One of Walt Disney World Resort’s top-tier restaurants, Flying Fish, will reopen Thursday, Jan. 27, at the BoardWalk. Tim Majoras will resume his role as the seafooder’s chef. Another signature dining restaurant, Jiko – The Cooking Place at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, will return Feb. 17. And Turf Club Bar and Grill, a casual dining restaurant at Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, will reopens Feb. 3.
The Ultimate Garden Party; Wine Quest dates; a fiery chili event; a sad Kissimmee closing; and National Irish Coffee Day.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is doing something new this year with a fundraiser called the Ultimate Garden Party, which makes me wonder what a subultimate garden party would be.
The subtitle for the event is Escape to Elegance, which makes me wonder why they think that a) I need to escape and b) why they think I’m not currently surrounded in elegance. I’m not saying I am, I’m just wondering how they know.
Anyway, the event will be at the presumably ultra elegant Loews Sapphire Falls Resort on Saturday, May 21, from 1 to 5 p.m. General admission tickets are $150 per person with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to support the organizations efforts to fight hunger in the community.
What can you expect at an Ultimate Garden Party? Hors d’oeuvres, drinks, entertainment. According to a press release, “dapper attire is encouraged.” I’ll have to dig out my dappers and get them to the dry cleaner.
More information and ticket-purchasing at the Second Harvest website.
SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival, which it claims is Orlando’s largest theme park food festival – which must be true because they couldn’t say that otherwise, could they? – will kick off (launch? wash ashore?) on Feb. 4 and run every Thursday through Sunday through May 8.
