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: Ángel Luis Candelario Padró Ángel Candelario Padró was preparing to start a new chapter in his life. He would not live to see it through. The 28-year-old, originally from Guánica, Puerto Rico, was to start a new job as an ophthalmic technician at Florida Retina Institute in Orlando on June 20. He had also recently found love. On June 12, Candelario Padró was at the gay nightclub Pulse with his boyfriend and friends when he was killed along with 48 others in a mass shooting. The Florida Retina Institute says its physicians and employees were shocked and deeply saddened to hear about Candelario Padró’s death. “We were all looking forward to Angel becoming a part of our team of technicians and the FRI family,” the Institute said in a statement. “We cannot express how deeply

grieved we are at this horrible turn of events.” Before moving to Orlando, Candelario Padró lived in Chicago and worked for nearly two years at the Illinois College of Optometry. The college says he will be remembered for “his kindness, vivacious spirit, and passion for fitness and dancing.” “Our staff, faculty, and students are saddened by this tragedy and senseless loss of life,” ICO said in a statement. “We will celebrate all that Angel was, and draw solace from his life and the imprint he made on our community.” His aunt Leticia Padró told Univision her nephew was “a good kid, without vices, very humble, respectful and studious.” Before moving to Florida, Candelario Padró was studying nursing at the Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico and was a member of the National Guard. At his funeral on the island, he was buried in a white lab coat with his stethoscope. His coffin was draped with an American flag. “My darling son,” his mother, Lucyvette Padró wrote on Facebook. “You left me. It left emptiness in my soul that I can’t forget. You left me. You were very special.” In one of his last Instagram posts from Chicago, Candelario Padró wrote, “I hate goodbyes. Life keeps going up, chasing dreams. Keeping good friends in my heart.”

Orlando International Airport fills with protesters in response to Trump’s travel ban, Florida lawmakers push for a fracking ban, some new local rules for drones and other things you may have missed this week. »

Protesters rally at MCO to support immigrant, Muslim communities:

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s executive order aimed at refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, almost a thousand people gathered at Orlando International Airport over the weekend to stand with Muslim and immigrant communities. Trump’s executive order suspends entry of all refugees into the country for 120 days and bars Syrian refugees indefinitely. Citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen will be blocked from entry into the U.S. for 90 days. Four federal judges ruled against the order signed by Trump, and at least one granted an emergency stay for citizens of the seven countries who were already here and people who are in transit and hold valid visas. In Orlando, U.S. Rep. Darren Soto helped with the release of three people being held under the executive order.

Sarasota lawmaker breaks up gun proposal into smaller parts:

Against the wishes of enthusiasts and lobbyists, the City Beautiful approved a new ordinance that prohibits flying drones within 500 feet of city-owned parks and buildings, schools, venues, theme parks and gatherings of more than 1,000 people. You can get a permit per flight ($20) or per year ($150). Violating the ordinance can incur a fine of $200 to $400. Florida Sen. Dana Young, a Tampa Republican, and a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers introduced a measure last week to ban all types of fracking, including hydraulic fracturing, the process of extracting gas and oil from underground by injecting water, sand and chemicals into rock formations. That’s quite a reversal from last year, when Young and other Republicans supported a measure in the Florida House that would have created a regulatory framework for fracking in Florida and pre-empted local governments from imposing their own bans or regulations opposing the practice. The 2016 measure passed the House but was killed in the Senate.

State Sen. Greg Steube intends to advance his proposals to allow people with concealed weapons licenses to openly carry firearms, to carry concealed firearms on college campuses, and to carry firearms at airport terminals as separate pieces of legislation. With the Republican’s proposal broken down into about 10 parts, it’ll be a lot more work for gun reform advocates to quell these measures and pass their own proposals. mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

nable. And that ultimately gave us Trump. The question is whether Democrats will prove as ruthless as their Republican counterparts, or if they’ll instead try to pick and choose their battles. The evidence so far suggests the latter. Fourteen Dems, after all, lent tepid support for the nominations of torture sympathizer Mike Pompeo (two other Democrats didn’t vote); liberal stalwart Elizabeth Warren backed the woefully inadequate Ben Carson to head HUD; and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has ruled out reflexively blocking Trump’s Supreme Court choice, as Republicans did to Obama last year. (It’s possible that filibuster will manifest once there’s an actual nominee to oppose.) With a normal Republican president, this is fine: Work with him when you can, oppose him when you can’t, try to beat him in four years. This is responsible governance, and had the president been, say, John Kasich, it would have been the correct path for Democrats to take, no matter how Republicans treated Obama. But Trump is not a normal Republican president. Trump is an existential threat to American democracy. And existential threats demand total war, war on every front. After all, you don’t know which battle will prove fatal. But you know that, eventually, one of them will. See, while the bed of nails analogy might describe Trump’s political career thus far, it’s not really predictive. The analogy of Mr. Burns is much more so. After his diagnosis – everything, but in perfect balance – Burns looks at the doctor and says, “So what you’re saying is, I’m indestructible?” “Oh no,” the doctor replies. “In fact, even a slight breeze could – ” “Indestructible,” Burns cuts him off. But Mr. Burns – like Mr. Trump – is not indestructible. The slightest breeze could kill him. @jeffreybillman on Twitter feedback@orlandoweekly.com

THAT SINKING FEELING Environmental advocates fight the “done deal” Sabal Trail pipeline as Central Floridians begin to realize what’s about to come through their backyards BY MON IVETTE COR D EI R O

T

hrough smudgy clouds of dust and smoke from burning sage, a crowd of hundreds softly chants under the watchful eyes of police. “The people gonna rise like water, we’re gonna face this crisis now,” they sing at increasing volumes. “I hear the voice of my great-granddaughter, we’re gonna shut this pipeline down!” Stationed in the middle of the throng, a smaller circle of 20 people with their arms linked and locked inside PVC pipes sits on a dirt path close to the crystal-clear waters of the Suwannee River. If the energy companies get their way, beneath that same dirt will be a 36-inch pipe – a small piece of the $3.2 billion Sabal Trail pipeline snaking 515 miles through Alabama, Georgia and Florida that’s meant to transport more than 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas every day from the Marcellus Shale. Plans call for the Sabal Trail pipeline to tunnel under forests, wetlands, ranches and several bodies of water, including the Withlacoochee, Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers. The pipeline will also sit above the Floridan aquifer, the primary drinking water source for people living in the upper half of Florida and southern Georgia. Representatives from the energy companies say the pipeline will bring affordable natural gas to Florida and provide an economic stimulus in the form of increased tax revenue and local jobs. But environmental advocates and “water protectors,” inspired by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s indigenous-led resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline, say Sabal Trail could potentially jeopardize the source of clean water for millions and threaten Florida’s natural environment. Because of Standing Rock, interest in the Sabal Trail pipeline has peaked, especially among young people, though the fight against the pipeline

began several years ago. The crowd demonstrating in January close to the Suwannee near Live Oak was a youthful, scruffy bunch ready to be arrested for halting construction. Toward the back, Beverly Soulshine holds her 7-month-old baby, Atom, as tears stream down her cheeks. They traveled four hours to get here from an area near Pensacola. Soulshine says she cries because she knows despite the protests, the arrests and the settlement camps, there’s no stopping the Sabal Trail pipeline. “On the day that this pipeline is built – because it’s gonna be built – I want to be able to say that I was here to say I don’t stand for it,” she says. “They will literally cut us out to build this pipeline. I don’t know why I’m here other than to say, ‘I care,’ and connect with people who also care.” Atom grabs onto her with his tiny fists as they look at the demonstrators. “We’re fighting for it now, but if we can’t succeed, what’s going to happen for the future, for the children?” Soulshine asks. “Atom is going to have to be the one to deal with it. There has to be a more sustainable way to live than to live off oil and gas. We have solar power, we have wind power, we have so much power and yet we give in to fear and money.” Soulshine isn’t the only one worried about stopping the pipeline before its completion in June 2017. Environmentalists in Georgia and Florida say they’ve been fighting for years to get someone – the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Army Corps of Engineers, the federal Environmental Protection Agency, state departments of environmental protection, state legislators – to halt Sabal Trail and revoke its permits. Advocates hoping the increasing demonstrations would cause an intervention were disheartened after President Donald

Trump superseded the Army Corps of Engineers’ December decision to halt DAPL construction and revived the Keystone XL pipeline then-President Barack Obama vetoed in 2015. But other activists say they won’t stop fighting until the underground pipeline is turned on, and even then, they’ll be there yelling until someone turns it off.

“F

lorida is late to the party,” Gordon Rogers says with a dry

laugh. The Flint Riverkeeper from Georgia doesn’t mean to sound disparaging – it’s the tone of someone who’s exhausted his options in a years-long battle to stop the Sabal Trail pipeline. “Some people protested back then, but it’s not the kind of response we’re seeing now,” he says. “It would have been nice to have this two years ago. I’m not criticizing people for protesting now, but what’s happening is just a travesty. It’s absolutely ridiculous.” Rogers says almost three years ago, a group of wealthy landowners on the northwest side of Albany, Georgia, including former Florida Gov. Bob Graham and media mogul Ted Turner, reached out to the Georgia chapter of the Sierra Club and the WWALS Watershed Coalition because they’d heard about a new pipeline from Houston-based Spectra Energy that would be cutting through easements on their properties. More people joined the coalition after they realized that one of the project’s compressor stations would be constructed in a predominantly African-American neighborhood. Aside from posing no material benefit to Georgia, advocates argued Spectra has had a series of troubling incidents, including $12 million in damage from an explosion at its Texas Eastern

Transmission line, though the company says on its website that its incident rate is roughly half the industry average. After the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted the Sabal Trail pipeline a certificate of public convenience and necessity, Spectra Energy could use the powers of eminent domain under the federal law to buy the pieces of private property it needed. “The FERC process is completely broken from a citizen’s point of view, but quite nice from the pipeline’s,” Rogers says. “The lawyers basically explained they were going to lose.” In a surprising bipartisan measure, the Georgia Legislature even voted down a measure to grant easements crossings under five rivers for Sabal Trail. But Rogers says that wasn’t enough to halt the project. “I hate to tell these folks in Florida, but you can’t stop it,” he says. “Even if the president stepped in and did something, it would eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court unless Congress changes the law. You can’t win. We’re trying like hell.” Aside from explosions, environmentalists like John Quarterman, the Suwannee Riverkeeper, are concerned about sinkholes that could be provoked by drilling into the karst topography filled with underground caverns and streams. Back in November, Quarterman and his group found drilling mud from the Sabal Trail pipeline leaking into Georgia’s part of the Withlacoochee River. In a statement released at the time, a spokesperson for Sabal Trail said “there was never any danger to human health or safety, and no harm to the environment.” The company did acknowledge the discharge was a mixture of bentonite clay and water, which Quarterman says can deplete the oxy-

gen in the water. He’s more concerned other discharges could upset the delicate system in the Floridan aquifer, ultimately affecting the drinking water. The EPA seemed to think so as well, at least at some point. In a 30-page letter delivered to FERC in 2015, Chris Militscher of the EPA’s National Environmental Policy Act Program Office wrote that the EPA has “very significant concerns” about how the Sabal Trail pipeline could threaten the Floridan aquifer and directly impact 1,255 acres of wetlands and the sensitive Green Swamp in Florida. “The proposed pipeline is expected by the EPA to have significant impacts to karst areas in the State of Georgia and Florida and represents a potential threat to groundwater (and surface waters) resources,” Militscher wrote. “The EPA is requesting that the FERC develop an alternative route to avoid impacts to the Floridan Aquifer and its sensitive and vulnerable karst terrain.” During a lawsuit brought by WWALS Watershed Coalition to stop the Florida Department of Environmental Protection from issuing Sabal Trail an environmental resources permit, the state agency joined the company in blocking the EPA report from being submitted to the court. Florida Bulldog, an online media organization, reports Gov. Rick Scott has made several investments in energy companies, including $53,000 in Spectra Energy stock in a blind trust in 2013. That same year, he signed two bills to speed up permitting for Sabal Trail, and his five appointees on the Florida Public Service Commission gave it unanimous approval to be the state’s third major natural gas pipeline, according to Florida Bulldog. Two months after the initial letter from the EPA, the federal agency reversed course in another letter, this time from the EPA’s James D. Giattina to the Army Corps of Engineers. He brought the 1,255 acres impacted down to 882, with 235 acres of wetlands permanently affected. “The EPA believes the applicants have chosen a path that avoids many of the most sensitive areas and demonstrates the karst areas in the path of the pipeline are unlikely to be significantly affected,” Giattina writes. Representatives for the project say the current natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Florida isn’t enough to meet increased demands for natural gas, though Quarterman points out FPL’s 10-year plan published last September says the state doesn’t need a new electricity resource until 2024. 12

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 1-7, 2017

Alexander City Compressor Station

Mark Woodall, legislative chair for the Georgia chapter of the Sierra Club, says he believes FPL and Duke’s need for natural gas comes from their refusal to look at other energy alternatives, like solar. Last year, Florida’s major utility companies were behind Amendment 1, a solar-energy ballot initiative that critics said was “deceptive” and would have limited rooftop solar expansion. “But it’s not the end until the pipe is laid,” Quarterman says. “Investors could still pull out and the whole thing would fall apart. This fight isn’t over yet.” Rogers says he continues to fight to “finish the drill” and hope for future FERC reform. “It doesn’t matter if you’re losing because you’re playing to win your reputation and to live to fight another day,” he says. “The pathway to victory is exceedingly narrow, but we’re not quitters. It’s not over until it’s over.”

pectra is taking the final steps in Florida before it turns on the pipeline this June, though environmental advocates and an Orlando eminent domain lawyer are putting up some roadblocks. V. Nicholas Dancaescu, with the Orlando corporate firm GrayRobinson, says 41 of about 100 of his clients are still involved in eminent domain lawsuits with Sabal Trail. The pipeline crosses through 12 Florida counties, including Alachua, Hamilton, Suwannee, Gilchrist, Levy, Marion, Sumter, Citrus, Lake, Polk, Orange and Osceola counties. (In those last two, the pipeline comes down the Four Corners area close to Disney property and crosses Interstate 4 near the Reunion Resort Golf Course. Another proposed pipeline connects the compressor station near Reunion past Kissimmee and into the Hunter’s Creek area.) “In Florida, it’s going through quite a few spaces that are virgin land,” he says. “They’ve never had a pipeline. It’s just a beautiful rural piece of property.” Dancaescu says most of the easements are across a section at the end of the property, but others cut across diagonally, creating three different pieces on the property. He adds that about 10 to 15 of his clients are in the “blast zone” of the pipeline, which aside from being dangerous could devalue a house. “Our primary focus isn’t stopping the project,” Dancaescu says. “We want to make sure our clients are compensated fully and fairly. Some of them have been offered $1,600 for the easement, and when the time comes to sell the

( ! property, a buyer might want $75,000 to $100,000 off the home because of the pipeline.” The fight against Sabal Trail hasn’t reached Central Florida like it has in some parts of North Florida, particularly Gainesville and Live Oak. Before the project even began drilling under the Santa Fe River, local springs that depend on the Floridan aquifer were already suffering from various issues, says Pam Smith, president of Our Santa Fe River. The water extraction required for agriculture, golf courses, development and drinking from the aquifer has reduced the amount of water going to the springs. The flow has also been depleted by pollution from nitratebased fertilizers and septic tanks. Still, Smith says the small nonprofit did its best to make noise about the Sabal Trail pipeline before it began drilling under the river. “We didn’t have enough manpower to drum up support for the Santa Fe,” she says. “We really had trouble getting traction until Standing Rock made people realize this was happening everywhere.” Three months ago, activists set up a camp on the property of an Our Santa Fe River member, where they’ve vowed to stay close to the pipeline.

“Have you ever been down the Santa Fe?” Smith asks. “It’s beautiful. I’m looking at it right now. It speaks to me, and I need to help it get through this and live longer.” Back at the protest near the Suwannee River, the day is ending and police have detained no one so far, though some activists will be arrested later that week for another blockade. Organizer Panagioti Tsolkas remembers being one of the people arrested for blocking the project by the Santa Fe River. He says he’s trying his best not to get arrested again because he doesn’t want to miss the birth of his child. Tsolkas says he’s fought against other Florida developments before that were “done deals” and at the last minute have been reversed, so he’s hopeful that can also happen with Sabal Trail. “Demonstrations like this put the companies on notice,” he says. “It creates the space for the potential to stop the project. A judge could pull the plug on the project and send them back to the drawing board based on the environmental impact statement. But in order for a judge to feel like really there’s the need to do that, I think it needs to be in the spotlight. If we don’t fight it at all, we don’t win.”

adly, my chickens were all killed by a raccoon,” writer Susan Orlean – a veteran of The New Yorker and a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow – tells me from her Los Angeles home. “In reaction to that, I found homes for the rest of my poultry. It was obvious that the coop was not secure, because this raccoon had broken in.” When you commit the faux pas of inquiring about this witty wordsmith’s deceased pets (yes, she was emotionally attached to her chickens), you’re in for a dose of quirkiness and deadpan humor that you might not otherwise expect. And that’s exactly what makes Orlean’s creative nonfiction so compelling. As a selfproclaimed tourist of the human condition, she has the knack for finding persuasive and endearingly amusing stories even under the most remote, unturned stones. Over her 30-year career at The New Yorker (she became a staff writer in 1992, after contributing for five years), Orlean has crafted stories about taxidermy, a Twitter prankster, captive whales, papaya stands, an ordinary 10-year-old boy, Rin Tin Tin and mules in the military (did you know that the offspring of a male horse and a female donkey is called a hinny?), among many, many other subjects. A keen observer, she positions herself in a peculiar sort of angle between curious observer and intrusive insider, from which she can report with accuracy and audacity, riding alongside her subject within the flow of the narrative, while often revealing her own presence and offbeat commentary along the way. “If you look at the tradition of oral storytelling, you have an individual telling a story and it’s very clear that they’re your guide and that they’re perhaps sharing their subjective perspective, but the story itself is very intact as a factual thing,” Orlean says. “The real challenge is getting that on the page, but the tone of it is very familiar. It’s really the way we talk to each other, and the more you can reproduce that on the page, the more natural and believable it is.” Having gotten her start in alternative newsweeklies – she worked at the Boston Phoenix, since folded but “a fantastic training ground for young writers” – Orlean has been recalcitrant toward the norms of typical journalism since her post-college days in Portland, Oregon. “In the weeklies I worked for, there was a real excitement about trying to do work that was original; because we had the daily paper that covered the news of the world, it meant that we could make choices about what we wanted to write about, and have a little more imagination and be more enterprising,” she says. “At the same time you had the chance to develop stories a little more than you might at a daily.” One of her notable New Yorker features leads off, “If I were a bitch, I’d be in love


with Biff Truesdale.” When she finally Fellows, among other categories of litermakes explicit, a couple of paragraphs ary luminaries.

BY SETH KUBERSKY ACCIO HOGWARTS UNIFORM! COSPLAYERS WAVE WANDS AT UNIVERSAL | PHOTO BY SETH KUBERSKY

Twenty years ago this coming

June, J.K. Rowling published the debut novel in her Harry Potter series, and the world of literary fantasy changed forever. In the two decades since, I’ve read and reread all the books, watched and purchased the films, attended the grand openings of three Wizarding World attractions, and consumed approximately 728 cups of delicious Butterbeer – which, at the newly boosted price of $6.99 apiece, could have covered a used car. At this point, I’d be forgiven for feeling a bit burnt out on the Boy Who Lived. But after a week in which the Death Eaters seem to have taken control of D.C., the idea of returning to a universe in which people of all colors – be they Gryffindor red, Hufflepuff yellow, Ravenclaw blue, even Slytherin green – can band together and successfully resist a xenophobic autocrat seems not merely appealingly escapist, but absolutely essential.

MESSAGE OF INCLUSION

Thankfully, Universal Orlando’s 2017 Celebration of Harry Potter arrived just in time to provide some much-needed inspiration. At the exact same moment on Friday evening that outrage was erupting around the world over President Orange’s exclusionary executive order, fans of Rowling’s saga were sending an opposing message of inclusion by peaceably assembling at Universal Studios Florida’s Music Plaza, as the three-day event’s openingnight ceremony climaxed in a blizzard of magical confetti. I’m sure most of the robe-clad attendees waving their wands in the frigid air that night didn’t have Potter’s political subtext at the forefronts of their minds, but it certainly didn’t escape the film stars in attendance. Returning actors Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Warwick Davis (Flitwick/Griphook) were joined this year

When Death Eaters seem to have taken control of D.C., the Wizarding World’s theme of banding together to resist an autocrat seems not escapist, but essential by Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), who quickly claimed the “best unvarnished interviewee” crown formerly held by Evanna “Luna Lovegood” Lynch. When I asked during a private media Q&A how his villainous character would respond to America’s new chief executive, Isaacs quipped, “I think Lucius would have been all for him. He would have put on a white pillowcase and charged up the hill behind him.” Isaacs went on to connect Rowling’s themes with International Holocaust Remembrance Day (Jan. 27), elaborating that Malfoy was “a very recognizable racist and eugenicist who’s acting out of fear, and thinking that the past was a better time. … You don’t need to look too far without making cheap points to find politicians standing on those platforms. Those issues are never more relevant than today.”

WHY ONLY ONE WEEKEND?

It’s tempting to cynically dismiss the commercialism of last weekend’s event, with attendees waiting hours to enter soundstages showcasing corporate partners (Scholastic, Warner Bros., Pottermore, et al.) and purchase exclusive souvenirs; $70 limited edition wands sold out swiftly. But if anything, Universal is probably leaving money on the table by confining their annual Potter confab to a single weekend, limiting the sales of VIP packages and including most of the

events with regular admission. By contrast, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has revived their formerly free Star Wars Weekends as an extra-cost event, selling $129 tickets to the after-hours party before confirming which cast members are attending. Last weekend’s attendance at Universal would at least seem to justify expanding the Celebration to multiple weekends. Hopefully before the next Celebration comes around, Universal will have begun performances of the long-rumored but yetunconfirmed nighttime show on Hogwarts Castle. Trees around the structure were recently slashed, presumably to clear the way for video projections. I had hoped Universal would officially announce it (or a Hogsmeade holiday entertainment like they have at Universal Studios Japan) during the Celebration, but the lack of Orlando updates can be forgiven, considering the resort had just set two big grand openings only days before. Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon debuts April 6, followed by the Volcano Bay water park’s grand opening May 25. For a sneak peek, you can now visit Fallon’s “Tonight Shop” and buy a $40 pack of “Thank You Notes” notecards; sadly, the $90 adult-sized “Hashtag the Panda” suits are already out of stock. I’ve been in and out of various fandom cults for most of my life – from Jedi junkie and Trekker to otaku and Rocky Horror performer – and have found magicobsessed Muggles to be more welcoming and socially aware than most. Whether they’re graciously posing in their immaculate cosplay creations (some of which, Warwick Davis admitted, were “better than the ones we had”) or organizing an impromptu tribute to actor John Hurt outside Ollivanders wand shop on the day after his passing, Potter fans remain one clan I don’t mind being crammed into a theme park with. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

NEW, NOW, NEXT:

ORLANDO RESTAURANTS TO WATCH FOR IN 2017

BY FAI YAZ KARA

W

e, the food-conscious, restaurant-going public of Orlando, fancy ourselves a sophisticated lot, don’t we? Coming off a banner year for restaurant quality (and quantity), we just can’t seem to get enough. We want more hip independent restos; more gastronomic bombast from Disney; more doughnuts, izakayas, poke bowls and veg-forward entrees. We expect a painterly technique in plating; artistry in interior design; and service devoid of eye-rolls. We can revel equally in scenes both run-down and soigné, but we demand excellence on the plate. We might be trend laggards vis-à-vis the rest of the world, but we’ve become discerning gastronomes in this local Restaurant Golden Age. So what’s in the cards for 2017? If this list of new restaurant openings is any indication, more glitz and, we hope, more brilliance.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 19

BEM BOM ON CORRINE

WHAT: Portuguese fare with French and Mexican influences is what made the Bem Bom food truck a popular draw, and it’ll do the same when chef Francisco “Chico” Mendonça opens his brick-and-mortar operation in Audubon Park. A complete gut of the former BB&T Bank building has caused delays, but when Bem Bom opens, it, along with Kadence and Domu, will anchor the Audubon Park dining scene. WHEN: Opening summer 2017 WHERE: 3101 Corrine Drive, 321-236-2660, bembomfood.com

BIG KAHUNA'S ISLAND STYLE BOWLS

WHAT: Poke bowls are all the rage, and this Winter Springs outfit brings a taste of the islands (Hawaiian Islands, that is) to Winter Springs next month with the requisite ahi tuna, salmon and yellowtail, in addition to seasonal offerings of fresh catch based on local suppliers. WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: 1450 Tuskawilla Road, Winter Springs, 407-310-7301, bigkahunasbowls.com

CIRCO ORLANDO

WHAT: With a retractable glass roof and a $3.5 million renovation budget, Circo (from the same folks behind the famed Le Cirque in New York City) is going balls-out Dubai on International Drive. The menu of pricey upscale Tuscan fare will make Circo one of those restaurants gastronomes run away to, or run away from. Exciting!

WHEN: Opening summer 2017 WHERE: 8050 International Drive, 407-906-7755, circoorl.com

THE DISTRICT: EATERY AND TAP & BARREL

WHAT: Sanford’s dining scene will only get better once this family-owned gastropub in a 107-year-old building opens on West Second Street. Owner Brad Plummer and stepson Chris Mullen, both culinary school grads, will table a menu Plummer describes as “new American eclectic” (read Mediterranean- and Asian-inflected dishes) with cocktails being crafted by chief mixologist Charles Stafford. Plummer’s wife, Anne McNamara, will run the business side of things – we’re told local purveyors will be sourced as often as possible. WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: 112 W. Second St., Sanford, facebook.com/thedistrictsanford

DOMU

WHAT: Seats were hard to come by when this ramen/pan-Asian joint opened late last year in the old Txokos space in the East End

20

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 1-7, 2017

orlandoweekly.com

Market, and they still are. A slick beverage program keeps the cocktail crowd content, but don’t think about ordering ramen at the bar – splashy slurping is frowned on there. WHEN: Open now WHERE: 3201 Corrine Drive, 407-960-1228, domufl.com

THE EDISON

WHAT: It may be a tamed-down version of the Los Angeles original, but this postindustrial-themed eatery will still blend plenty of science, art and “world-class live entertainment” into its surroundings at Disney Springs. (In L.A., that entertainment includes live 1920s-style jazz, aerial silks and burlesque performances.) Our sincere hope is that the food and cocktails will be just as inventive. WHEN: Opening fall 2017 WHERE: Disney Springs, edisondowntown.com

GYU-KAKU JAPANESE BBQ

WHAT: The super-popular yakiniku chain gives cook-it-yourself barbecue enthusiasts plenty of meats, seafood and vegetables from which to choose, but even better is that their smokeless roasters have a downdraft system to ensure you don’t leave the restaurant smelling like the meats you just grilled. WHEN: Open now WHERE: 7858 Turkey Lake Road, 407-613-5056, gyu-kaku.com

THE HALAL GUYS

WHAT: Their gyros, chicken and rice platters, and falafel sandwiches have New Yorkers addicted (and dominate tourists’ Instagram feeds); now they’re taking the rest of the country by storm. Soon enough, patrons at the Alafaya Trail outpost will understand why folks queued up outside the humble food cart at 53rd and Sixth for hours. I get the sense many a UCF student will be late for class. WHEN: Opening spring 2017 WHERE: 688 N. Alafaya Trail, thehalalguys.com

HUNGER STREET TACOS

WHAT: In their soft-opening week, the lines out the door were reminiscent of the days when 4 Rivers Smokehouse occupied the space, but this taqueria is generating the sort of buzz that will all but guarantee its success. That and their tacos campechanos, squash-blossom quesadillas, and esquites with bone marrow broth reduction. WHEN: Open now WHERE: 2103 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park, 407-617-1140, facebook.com/hungerstreettacos

KADENCE

WHAT: Arguably the most anticipated restaurant opening of 2017, the long-awaited omakase house by the founders of Kappo at East End Market will be a second home to Orlando’s food cognoscenti. The 20-seat resto will also feature a sake bar offering what’s promised to be the finest selection in the city. WHEN: Opening spring 2017 WHERE: 1809 E. Winter Park Road, kadenceorlando.com

LUKE'S KITCHEN + BAR

WHAT: Brandon McGlamery’s bustling new Maitland boîte on the old Steak & Ale site had locals salivating in anticipation, and opening hasn’t stemmed the flow one bit. Like McGlamery’s other offspring, Luma on Park and Prato, Luke’s sources seasonally and responsibly, but the approachable menu of “classic American cuisine” gets imaginative with dishes like snapper ceviche, rotisserie chicken and prime rib.

WHEN: Open now WHERE: 640 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, 407-674-2400, facebook.com/eatatlukes

MAESTRO CUCINA NAPOLETANA

WHAT: Local restaurateur Rosario Spagnolo (TerraMia Ristorante, TerraMia Brick Oven Pizza & Trattoria) paired up with fellow Neapolitan Antonio Martino to bring proper Neapolitan-style pizza to the good folks of Park Avenue. While the dazzling Ferrari-red Marra Forni oven is clearly visible from the open kitchen, don’t let it blind you into forgetting to sample some classic fare of the Campania region.

WHEN: Open now WHERE: 528 S. Park Ave., Winter Park, 407-335-4548, maestrocucinanapoletana.com

MARKET TO TABLE CUISINE

When alFresco moved out of the historic Roper Building, the good folks of Winter Garden didn’t have to wait long for a worthy replacement to move in. Chef Ryan Freelove, who had two stints under Scott Hunnell at Victoria & Albert’s, wowed them at farmers’ markets with his bone broths, compound butters and soups, and he’ll undoubtedly wow them on Plant Street with his seasonal menu of modern American fare. WHAT:

WHEN: Open now WHERE: 146 W. Plant St., Winter Garden, 407-395-9871, market2table.com

MESA 21

After all the construction delays, we’re still taking a “good things come to those who wait” attitude towards this lakeside resto promising “the most authentic Mexican food in America.” We know WHAT:

tortillas will be handmade on-site, and trompo tacos like al pastor and sirloin will be shaved off a vertical spit. More reason to believe: Costras will be offered, as will a tequila menu “second to none.” WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: 1414 N. Orange Ave., mesa21.com

MEZA MEDITERRANEAN GRILL

WHAT: Nazih Sebaali, owner of the venerable and now-closed Café Annie, is bringing his vaunted falafel and Lebanese staples to Baldwin Park. The fine dining kebab joint with full bar will sit next door to Seito – one of the best Japanese/sushi spots in town – so here’s hoping some of Seito’s brilliance rubs off on the new kid in the neighborhood.

WHEN: Opening April 2017 WHERE: 1776 Jake St., mezaorlando.com

MIDICI

WHAT: Kissimmee gets a taste of the California-based Neapolitan pizza chain, but don’t roll your eyes just yet. The two handmade ovens from Naples blister pizzas out in 90 seconds; the Marra Forni “Vittoria” flywheel slices prosciutto with extreme precision; and the stunning Victoria Arduino “Athena” espresso machine pumps out the perfect cup of coffee. Don’t let the “chain” appellation chafe.

WHEN: Open now WHERE: 720 Centerview Blvd., Kissimmee, 407-201-3824, mymidici.com

NONNO'S RISTORANTE ITALIANO

WHAT: Clearly local restaurateur Stefano LaCommare didn’t take very nicely to retirement. The respected chef ditched his golf clubs in favor of an apron, choosing to help son Leonardo open this new seafood-focused Sicilian joint in Altamonte. I suppose you can take the man out of the restaurant, but you can’t take the restaurant out of the man. WHEN: Open now WHERE: 1140 E. Altamonte Drive, Altamonte Springs, 407-260-8900, nonnositalianrestaurant.com

OMELET BAR

WHAT: Founded by University of Central Florida alum Tarek Kanso, this breakfast joint near the UCF campus allows patrons to build their own omelets, frittatas, waffles and pancakes, or pick from a sizable selection of faves. A “flight” of chicken & waffles has got to be a first. If brekkie ain’t your thing, lunch items like burgers, salads and sandwiches are offered, including a host of smaller-portion dishes called “munchkins.” WHEN: Open now WHERE: 11250 Strategy Blvd., 407-704-1597, omeletbar.com

ORLANDO MEATS

WHAT: Edgar Massoni’s full-service butcher shop and fast-casual eatery can’t open soon enough in Ivanhoe Village, as far as we’re concerned, even if it’ll just serve breakfast and lunch. Massoni has fostered relationships with local farmers and producers over the years, so you can bet the meat will come from animals that are fed natural diets, are ethically and pasture-raised, and are hormone- and antibiotic-free.

BY FAIYAZ KARA

OPENINGS Sno Tea Caffe, featuring Taiwanese shaved ice desserts, has opened near UCF in the University Commons plaza. A few doors down, look for Spice Indian Grill to open in the coming weeks … Grown, a USDA Organic Certified fast-food restaurant by former NBA star Ray Allen and his wife, Shannon, will open a standalone location inside the Walmart Supercenter in Lake Nona later this month … Ben & Jerry’s has opened on Park Avenue in Winter Park … Mather’s Social Gathering, a craft cocktail bar, will open downtown at Pine and Magnolia sometime this March.

WHEN: Opening spring 2017 WHERE: 728 Virginia Drive, 407-598-0700, orlandomeats.com

PADDLEFISH

WHAT: After undergoing a multimillion-dollar bow-to-stern renovation, the Empress Lily reopens as a contemporary seafood restaurant in Disney Springs with a swish interior that’ll erase any memory of Fulton’s Crab House, though expect to see Fulton’s faves like lobster corn dogs, Florida stone crab, and Alaskan king and queen crab. A rooftop lounge will stay open until 2 a.m. serving from a late-night menu, a DIY fish boil menu will also be served, and of course: weekend brunch.

NEWS/EVENTS Norman’s hosts an eight-course Moet Hennessey Wine Maker’s Dinner Tuesday, Feb. 7. Cost is $150. On Feb. 8, they’ll host a five-course Chateau Montelena wine dinner.

Disney’s top chefs headline this dine-anddrink-around that’s fast become one of the fave events of the local culinary cognoscenti. Tickets are $175 and can be purchased at edibleorlando.com.

WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: Disney Springs, paddlefishrestaurant.com

PHAN'S

WHAT: South Orange Blossom Trail got a boost to its restaurant scene when this legit pan-Asian joint by local B-boy Tung Fu, of MF Kidz, opened this month. The menu of Vietnamese, Japanese, Thai and Korean dishes, along with, yes, poke bowls (we can’t get enough), have made “Phanatics” out of many. WHEN: Open now WHERE: 9741 S. Orange Blossom Trail, 407-704-6399, phansorlando.com

PLANET HOLLYWOOD OBSERVATORY

WHAT: One of the more gigantic restaurants in Disney Springs chose to ride the bus to Flavortown by having polarizing schlock-jock of cookery Guy Fieri develop their burger and sandwich menu. If you’re a fan of the Donkey Sauce – or of massive boozy milkshake concoctions – Planet Hollywood Observatory is likely already on your must-visit list. If not, Disney Springs has no shortage of dining options.

sprawling food-and-fun complex, and James and Julie Petrakis (Ravenous Pig, Cask & Larder, Swine & Sons) were a natural choice. The pair will bring wood-fired, smoked and grilled Southern goodies to Disney Springs, as well as local brews (including Cask & Larder draughts), wine and cocktails. WHEN: Opening spring 2017 WHERE: Disney Springs, politepig.com

REEL FISH COASTAL KITCHEN

WHAT: This seafood venture by former Hard Rock International VP and COO Fred Thimm will transform the old Ravenous Pig space and infuse it with a relaxed surfer vibe. Brah, we’re totally looking forward to the seasonal and sustainable seafood preparations and their “high-end fish camp” fare: Diners can expect triggerfish, sheephead, hogfish and other local species, plus a raw bar. WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: 1234 N. Orange Ave., Winter Park, 407-543-3474, reelfishcoastal.com

REYES MEZCALERIA

WHAT: Taking over the Citrus Restaurant space in the North Quarter, Jason Chin’s Mexican resto will feature regional Mexican fare, but with chef Austin Boyd (Seito, Osprey Tavern) overseeing the menu, you can bet dishes will be as impressive as the interior design inspired by Tulum in Quintana Roo. Naturally, a vast selection of mezcal and tequila will round out the offerings. WHEN: Opening March 2017 WHERE: 821 N. Orange Ave., reyesmex.com

TEAK MAITLAND

WHAT: There’s arguably no better place for a burger and a beer than this popular MetroWest joint, and the folks in Maitland will absolutely eat (and drink) this place up when it opens in the former Ran-Getsu location. After a thorough gutting of the space, the new Teak will be made to look like the original. WHEN: Opening April 2017 WHERE: 901 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, teakorlando.com

VALKYRIE DOUGHNUTS

WHAT: Celine Duvoisin’s spinoff of her crazy-popular Valhalla Bakery has a clean, minimalist and wonderfully Norse feel, but the lucky buggers out by UCF will jostle and prod in line for one thing, and one thing only – doughnuts. Ridiculously good vegan doughnuts. And vegan gelato. And doughnut ice-cream sandwiches. OK, three things. WHEN: Opening February 2017 WHERE: 12226 Corporate Blvd., instagram.com/valkyriedoughnuts

WINE BAR GEORGE

WHAT: Master Sommelier and beloved wine expert George Miliotes’ 210-seat Disney Springs wine bar will take on the look of a “winemaker’s home estate” and offer up more than 100 selections by the bottle and glass in a range of varietals, vintages and prices.

THE HONEYMOON T BY JESSICA BRYCE YOUNG

hey say necessity is the mother of invention, though it’s hard to consider a new cocktail an actual necessity. But as I leafed through Jim Meehan’s gorgeous PDT Cocktail Book (Sterling Epicure, 2011) last week, looking for Remix inspiration, I chanced on an entry I’d never noticed before: Meehan’s adaptation of the Honeymoon Cocktail from a pre-Prohibition recipe. Feeling more than a little miserable about the dismal state of affairs in the world outside my windows, I wasn’t really in the mood to mix up a fancy cocktail. For those inclined to seek solace in alcohol, these days would seem to call for guzzling rotgut straight from the bottle. But my deadline approached, and needs must. The Honeymoon sounded sweet, both as a concept (honeymoon period, anyone?) and as a confection. I had a mental picture of what I’d change, how I’d serve it – I even sliced up a lovely Honeycrisp apple for a garnish – but when I went to my bar, the bottle of Laird’s Applejack I remembered having wasn’t there to greet me. (Used up in a holiday party punch? Maybe.) Nor did I have curaçao or any type of dry orange liqueur, nor a bottle of Bénédictine. Lemons, I had. But that was it.

This feeling of “don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” seems like it might soon become a familiar one. So, I improvised. In this case that meant swapping out every ingredient except the lemon juice, resulting in a cocktail that is perhaps not strictly a Remix, but is extremely drinkable. The world is full of gin and lemon cocktails, so I went for a lesser-used bottle as my base spirit: Zubrówka bison-grass vodka, in solidarity with our Polish friends who elected their own right-wing strongman just months before we did. Instead of sweet orange curaçao, I added a grapefruit liqueur, a balance of sugar and acerbic citrus rind. And in place of the honeyed lavender-vanilla overtones of Bénédictine, I used Chartreuse – the two liqueurs are both classed as herbal medicinals, but Chartreuse, with its astringent, flinty bite, really lives up to the “medicinal.” In small measures, though, it’s brilliant at grounding almost any fanciful mix of flavors. This Honeymoon, instead of a warm, apple-y, brown-liquor loving cup, is a cool, clear, slightly bitter quaff. Don’t be bitter, you say? I think holding onto a hint of bitterness is essential, if you want to enjoy what’s still sweet.

THE STUBBORN MULE

The folks who brought us RusTeak are behind this casual Thornton Park eatery where dishes veer toward the weighty, and beverages toward the crafty. Fried Wisconsin cheese curds and equally addicting pork belly slicked in an “Asian” sticky sauce make fine starters, while burgers, Reuben tacos, and the catch of the day make fine entrée choices. Ending with a cronut topped with vanilla bean ice cream will only cement your decision to return. Closed Mondays. 100 S. Eola Drive, 407-930-1166; $$$

BULLA GASTROBAR

South Florida Spanish joint serves up some mighty fine tapas and tipples. Chef Felix Plasencia gets it going with marvy croquetas, stellar octopus salad, and pintxos of charcoal-fired cuminmarinated pork. Jamon ibérico de bellota and Leonora cheese are good any time of day. For more substantial plates, consider the seafood paella, arroz marinero cooked with plankton, and the red snapper fired up in a charcoal oven. Torrijas (Spanish-style French toast) drizzled with honey and served with turrón ice cream is our choice to end the meal. Open daily. 110 S. Orlando Ave., Winter Park, 321-214-6120; $$$

TASTE OF YUCATÁN

No-frills Mexican joint serves up a taste of Yucatán cuisine with a grand selection of tacos, salbutes (deep-fried tacos) and panuchos (salbutes stuffed with refried beans), as well as tortas, quesadillas and rice bowls. Fillings you’ll fancy: cochinita pibil, al pastor, barbacoa and vegetarian rajas poblanas. Pollo adobado can be a tad dry, but superb housemade salsas, like tamarind-habañero and salsa macha, counter the effects. Closed Mondays. 1375 S. Semoran Blvd., 407-704-2248; $

BARTACO

Beach-themed taquería fuses Mexican tradition with Latin, Mediterranean and Asian flavors and, for the most part,

does so successfully. Tacos are on the small side, but when corn tortillas are filled with such succulent meats as duck confit in tamarind glaze, rotisserie pork pastor, and soy-, sesame- and sriracha-marinated Angus ribeye topped with kimchi, substance tends to trump size. Vegetarian options (falafel, cauliflower, portobello) abound, but don’t overlook other items like grilled corn rolled in lime, cayenne and cotija. Cocktails please even when desserts don’t wow. Open daily. 7600 Dr. Phillips Blvd., 407-801-8226; $$

EARLS KITCHEN + BAR

As in other cities, Canadian import Earls Kitchen + Bar “unchains the chain” with way-cool interior design, and that verve finds its way into the kitchen as well, with a menu of global greatest hits ranging from bibimbap to poke. English sticky toffee pudding makes a great ending (just ask for more toffee sauce), while an above-average cocktail program keeps it interesting on the libationary front. Open daily (until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). 4200 Conroy Road, 407-345-8260; $$

TENNESSEE TRUFFLE

Southern fare and French technique fuse at chef-owner Nat Russell’s down-home Sanford resto. His biscuits and gravy might be the best in Central Florida, and the same could be said of his maque-choux and creamed corn. Biscuit sandwiches, like the BLT and chicken salad, are wholly satisfying, though be wary of palateshreddingly firm biscuits. A scoop of house-made ice cream (brown butter and buttered popcorn, specifically) is the way to end. Breakfast and lunch only. Closed Sundays and Mondays. 125 W. First St., Sanford, 407-942-3977; $

TEAK NEIGHBORHOOD GRILL

This chill MetroWest hang developed a loyal following for its hefty half-pound burgers and craft brews, and it’s no wonder. Purists can indulge in the “Plain Jane” with American cheese, Bibb lettuce and tomato on a brioche bun, while braver souls can feel the heat with the peppery “Wholey Hell!!!”. There’s even a donut burger for heart haters. Open daily until 2 a.m. 6400 Time Square Ave., 407-313-5111; $$

1921 BY NORMAN VAN AKEN

Reflecting the culinary traditions of Florida old and new, 1921 by Norman Van Aken dazzles with art, decor and menu focusing on the flora and fauna of the Sunshine State, like dumplings filled with mousse of spiny lobster and rock shrimp in a country ham dashi. Pan-roasted duck breast with mole poblano is staggeringly good. The tres leches popsicle is poetry on a plate. Closed Mondays. 142 E. Fourth Ave., Mount Dora, 352-385-1921; $$$$ n

No matter how much positivity and selfconfidence shines back at you every time you look in the mirror, there’s always that One Little Thing about your body that, given the time and tools, you’d love to change. Maybe you’ve been eating healthy, exercising regularly and cutting back on your vices, but you still can’t make that Little Thing go away. For some, aesthetic procedures are the answers to problems that seem unsolvable by diet and exercise alone. The saying goes, “if you look good, you’ll feel good,” and sometimes a little personal investment in ourselves can make all the difference. Need a mid-week pick-meup? “Treat yourself to a brand-new pair of jeans!” Think a fresh fade will put some pep in your step? “Book a seat at the barber’s, man!” Today, many people, both men and women, are adding aesthetic treatments, including Botox injections, body-sculpting or laser treatments, to that list of viable personal investments that make them look and feel better. Over the past decade or so, the efficacy of these treatments has become more accepted and taboos once associated with them have all but melted away. For thousands of Americans, these procedures are sometimes that next step towards what we all ultimately strive for: being truly comfortable in our own skin.

manager at Winter Park Laser, thinks 2017 could be the field’s biggest year yet. “It’s the most beautiful thing,” Valencia says. Valencia has done countless consultations to help patients understand what’s possible through aesthetic procedures, particularly Botox injections. “It’s one of those things that I personally enjoy. I watch the progression of people’s skin—really transform right before your eyes. We’re here to guide you in the right direction, so that you’re successful with what you want to achieve.” Valencia says popular culture has done a fantastic job of misinforming the public on what exactly Botox does. Images of inflexible, artificially plump cheeks often come to mind, but that’s not how most Botox injection sessions go. “A lot of people watch the Housewives and other shows, where people are overdone, and that’s the last thing some people want,” Valencia says. “So there’s still that slight bit of stigma because people aren’t educated. If you want that look, yes, that’s something we can provide you, but at the end of the day, we’re not here to alter your appearance. We’re here to enhance something you already have and to do little, minor tweaks.” What conservative Botox injections actually do is cause our facial muscles to slightly weaken, which reduces the constant muscle


contractions that lead to fine wrinkles as we age. Did you catch that? As we age? Another misconception is that Botox injections are only helpful in treating wrinkles after they’ve formed, but pre-emptive Botox can dramatically increase its effectiveness. “People are getting Botox younger and younger because it’s preventative, so you don’t get wrinkles as you age,” Valencia says. “Now that’s not saying that if you started later in life, you won’t get those same results. A lot of our clients that come in, even in their 40s and 50s, they’ll notice that the fine-line wrinkles are starting to diminish.” Another aesthetic procedure breaking into the mainstream is body-sculpting treatment. People have been searching for years for the procedure to help lose that last stubborn lump or crease—turns out it’s been available all along. Four different laser lights heat, and melt, those stubborn fat deposits over a 25-minute session. Body-sculpting is remarkably effective at removing stretch marks and cellulite, which happen to be some of patients’ most cited concerns, and works almost instantaneously. “With our body-sculpting clients, they’ll come in and say ‘I work out, I eat really well, but I just have this extra fatty pocket that CONTINUED ON PAGE 36

ly within the past couple years—they’re becoming comfortable seeking treatment like Botox. It’s not as ‘taboo’ as it was years ago.” And that’s the glorious thing about aesthetic treatment: everyone gets something out of it, from grateful patients to gracious practitioners like Valencia. “We help them over a hurdle like ‘I’ve always worn a one-piece,’ or ‘I’ve been really

self-conscious about that,’” Valencia says. “To hear people feel that confident in themselves and physically see the results—it’s a really good feeling.”

The Eagle Huntress

Rings

BY STE V E S C H N E I D E R OPENING THIS WEEK: Rings The Ring was one of the few respectable American remakes of a foreign horror flick. As a matter of fact, it was so scary that it gave me a temporary phobia of just about everything circular, including hula hoops and libertarian logic. Fourteen years later, I guess some sort of reboot is in order, although revisiting the tale of the killer videotape at this late date raises its own set of challenges – like appealing to a teenage audience that has no idea what in the hell a videotape is in the first place. The gist of the plot is that our VHS MacGuffin has become an object of fetishization to an obsessed cult, which is sort of like finding out there’s an offshoot of Scientology that worships pogs. But get this: Careful watchers discover that there’s another sinister video hidden within the sinister video! Yep, it’s like a murderous Easter egg on a DVD. What’s a DVD, you ask? Precisely. (PG-13) The Space Between Us As further proof that Gary Oldman will do anything, here he is providing adult supervision in a tale that’s been described as a “Romeo and Juliet in space.” The young protagonist is a fella who was born on Mars to a single mother who promptly died, leaving her offspring to reach the age of 16 having met only 14 other human beings. (You know, just like Stacey Dash!) His love interest is a girl living in Colorado but named Tulsa, with whom he strikes up an online relationship. In place of disapproving parents is the troubling detail that Mars Boy can’t live

on Earth, because his sensitive organs couldn’t take it without going splooey. Wait a minute, what’s Gary Oldman doing in all this? Watching the movie head for its fifth scheduled release date and hoping the check doesn’t bounce. (PG-13) ALSO PLAYING: The Eagle Huntress Morgan Spurlock and Daisy

Ridley executive-produced this documentary about a Kazakh girl living in Mongolia who dreams of becoming her nation’s first female eagle hunter. (Speaking of which, where’s that Falconer movie, Will Forte?) The doc’s exciting climax will have the audience rooting for the young woman and her eaglet to catch and kill their first fox. And then they’ll all go back to bitching about A Dog’s Purpose. (G) Kaabil In one of two Indian imports that got a simultaneous and very quiet release last week, the rape of a blind woman inspires her also-blind husband to seek revenge. Originally developed under the working title Isabelle Huppert Is a Big Ol’ Wuss. (NR) Raees That other Indian flick I alluded to is a crime drama set against the backdrop of Prohibition-era Gujarat. The New York Times praised the movie’s suspense quotient while opining that it probably had too many songs. Hey Ben Affleck, that must have been what went wrong with Live by Night! (NR)

in All the Wrong Ways. The soft-spoken multi-instrumentalist knows the formula when putting together a gripping yarn. “You don’t have to be miserable to write songs,” Watkins explains. “That’s something a lot of people believe, but it’s not true. You need conflict and resolution. I think that’s the way it’s always been in entertainment. I think that’s the way it will always be.” A great deal of the album was inspired by Watkins’ personal tumult. “It’s relatable,” Watkins says. “Everybody has ups and downs. I think the fans who support me relate to what I wrote for this album.” It helped that Watkins, who performs Wednesday at the Plaza Live, wanted to challenge herself: “I had to take a step forward with this one since I didn’t want to be a complacent musician. Everything can’t just be all right. We have to strive for much more. I’ve felt like this for years, well before this crazy and aggressive presidential election.” Give Watkins credit for taking some chances while making her latest album. She could have gone the route traveled by many of her peers, but she wanted to take a chance. “I could have just stayed in my comfort zone,” Watkins offers. “But why do the same thing again and again? I grappled with the personal tumult in my life and just went in another direction, which I think is healthy.” Watkins straddles the line between bluegrass and indie folk, moving from bittersweet ballads to rollicking barnburners. “It’s certainly a balancing act,” she agrees. It helps when you have ace tunesmith/ multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Beyoncé) around. “He’s such an amazing musician,” Watkins enthuses. “He just kept turning up so we decided to keep him. He definitely made an impact on this album. I’m really happy with how this album turned out. I’m in a really good place as a solo artist.” So where does that leave Nickel Creek, Watkins’ initial band, which formed in 1989 and went on hiatus in 2007? “Well, we did get back together [in 2014] and all is good,” Watkins clarifies. “But since we got back together, things are different. Nickel Creek is no longer the focal point of our lives. It will never be the focal point. I’m sure we’ll do stuff together and that’s all good. But when I look at the future, Nickel Creek will never be everything to us like it once was. Nickel Creek will just be one of the projects that we do. In the future, I want to challenge myself as much as possible.”

As much of my coverage this

month shows, including below, Orlando has an active and informed alternativerap scene. So the Feb. 4 screening of The World Has No Eyedea (Enzian Theater, 12:30 p.m.) should be of particular interest. It’ll be the Florida premiere of the documentary on the prismatic life and untimely 2010 death of venerated underground rapper Eyedea, the Rhymesayers artist best known as collaborator to the amazing DJ Abilities. Essential for true hip-hop heads.

THE BEAT

The anatomy of a sensation is a mystical thing containing all sort of situational intangibles, not all of which are qualitative. But rap juggernaut Run the Jewels (Jan. 23, the Beacham) are the 24-karat package. From the beginning, it was a lethal union. Its core pillars, hardcore Outkast associate Killer Mike and alt-rap legend El-P, were each paragons of credibility on their own. Anything that starts off with that much intrinsic firepower is kissed by fortune, at least on paper. But the reality is that, once the glitter settles, most supergroups don’t quite equal the sum of their parts. All-star games and star-studded casts consistently prove that true chemistry is more alchemy than arithmetic. That’s what makes Run the Jewels rare. They not only deliver pound for pound, but together they actually punch above their mammoth combined weight. It’s become such an extraordinary thing now that their long-established individual identities have become subordinate to their collective one in short order.

When Run the Jewels took the stage, the Beacham combusted into a jumping inferno and burned like an hour-long detonation.

Across three searing and increasingly focused albums, they’ve honed the combined attack of Killer Mike’s big-boss cadence and El-P’s production genius into the perfect blitzkrieg. Sleek but hard, it’s hard-core power forged by clarified modernist taste into a heat-seeking missile that’s purposeful, locked-in and now as fuck. RTJ’s show was a pretty major stage production. The performance – a torrent of bass, bite and personality – was solid. But there are flashier affairs and more virtuosic performances. Truly exceptional, however, was the white-hot fever of their reception. When they took the stage, the grand hall combusted into a jumping inferno and burned like an hourlong detonation. That reaction to their work, the mass shit-losing fanaticism, was the night’s most victorious and definitive thing. RTJ have a monopoly on the hearts and minds of the cognoscenti, but this isn’t just some cool-kid hipster crush. Under all the hype is pure proof and substance. Though they’ve struck new gold together, these are two artists who’ve hustled in some of the most respectable subterranean frontiers

for years. So even more than the headline of a fresh breakout star, this is the story of the great and true underground getting its shining due. It’s the kind of cosmically just Cinderella story you wish happened more. Well, there’s no more ascendant and unstoppable act in hip-hop right now. And this locomotive is only gaining in velocity and steam. Of the openers, California DJ/producer the Gaslamp Killer was a revelation with a left-field lean and a staggeringly wide palette. From a base of hip-hop and electronic, he sprawled into psych, funk, rock and international. He even went straight nerd by rocking a hip-hop mashup of classic video-game music that lit the house. As scattered as that all sounds, he knows how to kick it harder than his ties to the cerebral L.A. beat scene might suggest, all in a surprising but seamless way that has its own freak logic. When the weirdest act on the bill is the one tasked to get the room up to suitable fever pitch for the hottest act in hip-hop, you just know that he’s gotta be something special. And it was one of the best, most interesting and electrifying DJ performances I’ve seen in a very long time. What’s more, he was topical. Coming only two days after the incredible Women’s March on Washington and the many other allied gatherings across the globe, including the robust one here at Lake Eola, the already powerful throb of his set was punctuated with spoken lines like “The future is feminine” and “Feminine energy will save us all.” It was timely, necessary and made for a set that was as revolutionary in spirit as it was in music. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Dr. Deborah Willis: “Posing Beauty in African American Culture”

Kiss Emoji? MUSIC

Musically and creatively, we find the so-called “shock of the new” to be a very refreshing experience. Music scenes constantly develop and change; new faces and new voices are essential. And this well-curated bill of new and young experimental, noise and left-field electronics projects gives an intimate look at one grouping of possible futures in Orlando music. J.A.S.O.N. is, well, Jason of Shania Pain, stepping out on his own with a set of disorienting pop-cutups and contexts. Loser Boy is DJ Allen Duncan trying his hand at a full noise set. Pulsatile Tinnitus (Kayla Phillips), touring from Nashville, specializes in shattered eardrums via noise walls and creeping tension, while local Joseph Osborne’s Child One project delves more into electronic textures. DJ Deviant Art Heaux promises a “noise/vogue ball/goth set” throughout the night, which is infinitely “music” to our ears. – Matthew Moyer 10 p.m. | Spacebar, 2428 E. Robinson Street | facebook.com/spacebarorlando | $3

ART

The goodness just keeps coming: Related programming around the frankly fabulous group of shows on black art (Posing Beauty at Snap; AfroFantastic, The Black Figure and Reframing the Picture, Reclaiming the Past at Cornell Fine Arts Museum) gracing our city right now continues, with the curator of Snap’s Posing Beauty giving a lecture at Rollins College, site of the other three. Deborah Willis, an NYU professor and photographer in her own right, has plenty to say not only about the documentation of black bodies but also about artists’ responses to the cultural and political climate. Dr. Willis is also the mother of photographer Hank Willis Thomas, who has work in both Posing Beauty and Reframing the Picture. (There’s also a dinner with Willis at Snap Friday, Feb. 3; it was sold out at press time, but if you’ve got an extra couple of hundred bucks and are really motivated to go, check the gallery’s Facebook page to see if there’s a cancellation.) – Jessica Bryce Young 6 p.m. | SunTrust Auditorium, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park | facebook.com/snaporlando | free, reservations required

Sam Flax Wall Project ART

Street artists will deface a local building at a block party today, but the owners at Sam Flax are cool with it. Simultaneously raising awareness on issues Sam Flax deems fit and providing anyone with the chance to see how local street art is produced, this 3-year-old project gives the public a chance to view the murals on the side of the Sam Flax building daily on their commutes as a memory they lived through rather than something to just pass by and observe. Backed by the musical air support of several WPRK (91.5 FM) DJs as well as tasty sustenance provided by Tamale Co., Bad As’s Sandwich, Little Blue Donut and Purple Ocean Superfood Bar, this event has a reputable history of providing the community with one of its more defining eye-grabbers. – Nick Wills 10 a.m.-6 p.m. | Sam Flax of Orlando, 1800 E.

The Coathangers MUSIC

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK

Atlanta’s current Queens of Noise, the Coathangers, had a better 2016 than most, releasing their fifth studio album, Nosebleed Weekend, and going on tour with anarcho-reunion act Refused. But even though the trio seem to be flirting with the edges of the big time, their bratty take on punk rock still retains the sense of humor and who-gives-a-shit attitude that got them to this point in the first place. This show at Will’s Pub should show that off a bit better than the cavernous room at the Beacham, where they last played in town opening on the aforementioned Refused tour. Local punk powerhouse Wet Nurse opens, along with South Florida dirty blues rock duo Killmama. – Thaddeus McCollum with Wet Nurse, Killmama | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N.

Lily Tomlin

Sunday, 5

Gost

COMEDY

It’s hard to oversell Lily Tomlin. The beloved comedian and actress has a résumé that stretches from groundbreaking sketch comedy show Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in (“one ringy-dingy … two ringy-dingy”) through films like Robert Altman’s Nashville and David O. Russell’s I Heart Huckabees, to your parents’ favorite Netflix series, Grace and Frankie. This appearance at the Dr. Phillips Center is being billed as “An Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin,” so expect to revisit some of the characters and sketches that made Tomlin a household name in this once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness an American icon recap her career. – TM 8 p.m. | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $35-$75 MUSIC

Although Super Bowl Sunday is often marked by flowery descriptions of balls and the people who handle them, local literary podcast The Drunken Odyssey is taking the opportunity to forgo any subtlety in this night of erotic poetry and prose. Local writers like Teege Braune, Stephanie Rizzo and host John King take to the mic at Vinyl Arts Bar to read odes to hoo-hahs and thingies – and probably balls, yes. Since the space Vinyl Arts Bar occupies was infamously shut down for prostitution back when it was a “massage parlor” – don’t worry, we hear they steam-cleaned – expect a particularly salacious atmosphere, populated by the Ghosts of Handjobs Past. – TM

Here’s something a little different. Shadowy synthwaver Gost – real name unknown, past involvement in metal bands rumored but not confirmed, dark mystique intact – comes on visually like a cross between a member of Sodom, one of the Ramones and lucha legend La Parka; and sonically like an unholy mélange of Giorgio Moroder’s widescreen Italo productions, John Carpenter’s early two-finger creep soundtracks, zombie Jan Hammer returning to rock one last time, and the proggy occultist excess of Mater Suspiria Vision. And despite nary a guitar in sight, metalheads are eating this shit up – the mixture of metal-friendly imagery (skulls, inverted crosses, demonic creatures) with eerie and dramatic electroscopes definitely wakes something in their (well, “our,” to be fair) lizard-brains. Gost is even playing this year’s most cvlt of metal gatherings, the Maryland Death Fest. Smoke, skeleton masks and extreme arpeggiation; what’s not to love? – MM

Parquet Courts MUSIC

For the past several years, New York quartet Parquet Courts has been making waves through the music world. Building up an impressive discography that started with the low-key release of their debut, American Specialties, Parquet Courts steadily gained attention and buzz. Their sound was immediate and undeniable: jangly guitars, catchy licks, buoyant basslines and the lyrics of band leader Andrew Savage getting so ingrained in your head that you caught yourself humming them during that morning commute or during that awful double shift in the kitchen. With a nod to his previous projects (Wiccans, Teenage Cool Kids), Savage and company released their newest album, Human Performance, last year, full of confident rockers like “Berlin Got Blurry,” “Dust” and the titular single. This album still holds true to the Parquet Courts formula, but with an added twist – the songwriting and lyrics hearken back to Savage’s previous endeavors with Teenage Cool Kids, giving off the vibes of Foreign Lands with certain songs and Denton After Sunset with others. This album takes a step back and lets the band expand into way different styles with their not inconsiderable musical prowess. This will be Parquet Courts’ first show in Orlando, and Savage’s first show in Orlando in years. It should be a good time – bring your dancing shoes, you’re going to need them. – Alex Thomas with Mary Lattimore | 8 p.m. | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org | $16-$18

B Y D A N S AVA G E

I am a 26-year-old heterosexual European man. I have been for four years in a monogamous relationship with my girlfriend. Recently she cheated on me. When she told me what she did, I felt a very strong pain, even stronger than I expected. After a few days of pain, however, I found that the sexual attraction for my girlfriend, instead of decreasing, increased after her adventure. In particular, I am now having a cuckold fantasy. I would like that she tell me everything she did, without sparing any detail, while we have sex, or that we try to play an actual cuckold game where she has sex with someone else in front of me while I give her instructions and tell her exactly what to do. My problem is that I am not sure what her reaction would be if I ask her to play out these fantasies. She feels very guilty and witnessed my pain when she told me she cheated. I fear that talking to her about these fantasies would scare her. I also fear that, as she is feeling guilty, she would say yes, but without really wanting to do this. I also don’t want her to think I liked what she did when she cheated on me. I did not like it, but I would like to relive it in a playful way, in which I have complete control. How do you think I should approach this talk? Which reactions should I expect? How can I make sure that she is really into this if she says yes? Feeling Obsessed Replicating Treason & Dominating Adulterer

revelation, not an excuse to punish your girlfriend for cheating. Make sure this isn’t a revenge fantasy. If it’s a genuine turn-on, share everything: this surprising new turnon, your own confusion and your legit concerns (you don’t want her to agree to do it out of guilt, it’s not a license to cheat). She might freak out. She might be into it. She might freak out and then later be into it. (That’s the origin story of most cuckold couples: Husband/BF proposes it; wife/GF freaks out; weeks, months or years later the wife/GF asks if cuckolding is still on the table.) You can figure out the parameters later, if you decide to explore this at all, but it starts with a conversation. Good luck. I write you from Italy, where I follow you through Internazionale. I am a guy in his 30s sexually paralyzed with his girlfriend. We are together four years, and during the last year sex has gradually faded away, leaving me alone with my skillful hand (left one). The sexual paralysis is beginning to affect our behaviors. We don’t accept each other anymore. We are starting to mutually ignore. Verbal communication is poor. However, we are exceptional friends. I am good-looking, sociable, fit and with plenty of semen. Girls are quite interested, but I don’t want to cheat. I don’t believe in monogamy, but my girlfriend could never tolerate betrayal. What the fuck to do? Literally Outta Order Penis

Cuckolding, like all fetishes and/or fantasies, is unique to the person and adaptable within particular relationships. But it’s erotic humiliation – of the person being cheated on – that distinguishes cuckolding from hot wifing/husbanding or swinging. The cuck’s partner, aka “the cheater,” is in control, and the cuck gets off on having his nose rubbed – sometimes literally – in the evidence of his partner’s cheating. (That’s the theory, anyway; I’ve gotten lots of letters from women – and some men – who are married to very controlling cucks.) Zooming out: Your reaction to learning you’d been cheated on – pain and shock, quickly followed by increased feelings of lust for your girlfriend – is not uncommon. It’s less common for the cheatee to eroticize the betrayal; a couple may reconnect sexually in the wake of an affair, but rarely does a couple wind up incorporating eroticized infidelity into their sexual repertoire. But in your fantasy, FORTDA, you would be calling the shots, giving instructions and telling your girlfriend what to do. That’s definitely not a cuckold fantasy. It may be a revenge fantasy. But a cheating crisis presents a good opportunity for both parties to be completely honest with each other about what they want going forward. And that’s what you should do: Be completely honest. First, make sure your fantasy is an authentic impulse, i.e., it’s a genuine turn-on, unearthed by this 66

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 1-7, 2017

Sometimes a relationship dies but we insist on propping the body up in a corner and pretending it’s still alive. We do this because even if the relationship is dead, our partner isn’t. And we can’t declare the thing dead – we can’t break the fuck up already – without hurting someone we used to have romantic feelings for and may still very much like as a person. So we tiptoe around the decomposing corpse until the stench can’t be ignored any longer. This relationship is dead, LOOP: You no longer accept each other, you ignore each other and the sex dried up a year ago. On top of all that, LOOP, you don’t believe in monogamy and she can’t tolerate betrayals. Even if your relationship weren’t dead – and if it isn’t dead, it’s so close you need to slap a Do Not Resuscitate order on its chart – you two aren’t a match. End the relationship, do your best to salvage the exceptional friendship and stop letting all that semen go to waste. English is not my mother tongue. Bear with me. I’m bisexual, age 26 – I always knew I was, but like many bi girls I ended up with guys. I had a long, serious relationship with a man when I was young and only started exploring my sexuality after I found the guts to leave him. Then I fell in love with a girl. She’s a lesbian, and after ●

a long and hard-fought chase, I finally got her. It’s been two months. I came out to my parents (whom I live with, adults living at home is acceptable in my culture, don’t judge), and they did not exactly welcome the news. But all would seem to be going well: I love a girl, she loves me, my parents let us be. Problem is, I want cock. I want a man to grab me and have sex with me. I’ve had the chance to do it and didn’t, because I wanted to respect the exclusivity of my relationship. My girlfriend knows about my doubts but says they are part of “questioning my non-heterosexuality.” I don’t want to leave her, because she’s my princess and my goddess, and I want to adore her for eternity. But I worry about bad judgment and impulses. Where do I go from here? Wanting A Dick Those aren’t doubts, WAD. They’re desires. You know what you want: You want your girlfriend, you want cock, you want a man to grab you and you want to continue questioning – and shaping and defining – your non-heterosexuality. The problem isn’t that you don’t know what you want, it’s that you don’t know how to fuse all these wants into a coherent identity. (Possible answer: “bisexual, lesbo-amorous, likely non-monogamous.”) There are plenty of options you and your girlfriend can explore – together or separately. Get a fake cock and use it together. If that doesn’t slake your hunger for cock, maybe your girlfriend would be up for a threesome. If she’s not DTFAGWY (down to fuck a guy with you), discuss whether an open relationship is a possibility down the road. That said, WAD, you and the Princess Goddess you worked so hard to land have only been together two months. If you’re wrecked over your need for cock at this early stage – if you’re not able to focus on her alone at eight weeks – maybe sexual exclusivity isn’t the right choice for you.
