Cattle Baron’s Ball returns Dec. 4

The Cattle Baron’s Ball, the annual event to “give cancer the boot,” returns to Rosen Shingle Creek Sat., Dec. 4, from 6 to 11 p.m.

This is the twentieth annual fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society and the first return to an in-person event since the pandemic.

If you’ve never been, the Cattle Baron’s Ball is a big, fun Western-themed hoedown featuring numerous restaurants situated around one of Rosen Shingle Creek’s grand ballrooms. It’s a walkabout event so you’re free to roam – just like buffalo – to sip, taste and sample as much as you’d like.

Individual tickets are $250 and table purchases are also available. Proceeds will fund pediatric cancer support.

Lu Garden

Lugarden ext

I got Chinese food from Lu Garden the other day.

“Leu Gardens sells Chinese food?”

No, not Leu Gardens, Lu Garden.

“You mean Chuan Lu Garden?”

No, but Lu Garden has some good food to chew on.

Lu Garden is a compact, unassuming restaurant in a small strip mall on Conroy Winermere Road between Kirkman road and Dr. Phillips Boulevard. It seems the space was previously occupied by a business called Magic Wok, but Magic Wok apparently went poof.

I needed to order some food to take to a business meeting and found Lu Garden’s website. It was easy to navigate and had a user-friendly ordering feature. I grabbed some items and put them in my cart, easily choosing the side selections for each entree.

Corner Pizza Bar

Corner Pizza ext

OK, this is going to get a little confusing, so stay with me.

There’s a new business occupying the space in downtown Orlando that most recently was the food hall Market On Magnolia and before that Frank ’n Steins, which opened in 2011. Taking a cue from its location at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and Church Street, the new place is called The Corner Pizza Bar. It is owned by Diana and Alejandro Ranalli, who also own a restaurant called Italian House on Crystal Lake Drive just north of Curry Ford Road in a former Pizza Hut hut.

Orlando Restaurants Open for Thanksgiving Dinner

TURKEY

As you consider your Thanksgiving plans, turn to our Holiday Dining listings. There you’ll find a roster of restaurants that will be serving Thanksgiving dinner, such as Historic Dubsdread, Knife & Spoon, Highball & Harvest, Primo and JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek.

You’ll also find some restaurants that are offering prepared dinners that you can pick up and take home to pretend like you did all the cooking yourself, such as the Ritz-Carlton Turkey To Go. Although if I was going to pick up dinner for my guests from the Ritz Carlton I think I’d tell them where it’s from. It’s up to you.

Take a look at the listings here, and keep in mind that new information is coming in all the time so be sure to check back.
