Ah Orlando, you’ve done it again. I love this town!
You’ve managed to round up the most liberal pop star on the planet at her peak, and right down the road you’ll have a Tea Party fueled, Tax Day Party with some of the most popular, conservative stars in politics.
In between? Beautiful weather, Friday afternoon Happy Hour, and you.
They say Ga Ga has one of the best concerts going right now, the fact that she can fill the Amway Center is plenty proof of that. Ga Ga (real name Stefani Gerrmanotta) is also one of the most politically outspoken artists out there, she won’t accept an award without advocating equal rights for the gay and lesbian community.
You might be able to listen to her music and take it or leave it, but there aren’t too many that can change the channel during one of her TV performances.
A Tax Day Party, or Tea Party downtown is hardly news. Last year, you couldn’t go a month without a rally or protest of some sort. This one however has a very impressive line-up of speakers.
Conservative favorite and possible Presidential contender Herman Cain will be speaking at the Lake Eola band shell along with Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who’s only been in office 4 months and already has people begging him to run for President. They’ll also be a few more speakers, and the master of ceremonies will be Bud Hedinger from WFLA.
So, there you have it. Something for everyone, right in the middle of downtown Orlando and the Magic also start their playoff run tomorrow night.
It’s going to be a great weekend, get out there and enjoy it.
