Stopped by a fairly new bar in downtown Sanford last night (east of Orlando, 25 minutes from UOR if traffic not bad), Bitters & Brass. It's nice, all craft cocktails, including absinthe. Worth a visit if you're in town. But talking to the bartender ... The owners are opening a tiki bar a couple blocks away, hopefully by the holidays. "The Suffering Bastard" will be a true Smuggler's Cove-style tiki bar with like 45 different drinks. It's being designed by a long-time UOR artist who did a lot of the close-up work for WWoHP and other attractions. He also wrote the premiere book on tiki bar design along with the guy who designed both Trader Sams. Obviously there will be some nautical items on the walls, and I'm told they make look familiar to those of us who used to ride Jaws. Again, not open yet, but if you're a Universal or tiki fan, sounds like it's going to be a destination bar. "SufferingBastardTiki" on Instagram if you want updates.
