Day 255 – Fundraiser and Downtown Orlando after Magic Game
Today we attended a fundraiser organized for the brother of a friend who had been in a bad car accident last year. The event was held in downtown Orlando and a huge success. Over 100 people showed up and supported the cause. The theme was a spaghetti cook off which I thought was a very fun idea. Every guest got to vote for their favorite sauce and in the end the winning chef got awared a price.
After the event we went downtown to meet up with friends. It happened to be the night the Magic won their final game against the Cleveland Cavaliers so the atmosphere in downtown was phenomenal and the city as crowded as I have never seen it – even past 2am. Everyone was in such a good mood and there was lots of positive energy – the perfect night to go out and celebrate! So we did 🙂
We met at Casey’s on Central and then went to a place I hadn’t heard of before. It’s called the Back Booth and is located on Pine Street. This club uses an old photo booth as its theme. It has something very enticing to it and so, of course we took some fun pictures in the photo booth. I wonder how many pictures are taken in this booth every night… it must be many!
Back Booth is apparently also known to be a great venue for live music and has been in downtown Orlando for 6 years now. Well, I guess it was about time I got to know it too! The music played was very comparable to what you would hear at Independent Bar on Orange Ave (so I liked it!). Best of all – no cover charge!
