  1. Given the wing and a prayer nature of the news conference, that’s probably not a shock. I think Pat’s got the same PR firm as VMC... Pat and Bob Snow can get together and do an Orlando version of The Sunshine Boys. Meanwhile, the rest of us can ponder why Orlando seems to have no leaders under 60 anymore. It’s really sad that we’re turning into a sequel of Cocoon.
  2. I knew you’d want to know this immediately! Miramar, FL Mayor Wayne Messam has dropped out of the Democratic Presidential Primary. Among his accomplishments: he raised $5 in the third quarter! Best wishes, Mayor!
  3. The Christmas tree is under construction at Eola Park! https://twitter.com/lakeeolapark/status/1197263084227846145?s=21
  4. You’re right - it perfectly matches showing up to a press conference in a Hawaiian shirt and saying it’s up to you, Orlando, to get 250,,000 names with no commitment. Yep, that’s going to be taken seriously. I know I’m convinced!
  5. Time to vote for the winner of Scott J’s Foodster Award for Brewpub/Microbrewery: https://www.scottjosephorlando.com/foodster-awards/vote-now/4954-finalists-for-best-brewpub-microbrewery-foodster-award Or maybe we’ll just let Andy decide!
  6. Tell FDOT what you think about South Orange Avenue: https://bungalower.com/2019/11/19/fdot-wants-your-input-on-design-for-orange-avenue-corridor/ From the Bungalower
  7. Well, not only are we losing the Citrus Parade but the Christmas Parade has been canceled too. It may be back next year but don’t hold your breath. Thank goodness PRIDE is alive and well! https://bungalower.com/2019/11/19/downtown-christmas-parade-canceled/ From Bungalower
  8. More on the Hourglass car wash from Brendan at The Bungalower: https://bungalower.com/2019/11/19/hourglass-car-wash-to-become-retail-hub/
  9. Will dorms be coming to Valencia’s other campuses? They’re thinking about it: https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/education/os-ne-valencia-housing-20191120-cnocnbgyprdrjogqzgfayiqyta-story.html From the Sentinel
  10. Apparently Pat didn’t go to too much trouble to craft the logo: https://twitter.com/spokes_murphy/status/1197191818489794561?s=21
  11. It seems Sanford wants to go hi-tech - who knew? Also, it seems Acme Glass, which was in the loft building on Colonial at the RR tracks for decades - has been bought out and is now in Sanford. Every time you look, it’s like the General is finally getting his revenge! https://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-bz-sanford-pushing-for-manufacturing-jobs-20191120-o2ooctotfbcilbxgxlhnh67xym-story.html From the Sentinel
  12. I’d be surprised if they did. The city has been using onstreet parking as a traffic calming device for a while now. It also helps defray the loss of the spots under I4. Isn’t that why we have Winter Park?
  13. At the time, the idea was to use parking garages in the back of the still-existing but fading Colonial Plaza Mall. Given the size a stadium would likely be today and the increased use of the Milk District, I agree it would be impractical. We were thinking more Wrigley Field or Fenway Park back then than the Royals (Kauffman) Stadium.
  14. It’s an ongoing debate unlikely to be resolved any time soon: https://www.ayresassociates.com/one-way-or-the-other-two-way-traffic-conversion-requires-study/ Personally, I’m agnostic about which way the street goes. What I know is that the more lanes the road has the less welcome I feel as a pedestrian and I avoid those wherever possible. Suffice it to say you won’t see nearly as many people walking on South St. or Rosalind Ave. as you will on Central Blvd or Summerlin Ave.
