Dear recent Orlando transplant:

Ok, so you just moved to Orlando from New York / Philly / Chicago / San Francisco / et al. You feel lost, uprooted, misplaced -- you're starting to think Orlando might suck. Eager to find some nightlife in this town, you go to Lattitudes on Church Street, Slingapour's on Wall Street and that mega-club on Orange Avenue owned by one of those Backstreet Boys (Orlando's finest celebrities). Maybe you even think International Drive, Citywalk or Downtown Disney is where everyone hangs out in this town. Now you really think Orlando sucks.

Well, you're wrong. There is more to this city than theme park "nightlife" and crappy clubs with guys wearing shiny shirts, but you have to know where to look. Instead of complaining about how lame Orlando is compared to your city of origin, why not get out there and support your new scene -- it's a lot better than you think! After all, you moved here for a reason, right? (I'm guessing to escape the cold weather.) So you can do one of two things: either 1) move back to the city you think is sooooo much more awesome or 2) quit bitchin', check the events below and DON'T SLEEP on the shit that is happening!

Orlando Pizza and Beer Lovers Unite! Sunday, October 14th

Orlando Beer Bomb Bus Tour
The combination of pizza and beer can be compared to David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen: sure, each is decent on its own, but you just can't beat them together. This Sunday, October 14th, marks the next Beer Bomb Bus Tour which will be paying homage to this dynamic duo (the pizza/beer combo, not Diamond Dave and the Red Rocker). The beer of choice is the seasonal Shipyard Pumkinhead Ale, and three local pizza joints have been challenged to create a unique pie that will suitably compliment the specialty brew. The Shipyard bus departs from Redlight Redlight at 4:30 and will transport everyone to Rossi's Pizzeria on OBT, Mellow Mushroom in Winter Park and finally Lazy Moon by UCF -- all spots known for their mouth-watering pizza and outstanding assortment of beer. Tickets for the tour are only $35, including one slice and one Pumpkinhead per stop, and can be purchased at Redlight Redlight.
