By: Nick Lipton – Heat, humidity, and a late start couldn’t dampen the good time that is Orlando’s nightlife. The official Alli After-Dark party was a relaxed affair, but riders and friends could be found all over the city at various bars, pizza shops, and parking lots until late in the night. The Lodge threw the official party. This spot had bouncers in great shirts, and a lot of dead animals on the wall. After running into a few of the athletes, the party eventually moved on. Each place our group visited catered to us as if they had all been asked to throw the official after party, and at each spot we would find and recruit another athlete to join our roaming gang. By closing time we had all set up shop in a swanky bar where even after the lights came on people could be seen dancing, singing, and indulging in Orlando’s offerings.
