July 4th is over, but here are two important American milestones to celebrate: First, Krispy Kreme Turns 77, so grab some 77¢ original glazed donuts today. Next, it's July 7th, so visit 7-11 for Free Small Slurpee Day. Take that Slurpee to Stardust, and they'll put a shot of vodka in it for $4. It's summer, bitches!

It's time for another Mount Dora Art Stroll, so stop by Friday night between 6:00 and 8:00pm. Closer to Orlando, the Art & History Museums Maitland's Summer Concerts in the Garden starts at 7:00pm with readings, live music, bar, free popcorn.
