ORLANDO – Cookouts on the grill with sizzling burgers, steaks and hot dogs, outdoor events featuring plenty of beef products …. Sigh.
What’s a veggie lover to do?
One possibility is to set aside Saturday, Oct. 25, make a trip to Orlando Festival Park, and revel in the largest vegetarian festival in the South – a virtual who’s who of plant-based goodies.
The Central Florida Veg Fest will be celebrating its ninth year on Oct. 25, when it gets held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the park at 2911 E. Robinson St. in downtown Orlando. It’s partly a celebration of vegetarian cooking and meals, partly a fund-raiser to further the cause of a vegetarian lifestyle, and partly educational. Anyone who desires to learn more about the benefits of vegetarian eating, this is the event for you. Continue reading

The WingHouse calendar for 2015 is now available — bikinis galore!


LARGO — According to the calendar, fall is coming up on Monday, Sept. 22 – although, of course, in Central Florida the tropical weather will make most of us feel like summer isn’t over just yet.
With that in mind, a well-known restaurant chain has made it clear that regardless of whether it’s summer or fall, the bikinis are here to stay — year-round, in fact.
To reinforce that point, Ker’s WingHouse Bar & Grill has unveiled its 20th Annual WingHouse Girls Swimsuit Calendar, now ready to be purchased at all 24 WingHouse locations in Florida.

National Chicken Wings Day is held annually on July 29.

TAMPA – Ask yourself one question, and quite honestly: have you earned your wings?
Crawford Francis Ker, the former offensive linebacker for the Florida Gators, certainly hopes so.
That’s because Tuesday, July 29 marks a special day for Ker: it’s National Wing Day, which not surprisingly means the folks at his own WingHouse Bar & Grill restaurant chain plan to do their own special celebrating.
Ker, the CEO of the Largo-based franchise and alumni of the National Football League, plans to be offering deals on this special day to get as many customers as possible in a soaring wing mood.
National Chicken Wing Day is celebrated annually on July 29, devoted to highlighting the rich variety of chicken wings that are available – hot and spicy, mild, boneless, sticky sweet, served with blue cheese, celery sticks or plum sauce, and, as the sponsors of this day of celebration like to note, offering plenty of protein.
