I was fortunate enough to sample the delicious food at Emeril's Tchoup Chop recently, and I'll be putting a complete review up on the blog in the next day or two. In the meantime, you can read a profile of the restaurant here.
Tchoup Chop has a new chef and general manager, as well as an updated menu and a fancy new robata grill. If you don't know what a robata grill is, read my review to find out!
I had the opportunity to visit the International Flower and Garden Festival again yesterday, and I have no doubt that this is the festival's best year. In addition to the spectacular topiaries and floral displays around the park, you can enjoy amazing food at 11 outdoor kitchens.
The outdoor kitchens offer something for everyone, and guests who attended the festival last year will be happy to learn there are some new additions. I'll be covering those in detail later in the week. In the meantime, enjoy a few more photos.
This is the last weekend to check out the 2014 Bands, Brew & BBQ at SeaWorld Orlando. This weekend, Hank Williams Jr. (3/8) and Alabama (3/9) will be performing at 4:00 p.m. at the park's Bayside Stadium. Grab some delicious BBQ, sip on ice-cold craft beer and enjoy the show.
Also this weekend, Daddy Yankee (3/8) and Steve Miller Band (3/9) will playing at the Bands, Brew & BBQ Event at Busch Gardens. Visit the website for information on buying tickets, VIP passes and wristbands.
If you prefer to visit the parks during the week (shorter lines!), SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens are offering $50 weekday tickets through May 5, 2014. If that isn't good enough, the tickets are good for all of spring break!
And, in other SeaWorld news, Discovery Cove is offering all-inclusive Dolphin Swim Day Resort Packages starting at $219 plus tax. For that price, you can swim with dolphins, tropical fish and rays, and all resort packages include continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages, as well as dolphin-safe sunscreen, snorkel equipment, lockers, wetsuits and towels. You'll also receive unlimited admission to SeaWorld Aquatica for 14 consecutive days around the date of your reservation. For more information, visit the Discovery Cove website.

I hope you're leaving some time open for the Flower & Garden Festival this year!
Here's a few more photos. I'll post another batch tomorrow, but after that you'll need to visit Epcot to continue enjoying the impressive work the Disney team has created.
