We went to Beefy King for lunch today. With probably the best roast beef sandwiches in Orlando, and tasty tots, Beefy King has been a landmark in the area since 1967.
This is the machine they use to cut their fresh sandwich meats. On the other side is a cutout in the table that shoots steam. This little square piece is the only place they make sandwiches on. It’s neat to watch. They then slop all the excess bits up with the other side of the bun and *SLAP* it together for a tasty treat!
I stumbled across a bum’s parking lot tonight. Didn’t see any bums, just lots of shopping carts. Maybe they were in their secret lodge meeting tonight?
We went to Gringos Locos after happy hour at the Orlando Brewery tonight. Gringos is famous for their oh so good food when you’re drunk late at night. We weren’t so much drunk as we were starved, but it all worked out well. I loved this festive napkin dispenser:
I took this picture before at night, and I liked it, but I felt like it was missing something. Maybe lack of Florida, or that certain UMPH, whatever that might be. So here’s take number 2, South Downtown Orlando through my technicolored glasses…
Orlando is so fickle in it’s weather. I wish it would just make up it’s mind. Last week it was a record low of 27 and yesterday it was a balmy 82. Today is right around 55 degrees after a crazy downpour/thunderstorm. Some days I don’t know whether to put on the AC or heat before I go to bed. I’m tired of you acting like a boy Orlando, will you please just make up your mind and go with it?

I keep driving by this one spot in Downtown Orlando that I always think “hey, that would make a great picture”, but it is right off a highway offramp and well there is no way of easily getting there. So tonight I decided since it was cold and Sunday, that it would be pretty traffic free and that I would lug my stuff down and snap a few shots. Wow, now I know why the bums aren’t even out tonight because I froze my fingers off getting this shot. Hope yall like it:
PS- Me freezing my “bajangjang” off taking the pic:
