80. Take a date on a swan boat tour of Lake Eola (boat rentals are in the park near South Rosalind Street and East Robinson Avenue).

81. It doesn't matter if you're vegan or the biggest carnivore in town – after you stagger out of a downtown bar, there's no more welcome sight than the vegan hot dog cart. Wolf down a Holiday Dog; in the morning you'll be glad you skipped that run for the border (

82. Go to an improv show at SAK Comedy Lab, but don't sit in the front unless you like public humiliation (29 S. Orange Ave.,

83. Take advantage of MAYL, the OCLS home delivery service. That's right, the Orange County Library System will actually deliver books to your front door for no charge (

84. Pet a panther at Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge (10525 Clapp Simms Duda Road,, or any other Florida rescue they've taken in to rehabilitate, from ring-tailed lemurs to fallow deer.

85. Jump feet first into the shockingly (but also refreshingly) cool springs at Wekiwa Springs (1800 Wekiwa Circle, Apopka). Or reserve a cabana at Wekiva Island and make new friends while partying your ass off (

89. Enjoy Walt Disney World in the altered state of your choice.
