Weekend Preview: August 22nd - August 24th, 2014

Get ready to kick it in Orlando this weekend, folks!


Friday and Saturday - Get ready for a second chance to watch Corsets & Cuties: a Burlesque Cabaret (the first weekend was sold out quick)! Check them out at The Venue. $14, Cocktail hour at 8pm, show at 9pm.


Got a great job? Willing to lose it for a day of free beer?? Check out Wall Street Plaza's City Skip Day. It starts at noon, because who gets up early to play hooky?

Naw? Not risque enough for you? No worries, Nerd Nite is having a killer happy hour at Howl at the Moon which includes free admission, a free happy hour buffet, two $1 drink tickets, and a wet t-shirt contest! No. That's a lie. It's a dry t-shirt contest for the nerdiest shirt. But you know you have a punny shirt you want to show off. 6-8pm. Be sure to RSVP here!

Get your art and culture on- Head over to Sanford for the Sanford Art Walk (6pm) and stick around for the 2014 Love Your Shorts Film Festival Summer Rewind (8pm) where $5 gets you in to watch 8 of the favorite shorts from around the world.

Got a surreal story to tell? Drop your name in a hat at the Orlando Story Club's Public Story Slam where 10 randomly selected attendees get 5 minutes to tell their tale and randomly selected judges pick a winner. Or, in other words, an introvert's worst nightmare. Surreal – Stories to Make You Go 'Huh?' starts at 7:00pm at OMA. $12 advance, $15 at the door


Do something for someone else. While stuffing your face full of cheese. Give in to your gluttony at O-town Mac-down where professional chefs will be showcasing their favorite mac & cheese recipes! Oh yes, Toasted will be there with their mac & cheese sandwich. $10 if you order your ticket online before Friday at 5pm or $15 at the door, benefitting Give Kids the World Village (a ridiculously cool getaway for kids with life-threatening illnesses). 11am - 4pm

Like local food? How about local art? Get your fix at Homegrown Coop's Eat Your ART Out art show. Free to attend with some great music and free snacks, but grab some groceries and support the Coop at this fundraiser! 7pm - 10pm


"That'll do, pig. That'll do." reminisce about that herding porker at The Enzian's Peanut Butter Matinee of Babe at 12pm.
Bodcast Broadcast: A Body-Positive Burlesque Show by Polylust

Wait! Did I hear you say that you needed more burlesque in your weekend? Catch the Bodcast Broadcast: A Body-Positive Burlesque Show by Polylust at Will's Pub. 18+ $5 at the door. Did we mention that Dr. Buttstallion will be making an appearance?

Dig the tiny house movement? Never realized that there is a tiny house community in Orlando? Me neither! But this weekend they're opening their minuscule places for a pot-luck and some small house chatting. Head over to the College Park Village RV/Tiny House Community for Open [Tiny] Houses in Orlando!3-5 pm Tiny House Tours, 5-6 pm Potluck Dinner and Social. Because why the hell not?
