Weekend Preview: July 23rd - 26th, 2015

The Parlor at Cloak & Dapper
Weekend Events

The Daily City's 3rd Annual Cardboard Art Festival 2015 is here to prove that cardboard is still fun even after you're too old to fit in the "rocket ship" you made out of the box your refrigerator was delivered in. Friday through Sunday, various opening times, $1 to $5.

Don't even bother depositing your paycheck into your savings account because Rifle Paper Co. is having a Summer Sidewalk Sale! Mama's Sauce will be there screen printing free art prints, Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops will be giving free pops to the first 100 customers on both days (pops are $3 the rest of the event), and you'll save up to 70% off all Rifle Paper Co. sample products. Friday 9:00am - 8:00pm and Saturday 10:00am - 5:00pm.

Phantasmagoria is back for this weekend only (wait, it's not Halloween...?) this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tickets start at $20 regular admission / $15 discounted admission. 

Thursday, July 23rd

If you're looking for a speakeasy-style movie theater, then don't miss Cloak & Dapper's Summer Parlor Movie Series this Thursday at 7:00pm featuring Airplane! Tickets are $20 and include unlimited popcorn and drinks (including cocktails, wine, craft beer, and sodas). Get your tickets here.

This Thursday, the Alfond Inn will have gone to the dogs...but in a cute way. Yappy Hour is Orlando's dog-friendliest happy hour and it's happening Thursday from 5:00 to 7:00pm.
