|Written by Scott Spar|
I just wanted to take a few minutes and thank all of you for not only reading and supporting the antics in my column every week for over two and a half years now, but for supporting Hotspots Magazine as a whole. All of you have made Hotspots the most widely read GLBT publication in Central Florida and for that I thank you. We will continue to always bring you the very best that our publication has to offer and that includes the crazy little part of my world called “What’s Hot Central Florida”. As always, until next week..much love to you all! Peace out, Scott.
