To quote one of Florida's favorite singers, Jimmy Buffet, "There's wind in our hair, And there's water in our shoes, Honey, it's been a lovely cruise....!"
After 13 wonderful years as the Orlando Cities & Towns Guide for About.com, I have decided to pursue my own writing and Internet goals. As of February 1, 2013, I will no longer be writing for About.com.
I want to say a big "Thank You!" to all my many friends at About.com, and my terrific readers/contributors for your great support over the years!
Fondly, Theresa Johnston

In fine Irish tradition, the folks at Raglan Road have found a way to continue the Saturday evening celebration right on into Sunday! A festive sharing of food and music with family and friends, The Rollicking Raglan Sunday Brunch is served from 11:00am until 4:00pm with live music and dancing starting at noon.
The menu offers some traditional brunch favorites along with Irish taste treats created by Master Chef Kevin Dundon, including the Full Irish with sausage, black and white pudding, bacon, roasted tomato, mushrooms and fried eggs with roasties. Another must try item here is the Irish Red Eye, a spicy Bloody Mary served with a float of Guinness.
For a special gathering with family and friends, try the 'Host the Roast' family style dining experience. Choose between Roast Rib of Beef, Roast Pork loin, Roast Leg of New Zealand Lamb or Roast lemon thyme Chicken. Each choice is served with traditional accompaniments and carved table side by you or one of your guests (assisted by one of the restaurant's chefs of course.)

For more than 100 years, the mystique of R.M.S. Titanic's sailing and subsequent sinking has captured the world's imagination. Hailed as the most luxurious ocean liner the world had ever seen, Titanic's manifest for the doomed maiden voyage had some of the wealthiest and most well-known individuals of the day.
It was 75 years after the Titanic sank that the first recovery operation was embarked upon. One of the most remarkable artifacts found was an unmarked leather Gladstone bag containing jewels from some of the passengers. These treasures are now on display at Titanic The Experience on International Drive until March 12, 2013 as Jewels of Titanic.
