It's been a tough week for all of us. If you're like me, you're probably feeling sick with social media and CNN binging. The hateful act at Pulse Nightclub on June 12th has placed a dark cloud over this city and we're all looking for answers.

I'm not going to share with you a list of our usual date night best bets this week. It will be back next week. Now is the time to heal, mourn, pay tribute.

This week I have compiled a list of as many events that I could possibly find designed to allow you to pay your final respects and send lofundve to those so senselessly lost and those of us struggling to make sense of such a terrible tragedy. Please, keep them coming. I will continue to add them all week long! Email me at [email protected].

We will heal. #OrlandoLove #OrlandoStrong #OrlandoUnited
