Bungalower wants to help you reclaim the fun in your weekend. We’ve put together a quick itinerary to get you out of your house and into some great local businesses on your day off. For this one, we suggest leaving your car at home.

1) Brunch is the most important meal of the day. That’s why we want you to rally with your friends at Dexter’s [Gmap] to start your Sunday adventure.  It can get a little (understatement) busy on Sundays so be sure to call ahead to reserve a table, or just saddle up at the bar – they’ll refill your Ultimate Bloody Mary faster there anyway.

2) After you’ve filled your belly with some great food and a couple of drinks (pace yourself), mosey on over to the Orlando Farmers Market (Website) in Lake Eola Park. If you’ve timed it right, Orlando Brewing starts serving drinks at noon so you can just breeze over, grab a glass and plop down at a picnic table. A lot of people go for the beer option, which is fine, but we suggest getting the wristband for the bottomless mimosa deal. There’s plenty of people watching to be had and usually live music to accompany it. They stop serving at 5 p.m. when the market ends.

3) Once you’re a little toasty from the hot sun and the never-ending drinks, stumble over for a fancy treat at the Pop Parlour (Website). This little shop specializes in artisan popsicles, with innovative combinations like; mango habanero, bourbon peach (with real bourbon), Cigar City Jai Alai IPA with Grapefruit, or Watermelon Mojito.

4) Once you’re sufficiently cooled off from your frozen fruit-booze on a stick, make your way back across Lake Eola Park and over to Graffiti Junktion for dinner. They’ve got some award-winning burgers, giant platters of nachos, cheap pitchers and buckets of beers to share with your friends.

If you’re still feeling fine, you can make your way over to the Falcon for a fancy brew or Burton’s for a game of pool, but we suggest that you should probably call a Lyft and go home to sleep this day off before you work tomorrow.
