Jack's Birthday at Pig Floyd's

Jack Graham held a birthday celebration at Pig Floyd's Urban Barbakoa (1326 Mills Ave N, Orlando, FL 32803). I never turn down an invite and it was a chance to  try some barbecue. Other friends were there, and the evening was made more festive with some colorful childhood birthday caps.

Pig Floyd's Urban Barbakoa offers you meat that is slowly-cooked all night, to give a succulent and tender barbecue that is second to none. Generously seasoned with sourced herbs and spices, the meat is packed with flavors unique to South America. There is also a selection of local beers, wines and iced beverages that pair well with the food.

The place was packed. My pulled Pork sandwich was decent but not really memorable. I haven't returned since.

Jack recently had a sold out acoustic guitar concert at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts (1905 Kentucky Ave Winter Park, Florida 32789). He put out a call for art to be projected on the stage behind him and I submitted one of my Blue Bamboo paintings. I let him know that if he ever does this again, I could easily edit a series of my sketches to fill the allotted time slot.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
