Weekend Preview: Things to Do in Orlando for March 8th - 10th, 2013


Tonight from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, Quantum Leap Winery (1312 Wilfred Dr) will host its monthly Wine Down, including live music.  (This is also a great place to take a break when you're pedaling down the Orlando Urban Trail!)

Later on, head downtown to Wall Street Plaza's weekly Friday Night Block Party, where one admission gives you access to all eight bars.


Saturday night at 7:30pm, join the possibly-soon-to-be-MLS Orlando City Soccer Club for a match against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.  Tickets start at $15.

If you're an early riser and fancy yourself a painter, come to the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts (1111 N Orange Ave) this Saturday at 8:30am for the 2nd Annual Refresh Orlando.  If you'd like to help renovate the home of the Orlando Ballet and Central Florida Community Arts, then be sure to register!

This Saturday, from 4:00pm to 10:00pm, the City of Orlando invites you to the Seventh Annual Blues B-Q.  This free event takes place in front of the Orange County Courthouse (at Orange Ave & Livingston) and features two stages with live music and a variety of BBQ vendors.

Up in Casselberry, the city is hosting the Casselberry Jazz, Art, and Golf Weekend, a free event highlighted with a performance by chart-topping Eugene Groove.


A great way to start your Sunday is to grab some food at your local farmers market.  Usually the College Park Sunday Brunch Market is at Infusion Tea (1600 Edgewater Dr), but this week's market takes place at Dartmouth Park from noon to 5:00pm.

Another great way to enjoy Sunday's beautiful weather is to visit the Downtown Orlando Farmers Market, from noon to 4:00pm.

Then head over to the Enzian to watch this month's Film Slam '13 at 1:00pm. $5 gets you in to Orlando's best local indie film showcase where you vote for each month's winners. Winners go on to show at Enzian's Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase in November.

This Sunday, BART supports Rock'n'Roll Camp for Girls by hosting an all-ages event that includes a silent auction, door prizes, food trucks, and, of course, video games and beer.

What are you doing this weekend?


  1. They need a rock and roll camp for 30 year old men too.

  2. Friday happy hour at Redlight Redlight in Audubon Park, then picnicking at a local park on Saturday. Gotta love Florida in March!

  3. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results

  4. I had an amazing experience at this place. They have very good decorations and food and drinks were average pricing. I am looking out for any chance to back there.
