Tonight, I had the pleasure of attending the 6th Annual Red Chair Affair at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre in Orlando.
The Red Chair Project is a public service designed to increase participation in the Orlando/Central Florida arts and cultural community by building awareness. As a collaborative campaign involving arts and cultural organizations from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties, Red Chair Project is the ultimate resource for learning what to do and where to go for everything cultural. A nonprofit service, the Red Chair Project strives to increase participation by providing methods to increase ticket sales, increase arts education opportunities and promote arts and cultural philanthropy.
At the event, I sampled cuisine from a number of top restaurants in Orlando
Featured restaurants included: Funky Monkey, The Boheme, Norman’s, and Cala Bella– all of which are participating in Orlando’s Magical Dining Month.
For dinner, I sampled a bunch of different appetizers, including crab salad.
Cheese! Lots of cheese!
Crackers, pasta, and marinated artichoke hearts.
I also enjoyed a pork slider, topped with onions and gorgonzola.
And bruschetta on a crostini, smoked salmon, red grapes, and more cheese.
Carol and me!
In addition to delicious food, I also enjoyed performances from a variety of art genres and organizations, including the Bach Festival Society, Cirque du Soleil, and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. My favorite performance of the evening was by the SAK Comedy Lab, which is Orlando’s long-running company that does short-form improv. It was absolutely hilarious!!
I have a serious blog backlog, but hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up tomorrow. Right now, BED is a priority! Good night!
