From the amount of thing’s I’ve got to mention in my column this week, it’s pretty obvious that things are really happening here in Central Florida. Between the Equality Florida Gala in Ybor City to the Downtown Orlando Food and Wine Fest, there’s no real reason to be spending your time anywhere else but right here at home in Central Florida! Now, for those of you who didn’t know: I just got back from a week away on the RSVP Cruise to the Southern Caribbean. And boy, do I have details for you…I’ll give you the T next time! As always, until next week…

Now, we all know that The Flamingo Resort is known for throwing some of the most fantastic events that The Bay area has ever seen, but did you know about their bar called CODE? Well, let me tell you a little about this bar. It’s like being in a back alley where it’s kinda dark and sexy. There’s one bar, 2 dancer cages, a stage for demos, and a locker area. I don’t think I need to go into any major sort of description about how hot this club within a club is, just use your imagination! Code is located within The Flamingo Resort complex. www.Flamingofla.com
