Weekend Preview: June 27th - June 29th, 2014

Movieola Outdoor Movies at Lake Eola, Downtown Orlando Free

Weekend Events

Retromended Vintage is hosting its annual Weekend Sidewalk Sale on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5:00pm, with crazy discounts and special guest vendors.

It's the last weekend to try the bite30 menu at some of Orlando's coolest restaurants. Over a dozen restaurants are participating in the $10 to $15 lunch and dinner menus. (But don't go to Sushi Lola's, since they think they don't have to honor the deal on weekends...)

Friday, June 27th

It's time for another installation of Movieola, the monthly movie series at Lake Eola Park. Come by for games and food starting at 6:30pm, with Despicable Me 2 starting at 8:30pm.

You've wasted countless hours dedicated some time and emotional investment into the characters in The Office? Well, you're in luck: Bikes, Beans & Bordeaux (newly expanded!) is hosting The Office Trivia Night, this Friday at 7:00pm.

It's the last Friday of the month, which means Critical Mass will be happening at 5:30pm at Loch Haven Park. This month's bike gang will be a special June Memorial Mass for Furoche, so come out and support safe cycling.

Fourth Friday also means that the Sanford Art Walk will take place from 6:00 to 9:00pm, with live music, bars, restaurants, and galleries showing off their best art in historic downtown Sanford.

For a more sultry artsy experience, The Venue presents Burlesque After Dark: NOIR. It's dark, it's lurid, it's $16 online / $20 at the door; doors at 10:00pm.
