Good morning and happy Friday, Magic City Maniacs! What a week it has been! We deserve a beer. Yes, I realize this is being posted at 8am. But like I said, it’s Friday! Here are today’s park hours: Universal Orlando Resort Universal Studios Florida 9a-7p (early admission @ 8a) Islands […]
Full steam ahead to Mardi Gras!
Yesterday was the last day to experience the holiday (Christmas) events at the Universal Orlando Resort. In less than a month’s time, they will begin their annual Mardi Gras celebration. With just a brief stop at the Harry Potter Celebration between now and then, Mardi Gras kicks off on February […]
Daily vlog announcement!
Happy New Year, Magic City Maniacs! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. A daily vlog documenting my everyday adventures. I hope I can see this through until New Year’s Eve 2019. The vlogs might be just a couple minutes long, and sometimes they may even go […]

Too Chocolate Stout
This week for 5 o’clock Friday Beer, we ventured to Toothsome’s Chocolate Emporium at Universal Citywalk. Joey and I both had their signature beer, “Too Chocolate Stout” by Florida Beer Company. I think Joey might’ve had this beer before but this was my first. Have you ever tried this chocolate […]
