Spotlight: Paper Sale, Florida Dinner, 'Bye Bye Birdie', Indoor Farmers Market & Lionel Richie

Every Friday afternoon, Mark Baratelli, publisher of The Daily City, shares his picks for can’t-miss weekend events in Central Florida.

Girrrrrl Rifle Paper Company has taken over the universe and when they have a sidewalk sale THEY HAVE A SIDEWALK SALE. 70% off samples! WHaaaaaat!!! It starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at their Winter Park store. Rifle Paper Company — they invented flowery stationary.

A small Florida pop-up restaurant called Mockingbird is doing a 7-course progressive dinner focused on Florida ingredients and flavors Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Kitchen House and Culinary Garden. For tickets go to mockingbirdcfl.com.

Bye Bye Birdie, the musical, is being put on by Central Florida Community Arts Sunday at 3 p.m. at CFCArts Black Box Theatre. Learn more here.

A farmers market is essential to city life. Sweating through one is not. So Indoor Farmers Market was created. Over 1,500 locals attended its test run in June so it's coming back for one day only, this Sunday. Shop for beef, pork, bread, in-season produce and more from 100% local growers, sip mimosas and coffee, eat lunches and desserts from local food makers, discover new culinary brands and products, and enjoy it all in crisp cool air conditioning! The Indoor Farmers Market is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday in downtown Orlando. For details go to downtownindoorfarmersmarket.com.

And finally, Lionel Richie is performing Sunday night at Amalie Arena in Tampa. Mic drop.
