This weekend's theme is BYO__.
Friday, January 3rd
The Geek Easy is at it again with their Friday installment of Nerdy Karaoke (is there such thing as non-nerdy karaoke?) where social awkwardness and public singing collide in an orgy of acceptance. BYOC (bring your own costumes). Free, 9:00pm to midnight.
Because we just heard of The Space (above Anthony's Pizza in Mills50) and are intrigued/obsessed: Body // Talk is a monthly DIY dance-party that features indie bands alongside DJs that like to get weird. Once a month, they convert local art-house, The Space, into a mystical venue with quality sound, trippy lights, and lots of surprises. Before 11:00pm: FREE if you dress surreal [??], $2 in basic clothes. After 11:00pm: $2 if you dress surreal, $4 in basic clothes. Oh yeah, and BYOB.
Hop on your bike and head over to Commute Orlando's First Friday Ride of the new year! 6:00pm in the parking lot of the Mennello Museum in Loch Haven Park. BYOH (bring your own helmet!). For real though...you'll want to make sure to wear your helmet with this group.

Resolve to relax at East End Market's new Saturday Serenades (3:00pm-6:00pm every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month). The tradition begins this weekend with Café Grass.
