Best Community in Central Florida?

July 27th, 2010

Orlando Weekly Readers Think So

The Audubon Park Garden District has won numerous “Best of” categories in this year’s Orlando Weekly Best of Orlando poll. This bohemian area scored in 14 categories — no other area in Central Florida had so many wins in such a concentrated area.

First place winners include Big Daddy’s for Best Karaoke, Juniors Diner for Best Diner, Bold Hype for Best Gallery, with Stardust Video and Coffee scoring double first place wins for both Best Coffeehouse and Best DVD Store. Park Ave CDs is in the unique position of two first place wins — Best Vinyl Record Store and Best CD Store, in addition to hosting DJ Kittybat, winner of Second Place in the DJ category. Redlight Redlight won Best Dive Bar and landed Third Place for Best Pub. Additional winners include Shad’g Hair Salon in the Salon category, Audubon Community Market for their organic Farmer’s Market on Monday nights, ABC in the liquor category, and APGD Director, Kat Quast, for Best Community Organizer.

Thanks to the efforts of Quast and the APGD, “the district organically became one of the hippest places in town,” says the Weekly. “[And] the area is thriving, both as a destination and as a livable and vibrant community.”

But we mostly knew that already, yes? And now other people know it, too.
