Learn how to mix, stir, and shake under the tutelage of experienced instructors. During the four-hour mixology course, you'll learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations. Or, over the course of 40 knowledge-soaked hours (spread over a one-, two-, or three-week schedule), bartenders-to-be will receive extensive instruction and hands-on practice. All ABC grads enjoy a lifetime of free refresher courses, job-placement assistance, and access to a Cheers dimension that currently, due to spatial fluctuations, contains only Cliff Clavins.
SAK Comedy Club, a breeding ground for highly pedigreed improv comics such as Wayne Brady, targets funny bones with the unique brand of improvised comedy that's made it an Orlando landmark since 1991. Sak’s skilled rib-ticklers offer a robust schedule of all-ages shows designed to evoke hearty laughter, humanity's only form of exercise prior to the advent of the treadmill. Thursday–Sunday, “Duel of Fools” allows the audience to play judge and jury to jousting comics. Like rodeo clowns settling a boundary dispute, four improv directors clash in a humorous battle royale in the “Gorilla Theatre” show staged on Fridays. On Saturdays, the “Early Show” at 11:30 p.m. allows Sak's masterful mirth-makers to spin longer scenes that give elements such as character and story a chance to frolic and roam free.
Steve Yanni first felt the inexorable pull of photography more than 20 years ago, when he picked up a camera and started snapping photos as a hobby. Since then, Steve has ceded to his artistic calling, dedicating his career to capturing special events, family portraits, and sensual boudoir shots, as well as imparting his knowledge upon fledgling shutterbugs during instructive workshops. The bridal specialist enlists a team of talented photogs to help him at events, ensuring that no special moment goes undocumented, from the cutting of the cake to the swallowing of the ceremonial flaming sword.
The King of Wake series glides into its final day at Orlando Watersports Complex, pitting extreme athletes against each other to finish off its first heat of this summer's eight-city tour. During the all-day event, buoyant competitors from around the globe take to the tides in a battle for points, which amass over several months before determining a champion and winner of a novelty-size mustache comb at season's end. Cheers sweep through throngs of onlookers as aerial stunts, rail tricks, and bone-rattling wipeouts crash across the liquid field behind towboats travelling at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. A panel of judges scores each round, advancing only the top performers into the event's finals. Although not included with this Groupon, food stands, music, and stores packed with watersports gear join forces to further entertain fans and cheer up cranky dolphins awakened from their afternoon naps.
The menu at Doc’s Streetside Grille may be only two pages, but it includes a diverse selection of dishes that showcase ingredients from a variety of cuisines. Guests can soak up the pub atmosphere with beer chili served in a bowl or on cheese fries, or keep it light with an almond-crusted goat-cheese salad with fresh spinach and strawberries. A bit of Mexican flair is introduced in dishes such as seasoned mahi-mahi tacos and a taco pizza with black beans, beef, and olives. Apple barbecue sauce sweetens a half-pound burger with bacon, and for after dinner but before 10 p.m. Scrabble, serious sweet tooths can share baked brie for two, which is slathered with raspberry marmalade.
Though the menu appeals to diverse palates, Doc’s seeks to bring people together. The restaurant fosters a community of sports fans by broadcasting regular games on TV, and encourages regular visits with events such as live music and trivia.
