It's not exactly news when a big daily newspaper with a travel section comes to town, but we were pleased to read Seth Kugel's Frugal Traveler blog on the New York Times' site today because it hit on some of the local places that we really do think are worth sending out-of-town visitors. He heads to Kissimmee for mofongo at Trópico Mofongo ("The monfongo was hearty and plenty garlicky), to Maitland to catch a flick at the Enzian (where Santa Claus Conquers the Martians happened to be playing), Redlight Redlight (where he says craft beer prices are "a bargain" compared to what they cost in New York City) and Lil Indies (where "I found a woman knitting (after midnight!), a guy dancing by himself, facial hair galore and art covering the walls. I also found very cheap and very good beers.")

Thanks for uncovering some of the real Orlando, Seth – our only quibble with your piece is that you missed a few really great local restaurants, in addition to the Puerto Rican fare you discovered in Kissimmee. Give us a shout next time you're coming to town, we'll give you the heads up!
