If you think of the TG Lee plant when we say "The Milk District," think again. CNN recently named Orlando one of the “world’s top destination for 2012” thanks to this buzzingbohemian neighborhoodaround Bumby and Robinson. Whether you prefer street cred threads or a stacked old school sammie, this week you're spoiled for choice!
Etoile translates as "star" in French and this "sassy and spunky" boutique earns five of 'em from Daya A. She's dazzled by their selection of "vintage rompers, high-waisted shorts and bow ties" and quirky accessories like “a funkypizza necklaceand massive deer ring.”Even though he has a very old Ross bike, Bill S always gets be-spokeservice and same or next day turnaround from Kyle's Bike Shop every time he pedals into an issue. Looking to have some freewheelin' fun of your own? Check out their site, they highlight great spots around O-Town for bikers of all levels!
Justin A recently rediscovered the Orlando tradition that isBeefy King's roast beef sandwich served on a steamed Kaiser. He implores, "Please don't let the outside of the building” or the scary clowns dangling from the ceilinginside deter you, “rest assured it'll be the best sandwich you've ever eaten.” The Sandwich Bar's slogan is "where herbivore and carnivore can dine together and not eat each other." Lynette D is a fan of the “quality ingredients” in both their Spicy Tempeh Tacos and Paul Reuben 'wich. And seeing this place has recently gone from lunch stop to a late night lounge, they're perfect for soaking up some libations!
With a serious game of steel-tip darts going on most of the time, Pete W reckons Bull & Bush is the perfect "hybrid of a dive bar and British pub." He advises grabbing a pint of Old Thumper bitter and a Scotch egg: "You owe it to yourself to check out this place out at least once." For a more intimate setting, head down to The Milk Bar. Jeff K declares it to be a “perfectly chill beer drinker's paradise” thanks to their staff who are a "veritable font of beer-related information" and their “exceptional” menu of over 50 brews. Make ours a Left Hand Milk Stout. Cheers!
