Bullet Point Buffet: Theme Park Beer, Saturday Brunch and Chain Ramen

Written By Scott Joseph On August 6, 2018


A cornucopia of items.

  • SeaWorld is diving deeper into special-event waters and has announced a new Craft Beer Festival for Nov. 3 through 11, but only on weekends. So, basically, two weekends. That isn’t much time to sample the more than 100 beers, mostly from Florida, the theme park plans to have on draft. Food will be involved, too, with over 20 “unique” food items, according to a press release.
  • Another SeaWorld item: happy hour. Through Sept. 2, guests can can enjoy BOGO offers on all beverages and some food items at Flamecraft Bar and Sharks Underwater Grill. It starts daily at 4 p.m. The press release doesn’t mention an end time, so it’s either all evening or it’s a literal hour of happy.
  • More SeaWorld: Free beer. Also through Sept. 2, the park is offering free domestic and seasonal beers at Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen Patio. You may have two of the seven-ounce pours.

  • Tony Mantuano, the Beard Award winning chef, will visit the new Terralina Crafted Italian restaurant in Disney Springs Saturday for Aperitivo Time, which is not exactly like happy hour. Sparkling wine and some nibbles, served from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Fifty bucks. Details and tickets here.
  • 1921 by Norman Van Aken has added Saturday brunch to its hours of operation. As with Sunday, brunch is served now on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. I reviewed the Sunday brunch in June. I just may have to drive to Mount Dora to make certain the Saturday meal is just as good.
  • Jinya Ramen Bar, which moved into the space in Thornton Park Central previously held by Verde Cantina (a Tijuana Flats before that), is slated to open Wed., Aug. 8. It’s a chain. Lunch and dinner daily.
