, a punk-influenced wrestling fed that embraces all the gonzo and wigged-out elements of pro wrestling, with a solid core of area grapplers giving it their all. And the crowds get bigger with every event.

BEST LOCAL ALBUM The Sh-Booms, The Blurred Odyssey theshbooms.com Spanning most of this decade, the ascent of these Orlando garage-soul saviors has been long and winding. But with the spring release of this sweltering opus on hot Miami label Limited Fanfare, it seems their career has finally achieved a certified breakthrough. A model of strut, gut and soul, the album – by far their most crystallized and whopping work yet – has drawn tons of glowing press and even garnered a “Coolest Song in the World” shout on Little Steven’s Underground Garage. It’s been a welcome national splash that’s validated something we’ve known around here for years: The Sh-Booms are ready for the world.

BEST GOODBYE/HELLO/GOODBYE Obliterati’s “final” show May 17, 2019

Are they? Aren’t they? Orlando underground stalwarts and freak-rock heroes Obliterati, a band that included celebrated Orlando oddballs Nadeem Khan, Tony Christy, Lisa Bugayong, Sarah Morrison, Steven Garnett and Jim Ivy, decided to finally call it quits. This put an end to a project that was a through-line of several decades of underground music activity in the City Beautiful, and they said goodbye in style, in front of a packed house of scene lifers at Will’s Pub – the band ran through everything they had AND an ad hoc set of Bad Afro Experience covers. It was a celebration shorn of sappy sentimentality and a fitting endpoint for the greatest non-career act in Orlando music.

BEST SUNROOM WHERE YOU CAN’T SEE THE SUN The Sunroom 1319 N. Mills Ave., instagram.com/sunroom____ The new sister bar to the Guesthouse, right next door and masterminded by the same groovy team, looks on Instagram like an ideal spot to while away a sunny afternoon sipping session cocktails: all pale terrazzo and light woodwork flooded with rays and stuffed with houseplants. Ironically, though, the bar’s hours are 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday, meaning the only time we’ll get to lounge in that sunbeam is in our dreams – until and unless they extend their hours. (Pretty please?)

As an artist under the name Q-Burns Abstract Message, a music biz figure and a label boss, Michael Donaldson is an all-around Orlando music legend. Unfortunately, that last hat has been gathering mad dust since he discontinued releases on the longrunning Eighth Dimension Records in 2012. Then, all of a sudden, Donaldson got back into the label business and launched 8D Industries last October. Since then, the cerebral imprint has released a handful of records by acts like Kansas City electro-psych band Monta at Odds, Terry Grant’s cinematic ambient act More Ghost Than Man, electronic soundscaper San Mateo and, happily for us, Q-Burns himself. With more releases already slated for fall, Donaldson’s needle has found its groove again. It’s a welcome return.

At first glance, throwing a big house-music party at the glossy, moto-centric Ace Cafe might seem odd. But old bass-heads and ravers will spot the sly nod to local music history because the Ace is sited in the historic building that was the original site of the Edge, the era-defining dance club that was ground zero for the legendary 1990s EDM scene that gave Orlando international cachet. With a prime throwback lineup that included the Crystal Method, K5, Kelly Reverb, DJ Who, Magic Mike, AK1200, Andy Hughes, Stylus and the late, great D-Xtreme, bass promoter Future Sound of Breaks essentially pulled off an Edge reunion. And now that FSOB honcho Glyn S. Morgan is an official event consultant with Ace, expect more ass-shaking parties there.

BEST DID A SHOE JUST FLY BY MY HEAD? Le Trash Can’s meltdown at Grumpy’s Underground Lounge April 19, 2019 It had been an intense tour that included a triumphant set at New York’s Ende Tymes but also the disappearance of his tourmate, so by the time Le Trash Can’s Manu Armida arrived in the City Beautiful, the Mexican noise ambassador was all raw nerves. In an intense and brief set, Armida rampaged all over Grumpy’s, front to back. The final glorious flame-out saw Armida throwing his shoes, socks and cap into the audience, then climbing the support beam holding the PA where he suspended himself, dangling like a rag doll in midair, as the distortion and screech slowly and elegantly subsided. It was one of the most eye-popping things we’ve seen this year.

BEST BRUSH WITH OSCAR FAME Junior Nyong’o at Orlando Shakes Feb. 6-March 24, 2019 For someone who is only 24 years old, Junior Nyong’o has already shouldered a remarkable range of roles: scholar, soccer player, political scion, international social media sensation, sibling to a superstar. But in February 2019, he was most excited to talk about his newest title, “working actor,” as he made his professional stage debut as the titular prince in Orlando Shakes’ production of Hamlet. Based on reactions to his performance, we titled this award quite intentionally – yes, the Oscar-winning Lupita is his sister, but we are fairly sure that the Orlando Shakes stage gave birth to another award-winning acting career.

You can use your card to check out more than books (and ebooks, and audiobooks) – you can get free access to Lynda.com technology classes, stream hard-to-find art films and documentaries on Kanopy, even use the Mango language learning app, all for free. And now OCLS has outdone themselves with a new program called the Local Wanderer. It’s a massive multipartner gateway to museums, plays, concerts, even sporting events – and it’s all free. You can reserve tickets to a show at Hard Rock Live or get free admission to the Morse Museum, gratis. The culture pass program is intended to eliminate financial barriers preventing people from experiencing local arts culture, providing Orange County families a means of entry to the world-class institutions that call Central Florida home. And it makes us damn proud of our library system.

BEST WE TOLD YOU SO Kristen Arnett conquers the literary world kristenarnett.virb.com

Kristen Arnett – our longtime pick for funniest local librarian on Twitter, and conductor of our favorite (maybe only) book release party in a 7-Eleven – released her debut novel, Mostly Dead Things (Tin House Books), in June of this year. The response to the novel – about a Florida lesbian taking over her family’s taxidermy business after her father’s suicide – has been nothing short of stellar. It’s become a New York Times bestseller, been featured on summer reading lists in media outlets from Entertainment Weekly to Vanity Fair, and even got Arnett invited to appear on NPR and on PBS’ Amanpour & Co. Arnett recently tweeted about signing a “bigass writing contract” in her car in front of her childhood home and was retweeted by none other than (presumable fan) Stephen Goddamn King. Arnett’s charmingly understated response: “oh man thank you buddy.” See, we told you so.

BEST LOCAL ZINE Hawt & Popular facebook.com/hawtandpopular Hawt & Popular is one of the most soul-stirring and refreshing new zines on the scene, so you won’t be needing any more Biore warming clay masks once you scope these pages. Founder Thomas Mack lassoes various local players to make each issue of a vibrant tome that’s part fanzine, part anthology, part humor mag, all community. H&P recently threw a party to celebrate the release of their third issue, a raucous affair featuring Miami’s Las Nubes and local comedian Heather Shaw hosting. We can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves next.

BEST DINNER THEATER Lydia Lunch at Maxine’s on Shine Feb. 18, 2019 “Let me tell you about toxic femininity!” sneered Lydia Lunch as she unleashed her equalparts-malevolent-and-titillating Verbal Burlesque performance on a dinnertime crowd at the intimate Maxine’s. What followed was an incredible, confrontational, artful stream-ofconsciousness rant from one of the most important figures in U.S. punk and No Wave, paired improbably with custom cocktails and dinner specials for the night. The personal and the political collided on this stage like a stick shift and a groin in J.G. Ballard’s Crash, and of course, Lunch got up close and very personal with those seated closest to her. Choke it down, worms.

PHOTO COURTESY SIGNING SHADOWS

BEST FULL-BODY COMMUNICATION Signing Shadows facebook.com/signingshadows It’s an admirable move when local theater companies include ASL interpreters at their shows so Deaf and hard of hearing audiences can enjoy them, too. But Signing Shadows is, as they say, a whole ’nother thing. They’re capable of providing the traditional off-to-the-side sign-language interpretation you may have seen before, but where they excel is in “shadow interpretations”: Their interpreters perform right alongside the actors onstage, providing a fully accessible and comprehensive communication of the role rather than a sort of ASL version of closed captioning. Their dedication to their craft is awesome, in both the currently popular and the original connotations of that word, and they thoroughly deserve to be recognized as one of the best things in Orlando.

BEST SNEAKING CULTURE INTO THE SUBCULTURE Alterity.co alterityco.org

Alterity.co is a 17-member chamber orchestra devoted to playing new music by living composers. Oh, and no big deal, but they’re also “striving to build a more thoughtful, open and diverse society through contemporary classical music.” So, you know, #goals. Founded by Natalie Grata and Beatriz Ramirez, both young woodwind-playing women, Alterity has presented more than a dozen concerts, become Timucua’s first ensemble-in-residence, commissioned four new compositions, and shown hundreds of locals what classical music can be, if you drop your preconceived notions. And the spark of an idea took flame at a show at Will’s Pub, a genesis story that’s reflected in the youth of not just the composers whose work they interpret, but audiences as well. They bit off a lot when they launched this project, and they’re clearly hungry for more. As are we.

When Alchemy began the slow process of consciously uncoupling with its longtime location in 2018, stakes were high to find a building just as special as that little College Park space. Inspiration struck in the form of a long-empty building on Bumby, and the team applied for and received an adaptive reuse grant from the city of Orlando. The sustainable practice of adaptive reuse recycles existing building stock rather than continuing the expensive cycle of tearing down old buildings and putting up new ones – which wastes both time and resources. Gabriela Othon Lothrop, who was involved with the adaptive reuse renovation of East End Market, spearheaded the Alchemy project. The space is stunningly modern, yet retains its low-slung, square-cornered midcentury vibe. It’s so refreshing to see Orlando take yet another step toward sustainability.

BEST WAY TO WAKE UP WITH PERFECT EYEBROWS EVERY DAY Oh La La Brow Bar 2345 E. Michigan St., ohlalabrowbar.com Stop what you’re doing right now and make an appointment to get your eyebrows microbladed by Natasha, who owns Oh La La Brow Bar in SoDo. It’ll be the best investment you make in your face all year, and lasts about that long. She’ll make sure your arches fall somewhere between “natural” and “Kardashian,” which, according to the artist, is the most popular beauty spectrum. Microbladed brows never need filling or retouching (unless you want to), and the peace of mind knowing that your brows will be perfect every time the alarm goes off will save you many, many minutes over the course of your mornings.

Even better, it’s in a bar (Celine, to be exact), so not only are you fully air-conditioned while perusing handmade jewelry, small-batch screenprints, whimsical ceramics, vintage clothing and the like, you can do it with breakfast cocktail in hand.

BEST NEW EXAMPLE OF THE EAST ON WEST COLONIAL Lotte Plaza Market 3191 W. Colonial Drive, lotteplaza.com

The Pine Hills area is already home to one of the best hidden treasures for fans of Asian cuisine – the Chinatown Plaza near Kirkman Road – but this year saw the opening of a new branch of Lotte Plaza Market, a Maryland-based Asian grocery store chain that may or may not be owned by the Korean multinational conglomerate Lotte Corporation. In addition to offering a bright, modern take on the international grocery store, Lotte Plaza Market also features a food court that lets you skip all of the hard work in your own kitchen and shop for freshly made Korean, Japanese and Chinese fare – which is great because even we, Publix’s biggest suck-ups, get tired of eating nothing but Pub subs all the time.

BEST SIGN YOU CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT FUNKO POPS Spooky Empire riot over Elvira figure Oct. 26, 2018 Don’t get us wrong, we applaud ferocious fandom in most, if not all, cases – but this was nextlevel. Spooky Empire organizers at last autumn’s con (headlined by the Mistress of the Dark herself) starting running low on their exclusive Elvira Pops on Friday night, and collectors’ fists started a-flying. In summary: plastic Elvira causes a bunch of fights; actual Elvira, a mere door and hallway away (and for whom we would not hesitate to tussle) merits no altercations whatsoever. Indeed, the mood in her line was downright convivial. Priorities, everyone!

Lucerne Circle, thewellbornhotel.com As Orlando’s cultural attractions – as opposed to theme park attractions – rise in the national consciousness, discerning visitors face a choice. They read that article about “the other Orlando” in the New York Times, sure, but let’s be real: They’re not traveling all the way here and skipping Disney and Universal. (Especially the younger parents: They didn’t get those Harry Potter tattoos to come to Orlando and not drink boozy butterbeers.) Finding accommodations that are not only roughly equidistant between the Ravenous Pig and Voodoo Doughnut, but sufficiently boutique-y to please millennial/Gen-Z travelers is now as easy as booking at the Wellborn, the freshly redesigned former Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. There’s decent coffee, a mobile bar, clawfoot tubs in every room and more than enough eye candy to keep your Instagram feed replete.

The Alliance of American Football – an attempt to create an NFL offseason alternative for football fans – was plagued with problems from its inception in February 2019: Funding shortfalls, contract disputes and low attendance numbers hurt the league’s viability. Shoot, the Orlando Apollos weren’t even able to secure the proper workers’ compensation insurance in Florida, resulting in the whole team having to hold practices in Georgia. So no one was that surprised in April when the league announced that it was folding before the championship game of their one and only season could happen. The only bright side is that the Apollos – under the direction of famed former UF coach Steve Spurrier – ended the season with a best-in-league win-loss record of 7-1. Maybe the end of the league was for the best, though; we all know what happens to winning teams once Orlando fans latch onto them.

BEST PLACE TO SEE STARS Orlando Pride games orlandocitysc.com/pride There are plenty of reasons to go watch the Orlando Pride play soccer. They fall down less, play equally as hard (next step: equal pay!) and there’s rarely a line for beer or the bathroom. Need more than that? OK, how about four major World Cup stars, including Alex Morgan, 2019’s winner of ESPN’s Best Female Athlete. Alongside Morgan, you’ll see fellow U.S. Women’s National Team colleagues Ali Krieger and her fiancée, goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris. The three of them won it all in France this summer on the USWNT. Their Brazilian teammate, the forward Marta, holds the record for most goals scored at any FIFA World Cup tournaments with 17, and is the first soccer player ever to score in five World Cup competitions. Best of all, since attendance is generally lower than it is for the mens’ games and feels more intimate, the players are more likely to stick around after the match to sign autographs and fist-bump fans.

BEST ADVERTISEMENT FOR A RESORT CHAIN WE’VE NEVER HEARD OF Exploria Stadium 655 W. Church St., orlandocitysc.com/stadium

Orlando City Soccer Club’s stadium – formerly known as Orlando City Stadium – has provided a home for both men’s and women’s soccer teams and helped revitalize the West Church Street neighborhood where it’s located. But on June 4, we were all surprised to learn that the naming rights had been sold to Exploria Resorts, which immediately had us asking: “Who?” The vacation club and timeshare company operates properties in four different states, including five properties in Florida, and apparently their status as a homegrown Central Florida company was a big factor in awarding them the naming rights. Exploria CEO and president Thomas Morris was aware of his company’s dark horse status, stating in the official press release, “Exploria is not a household name and our goal all along was to provide some grand credibility.”

BEST WORST KEPT SECRET IN THEME PARKS Epic Universe blog.universalorlando.com/whats-new When Universal announced on Aug. 1 that it’s building a third theme park a few miles away from its existing property, the only thing we really learned about the park was its weirdly redundant name: Universal’s Epic Universe. That’s because theme park insiders and permit-watchers had already scraped up plenty of rumors about the park, such as possible intellectual properties to be used – a Nintendo-themed area seems all but confirmed – as well as the location of the site – hard to hide the fact that they’d already started clearing land on the 750-acre site. Concept art has continued to fuel the rumor mill, along with the suggestion that Epic Universe will use a mixture of ticketed areas and open-to-the-public retail space.

It’s the tallest StarFlyer in the world (we’re supposed to be proud of that, I suppose), and caps off the attractions at the newly renamed (yet again!)

Widely accepted as one of the best players of his generation, the Real Madrid and A.C. Milan player made his way to the City Beautiful to grace us with his beautiful game. But last year, the Brazilian maestro retired, leaving a fame vacuum on the field. We needed a new “designated player,” as MLS calls their stars (who earn far more than the league’s salary cap). Enter Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha, better known to soccer aficionados as Nani. (Sensing a trend here?) Our No. 17, formerly of Manchester United, has made his mark as a playmaker and goal scorer, drawing crowds to see his fancy footwork and on-field theatrics week after week.

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK

148

It’s a night of glittering stars and outrageous sights and sounds … No, we’re not talking about our Best of Orlando Party, though that is happening the very same night as this haute rock showcase. We’re talking about twin returns. First, Seattle’s Scott Yoder brings his darkling, overdriven glam rock back to the City Beautiful. Each time we’ve seen him here, Yoder has even more razzle and dazzle, so who knows what’s going to happen this time. Second, there’s the triumphant return of the Spoon Dogs from their East Coast tour. And since they inspired hysteria at Will’s at their tour kickoff show, we expect more of the same. Support comes from Tampa’s Glove (who now count RV’s Justin Burns in their ranks) and the Dancing Bones. – Matthew Moyer with the Spoon Dogs, Glove, the Dancing Bones | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N.

Love Your Shorts Film Festival Summer Rewind FILM

“Don’t want no short people,” Randy Newman once sang. In Sanford, that sentiment certainly doesn’t extend to short films, which are again in demand as the town celebrates the Love Your Shorts Film Festival Summer Rewind. Held at the historic Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, the program includes 10 films selected from among the best of the ninth annual festival, which took place in February. Every festival genre will be featured – drama, comedy, sci-fi/horror, animation, documentary and “E for Everyone” – with almost half the movies made by Florida filmmakers. Among those Sunshine State selections are Marcus by Fort Lauderdale’s J.R. Poli (the winner of the February festival), Time Was by Orlando’s John VonMutius, Rebooted by Sarasota’s Sagar Arun and Rachel Kral, and Game Changer by Sarasota’s Aviv Mano. It’s a refreshing palate cleanser in advance of September’s Central Florida Film Festival (CenFlo) and Global Peace Film Festival. – Cameron Meier 8 p.m. | Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, 201 S.

Getting Away With It MUSIC

Of all the nightlife action on Mills Avenue, one of the freshest new nights is pure retro. That’s because DJ Smilin’ Dan’s weekly Friday night conversion of Mills 50 wax purveyor Remix Record Shop into a music video bar is a deep dive back into some of the most defining and seminal chapters of classic alternative rock (circa 1980-1994). Like a music history book sprung to life, Smilin’ Dan’s experienced audiovisual sets capture the underground zeitgeist in all its brilliant sound and vision with projected music videos and obscure cuts. This week, however, is extra special since Dan will spin with a legendary guest: DJ Dave Cannalte. One of the most credentialed pioneers of the Orlando club scene, Cannalte’s illustrious CV stretches all the way back to the SPIT days. So go get all 120 Minutes when these two lifers plumb the crates, go full immersion and resurrect legends. – Bao Le-Huu with DJs Smilin’ Dan and Dave Cannalte | 9 p.m. | Remix Record Shop, 1213 N. Mills Ave. | remixrecordshop.com | free

Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! FILM

Panic Underground pays tribute to its roots and provides a valuable history lesson this Friday with a one-night-only screening of the Industrial Accident documentary on beyond-influential Chicago label Wax Trax Records. This is the story of a record store-turned-tastemaking imprint that brought the edgy and discordant sounds of electronic and industrial music to the American mainstream. You have Wax Trax to thank for getting the word out on cutting-edge heavies like Ministry (and their legion of side projects), KMFDM, Front 242, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Die Warzau and countless others. Afterward, the resident DJs will do a deep dive into Wax Trax, um, wax so you can apply everything you learned earlier in the evening on the dance floor. – MM 9 p.m. | Stonewall, 741 W.

MUSIC

COMEDY

Orlando women in your mid-30s: It’s time to unite! We must take to the streets to welcome back our hometown boy-band heroes, the Backstreet Boys. Nick, AJ, Brian, Kevin and Howie have returned. Actually, they never left: Unlike some boy bands, the Backstreet Boys stayed together for 23 years and counting. After the smashing success of their first album and their hit-filled follow-up, Millennium, they went on to release five more albums. These albums weren’t exactly fan favorites, but BSB never stopped trying. Their latest release, DNA, is a welcome addition that brings the boys into the modern age without losing their a cappella charm. The comeback lead single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” received a Grammy nomination. The boys are also charting on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time in 12 years. Does it matter that their current success might be tied to a corporate partnership with the controversial genetic testing company 23andMe? We’re not going to busy ourselves with such concerns. Nostalgia is a hell of a drug, and we’re high as a kite. Plus, they still dance. Now THAT’S commitment. – Abby Stassen

Although he’s known just as much for his personal life as he is for his work on Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson deserves some credit for giving that show a shot in the arm. The 25-year-old is the first SNL cast member born in the 1990s, and has shown a generational tendency toward being very open about his life – including his struggles with Crohn’s disease and mental illness. That openness has gotten him into trouble a few times, such as when he compared being an R. Kelly fan to being a supporter of the Catholic Church. Or when he made fun of Texas congressman Dan Crenshaw’s eyepatch, received after losing his eye while serving as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. (Don’t get us wrong: Crenshaw’s still a creep who deserves to be made fun of, but not for his eyepatch.) Davidson appears at UCF’s Addition Financial Arena this week during SNL’s off-season as the kick-off event for UCF’s Pegasus Palooza. – Thaddeus McCollum

Art After Dark The Downtown Arts District sponsors an opportunity for artists and art lovers to rub elbows at CityArts this week.

Producers from all over Central Florida, like Gwadcip$, Loka, Nubes and the refreshingly named Plain Ol’ Zach (not actually named Zach, bee-tee-dubs) create a chill environment for the evening. And if you’ve been craving a one-stop shop for underground beat tapes, you only have yourself to blame if you skip over the merch table at this free show. 9 p.m. Saturday; Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave.; $5; willspub.org.

B Y DA N S AVAG E

My fiancé and I have been in a relationship for 11 years. His best friend is one of his exes, and that has always bothered me. What do I do? Needing Guidance After Getting Engaged You could make up your mind to get over it, NGAGE. Or you could threaten to break off the engagement unless your fiancé cuts his best friend out of his life. That would be an asshole move – an emotionally manipulative asshole power move. But, hey, you wouldn’t be the first person to wait for the moment of maximum leverage before telling your partner that, despite what you led them to believe (or allowed them to assume), they are going to have to choose between their best friend(s) and the person they’re about to marry or just married. Fair warning: If you issue that ultimatum and your fiancé (or husband) writes in and asks me what to do, I’m going to tell him to leave you. I’m a 58-year-old happily married gay man, and I have a well-hidden kink that I’ve had since childhood: I get off on destructive, city-smashing giants – think of Godzilla as a muscular man smashing things with his dick. Since this is impossible to realize, I rely on drawings and other images. After Tumblr removed the adult content, I found my way to newer websites. Some featured mangastyle drawings of giant prepubescent boys. I’ve NEVER experienced any attraction to children, but these cartoons are a turn-on. Does lusting after cartoon images of boys make me a pedophile? Freaky Erotic Art Requires Serious Self-Scrutiny If you aren’t sexually attracted to children, FEARSSS, you aren’t a pedophile. Pedophilia is not something a non-pedophile drifts into after viewing a little squicky manga. Pedophilia, according to the best and most current research, is a hardwired sexual orientation – one that can never be acted on for moral and ethical reasons. That said, I would urge you to avoid viewing or downloading this stuff. It’s illegal in the United States (and lots of other places) to possess drawings or computer-generated images of children that depict “a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct,” per federal law. I don’t know whether your local prosecutor would consider viewing drawings of giant prepubescent boys smashing buildings with their dicks as a criminal offense, but I’m sure you don’t want to find out. Avoid those websites. I understand the pleasure received by the “suckee,” but I need help understanding what benefit or pleasure the “sucker” derives from the exchange. Is it the taste of come? Confusion Over Cocky Knobblers

160

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● AUG. 21-27, 2019 ● orlandoweekly.com

We do it for the glory, COCK, and that warm feeling that comes over us when we can look up and say, “Emission accomplished.” Where can a gal go to find reluctant/ nonconsensual porn that isn’t overly rapey? I really love power play (think “naughty secretary gets punished”) – but when I look for reluctant/nonconsensual porn, I often come across male-perspective rape fantasies. I’d love to wank to a video or story about a woman reluctantly enjoying herself while her aggressor fucks her up the ass, but every search is fraught with the perils of finding something truly rapey. And that just makes me feel sad and icky. I’m willing to spend money if I trust the source. I just don’t know where to look! Is the issue with my keywords? Help! Really Enjoys Specific Pornographic E-Content, Thanks “This is one of the things people don’t understand about ethical and feminist porn – it’s not just soft lighting and sweet lovemaking,” says Tristan Taormino, the feminist author, sex educator, podcaster and porn director (tristantaormino.com). “Ethical and feminist porn can also have an edge and feature power play, so long as there’s consent. My series ‘Rough Sex,’ which has three volumes, is all about real women’s kink fantasies, and there will be something in there for RESPECT (you can find it on gamelink.com). In addition, I recommend bellesa.co, where she can use the search term ‘rough,’ and xconfessions.com, where she should search for ‘BDSM.’” I’ve written before to ask if there is a newspaper or online publication that translates Savage Love into Spanish. If there is, I can’t find it. I can hardly believe no one does this. Can you give me a simple answer, please? Something’s Lost In Translation Simple answers are my specialty, SLIT. As far as I know, my column isn’t translated into Spanish. But it can be read in Italian in Internazionale (internazionale.it), the weekly Italian newsmagazine. I have to give a shout-out to Matteo Colombo, who does an amazing job of translating my slang-laden, neologism-packed column into Italian every week! Thanks, Matteo! I’m a 57-year-old man, and I have been in a relationship for 10 months. I have some erection problems that are helped by ED meds. The issue is I haven’t told my girlfriend I’m taking them. I take a pill when we are together “just in case,” but this is costly and the resulting lack of spontaneity makes me anxious. Also, I feel like I’m holding on to this secret. Please Send Advice

“QUICKIES”

Call your girlfriend. It’s time you had the talk. Give her your reasons. Tell her it’s not her fault – and, really, it’s not her fault, nor yours. Men don’t take boner pills because they aren’t attracted to (or horny for) their partners, as some fear. The reality is quite the opposite: Horny men take ED meds. She may need to hear it a few times before it sinks in, PSA, but you have nothing to be ashamed of. If she enjoys the sex, she should be as grateful for these meds as you are – and she shouldn’t want you to waste them any more than you do. I’m a bi guy in my late 20s. I date women and occasionally hook up with guys. In between, I have toys. My question has to do with something that happens when I’m using a dildo and stimulating my prostate: During intense stimulation … I pee (I think)? My confusion lies in the fact that what comes out is clear and doesn’t smell like urine. I know there’s a debate about female squirting and whether it’s urine, but I’m still very confused. But is this normal for a man? Should I worry? Leaking Everywhere And Knowing It’s Not Good Your dildo isn’t just stimulating your prostate gland, which produces the milky fluid that comes flying out of your cock when you ejaculate, but your Cowper’s glands as well. The Cowper’s glands are located just under your prostate, and they produce a clear fluid, aka “pre-come,” that basically flushes out your urethra during arousal. Urine is acidic, and acids can harm sperm cells. So precome neutralizes whatever acids might be lurking in your urethra – basically, pre-come makes sure your urethra is a safe space for your sperm cells. Some men produce very little pre-come; some men produce buckets of it, and some men produce more under particular circumstances. Don’t worry, LEAKING, just enjoy.
