Stapleton has produced a selection of tracks for well-known musicians, like Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, and Tim McGraw. He even produces outside of the country genre on songs like “If It Hadn’t Been for Love” from Adele’s 2011 album, 21.

The Weeknd: The After Hours Tour

In celebration of his most recent album, After Hours, The Weeknd takes the center stage for one of the most innovative, show-stopping performances of the summer. Fans are in for a treat because this multi-dimensional artist is bringing all of his own R&B, pop, and hip-hop flavor to the Central Florida community.

Most classic rock fans jump at the chance to see a rock legend perform live, but what if they had the opportunity to see four of their favorite bands all on the same day? This Thursday, July 9 at 4:30 p.m. at Camping World Stadium, icons Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, Poison, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts will put on an all-star performance for a one-night-only special in Central Florida. Prepare to have your head banging for one of Orlando’s most anticipated concert events of the summer.

Liven up With Def Leppard

Throughout one unforgettable music career, Def Leppard has produced a series of ground-breaking albums that left an irreversible impression on rock history. Originating in the late 70s, this classic rock band innovated the heavy metal trend by tampering with gritty guitar riffs and dramatic melodies. Soon after Def Leppard started getting recognized around the rock music scene, the band took off in a series of successful peaks with their 1983 studio album, Pyromania, and 1992 album, Adrenalize.

Mosh to Mötley Crüe

For 38 years, Mötley Crüe has remained a household name in the rock-metal scene, and the band has recently developed a new fan base of young listeners following the release of Netflix’s biopic The Dirt. Forming in Los Angeles, California, this quartet became a quintessential rock group in the 80s due to their smashing studio albums such as 1985’s, Theatre of Pain, and 1989’s, Dr. Feelgood. Over the course of one mountainous music career, the group has received three GRAMMY Award nominations, landed a No. 1 album spot on iTunes, and obtained a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Party with Poison

From playing local shows in Pennsylvania to selling out arenas on international tours, Poison has continued to headline the hearts of rock fans with iconic pop-metal music. Formerly known as Paris, Poison took a chance on betting their luck in the music industry. Thanks to their early self-promotion and D.I.Y. advertising the band was able to sign with Enigma Records and release their 1986 debut album, Look What the Cat Dragged In. Soon after, Poison would go on to top the charts with records like “Cry Tough,” “I Won’t Forget You,” and “Talk Dirty To Me.”

Join Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

Before she founded Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Jett was already in a leading role as a female pioneer in the world of rock music. Beginning her career at the age of 15, Jett joined the punk-rock band The Runaways and recorded hits like “California Paradise,” “Cherry Bomb,” and “Queens of Noise.” Afterward, she split her time to forming the indie label Blackhearts and committed herself to creating music opportunities for new artists.

Rock N’ Roll Over to Rosen

Enjoy this one-of-a-kind concert even to the fullest by booking your stay at a comfortable, convenient stay that’s close to the stadium. By reserving a room with Rosen Inn International, you’ll also reserve access to on-site luxuries like plush beds, two swimming pools, and complimentary shuttle transportation to your favorite Orlando theme parks. We of course want you to rock responsibly, which includes ourselves. Our new hotel features help create a healthy space for guests and staff, such as clear protective borders between you and front desk staff, cleaning common areas and touch points more frequently, floor markers to help everyone maintain proper social distancing in common areas, use of hospital-grade disinfectants in rooms, as well as more hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the hotel. For more information and booking details, click “Check Room Availability” or contact us at 407-996-1600.

Vegan Burger with tomatoes and greens

Orlando’s diversity in culture and lifestyle is renowned in the Central Florida region. It’s great to see this diversity naturally extend into dining, which means healthy and safe options exist. Yes, there are chefs and wait staff in Orlando knowledgeable on the needs that would have their clients with digestive and allergic conditions wary of ever setting foot in a restaurant. For a moment, we point our cutlery in their direction. Let’s get to eating—safely.

The Sanctum

715 N. Fern Creek Ave.
Orlando, FL 32803

Board certified Nutritionist and Chef Chelsie Savage pours her knowledge gained during cross country travels and exploration of plant-based foods into The Sanctum’s menu. Her menu blends perfectly with partnerships developed throughout the community. Local partners help see her vision come to fruition: serve healthy food and educate the public on the benefits of this diet.

In addition to being healthy, diners are excited to see Mexican, Asian, and Italian fusion dishes stream out of their kitchen. Patrons dig into huge bowls filled with healthy ingredients and have the option to indulge in comfort foods such as pasta and sauces both vegan- and vegetarian-friendly, burrinis, and a beautiful assortment of sides. Most of the menu is available to go as well as some raw ingredients provided by the partners.

Proper & Wild

155 E. Morse Blvd.
Winter Park, FL 32792

Brought to you by the creators of The Sanctum, this sister location in Winter Park serves a lot of the same items as The Sanctum. This location serves up more flatbread options, sammies (sandwiches), and vegan “burgers” taking place as the main dishes on this menu. Same as their sister location, take out is available.

Norma’s Plant Based Cuisine

351 S. State Road 434
Altamonte Springs, FL 32714

Some of the best surprises come in the smallest packages. This café nestled in a book store focuses on vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. We suggest this place is best for lunch or an early light dinner. Menu items include Asian and Mexican fusion dishes, and have a really nice selection of Latin rice bowl dishes. If a sandwich is more the fare you desire, the menu here reads like any typical sandwich shop—the catch being every item is at least vegetarian. Get an extra dose of fabulously rich foods on the Extra menu. Hidden here are a variety of arepas, pan de bono, vegan desserts, and other items you might consider for your main dish.

Market on South

2603 E. South. St.
Orlando, FL 32803

This local’s fave in the Milk District houses two incredibly popular plant-based restaurants. Dixie Dharma and Valhalla Bakery.

Dixie Dharma, as the name implies, focuses on southern comfort food. Despite southern food’s reputation for being rich in meats, we think you won’t miss the bacon and other animal protein. Popular menu items like the Carolina BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, their version of a barbecue pulled pork sandwich, will have you second guessing that it isn’t made with pork. The kitchen also serves great healthy alternatives to sloppy joes, chili dogs, and mac n’ cheese. There is so much to enjoy here, so arrive early and hungry. Leave room for dessert.

Valhalla Bakery is heaven yet incredibly sinful. Every item is strictly made without eggs and dairy, making each item vegan-friendly. We guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference with these treats as each is as succulent as the traditional, non-vegetarian kind. For those who like their brownies completely supersized and jacked with peanut butter crunch, candied Oreos, and ganache, the Death Bar is an absolute must. If you filled up on dinner and have room only for a light dessert, you may have a little better luck with the towering cupcakes and thick slices of cake. We kind of think you may be taking some dessert back to the hotel.


2401 Curry Ford Rd.
Orlando, FL 32806

Hidden inside the Hourglass Social House next to Foxtail Coffee Co., this vegan eatery relishes in conspiracy. How can vegan food actually taste this good? They offer some breakfast items but specialize in blowing your taste buds away with vegan “crunchwraps.” The combination of ingredients on their menu reveal that these chefs have Southern and Mexican cuisine in mind. The Crunch Mac is stuffed with vegan beef crumbles, mac & cheese, along with vegan-Mexican inspired accompaniments. Other items like the Cali Crunch and LBGT Crunch mix Californian cuisine with a Floridian-Mexican twist. If you visit, may we suggest grabbing a freshly pressed coffee drink at Foxtail Coffee Co. In all, this dining trip will satisfy your urge to eat a hot, crunchy wrap stuffed with incredible healthy comfort foods.

Yard House

8367 International Drive
Orlando, FL 32819

You may be surprised to find this high-end sports bar chain restaurant on the list, but their alternative options beg the addition. It’s easy to find locally-owned restaurants that cater to sensitivities and plant-based diets. It’s honestly something else to have a major chain offer the same individualized service. The Yard House offers three substitute menus: one for gluten sensitivities, one for vegans, and one for vegetarians. How these menus work is ingenious. There’s no combing through a massive menu searching for icons marking the food safe for your needs. Instead the menu is presented in full (in a chart format) with a column for modifications based on your dietary needs. It’s extremely straightforward and bypasses all the pretty pictures that may make you a little sad for missing out on other foods.

Veggie Garden

1216 E. Colonial Dr., Ste. 11
Orlando, FL 32803

For those who follow our blogs, you’ll know that Orlando has a thriving and beloved Asian community. Our obsession with bubble tea and pho drives us into Orlando’s Asian restaurants on a weekly basis. Few of our favorite Asian restaurants offer vegan and vegetarian menus, but here the focus is on a newcomer, Veggie Garden, which focuses on Vietnamese food. Pho, a savory Vietnamese broth soup, typically builds on a meat-based stock as the base of the soup. Veggie Garden offers vegan and ovo-vegetarian options so you won’t have to miss out on this incredible dish.

Plant-Based Dining at Rosen Inn International

At Fountain View Café and Lite Bite, you’ll find several plant-based options to fuel you for a day of exploring around Orlando’s restaurant scene. Whatever you find on your journey, bring back leftovers to your guestroom to store it in the mini-fridge. If it needs to be reheated, the microwave will come in handy. Other little delights like the single-serve coffee/tea maker add comfort and coziness. If you have a special need, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. If you’re planning your next Orlando vacation now, consider staying with us. Click the button in the upper right section of this page to start booking today.
