SPONSORED by OCLS’s Booktoberfest on October 5: This is our latest rundown of the top ten things you need to know this week, in Orlando’s Bungalow Neighborhood news, and some bonus headlines you may have missed.

If you missed us on Real Radio 104.1 this past Friday, you can still listen to our 84th episode of “Bungalower and the Bus” HERE. We’re also happy to announce that we were just named as an Amazon Influencer and were given our own branded shop on the retail giant’s website to sell whatever we want to! We’ve decided to use that service to create an Amazon Hurricane Kit where you can have hard-to-find essentials delivered straight to your door. Click HERE to learn more.
