RED Episode #71: RunDisney Virtual Race Series July 5K, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin, The Basket at Wine Bar George, and Raglan Road


RunDisney’s Virtual Race Series celebrates 80 years of Marvel.  And we are so excited because... our medals came in the mail!  You might have seen our unboxing live on Facebook.  This month’s medal is one of my favorites... Ironman!  We earned it running the path between Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside resorts.  It was so beautiful and a great change of scenery to get in our training runs!  Dana was still taking it very easy post-surgery, while Aimee was doing her assigned speed work.  


Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ turned 3 this past Friday, and we saw that he would be there to celebrate at the same time we’d be up at Disney completing the 5K.  We featured his thigh high chicken biscuits last summer in Episode 35, which were incredible!  But we have never had his Fried Chicken and Doughnuts or Hummingbird Cake, so we went to explore those menu offerings.  Of course, we had to start with Fried Green Tomatoes because of our southern roots.  All this amazing food, and we also got to talk with Art Smith himself!  Turns out, he’s been a runner, too!


The Basket at Wine Bar George is a great walk-up window at Disney Springs that offers the chance to create picnic basket and has a menu of small bites we can’t wait to try, but we were there because they have made one of our favorite treats from the Disney Parks into a refreshing frozen alcoholic beverage, the Frozcato.  Pineapple Dole Whip, Vodka, and Moscato... what a way to beat the heat in the midst of the hot Florida summer.  Over at Raglan Road, Dana had an offering called Tri Wishes, a malty Red Ale from Crooked Can. They offer it in the restaurant or at a stand outside the restaurant to cool you off while you are walking around Disney Springs.
