You may want to plan for a designated driver if you're hitting the Downtown Pour this weekend

Church Street in downtown Orlando was made for block parties, and we can’t think of a better place for this year’s Downtown Pour. More than 40 vendors will line the streets, which will be closed to vehicle traffic, pouring sips of wine, beer and spirits for participants who can (and judging from previous years’ events, do) drink themselves silly. It’s not all about the alcohol (although it kind of is), as there will be art to browse and live music to keep you entertained. When you get hungry, participating restaurants include the Dubliner, Rusty Spoon, Graffiti Junktion and the new Ferg’s Sports Depot – although food’s not part of the pour, so bring some cash. Tickets for the event are only $20 ($30 if you buy them the day of the event), and at that price point, you know you can easily sip your money’s worth. Just don’t drive home afterward – that’s what Uber and Mears are for.
