    Let's Go to LEGOLAND!

    Travel to one of Orlando Florida's best “unknown” theme parks. LEGOLAND Florida is just as fun as that “other” theme park, but minus all of the crowds and long ride wait times. So avoid the switchbacks and build some fun at LEGOLAND Florida.

    *Amanda Magnetta*, creative whirlwind and owner and operator of *Bear & Bird Gallery* (upstairs in Tate’s Comics) in Lauderhill, Florida knows a thing or two about art, style, and a DIY approach to life. Bear & Bird Gallery hosts awesome art shows, creative craft classes, and of course has a shop full of hand picked, aesthetically conscious goods. The gallery is a place for the community to connect, express, and inspire. We caught up with Lady Magnetta about her life in and out of the gallery, her inspirations, and her two adorable canine companions.

  • Rita's Italian Makes Jacksonville Beach Look Good

    Rita's Italian Makes Jacksonville Beach Look Good

    One word: Gelati. Two words: Mango Gelati. Three words: Best when cold. Four words: I want one now! In my opinion, Jacksonville Beach isn't family friendly. Too many college age and homeless bums hang out at this beach. There are so many cigarette buds on the ground. My fear is that I'll step on broken beer glass in the sand. And a friend of a friend almost got raped while out jogging in the morning. I avoid it.

    Sunshine Everywhere at Siesta Key

    Florida is a well-known vacation destination for those in search of the sun's sunny warm rays. However, not all beaches in Florida are created equally. If you find yourself in the central part of the state and on the west side, allow me to point you to one of my favourite beaches to soak up the sun.

  • The Parking Garage (Florida)

    The Parking Garage (Florida)

    For my favorite spot of lomo fun, I go to a tiny parking garage in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. When I had a class nearby I went fairly regularly and there was a lot of construction going on and a lot of fun signs all about, which I love because I always feel as though signs are shouting at me. Once I was brazen enough to slip past security (who was blaring classical music and chatting up a fairly bootylicious woman) and construction hazards and make it up to the rooftop.
