We suggest you check out this cool Orlando Pub; The Hammered Lamb

near orlando pubA couple of weeks back, Ellen and I took our neighbor and good friend, Debbie, out for a bite to eat and a few drinks.  Ellen and I had been to the Hammered Lamb once before and this would be Debbie’s first time.

It is a cute little pub located on North Orange Avenue and the two times we have been there, there is always a good crowd. It is close enough to where we live (Country Club of Orlando area), that you could walk or ride your bike as we had done in the past.

Take a bicycle ride to Scruffy Murphy’s in College Park

Yesterday I enjoyed sharing a bicycle ride with a friend through College Park to Scruffy Murphy’s.  The ride included winding around Lake Adair and Lake Ivanhoe near Downtown Orlando.  I would encourage anyone in the area to take an afternoon or morning to enjoy the scenic ride with brick paved streets, awesome views of the Orlando skyline and the quaint shops of College Park.

Shanghai Chinese Take Out in St. Cloud Florida

shanghai chinese take out

Last night I was in the mood for Chinese food so I Googled area Chinese restaurants and decided upon Shanghais.  Shanghai Chinese Take Out is located in the Oaks Park Shopping Center, 4040 13th Street, St. Cloud.  This is the shopping center where Staples is located.

I was impressed with the friendly nature of the staff and how fchinese-menuast my order was prepared.  I ordered Pork Lo Mein, General Tsao Chicken with an egg roll, pork fried rice and BBQ Spare Ribs.  The food was good and the portions were big enough to have leftovers in the fridge for this weekend.

In my opinion the Shanghai Chinese Take Out Restaurant is a good place to order out in the St. Cloud area.
