Events This Weekend
The annual Orlando Restaurant Week has been extended into two months of delicious dishes and deals. Here’s the gist: restaurants across Orlando offer special prix-fixe, multi-course menus for $30 each. You get to enjoy a taste of what the restaurant has to offer for a fraction of the price. I’d say that’s a win-win!
With the accessible price point, it also encourages you to hop around the city, trying various cuisines and concoctions. Take-out options are available, but be sure to check with each location first. Enjoy this taste of Orlando all summer long!
🗓 JUNE 1–AUGUST 1
2. CommUNITY Rainbow Run
This 5th annual event, supporting the National Pulse Memorial & Museum and the onePULSE Foundation, is a great way to kick off Pride month in Orlando.
This 4.9K Run will take place in Wadeview Park. Can’t make it in person? You’re in luck! A virtual option is available to support the cause from a far. Regardless, this is a great opportunity to get active, support a great cause, and receive some awesome swag. (A t-shirt, backpack, and medal? Sign us up!)

5. Movie Night @ Leu Gardens
Picture it: A warm summer night in Orlando, FL. You’re sitting on a blanket with a picnic spread you’ve prepared, laughing along as the iconic “I’ll have what she’s having” is uttered on screen. I’d say that’s movie-worthy perfection!
Leu Gardens is hosting an outdoor screening of When Harry Met Sally. Outside food and alcohol is permitted, so date nights are encouraged. Enjoy this essential romantic comedy under the stars.
