Orlando lounge legend Lorna Lambey (photo by James Dechert)
Man, everyone is totally broken up by the news of the Red Fox Lounge closing this weekend. Justifiably so. A huge part of that is because of the legend that local lounge performers Lorna Lambey and late husband Mark Wayne have cultivated there over decades. It's hard to imagine any setup as perfect as the Lorna vibe at the Red Fox so soak in the magic as much as you can at this weekend's final performances (Oct. 31 and Nov. 1).
But you can't keep a good woman down, and the incomparable Lorna will make the debut of what could possibly become her new regular gig the following Saturday (Nov. 8) just down the block at Rocco's Italian Grille, which will begin opening later for entertainment. Look for our preview in the Selections of our Nov. 5th issue.
