Thornton Park’s The Falcon: A Pleasingly Chilled Vibe

Every Friday and Saturday, before heading to my new nightclub photo job, I patronize The Falcon. The Falcon locates in Orlando’s Thornton Park district.

Usually, the atmosphere is chilled.  Some nights alternative music plays on the sound system. Other nights, house or downtempo electronica plays.

Later on in the evening, a band or DJ plays.  Yet, I’m usually gone by this time.

On the night after Christmas, I started attending The Falcon last year. The service has always been nice.

Also, if you wanna hook-up, a dating service is on the wall.  I saw mostly twenty-somethings.

The pics are from the photo booth, a good thing because no one can fool you with ten year old pics.

As The Falcon don’t serve food, advertising from nearby restaurants are placed in the bar.

The Falcon also hosts art.

Like I mentioned earlier, I come here every weekend. As I usually see twenty and thirty-somethings, older folks show up too. Hipster alert!  Yea, I see hipsters attending The Falcon. Still, not one has gotten on my bad side…yet!

Because of the pleasingly chilled vibe, I recommend The Falcon.


South Rail: Good Americana Music Visits Orlando’s Natura Coffee and Tea on January 30

Some days back, I received an e-mail from Ben Potok of South Rail, a cool Americana band from Washington DC. I was late opening the message. (My bad).

“The Americana Rock band South Rail is coming through Orlando at Natura Coffee and Tea on January 30.

You can hear the tunes streaming at our website:
South Rail’s latest album called “Stars” was released in May 2014 and is produced by Don Was. The tour, called “Take The Wheel” tour is the first ever completely crowd-sourced national tour, meaning we had fans from across the country help fund AND choose the locations of the shows, including Orlando! We are also stopping in Key West (1/31) and Gainesville (2/1) to play a pre-Superbowl party.
Read a review of the album and mention of the tour in this article that was featured on the No Depression website and as top story in their Friday newsletter and few weeks ago”.
Because I liked the music, I recommend witnessing South Rail.
