Thank you to everyone in Orlando and surrounding communities for reaching out to ask what you can do to assist those that have been affected by the horrific acts of violence in Orlando. Chef Kevin Fonzo and Chef Jamie McFadden have teamed up to plan a benefit BBQ on Sunday, July 10th.  This will be an ‘open house’ from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM at East End Market.

The event will have no cover charge but will rely on attendees for donations.  Much like the LGBT Community, it will be about inclusion not exclusion. This Food and Wine Event will donate 100% of the proceeds to assist The Center Orlando in rebuilding their resources.  We are humbled to host this event and thank the staff and volunteers of The Orlando Center. http://www.thecenterorlando.org

There is not a price to attend this event.  Rather, we hope that attendees will donate based upon what they feel in their hearts. Please register online so we have an estimated count of the number of attendees attending.

Florida Hospital Planning Huge New Coworking Space in Ivanhoe Village?

In what will be one of the largest moves yet in the local coworking office scene Florida Hospital is rumored to be working on launching their own coworking space.  New details of the rumored project have been shared with  CFlTop5.

Based out of the 86-year-old Princeton Warehouse the new coworking space will be one of Central Florida’s largest with the majority of the 35,000 sq ft building devoted to the new venture.  The coworking office will take on the historic name of the building and be known as the Princeton Warehouse.  Located on Princeton just east of Orange Ave the warehouse will be an easy walk from Florida Hospital’s new SunRail station and the rest of their Health Village.  Internally at Florida Hospital the project has been known The Grove Project.

College Park’s nonprofit coffee shop Credo will oversee much of the day-to-day operations of the new space.  Credo has seen a rise in the number of guest who use the small coffee shop as a daily office.  This new facility will allow them to offer a more office like setting for those who choice it.  A full satellite location of Credo will be within the new space offering much of the same menu as the original.

While Credo will oversee much of the ambiance of the new office a community manager will oversee community member relations.  The space will function as both a community meeting space and an office for startups to use.  Similar to other coworking spaces in town Princeton Warehouse will offer different membership levels.  Along with a basic membership small office suites will be available.  The new coworking space will be designed for members to socialize with current staff at Florida Hospital through talks, book clubs and other events planned for the new space.

One group of the new coworking space will be targeted by the Contractor’s bond – contractorbond.org working with Florida Hospital who are  too small for their own office in the new Health Village.  One concern being worked out before the new facility opens next year is to ensure the right diversity of occupations fill the space to create good calibration between members.

The project is aiming for a mid-2014 launch with an official announcement from Florida Hospital and Credo in the coming weeks.

This is just one of three major new coworking spaces planning to launch in Central Florida over the next year.

Orlando VIP Treatment at The Spa

Massages are food for the soul while painting nails is for the color

For those in the upscale neighborhood of College Park, Florida their thirst for Greentoes massage can be satisfied at The Spa. This is a cozy place with many services for your body’s health. The Spa is at 2626 Edgewater Drive Orlando Florida.

The ease of parking behind The Spa facility made access extremely convenient. Upon entering the Facility, getting a tour was fabulous. While waiting for my massage appointment, we could indulge in champagne or water and sandwich wraps. Service is available to meet the variety of customer delights.

Reflexology for tired feet, where the whole body connects by just working on the feet. Reflexology maps areas of the feet to specific areas of the body;  allows another way to get healthy and relaxed.

Many types of massage are available for the discerning client. Hot stones, yes there is that service. Relaxing massage, of course! Sports massage is for those wanting something more powerful and practical. Make sure to choose a type and style of  massage to suit your passion. All massage therapists are different in their education or performance of massage – do not hesitate to consider other therapists. The therapists within an establish will not be alike in their technique, to find one that best fits your taste and body style.

Many like getting manicures and pedicures on a monthly basis. Find the right combination for you. Maybe the half price club? Ask at The Spa to find the right combination for your needs.

For those looking for products, there are plenty to offer. Lots of nail colors to choose. Check out their blog to see the different services. The Spa Facility Tour video – This video is courtesy of The Spa. My visit was courtesy of The Spa. Several other bloggers were there to discover the benefits and experience the services.

Meeting others and speaking to them after they received their services were excellent. Marissa Mosseri of Makeup and Manicures was kind enough to send me a quote about the service she received

I received a Swedish Massage at The Spa by Camille. The treatment itself was very relaxing and enjoyable, and Camille was very attentive, asking if there were any particular areas I wanted her to focus on, and making sure that I was comfortable and content with the pressure for my massage. I will definitely be returning to The Spa, especially with my new membership for their services!
