Orlando may not be big enough for the both of 'em, but, seeing as I've already been to ICEBAR Orlando while pretending to be a tourist, I'll have to be fair and see what Minus5 Ice Bar is all about when it opens next week. I'll just be sure to wear neutral colors and bring an ice pick ... just in case.
