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.
Our latest episode of “Bungalower and The Bus” on Real Radio 104.1 has been podcasted and is available HERE.
Our drive-in showing of Back to the Future was postponed due to severe weather in Lake Nona this past Friday and will be rescheduled as soon as possible. We are also moving forward as planned with our June 5th and 12th dates at Ace Cafe – though we have had to delay ticket sales for the late-night shows due to the current curfew imposed by Orange County government.
