Dining Shorts: Sushi, Chili and No More Food at The Globe

Like sushi? Want to learn how to make it? Well, Ichiban in downtown Orlando is holding Sushi 101 classes. Learn to roll your own sushi and then enjoy a dinner that includes your choice of beer, wine or saketini; ginger salad, soup, gyoza and edamame; a Calfornia or Spicy Tuna roll (which I’m guessing is what you created that evening); and a dessert of green tea ice cream or chocolate cake. Cost is $40 per person and the next one is March 2, 2009. Call 407.423.2688 to reserve a spot. Ichiban is located at 19 S. Orange Ave.

Kelly Fitzpatrick of the Orlando Sentinel reports that Wall Street Plaza has closed the kitchen at The Globe and cut back hours of operation there to only Friday and Saturdays from 8pm to 2am. Plans are to renovate the space into something else, but nothing is set in stone yet. Got any suggestions?

In the meantime, WSP has instituted a new menu across the plaza at Waitiki, including the addition of The Globe’s popular sweet potato fries.

BTW, congrats to Kelly on getting her column back at OS!

Free Open Bar at Wall Street Plaza on January 16

Got an email from Wall Street Plaza that this Friday, January 16th, they’re holding a special 2-hour open bar with free drinks from 6pm until 8pm. Yes, I said FREE DRINKS.

But to get in, you must have an invite.

No worries, though…it’s super easy to snag one. Simply go to the Wall Street Plaza website and sign up for their email list by this Thursday, January 15, 2009. As a member of their list, I can tell you they don’t send more than one or two emails a month. But one of these emails will be sent out at noon on Friday with the actual invite to this open bar party. Then all you have to do is print it out, show up with ID proving you’re 21 or over and you can drink free from 6-8pm.

Unfortunately, I work until 9:30pm, but I hope you all can take advantage of this. WSP is one of my fave places to go downtown and I’m bummed to miss out on the free drinks. Hey guys–maybe you can do this again on a Thurs next time? LOL
