Well Blogesphere, since my last post I’ve been a busy little bunnie…
The last month or so has been chocked full of fantastic events throughout the town. I’m going to try to update my friends and readers with this post… I’m also going to try and be a little better on the posts here!!!
Las Olas Wine and Food Festival …
So to end the month of April was lucky enough to win two tickets to the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival from the always amazing New Times Broward Palm Beach!
The journey to the #LOWFF all started with a tweet from @CleanPlateCharlie “Win Tickets to Las Olas Wine & Food Festival and New Times Cupcake Battle”… Being that I love free things and I love poetry, I figured I would give it a shot! I proceeded to hop onto their site and compose two separate Haikus. Now, the post said there would be two pairs of tickets awarded;“One pair of tickets will go to the haiku that is “liked” the most. The other pair will be awarded to the writer of the haiku that the New Times staff chooses.”
Well to make a long story short, I won a pair of tickets; not for being “liked” the most by people, but from the staff of new times!!!! (thanks Guys!!) This what they staff had to say and my winning entry;
The second winner of a pair of tickets goes to Bad lil Bunnie Leah for a haiku that balanced beautiful prose with PG-13 humor!
Here is a sample of her work:
Dirty Little Cake
You’re Begging for a Licking
I’m Gonna EAT YOU
CPC was also impressed with Bad lil Bunnie’s ability to defend herself against Baz via haiku.

Now if that wasn’t enough, the NEXT day I got to attend…
The Deerfield Beach Wine and Food Festival
This was the inaugural year and the event was fantastic!! There were dozens of local restaurants to sample, plus wines and beers available to try out!
My favorite food and the MOST anticipated place I tried was El Jefe Luchador… They had the Ultimo Dragon taco with Carnitas, Hoisen Salsa and Kimchee Slaw; Definitely not your fast food crappy taco!!!
This was their Taco... MOUTHGASMIC!
PS- I was also Lucky enough to check out their new place a few days later during the soft opening; if you go to Deerfield Beach and do not go there, you are missing out, also check out their sister joint Charm City Burger Company.
The next event was one of the most anticipated food events by my friends and I…
The Gourmet Truck Expo at Boomers
On May 11th, I sat at work eagerly awaiting 6pm so could leave for this event. Why you ask, because the people of Broward and Palm Beach counties rarely get to experience the glorious deliciousness of all the Miami food trucks!!! So how amazing was it to have dozens of these trucks finally in MY backyard!!!
Out of all the trucks that were there, I finally got to sample offering from Red Koi, Dim Ssam a GoGo, and Kona Ice… which had Tigers Blood (strawberry coconut) flavored ices!!!
Fortunately for me and my friends this will be happening on a monthly basis from now on!
Later on that month, I attended a charity event disguised as an 80’s Prom! This event was held to raise money for Stand Up 2 Cancer, Hosted by the Beautiful Maria De Los Angeles and organized by the Incomparable Emily Taffel-Schaper .
This “Prom” Featured several Burlesque performances from Isadora Bull, Betty Pickle, and Francean Fanny to name a few and 3 of the most spectacular drag queens from the area! Our DJ, Peter, of Prose Promotions really “kicked out the jams” old school 80’s style for a great even all around, plus we raised money for a fantastic cause!
Here’s my favorite Photos courtesy of the amazing Social Media Puto A.K.A. Carlos Miller.
Awesome Group Shot
oh next up is not for the faint of heart…
This was a great experience… Not only was I lucky enough to WIN a 3 day VIP pass to this convention but the good people at Exxxotica had a “Ladies Free Friday” promotions.
This promotion enabled my girls to not only attend for free but to also take full advantage for the VIP Lounge! Generally these tickets are $70 each and let me tell you this place was PACKED with ladies! Aside from my girls, a few of my guy friends met us for this adventure!
Highlight of the whole thing; meeting the legendary Ron Jeremy-

None of the other photos were very blog friendly/appropriate… this was a very sexy event. If you want to learn some new things to spice up your love life, meet some real live Adult Video Stars, or are looking for something very interesting to do on that weekend; Exxxotica is a MUST DO!!
last but not least
The Frank the Unicorn Radio Program ” Electric Frank-a-Loo”
I can not express how much I adore this internet radio show and the hilarity that ensues! I’ve even been lucky enough to be a special guest!
On Sunday, May 22nd Frank and Beans, the hosts of the show held their 2nd live broadcast from World of Beer in Coconut Creek, Fl. Aside from having a great time, this event was put on to raise money for a fantastic charity called Abi’s Place in Coral Springs.
Before the radio program started, the guests were treated to some kick ass breakdancers and 80’s music… Oh yea, i forgot to mention this was also an 80’s themed event so we were all dressed in old school gear! Raffle tickets were sold to raise the money for charity. When a raffle ticket was purchased for the charity we also got Garbage Pail Kids sticker cards! All of the raffle prizes were donated for this great cause, including gift certificates from Pizza Fusion, A bottle GT Vodka “The smoothest Vodka around” and Ice Jacket- the modern drink chiller, to name a few…
Once the boys took the stage, we were treated to a rousing game of “How Unicorn Are You”, a discussion about the all time best 80’s movies and of course, Little Frank, the face of the “Frank the Unicorn Program”!!! My friend Stefani ended up winning a burlesque class for 5 at the show as well!! Here is one of the group shots from the show-

After a short hiatus, the show will return live on June 26th, so if you’d like to check out the show online its Sunday Nights from 7-9 pm EST.
So as you can see, I had a pretty busy few weeks but as always it was spent with some of the best people I know doing activities some people can only dream about!!! All I can say is, Whats next???
Until the next time, Bunnie
