The Orlando Fringe is in full swing for the next two weeks, and seeing all those shows can be thirsty (and hungry) work. Your best bet, as always, is to patronize the vendors on the Fringe Lawn, as well as the Beer Tent and the Booze Tent. The food vendors are open for business weekdays from 5 p.m. to midnight, and weekends from 11 a.m. to midnight. (They are listed below.) The Beer and Booze Tents are open weekdays from 6 p.m. until midnight and weekends noon to 1 a.m.
But once in a while nothing on the lawn strikes your fancy – or perhaps you want to get out of all that fresh air and into some air conditioning. If you absolutely do not want to move your car and you’re willing to walk one (1) mile, below we’ve listed all the options located within a mile of Fringe’s centerpoint, the Orlando Shakes. There are some great places just outside the circle, obviously – and it’s tough to walk as the crow flies, so, literally, your mileage may vary – but in the interests of Serious Data Manipulation (and because we enjoy playing with maps), here’s the one-mile-radius list.
