Why not Drip this weekend?
So it’s the weekend and you’re looking for something different to do. You don’t exactly feel like dressing up, but you are wanting to let loose. What do you do? Why not check out Orlando DRIP?! It’s Night Life + Arts & Culture + Theatre all in one, plus you get to be messy!
DRIP may be one of Orlando’s best kept secrets if you are into in-your-face (and all over your body) entertainment. The performances are held mainly on Fridays and Saturdays with an occasional show on Thursday. Most shows are for 21 years of age and up, although they do offer a rare show where minors are allowed if accompanied by an adult.
The venue is located at 8747 International Dr., Orlando, FL 32819, behind Denny’s and Señor Frogs. They are in the same building directly behind Denny’s. So if you are looking to experience an Orlando dinner show, you’ll have plenty of places to grab a bite to eat either before or after the show. Doors usually open around 8:00 or 9:00 p.m. with the show starting soon after. The performance lasts about 50 minutes. Most people will stay for the party after until midnight. Where else can you go and drink orange, yellow, red and blue beers on draft? They also serve wine, champagne cocktails, sangria and saki shots.
This is one show that will appease your artsy friends. The performances are highly visual…and messy. Imagine colored sand, raining paint and flying water which most likely will land on you. The show’s music is composed by David Traver of the Blue Man Group, so you know the senses will be excited.
DRIP Orlando Show Tickets
Tickets range in price from $35 to $79 and can be purchased online. If this is something you really want to do, be sure to pre-purchase your tickets. Only 100 people are allowed into the show. There are no seats. This is “rock concert” entertainment and you are in the splash zone (the entire building is considered a splash zone). The audience stands throughout the show.
Tickets include a white DRIP t-shirt. Be sure to dress down. Jeans, t-shirts, flip-flops and anything else you don’t care to ruin is best. Before the show starts, you have the opportunity to have your shirt styled and cut by one of the DRIP fashionistas. You can even get a little messy before the show starts! Drinks are not included in your admission ticket. Parking (first come first serve) is free, however, it is limited so you might want to consider the $5 parking in front of Señor Frogs or next door at Hooters.
Parties and Events
This weekend Orlando dinner show might also be a great way to celebrate a birthday or a location for a bachelorette party. Even corporate events are held here. They offer plenty of bathrooms, a prep kitchen, green room, backstage area, audio/visual equipment and other amenities that appeal to the meeting planner. They can even come to you and offer off-site performance installations large and small and have mastered the ability to contain and control the mess.
Even if you aren’t planning to go to I-drive on a weekend, you may want to now. If you are a neat freak, get over it! You’re going to get messy. You’re going to have fun. You’re going to DRIP!
