Orlando Weekend Preview: June 4th - 7th, 2015

June First Friday: Local Love at Macbeth Photo
Weekend Events

Happy Decadeaversary to an Orlando institution! Redlight Redlight is celebrating its 10th Anniversary Week by having throwback pricing on beers, old posters from when they were in their first location (no, not Bennett Rd--what kind of hipster ARE you?!), and special beers being tapped all week long, including vintage kegs, brewery collaborations, and rare beers you'll brag about for months to come.

Speaking of things that will leave you happy and hungover, this weekend is Gay Days Orlando! From daytime theme parks (don't forget to wear red) to nighttime theme parties (don't forget to wear... nothing?), the official events calendar will have something for everyone.

Thursday, June 4th

Want to start the weekend (no one actually gets work done on Fridays, right?) by feeling healthy, fabulous, and charitable all at once? Then join Warrior Power Yoga from 6:00 to 7:00pm for an hour-long spin class, Rainbow Ride, to benefit the Zebra Coalition and The Center. There is no set suggested donation, but we hope you give generously!

Friday, June 5th
Sticking with the charitable theme, Macbeth Photography has teamed up with the Rethink Homelessness campaign to bring you a unique First Friday: Local Love photoshoot event. Held at Canvs downtown instead of the usual location, make sure you snag a picture highlighting your 'hood on the amazing backdrop created by local artist Nathan Selikoff along with Hillery and Morgan from Macbeth Photo. $20 gets you a quick photo session and a digital picture to share with the world. Runs from 3:00 to 9:00pm, no appointment needed.


Just when you were recovering from Fringe Fest and not being entirely sure of what's real and which way is up, why not push your boundaries a little further with The Internet Is Where Everyone Is Wrong. We are still not totally sure what is it, but you're guaranteed a weird, interactive, artsy fun time. Starts at 10:00pm, free (or so it seems, we don't know what to believe anymore).

Saturday, June 6th

This Saturday is packed! Start with the Etsy Craft Party & Fair that runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and features local crafts, a crafty workshop, raffle prizes, and more!

After lunch, head over to Smashington 2015 Interactive Art & Music Festival that will feature over 70 acts of music, art, and everything in between. There will also be local vendors and activities and food trucks. $15 if you buy pre-sale online, 2:00-8:00pm.

If the Stardust Video & Coffee gallery was a human, they would finally be able to drive. Celebrate 16 years of showcasing all the craziness Orlandoans have to offer in art form by attending their celebration The Originals where they bring back some of the original artists from yesteryear and finally reveal a name for their gallery. There will also be cheese, so there's that; 7:00-11:30pm.

Called the “adult swim” of the science variety, Science Night Live at the Orlando Science Center is strictly 21-and-up with tons of interactive exhibits, trivia, laser light shows, craft beer seminars, and even a presentation about mummies. $15, 8:00-11:00pm.


Re-live your disenfranchised '80s youth (or what your parents have told you it was like) by throwing on some pajamas and cuddling up to your princess, criminal, basket case, brain, or jock to watch The Breakfast Club at The Abbey. They'll provide the snacks and booze, you just need to show up in your bedtime best. Doors at 7:00pm, movie at 8:30pm, $8.

Sunday, June 7th

If you don't sleep in too much, join Fleet Farming's Swarm Ride from 9:00 to 11:30am learning all the ins-and-outs of urban farming and making your city more beautiful.

If you're hungover from watching the princess and the jock flirt on screen from the night before, shake it off T-Swift style with a little Yoga at Lake Eola before wandering over to have a few mimosas in Thornton Park.
