Spice Modern Steakhouse 326 S Park Ave Winter Park, FL 32789 www.spicesteakhouse.com I rarely frequent a specific restaurant more than once within a two week period. However, Spice Modern Steakhouse saw my face about three times within the course of seven days. Owned by a husband and wife team since 2006, the restaurant has great food, and a fun, yet trendy, atmosphere.  It is possible to enjoy an intimate dinner during the week, but there is live music Thursday through Saturday which makes a conversation at a booth somewhat difficult.  They definitely make up for this flaw with the cuisine and my favorite characteristic – two happy hours daily (4pm – 7pm and 9pm – close).  If you are a people watcher, there is ample seating outside that allows you to take in Winter Park’s nightlife right alongside the Park Avenue strip. In what I… [Read more]

Damn Amy what the hell!? There are a variety of albums and videos I love to play whilst working on the old pc. These aren’t limited to the Jazz and Rap genres that you dragonites may expect, I have a love for the Indy movement and at times some original R&B. One album that I have worn out to absolutely nothing is Frank by Amy Winehouse. After listening to it today (about my 200th time), I did a quick Google image search on the lady and oh my god I would do better to search for zombie anal sex. The pictures are brutal and being a web master I tend to keep safe search in the off position so I got a full frontal from all of it. The worst being the shots of her legs, teeth and cocaine filled nostrils. I can’t think of… [Read more]

Nile Ethiopian 7040 International Drive Orlando, FL 407-354-0026 Set deep in a plaza across the street from Universal’s Wet N’ Wild on Orlando’s tourist strip, International Drive, is a small Ethiopian restaurant called Nile Ethiopian. I must warn you when I say “deep” in the plaza, I mean deep in the plaza, and the law of addresses does not apply here, as the restaurant appears to be on the odd numbered side of the road.  This is truly a hidden treasure, proven by the fact that even on a Friday night, there was no need for a reservation. The décor had a warm African feeling, with a lot of authentic artwork, trinkets, and a television showing concerts and dancing from various African artists. The staff was no doubt from Ethiopia and very excited to teach us the tradition of the eating experience.  You have the… [Read more]

Creek 28 2727 Indian Creek Dr. Miami Beach, FL www.creek28.com Creek 28 is located inside the Indian Creek Hotel, a boutique bed and breakfast with very affordable room rates. Right on the corner of 28th and Indian Creek Blvd, the name is easy to remember, and the place is just close enough to the hubbub of Miami’s South Beach, but far enough from the strip that you can find free parking on the side of the street. The ever changing menu is never a disappointment and the staff is so friendly that there are several “regulars” who frequent the restaurant for a few drinks and great company. The restaurant itself is very quaint, with vast outdoor seating, as well as a patio section for reserved private parties. Kira Volz, the Executive Chef, is by far one of Miami’s finest. With no formal education, only hands… [Read more]

Gateway to India 790 East SR 434 Longwood, FL www.gatewaytoindiarestaurant.biz Goan spices and authentic Indian cuisine are frequent cravings for me. The Gateway to India is one of the best in the Orlando area for taste, however, I cannot say the same for the atmosphere, service, and price. Not to mention the four glass option wine list. The place is way to brightly lit for a date night cuddle, the staff only tends to you if you are the only one in there dining, and the prices are a bit high for the quality of overall experience. I have been to this place twice, once where my friend and I were the only ones in there, and once when we were seated near a party of about 25. The first time, we were waited on hand and foot. The second time, not so much. What… [Read more]

“I fight guys in the gym, so I know what it’s like to get hit hard. I don’t back down” – Gina Carano Muay Thai boxer turned MMA fighter Gina Carano is a double threat looker from Dallas County, Texas. With a record of 12 victories, 1 loss and 1 tie in Muay Thai, Carano moved on to doing Mixed Martial Arts and now reigns as the undefeated queen of fighting. If you haven’t heard of her, chances are you have either seen her in MAXIM or watched her kick another woman’s ass in EliteXC. Gina is a double threat because she has the swagger and power of a world-class fighter and the looks of a cover-girl. Having always been in athletics, Gina played basketball, volleyball and softball in high school. One thing I admire about Gina (as one of her fanbois obviously) is her… [Read more]

Let me preface this article by saying that I may sound as if I am about to use the tired old “strippers are sluts and gold diggers” argument but I’m not. Read the article. Okay here is the thing. I remember when I turned 18 and I went to my first Strip Club. My buddy at the time warned me to play hard-to-get and stretch my money out because he wanted to be there for a bit… since he was dating one of them. Upon hitting the doors to the place, I am propositioned by a full nude woman and bam my measly $60 was done within 15 minutes. After that initial experience I fell in love with the Strip Club, I would go every other month for my lap dance, bed dance whatever the particular club offered but I never went alone, and I… [Read more]
