We just got back from a mini vacation to the Florida Panhandle, and I wanted to tell you about 5 products from Amazon that I purchased -- and loved -- on our trip.

Here are a few fun things to do around Orlando this upcoming weekend:

Central Florida residents, art lovers and attractions enthusiasts are invited to come together and celebrate the grand opening of one of Orlando’s newest and most unique offerings, the Lonely Dog Immersive Experience. 
After 16 successful years in Orlando’s food game, Meraki Food Group, the family-owned business behind Taverna Opa Orlando and Tapa Toro, has opened its highly-anticipated concept, Kavas Tacos + Tequila. The experience-driven Mexican restaurant opened to the public on May 5, 2023, at Pointe Orlando (9101 International Drive, Suite 1198), just an escalator away from its sister concept. The restaurant boasts 7,000 square feet, including four event spaces and two patios, perfect for weekend brunch. 

“Mexican food at its core is simple and comforting, and the culture extremely vibrant – similar to the Greeks– which is why we're most excited to bring this new experience to International Drive,” said Katerina Coumbaros, co-owner of Kavas Tacos + Tequila. “Our team is forever on a mission to deliver the perfect balance of amazing food and entertainment. We achieve this by hiring great talent, importing the best ingredients, offering various options to meet our guests’ dietary needs, and creating high-energy environments that allow guests to let their hair down and enjoy life!” 

Kavas Tacos’ menu includes Tex-Mex classics and playful takes on Mexican street fare inspired by the ambulantes (street food vendors) of Mexico City.  Guests can kick off dinner with chill bar dishes like Shrimp Coctel and Ceviche, available with pescado or vegan style, and progress into antojitos like Classic Street Corn and Black Bean Empañadas. Next up, they can dip into Classic Guacamole and Queso Fundido followed by plentiful fajita options like Surf & Turf and main plates including  Mezcal Mango Salmon and Chimichangas. Coming in hot with that BTE (Big Taco Energy) is a show-stopping 3-Foot Taco Board that includes a guest's choice of 12 tacos. The menu consists of vegan and vegetarian options and sweets, including Coconut Tres Leches, Cookies + Horchata, and Flaming S’mores Taco. Dishes are available a la carte and family style.
