Lucky’s Market just had its grand opening on February 6th, 2019. Located in the (SoDo) South of Downtown Orlando district at 3171 Orange Ave, Orlando, Fl. 32806. Known for having the largest variety of organic item and budget-friendly prices.

I’m really happy about having another choice when it comes to buying groceries, produce, meat, and fish. There’s also a Café, in-store, where you can sit and grab a bite to eat. For more information on Lucky’s Market visit their website at www.luckysmarket.com. Let me take you on a quick tour of my visit.

SOCO Restaurant Thorton Park

Soco Restaurant (2)

On Melissa’s last day before heading back to Oakland, CA., we went out for dinner. This time it was my turn to choose the place. I decided on SOCO RestaurantThorton Park. 

SOCO (Southern Contemporary Cuisine) takes classic southern fare and kicks it up a few notches. The atmosphere is trendy, cozy, with a lot of natural light. Let me take you on a quick tour of our experience.

Our server Jordan and the hostess Tiffany were both very professional and courteous. They both helped to make our dining experience one we’ll remember. Thank you both so much!

As I passed by I noticed a small bio on the wall, one about the Chef Greg Richie and another about how old favorites have been reimagined.

The Hangry Bison

The Hangry Bison (7)

It was an unbelievable surprise when my daughter showed up at my job on Tuesday. It turns out, my co-workers knew she was coming. When I saw her face come through those doors my heart just filled up!

One of our long-time family traditions was to go out to dinner and a movie once a week. We are keeping that tradition going.

We’d eaten dinner earlier in the evening but had some time to kill before seeing a movie called The Upside. We headed over to the Winter Park Village in Winter Park we noticed just across from the Regal Cinema this place, The Hangry Bison. We decided to pop in to have a cocktail while passing a little time until the start of the movie.

We walked up to the bar and there we were greeted by this sweet bartender named Eileen. Melissa and I were curious and started asking questions like how long had they been open and what were they best known for. She talked about their hand-built burgers, fine bourbon, and craft beers.

First, here’s a quick peek of The Hangry Bison.

Besides chatting it up with Eileen, who made us feel as though we’d know her forever, are the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Churro Doughnuts. What?

Well, Melissa was glancing over the menu and noticed a dessert called Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Churro Doughnuts. Eileen told us they were out of this world, with that said, we definitely had to try them. Drizzled with dark chocolate, a Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Caramel, and a light sprinkling of powdered sugar these Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Churro Doughnuts are a roller coaster for your taste buds. Just look!
