IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Deonka Deidra Drayton Her friends knew her as “Zeus.” Deonka Deidra Drayton, 32, was a largerthan-life personality known for her dreadlocks, snapback hats, jokes and the love she gave to those she cared for, says her friend Lexington Martinez. He met her almost four years ago at the gay nightclub Pulse, and ever since then, Drayton called him her “Puerto Rican model boyfriend.” “Whenever I needed anything, I would just contact her,” he says. “One time, my car broke down and she came to pick me up, even though she didn’t have a car. Like, she borrowed a friend’s car to save me.” Originally from South Carolina, Drayton was known as “Dee Dee” to her family. She had struggled through life but was hustling

to make it better for herself and her young son, whom she co-parented with the child’s mother, Emmy Addison, Martinez says. Drayton was working at Pulse during the early morning hours of June 12 when a mass shooting started at the club. Drayton and 48 other people died in the massacre. Martinez says he was supposed to be there that night with a group of friends but decided to stay home. He remembers his friend as an amazing person who gave the best hugs. “She used to literally just pick me up and swing me around,” he says. “Her heart was so pure. She was trying to better herself, but she just didn’t get a chance to finish that. I miss her smile and I miss her laugh.” Her father, Shepherd Drayton, told the Orlando Sentinel his daughter may not have had a perfect life, but “we loved her through all her ups and downs.” In a post on BlackLesbianLoveLab.com, her former partner Emmy Addison says she and Drayton had booked a cruise for September to talk about getting back together. “She was a great parent to our son and they loved each other so much,” Addison wrote. “She always made sure our son never needed for anything. … Her heart was truly whole. When she loved, she loved hard and just like anybody walking this earth, she just wanted to live happy with no worries.” – Monivette Cordeiro

Christina Grimmie’s family sues Orlando venue over singer’s death:

Florida wildlife officials will allow Lakeland resident Mary Thorn to keep her potty-trained, clothes-wearing, ATV-riding pet alligator, aptly named Rambo. The agency stepped in earlier this year after new state regulations were passed requiring gators of a certain length to live on at least 2.5 acres of land. State officials will let the 6-foot-long reptile stay with Thorn on the condition that he makes no more public appearances. Family members of victims killed in the mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse are suing the web companies for helping to radicalize the Orlando shooter by allegedly providing “material support” to the terrorist group ISIS. The lawsuit (filed by the relatives of Tevin Crosby, Javier Jorge-Reyes and Juan Ramon Guerrero) argues the platforms provided ISIS with infrastructure to spread extremist views to new recruits, raise money and earn ad revenue, leading to its explosive growth. ISIS said it was responsible for the attack after Omar Mateen, 29, pledged allegiance to the group during the shooting. Later, an investigation found Mateen did not belong to the organization, but was influenced by them.

The family of Christina Grimmie, the singer who was killed by a shooter after a concert at the Plaza Live, is suing promoter AEG Live and the venue owner, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza Foundation. The Grimmie family argues the venue “failed to take adequate security measures to ensure the safety of the performers and the attendees at the concert venue.” The night of June 10, the suit says only “superficial bag checks” were performed, which may have allowed the gunman, Kevin Loibl, to sneak in two handguns, ammunition and a knife.

Orlando activists call on FedEx to end discounts for NRA members: Gun reform activists in Orlando were joined by advocates across the country last week to protest FedEx for giving discounts to National Rifle Association members on shipping. Activists argue the FedEx discount and other business benefits given to NRA members enable the gun lobby to push for pro-gun legislation. In the Florida Legislature, several pro-gun bills have been filed, including legislation to allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to openly carry guns in public, and to allow license holders to carry guns in airport passenger terminals, on college campuses, at elementary and secondary schools, and to government meetings. mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

3. Restore my faith in humanity Given my previous resolution, this might sound incongruous. But here goes: The election shook me. It eroded my faith in America and the goodness of its people. We elected a racist, misogynist braggart, an avaricious know-nothing con artist who has boasted of sexual assault, to the pinnacle of government, and some 63 million people were willing to overlook the racism, the misogyny, the avarice and the ignorance either because they liked all that stuff or they hated Hillary or they wanted to ban abortion or just blow up the system. I took Trump’s election personally. I was angry and bitterly disappointed, even at Trump supporters in my own family. Not because they’re more conservative than me, but because they fell in line with this unqualified lout. As much shit as the supposedly elitist coastal liberal bubbles have gotten over the last month, to me they represent the best of America – its innovation and ingenuity, its intellectualism, openness and commitment to diversity. And after this election, I came to look askance of those white working-class Trump voters who are now the subjects of a thousand New York Times think pieces, as if their precious feelings and economic anxiety matters more than those of the Latino in Los Angeles or the African-American in Atlanta. But, like the Trump voters in my family, many of them are good and decent if perhaps misguided people. (There are deplorables, too; let’s not kid ourselves.) And I don’t want to lose sight of that. To make real progress, progressives need to listen to these folks and speak to their needs. But more than an electoral strategy, I can’t write off 63 million people as hopelessly devoid of kindness and compassion. By engaging with them, perhaps my faith in humanity will eventually be restored. I’m not there yet. Maybe by next New Year’s. feedback@orlandoweekly.com @jeffreybillman on Twitter

The tiny house movement embraces some big ideas BY RI CHARD REEP

Tiny houses at Orlando Lakefront

dam Money looks deceptively boyish, with a surfer’s tan, blue eyes and a ready smile. Now in his 30s, he could be paying a big mortgage on a suburban ranch home, but instead Money is restoring a kitchen in the clubhouse of the RV park he owns, Orlando Lakefront. He’s built several tiny houses in this mobile home community, bought a few more, and he gazes at them lovingly, like family, as he tours the property. From Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando Lakefront looks like any other ordinary mobile home park. But these tiny homes, like the movement itself, are secreted inside the more conventional picture of Americana. The standard American dream is a job and a house and a yard and a dog and a kid or two, but Money would rather build a neighborhood, one tiny house at a time. Tiny houses are trendy, and yet they’re nothing new – wetuash, wattle-and-daub, log cabins and soddies were the original American tiny houses. Giant houses are still rising at a furious pace, and if that’s your choice, there’s nothing wrong with displaying your success writ large. For more and more people, however, something’s missing, and a big empty house is small comfort. Money’s College Park tiny house village started on the western edge of Lake CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

A tiny home repurposed from a U-Haul trailer

Fairview and is bit by bit spreading inland, back into the park. Money gambled on his intuition that people crave the look and feel of a traditional house; the brightly colored tiny houses strut like tropical cocktails in between weathered old mobile homes. He pauses at the edge of the lake. “My first tiny house was that one over there,” he gestures with pride. It looks like the back of a U-Haul truck – and indeed that’s what it is, repainted cinnamon-orange and nestled into an oak-shaded wood deck. “Elaine liked that spot, so I converted a used trailer into a house just for her,” Money says. Cynthia Aimo, a retired attorney and one of Money’s early buyers, lives in a sunny yellow tiny house perched on the shore. She’s busy cleaning it while her friendly dog watches. “Mainly, I wanted something I could manage without gobbling up all of my time,” she offers from the doorway, vacuum cleaner in hand. Aimo’s choice to stay small was deliberate: “It is a liberating feeling, not having a huge house hanging over my head, or a big rent check every month.” Tiny homes represent an option for people who intentionally downsize and want to live more outside of their homes than within them. Conditioned to want more 12

and more, many have succumbed to the American Dream spoon-fed to us by advertising agencies, but by redefining what is meant by “more,” people like Adam Money and Cynthia Aimo are reserving less for big houses and more for their own bigger dreams of the future. ith the exploding popularity of books, websites and TV shows (Tiny House Big Living, Tiny Luxury, Tiny House Nation, Tiny House Hunters, Tiny House Builders, Tiny House Arrest, et. al.) dedicated to the trend, “What’s a tiny house?” isn’t a question heard very often these days. But for the record, practitioners generally define a tiny house as a livable structure (walls, roof, kitchen, bathroom) under 500 square feet, about the size of a two-car garage. The concept of “living little” started to rise during the decluttering/minimalist craze of the ’00s and gained traction when the recession hit, as a way to combat ridiculous mortgages, endless weekends spent on home repair and lawn-mowing, and the bitter reality that your house value can, despite all your work, drop like a rock when

the big boys on Wall Street screw up. The most common tiny dwelling is the kind on wheels. (Those living the life often refer to them as THOWs.) Tiny houses on wheels can go into RV parks (pending park-owner approval), and sometimes into backyards and other properties, if zoning laws let them – it’s all about access to water, electricity and sewerage. Eight feet wide by 13 feet high is about as big as you can build; the width and height are restricted by the trailer you build on, and the fact that they can’t be moved on a public thoroughfare without a special permit if they’re any taller or wider than that. But they can be as long as you care to tug around, from a 40-foot-long bussized model to a glorified walk-in closet on a flatbed. Literally a mobile home, a THOW offers, well, mobility: If you don’t like your neighbors, you can always find new ones. If you don’t want your home to be on wheels, you can build a brick-and-mortar (or whatever material you choose) house on a permanent foundation. And that’s when your local building code takes over. Stairs must be easy enough for everyone to climb, the structure must be hurricane-proof, and it can’t suck electricity like a vampire. The freedom to be bigger and taller than their little wheeled cousins comes at a price: a

host of municipal rules, from window sizes to ceiling height, that differ from state to state and even city to city. Unlike THOWs, tiny houses on foundations do not face a maximum size limit; instead, they must meet minimum size limits. This was once protection from slumlords building inhumanely small dwellings, but it now serves as property value protectionism. (A street crammed with McMansions is still seen as a desirable and prosperous neighborhood.) Most places hard-code a minimum house size; in the city of Orlando, it’s 350 square feet per person. Although 700 square feet is not excessive for a couple, it is much larger than the 400 or 500 square feet commonly used as a guideline by the tiny house movement. Zoning codes usually allow for a small accessory structure on a lot, so long as an actual house is already on the property: think backyard guest cottages, garage apartments, mother-in-law suites. The Fair Housing Act, a 1960s federal regulation, still maintains minimum property standards, but only to guard against cruelly small house sizes: One room must be 120 square feet, with one wall at least 9 feet long. One thing tiny houses on wheels and tiny houses on foundations have in common is the creative use of three-dimensional space, with lofts and ladders to maximize every square inch. You might find everything you need within reach if you stand in one or two places, and making every space count becomes critical. Water remains the most difficult problem to solve. Few tiny houses have cisterns, and nearly all of them use various forms of composting toilets. Lacking a sanitary sewer or septic system, one must be ready to deal with the … er … compost. Water supply has to come from somewhere, while the shower and sink have to drain somewhere too. Meanwhile, a major appeal of tiny homes is that energy costs are much lower, and solar energy is attainable on a smaller budget. All-LED lighting is now pretty standard, and many tiny houses sport photovoltaic panels. Thanks to countries like Japan, with its extremely high energy costs, we now have super-efficient air conditioners that easily adapt to tiny homes. Mitsubishi’s famous “Mr. Slim” electric model has been knocked off by other manufacturers, allowing tiny-house owners to quietly cool their homes with small ductless units. ore than 30,000 people attended the first Florida Tiny House Festival at the St. John’s County Fairgrounds in November, proving CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

that this is not just a hipster trend – it’s a bona fide movement. The festival was held on a cool, sunny weekend. Strangers struck up conversations in long lines, waiting to step up into tiny houses parked in a field on display. Ben and Stacy came over from near Port Orange. Ben’s a tall, handsome retired police officer with a service disability, and Stacy is a jovial, auburnhaired traveling nurse. “We live in a condo that’s 1,400 square feet, and we detest it,” Stacy says. “At our income level, there wasn’t much to choose from, and the tiny house offers an attractive solution.” “We’ve always lived weird,” she grins. “Once, on a whim, we just up and moved to St. Croix, where I worked as a nurse. It was fun!” Ben sees tiny houses as “more durable than mobile homes, and we can take it with us. It won’t tie us down.” Stacy sums it up: “We live for experiences, not materialism.” “Tiny houses aren’t for tiny budgets,” comments a nearby attendee, as we stand in line for a tour of a Cornerstone model. Cornerstone Tiny Homes, based in Longwood, Florida, is probably the Rolls Royce of THOW builders, offering models from 20 to 32 feet long decked out with details like gorgeous glass-tiled showers, granite countertops, ceiling-suspended barn doors and special recessed niches for flatscreen TVs,

which rise on command. These go for around $270-$300 per square foot, as listed on their website. For one thing, the chassis isn’t cheap. For another, tiny homes require the same things that bigger homes do: windows, doors, plumbing, wiring and air conditioning. Building costs aren’t just about the amount of materials, anyway; much more of the cost is in the labor, and tiny home builders still compete on quality of design and construction features. The craftsmanship on display at the festival was high. One tiny house boasted a carved oaken bathtub, which sat beautifully in a tiny bathroom resplendent with tiny tiles. All of these little houses are kind of cute, with their miniature gables, dormers, portholes and front porches. Designs range from shippingcontainer chic to gingerbready Victorian and everything in between. These structures are in the most exciting evolutionary phase of all – there isn’t a “formula” house yet, so inventive builders at the festival were showing off their most creative uses of space. There were different arrangements of rooms, interweaving kitchens with living spaces, microscopic porches and loft bedrooms. Stairs became armoires, dining tables hinged up and down on the wall, and TVs disappeared into slots. What to put over the bathroom – a big bed, or a storage niche? – becomes a CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

micro-design project, one that the owners can participate in. Over 90 houses on wheels rolled into the festival to be viewed, poked and prodded like cars on a dealer’s lot. Singles and younger couples shopped like first-time homebuyers, rapping knuckles on countertops and running fingers over freshly painted wood trim. Retirees eyed the houses hungrily, gauging their spouses’ reactions hopefully. Professional for-sale builds competed with DIY models, which included a few restored vintage RVs, schoolbuses colorfully painted Partridge Family-style, and one rather dour-looking converted semi truck, at best a work in progress. In another line, we chat with a young family standing in line to see a fifth-wheel model built by Tiny House Chattanooga. Edward Lee, the dad, says, “We’re living in a mobile home now.” His wife adds, “I’m just fascinated with the TV shows. You know, what I appreciate about these tiny houses is the clever use of space. I want to see one for real and get inspired to use our own space better.” Lee says, “Someday we hope to afford a real house.” His children nod somberly. Tiny houses are not aspirational toys for everyone. For the Lees, it was a chance to see new ways of thinking about living. They toured nearly all of the houses and came away impressed. “There are some really good ideas here,” Lee says. “I wish the mobile home people would take a lesson from these houses.” 16

maller tiny houses can cost as little as $20,000, or about as much as a car. Larger, more tricked-out models get up north of $100,000. When shopping, it’s easy to get lured into the old habits of consumption and overfetishize the kitchens and bathrooms. Most people want to live tiny as a rejection of that impulse, and follow through on downsizing, but it’s OK to have nice things, too. Saving the money and buying in cash is what every wise tiny-house guru counsels. If you’re living tiny, why continue to support a bank with a mortgage payment? However, loans can be had for tiny houses, and the monthly payments aren’t too burdensome – similar to a car payment. Once the tiny house is parked, it’s easy to add decks and other outdoor-life accoutrements. “This is Florida, after all,” Aimo laughed, pointing out her new deck facing Lake Fairview, when we visited her at College Park’s Orlando Lakefront community. “I don’t want a big house. I want to travel,” was the most common refrain at the Tiny House Festival, when we asked people why they were considering them. Richard Skinner and his wife budgeted $30,000 for theirs. “My wife and I just want our home to be base camp,” Skinner said. Their place in Flagler County will accept tiny homes, and once it’s parked, “We’re off!” arts@orlandoweekly.com

BY SETH KUBERSKY STAR WARS LAND CONCEPT ART | RENDERING COURTESY LUCASFILM/DISNEY

Throughout 2016, I’ve felt men-

aced and attacked by forces that left me aching for revenge. But in the closing hours of this annus horribilis, I found – dare I say it? – a new hope that these past 12 months may soon be seen as a sucky prequel to a terrific trilogy (or two) to come. OK, it may simply be sci-fantasy to hope that a plucky band of rebels will strike back against encroaching fascism and return freedom to our corner of the galaxy, or even that we’ll all someday look like Kenner action figures of our long, long-ago selves. It may just be my apres-Rogue One buzz talking, but I’m ready to finally turn a page on Episode MMXVI and start getting excited for the new arts and attractions rapidly approaching us in the new year. While we’re speaking of Star Wars, let’s start at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, whose new Star Wars land won’t open for several more years. As a stopgap, elements from the newest film were recently added to the Launch Bay exhibit and nightly Galactic Spectacular fireworks, which is currently my favorite nighttime show at Walt Disney World. Animal Kingdom will debut Pandora, their new Avatar-inspired expansion, and (hopefully) Rivers of Light, which was on my “most anticipated” list for 2016 before its indefinite delay. And the Magic Kingdom ended 2016 by introducing beer and wine to more sit-down restaurants in the park, which should help dull the pain of the park not getting a new E-Ticket next year. But it’s Epcot that’s kicking off 2017 with my most eagerly awaited Disney addition, the new International Festival of the Arts running Jan. 13-Feb. 20. Along with food kiosks and art displays, the event will include concerts starring Broadway performers from Aladdin, Newsies and other

I’m ready to turn the page on 2016 and get excited about new arts and attractions in the New Year. Disney shows. Epcot’s World Showcase now hosts “seasonal” festivals virtually year-round. That may help distract guests from the sorry state of Future World, which will soon see major revamping; you should probably take your farewell rides on Ellen’s Energy Adventure ASAP. A few miles up I-4, Universal Orlando has its hands full with not only additional attractions and hotel rooms on tap for 2017, but an entire new park. Universal ended 2016 strong with an improved Macy’s Holiday Parade (boasting better choreography and a beautiful new Virginia Davis balloon) in the Studios, which makes me optimistic for the new Secret Life of Pets segment just added to the park’s aging afternoon parade. What intrigues me most are the crowd-management concepts Universal is introducing with their new Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon simulator and Volcano Bay water park, which will leverage smartphone apps and electronic bracelets to eliminate standby lines, replacing queues with reserved entry times. Across the under-construction Caravan Court cut-through to International Drive, Fun Spot delivered their own glimpse of the future as an early Christmas gift, making the dynamite VR Coaster I demoed during IAAPA available to regular guests

riding their Freedom Flyer without additional charge. If an independent outfit like Fun Spot can make VR functional, I have faith that SeaWorld can figure it out for themselves by next summer, when Kraken will sprout virtual reality headsets. Over on the performing arts side, I’m beside myself with excitement over next weekend’s Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest, which revives 19 of the best productions from last May’s festival, including several Critics’ Choice winners that I helped select. Local favorites like 5 Lesbians Eating Quiche, Jefferson & Jupiter, Space and Slut Like Me will return to Orlando Shakes Jan. 5-8, alongside national and international acts including Jimmy Hogg, Jon Bennett, Stewart Huff, Inescapable and Edgar Allan. Speaking of Orlando Shakes, they recently announced my inner nerd’s No. 1 pick for next spring, a staging of Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra starring Michael Dorn, aka Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation. As I mentioned last week, Mad Cow’s troubles have prompted concern about the state of Orlando’s theater community, but from where I stand it looks strong. Director Kenny Howard capped 2016 at the Orlando Repertory Theatre with the Orlando premiere of Out of the Apple Orchard, a rare Jewish-themed holiday play. Winter Park Playhouse launches their 2017 Spotlight series Jan. 11-12 with Natalie Cordone’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, the latest cabaret from the operatic veteran of Vegas and NYC. And Greater Orlando Actors Theatre is following up 2016’s Jekyll & Hyde with another horror musical Jan. 13-22, The Toxic Avenger. So no matter what becomes of the pasture, 2017 seems to be poised for a stellar start. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

NOLA-STYLE CHARBROILED OYSTERS

How to host a New Year’s Eve bonfire with minimal work and maximum flash

If you can’t get to the Big Easy to partake of these broiled bivalves, doing it yourself is the next best thing. Get a big enough square of chicken wire (or a big grill grate, if you’re fancy) and set it right on top of the fire until the oysters bubble. If shucking oysters isn’t on your list of kitchen skills, grab a couple dozen pre-shucked from Lombardi’s Seafood in Winter Park (order by 3 p.m. Dec. 30 to pick up by 3 p.m. Dec. 31). To prepare, set the oysters on the halfshell on the grate. Sprinkle each one generously with Parmesan, minced garlic and a big dot of salted butter. Set the grate on the fire for 10 or 15 minutes, or until the oysters start to bubble and the cheese is golden-brown.

fter all the insanity this year brought (and, let’s face it, 2017 ain’t gonna answer anyone’s prayers either), let’s just forget the sequins and black ties, the fireworks and fanciness. Put on your comfiest jeans and your coziest flannel and head out back. Instead of shelling out megabucks for champagne toasts or paying cover charges just to dodge a bunch of amateurs’ vomit puddles, stay home. Eat good food around a backyard bonfire with your buds. Cook over an open fire. Make a big batch of cocktails to share rather than popping a hundred bottles. Simplify. (If you’re still looking for a New Year’s resolution, that’s a good one.) To simplify things even further, here’s a menu you can follow. Don’t even think about weenies and marshmallows – we’re all adults here, and you’ll want something full of flavor and sophistication, even if you’re just sitting on tailgate chairs and sipping from Solos. Follow this plan and you’ll eat fabulously fireside on Dec. 31 without having a dish to wash on Jan. 1. That’s ringing in 2017 in a blaze of glory, if you ask us.

an hour, move the pot (wear pot holders!) to the outer edge of the fire, making sure there’s still coals underneath it, for two or three more hours. Remove the pot from the fire and let cool for 20 or 30 minutes. Shred the pork with a fork and layer it on fresh buns with coleslaw and bread-and-butter pickles. For tacos, rub the pork shoulder with ancho chili powder, sugar, cumin, coriander, allspice, lime juice and salt, all to taste. Let it sit in the refrigerator for up to two days, covered. When you’re ready to cook, place the pork in the cast iron skillet and pour a dark beer around it, then follow the same cooking directions as for the BBQ pork above. Serve with tortillas, pickled jalapeños, cilantro and sour cream, plus any other toppings you love.

CAST-IRON COBBLER

MAIN

AULD LANG SWINE COCKTAIL

BEER + BOURBON + BERRIES = BLASTED Make an ice raft by placing fresh cranberries and four cups of hot water in a bundt pan, then leaving it in the freezer until set. Make the punch by mixing three and a half cups of cranberry juice, a cup of bourbon, half a cup of lime juice, a quarter-cup of simple syrup, an ounce of cinnamon-flavored whisky (like Fireball) and four bottles of lager beer. Use a little hot water to loosen the raft from the bundt pan and float it in the punch bowl before serving.

You have two ways to go here. First option: Braise a pork shoulder with a bottle of BBQ sauce in a heavy cast-iron pot or Dutch oven for two hours, then serve with potato rolls or King’s Hawaiian sweet bread and pre-made coleslaw for easy pulled pork sandwiches. Or rub a pork shoulder with Mexican chilies and spices and braise it in dark beer, then pull it apart and stuff it into tortillas for tacos. If you go the BBQ route, marinate the pork shoulder for 24 hours before cooking. Then place the pork shoulder and the marinade in a cast-iron pot with two cups of water or light lager beer. Put the cover on the pot and place the pot between the outer rim of the fire and the center. After orlandoweekly.com

If you’ve got a smaller crowd, you can make this in a cast-iron skillet nestled in the coals with a lid on top. If the whole neighborhood showed up, a deep cast-iron Dutch oven is best. Whatever fruit you choose (for the most festive, we’d go apple and cranberry), the topping is the same: a cup of brown sugar, a cup of rolled oats, three-quarters of a cup of flour, a pinch of salt and half a cup of chilled butter, all pulsed in a food processor until it comes together. For apple-cranberry cobbler, use three pounds of either Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and seeded – cut into large pieces. Add a bag of fresh cranberries, a generous cup of sugar, and two tablespoons of apple cider. Mix it all up. Layer the fruit mixture on the bottom of the pot, then top with the streusel. Cover and place the whole thing in the fire for about 40 minutes. Move the pot to the outside edge of the fire, lift the lid and let it cook another seven or eight minutes to crisp the top. Vanilla ice cream is not optional.

Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co. 111 W. Georgia Ave., DeLand, 386-873-7350, persimmonhollowbrewing.com

Essay question: Why should I drink here? It would be harder to think of reasons not to drink at Persimmon Hollow than to list all the reasons you should – though, admittedly, its location in DeLand makes it a once-in-a-while treat for Orlandoans. The historic building (converted from a garage) in DeLand’s SoNY neighborhood is an airy, high-ceilinged space scattered with big dining tables (each with six or so comfy high-backed chairs) with a longer bar counter tucked in toward the back, all with a view of the glassed-in area housing the shining steel tanks where Persimmon Hollow’s beers are brewed. With at least eight of their own brews on tap plus more bottles, cans, ciders and wine, there are plenty of sipping options, and the tables are full of couples canoodling, Stetson TAs grading papers, and families playing board games (complete with toddlers running around). The option to order in food is nice, too, especially considering the proximity to Bake Chop on Artisan Alley and Neighbors Artisan Taqueria across the street.

Short answer/multiple choice:

BY B AO L E - H U U TEMPERAMENT | PHOTO BY LIV JONSE

In music, in everything, it’s been a funereal year. But perhaps the way it concluded here – with two debuts that were inspired, homegrown and possibly recurring – can give us hope for 2017.

THE BEAT

Art guerrillas Time Waste Management and left-field dance cabal TMD – two of the city’s most forward arts organizations – pooled their energy and vision into Counterweight (Dec. 15, Audubon Park Covenant Church), a show merging ambient sounds, video art and an unconventional setting. Lifting off was Temperament, a drone project by Glenn Ritchey of noisemetal band Ad Nauseum. His elemental set unfurled like a soundtrack that suddenly makes you feel the mass tectonic creep happening beneath your feet. It was a slow rise that began in the primordial ooze, emerged into a prehistoric mammoth plod and then voyaged out into a storm of disintegration. Closing was Ubik, a project by Fortune Howl’s Bryce Linde. Unlike his main gig, this is an even more abstract concept whose experimental DNA is woven with strains of ambient music and found sound. It’s capricious, suspended in wonder and would be right at home on Illuminated Paths. With due respect to ambient music, however, there’s a reason it’s called such. So it was a smart stroke by the event conceivers to build in a visual aspect. Sounds like these allow visuals to be not just a backdrop but an integrated and activating force, like it was with the work of Orlando film artist Kate Shults. Her video projec-

Temperament’s set was a slow rise that began in the primordial ooze, emerged into a prehistoric mammoth plod and then voyaged out into a storm of disintegration. tions – spanning the entire chancel wall – were the only light in the cavernous space, creating kinetic impressionism that gave optical life to the sonic movements happening. But the last defining factor was the setting itself: a church. Alive with underground pulse, under the nighttime spell of art like this, it exuded extraordinary presence. Everything culminated, effectively and transportingly. Seeing people present interesting things is always great, but that’s only half the formula for sustainability. So it’s just as invigorating and meaningful to see a thirst for it like there was on this well-attended night. With such a compelling premiere, this multidisciplinary affair will be a series worth watching. It’s the most ambitious musical art campaign to contend in a long time, next-level DIY that’s beyond the garage. If Time Waste Management and TMD can make it a thing, Orlando will have a very fresh new horizon. Then, in an MVP turn only 48 hours later, Glenn Ritchey launched his own behemoth baby, the Florida Is Loud Fest (Dec. 16-18, Uncle Lou’s and Will’s Pub).

The festival – the biggest, most notable heavy-music congress in a long time – is a fiercely DIY affair that’s proof of the depth of community in the underground. Its focus is on Florida acts, which is a deep enough pool when it comes to metal and punk. But its reach radiated beyond, summoning a notable national in Nashville’s Yautja, who’ve forged alliances through frequent tours through here, and the homecoming of beloved, formerly local hardcore crew Knife Hits on the apex night (Dec. 17, Will’s Pub). I arrived in time to catch only the end of the set by St. Pete’s Weltesser, but the damage and infatuation is likely permanent. It doesn’t require a half-hour to absorb, process and appreciate a nuclear roar like this. It’s one of the most overwhelming detonations of sludge and doom around, and I will not be late for their next Orlando stop. Collectively, Knife Hits brought some impressive torque and velocity to a bill heavy on the heavy. But, individually, it was nice seeing the faces of these Orlando expats around the bar again. And Miami duo Holly Hunt reminded again that they own some of the most distilled and monolithic sludge in the game right now. Hopefully, the clear fellowship that permeated the proceedings and the crowds like the one that packed out Will’s Pub will impel the Florida Is Loud Fest to be a recurring thing, because there hasn’t been a concentration of talent this big, heavy and good here in years. Good vibes, maximum tonnage, unholy volume. Brace yourself, loves, TLU will be on break next week. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Florida Citrus Parade

Le BLORR

EVENTS

If you love a holiday parade – or just love standing around downtown – don’t miss this beloved annual tradition, a 1.4-mile processional of floats studded with thousands of pieces of citrus fruit alternating with highschool and college marching bands from across the country. Standing (and sniffing – wheeew, orange juice!) is free, of course, but elevated seating is also available for $29 per keister. As we went to press, grandstand seating was still available, but it tends to sell out – so if you want to observe in comfort, you’d better snap up tickets fast. The Citrus Parade is televised “in over 75 percent of the TV markets in the United States as well as international locations such as Canada, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and the military syndicated channel America One,” according to parade organizers, so whether you sit or stand, this is your chance to make Northerners jealous as you gently perspire for the camera. – Jessica Bryce Young pre-parade show 10 a.m.; parade 11 a.m.-1 p.m. | downtown Orlando, starting at Orange Avenue and Robinson Street | 407-423-2476 | floridacitrusparade.com | free; grandstand tickets $29

The Roots

MUSIC

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK

Sweaty, hairy Florida duo Le BLORR (that’s Bastard Lovechild of Rock & Roll, if you’re into acronyms in your rock & roll) ruled the game in this state for a few glorious years, a mess of big noise and bigger attitude that seemed readymade for arenas and festivals from downright minimal raw material and vocals. For a moment there, it looked like the twosome – Chris Hess (vocals/guitar) and Adam Wynn (drums) – were going to hit the big time with their Technicolor garage rock, but it wasn’t meant to be. Next thing you know, Hess and Wynn had moved on to their more meditative indie psych project, SWIMM, where they’re currently crafting serrated hymns and sweating it out in Los Angeles. But the holidays are here, and it has the odd effect of bringing people back home under the soft glow of nostalgia and second chances, so we’re one of only a couple of Florida cities benefitting from a brief spate of reunion shows at the end of this month. ’Tis the season. – Matthew Moyer with Saskatchewan, Fay Roy, Tiger Fawn | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N.

MUSIC

Before you kick 2016 to the curb, there’s one last event this year that might make it slightly redeemable after all the garbage it churned out. Legendary hip-hop band the Roots are coming to play in Orlando right after Christmas and before New Year’s, in an effort to end this year on a high note. The Philadelphia collective, named one of the greatest live bands by Rolling Stone magazine, includes original founding members Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson.

Deadly Vipers

Blue Year’s Eve MUSIC

Detroit scum-rock quartet the Deadly Vipers (formerly the Lady Snowbloodesque Deadly Viper Assassination Squad), despite their young age, have neatly sidestepped the more big-business side of modern Detroit rockers, and made a beeline for the dark alleys and forgotten corners of the truly fucked sound of the city. Think the Gories, the Stooges, Protomartyr, Wolf Eyes. Right now they’ve got the Cataclysmic Events 7-inch EP, and earlier this month dropped a fulllength album, A Night of Fright, on their Bandcamp page. Both are packed full of deranged, swampy, headtripped, skronked-out loser anthems. Local support comes from the Golden Pelicans, who know the good trash, for God’s sake. Recommended as a great way to cap off the live music end of 2016, during a part of the year that’s usually the live music dead zone, between Xmas and New Year’s. ’Tis the season? – MM with Golden Pelicans, GammaWaves | 9 p.m. | Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, 1016 N. Mills Ave. | 407-270-9104 | free

Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl: LSU vs. Louisville SPORTS

We’re going into this year’s Citrus Bowl with some high-stakes questions: Will the absence of Leonard Fournette on the field leave LSU in ruins despite an otherwise impressive season? Will Lamar Jackson’s Heisman win go to his head, creating an unchecked whirlwind of ego on the field and dooming Louisville? And most importantly: When, exactly, will Orlando get the downtown Buffalo Wild Wings location its residents sorely deserve? Sure, fans could make the trip down to I-Drive to the nationally known eatery and bar’s closest location, but then they’d have to hold back on B-Dub’s amazing selections of bucket beers and choice cocktails. How does the NCAA expect downtown Orlando to truly enjoy the Citrus Bowl experience when the game’s very namesake is an exceedingly expensive Uber ride away? Of all the bars celebrating college football downtown on this very day, we’re not hearing from the one we hoped would text back. And that’s not right, Buffalo Wild Wings. We’re tired of making sacrifices for a Parmesan Garlic-encrusted flight of boneless fancy! There’s no Asian Zing left in this relationship, so quit being a Caribbean Jerk and bring the Sweet BBQ to downtown. Come over to our place for once – and stay over. If you don’t, we can’t be held responsible for how many times we call you after digging into some Bourbon Honey Mustard. You knew we were full of Salt and Vinegar when you met us. – Abby Stassen 11 a.m. | Camping World Stadium, 1 Citrus Bowl Place | 407-440-5700 | campingworldstadium.com | $60-$260

As of press time, we’ve managed to make it through 2016 – a year fraught with celebrity deaths – without losing singular American songwriter and performance artist Tom Waits. But if we’ve learned anything from this year, it’s that it’s just a matter of time before things get worse. That fatalistic outlook has been a hallmark of plenty of Waits songs over the years, like 2002’s Blood Money standouts “Everything Goes to Hell” and “God’s Away on Business.” For New Year’s Eve, local Waits devotee Kaleigh Baker – who routinely inhabits the same dimly lit, whiskey-soaked musical terroir as Waits – offers up an entire evening to his songs, interpreting them in her distinctly powerful voice with accompaniment from some of Orlando’s best musicians. Something of a moody alternative to the raucous New Year’s Eve party featuring Jello Biafra next door, Baker’s Blue Year’s Eve only has a limited number of tickets available, eliminating the shoulder-to-shoulder cramped vibe that a busy night at Lil Indies can result in. To accompany the night of Kaleigh and Co. using beautiful melodies to tell you terrible things, Indies is working on a special all-Tom Waits-inspired menu, a slight break from their usual one-Tom Waitsthemed-drink per seasonal menu policy. – Thaddeus McCollum 9 p.m. | Lil Indies, 1036 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $15-$20

Fallout: New Year’s Eve EVENTS

Fans of the Fallout series of video games may recognize our current political situation – a thin-skinned man-baby president-elect destroying relations with China before he even gets into office – as oddly similar to the backstory to those games, where conflict between China and the United States results in an apocalyptic nuclear war. The games take place roughly 200 years after that as-yet hypothetical cataclysm, but Cloak & Blaster is giving you the chance to celebrate the nuclear holocaust months before it actually happens. For New Year’s Eve, Cloak & Blaster is getting decked out in a wasteland theme. Costumes are highly encouraged, so break out your Vault Dweller jumpsuit or gas up your power armor. The soundtrack is inspired by the ’40s and ’50s jazz and pop that fills out the playlists of the Galaxy News and Diamond City radio stations. One of the more intriguing prospects for the party, however, is the special themed food menu. We’re hoping it’s not too literal, as neither 200-year-old Blamco Mac & Cheese nor crispy squirrel bits sound particularly appealing. Although we may as well get the post-apocalyptic palate tuned now rather than later. – Thaddeus McCollum 7 p.m. | The Cloak & Blaster, 875 Woodbury Road | 407-674-7435 | cloakandblaster.com | $10-$150

Are you looking for a new pet? Adopt Noelle!

Earlier this month, we recorded our Savage Lovecast Christmas Spectacular live at Revolution Hall in Portland, Oregon. The audience submitted questions on tiny cards before the show, which allowed questioners to remain anonymous and forced them to be succinct. More questions were submitted than my guests and I could get to, so I promised the crowd I would answer as many of their unanswered questions as I could in this week’s column. Here we go … I’ve heard so many horror stories and seen countless X-rays online – any tips for making sure I don’t lose any objects in my ass? You know what you never see in those X-rays? Butt plugs and other toys designed for butt play. Stick to butt plugs with flared bases, dildos with bases that look like balls, orange traffic cones, etc., and you’ll be fine.

Noelle (A366029) is 5 years old and is looking for a home. She is a little shy when you first meet her, but she’ll warm up to you quickly. She walks well on a leash, loves to eat treats, and knows how to sit. Noelle also loves to run and play fetch! She is a very sweet and mellow dog. In January, the adoption fee for pets will be reduced to $17 in honor of 2017. The standard adoption fee for dogs is $55. The adoption fee includes sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407836-3111 or visit ocnetpets.com.

How common is it really for women to squirt? I get conflicting reports. This answer, courtesy of the Kinsey Institute, isn’t likely to satisfy you: “Somewhere from 10 to 54 percent of women experience some type of fluid expulsion in tandem with sexual arousal and orgasm.” Maybe the incoming Trump administration can put the scientists they’re pulling off climate change onto female ejaculation and we’ll have better numbers before the 2018 midterm elections. How do I get my partner – who says he’s into it – to top me “properly,” i.e., work me into a sub space instead of him just melting into an ooey-gooey love ball? There are lots of terrific pro doms in Portland, Oregon. Hire one who’s up for showing your partner what proper topping looks like.

If he says it affectionately and occasionally, it’s not a problem and it’s not unusual. If he says it to degrade/humiliate/control you, it’s a problem and it’s unacceptable.

stigma). But the existence of a spouse must be disclosed sometime between the end of the first text exchange and the start of the first blow job.

How do white people talk to black people about Donald Trump?

My wife goes on long runs with her girlfriend. I’m sure they are having sex in the woods. I’m jealous because I’m not getting enough. What should I do?

Fifty-eight percent of white people voted for Trump, and 8 percent of black people voted for Trump. So yeah, maybe instead of talking to black people about Trump, white people should shut up and listen to black people instead? “Hall passes” don’t work for many women because they can’t orgasm when having random sex once with a random guy. What alternative would you recommend? Where is it written on your hall pass – or anyone else’s – that it can be used only with complete strangers? Nowhere, that’s where. How do you propose a foursome with your longtime friends without freaking them out or ruining the friendship? Not proposing the foursome is the only way to avoid potentially freaking your friends out and ruining the friendship. How do you decide who wins an argument in a same-sex relationship? A sudden-death round of Golden Girls trivia. All straight guys want to put it in your butt, but when you suggest eating it first, they run for the hills. How can I bridge this gap and get my ass eaten? Date gay guys. How do I avoid lesbian bed death?

Trans man and cis female, happily married, planning to get pregnant in the next five months. How do we break it to my wife’s family? Half of them don’t know I’m trans and will be carrying, and we don’t want to lie, but also we don’t want them to see us as anything other than just a couple. Telling your partner’s family you’re trans isn’t going to decouple you. You’ll still be “just a couple,” it’s just that one of you is trans. Since you’re not going to be able to hide which one of you is pregnant – not in the Twitter/Instagram/Facebook era – the sooner you tell them, the sooner they’ll have their freakouts, and the sooner they’ll return to seeing you as the couple you always were and still are. My partner/husband of 40 years says I still embarrass him. Is this unusual?

“ R E VO LU T I O N H A L L”

Date gay guys. I’m in a FMF poly triad, and I’m looking to incorporate another guy into the mix. I’d look online, but I’m a public-school teacher in a small town. How do I find someone without outing myself and risking my career? Ask your partners to do the headhunting.

Get your own “running” partner. I’m four months pregnant. My husband won’t stop talking about how excited he is to taste my breast milk. I said he could try it from a bottle, but he wants it from the source. I want to be GGG, but this weirds me out. Tell your husband you’re going to table this topic for the time being. It’s possible you’ll be less weirded out by the idea once you’re actually breast-feeding, or the opposite is also a possibility. But pestering you about it for the next five months isn’t going to increase his chances of getting it from the source – quite the opposite. (And for the record: You can be GGG and still have hard limits/absolutely nots.) I’m a 25-year-old gay man who doesn’t resonate with hookup culture. If I’m not comfortable fucking right away, how can I compete/find a partner? I get your question all the time – which means you’re not alone. Be up front about what you are willing to do (fuck after a getting-to-know-you date or two) and what you are not willing to do (fuck after a “’sup?” or two), and you’ll scare off the wrong-for-you boys and attract the right-for-you boys. I’m too broken. I don’t know where to start. Therapy. Not a question, but a thank-you for helping me to undo my “Utah damage.” Grateful for you, Dan! Merry Xmas! You’re welcome, former Utahan, a belated Merry Xmess to you, and a happy/watchful/ politically-engaged/join-the-resistance New Year to all! On the Lovecast, Dan Savage and the brilliant Randy Rainbow: savagelovecast.com. mail@savagelove.net

If you’re married and in an open relationship, do you need to include that info in your Tinder profile? Or can you wait until later? You should include/disclose that info in your profile (best practice), but many similarly situated men choose to wait until later (understandable practice, considering the orlandoweekly.com ● DEC. 28, 2016-JAN. 3, 2017

STATE OF MAINE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY, PROBATE COURT DOCKET NO: A-2016-089 In Re: Jayda Lyday Jen P. Pendergast and Daniel L. Pendergast, Petitioners, v. Chris C. Lyday, II, Respondent. ORDER FOR SERVICE BY PUBLICATION This cause came to be heard on a motion of the Petitioners, whose address is 3 View Street, Brunswick, Maine 04011, for service by publication on Respondent. The petition to be served seeks the termination of parental rights of the Respondent in and to his daughter, Jayda Lyday. An order terminating the parental rights of Chris C. Lyday, II would divest said Respondent of all legal rights, powers, privileges, immunities and obligations to each other as parent and child, except such inheritance rights as may exist, and divest Chris C. Lyday, II of all rights to receive notice of, participate in or object to adoption proceedings. Chris C. Lyday II is entitled to legal council in these termination proceedings and if said Chris C. Lyday, II wishes such representation but is unable to afford it, he should contact the Cumberland County Probate Court, which holds sessions at 142 Federal Street, Portland, Maine. The court finds that the above-named Respondent, Chris C. Lyday II cannot with due diligence be served by any of the prescribed methods of service and that his whereabouts are unknown and cannot be ascertained by reasonable and due diligence. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Respondent shall appear and defend the cause and serve a response to the petition upon Petitioners on or before February 22, 2017 at 11:20 am. The Respondent is notified that if he shall fail to do so, judgment by default will be taken against him for the relief demanded in the petition. His response should also be filed with the Cumberland County Probate Court, 142 Federal Street, Suite 125, Portland, Maine, 04101. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, that this Order be published in the Orlando Weekly, a weekly newspaper published in the Orlando, Florida area, once a week for three successive weeks on or before December 24,2016. Dated December 14, 2016. /s/ Joseph R. Mazziotti, Judge of Probate.
