No matter "who" our featured speaker is, you are sure to enjoy yourself. And of course, you'll also be well fed.
How about bringing a friend in the door as a new member? We love "friends of the club" and are happy to give each member $50 for every new member they bring!

"Check in" for all of our NINE fall dinner meetings at the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom/Tap Room restaurant in College Park is 4:30 - 5:30. Each meeting will begin at 5:30 with an entertaining story from our host, Steve Gunter, before we hear a history talk and prayer from Thomas Tart. Dinner is served at 6:00! Then it will be "the famous Mike Bianchi show" followed by Phil D'Aniello and the Skill Game, the UCF report from Marc Daniels and the high school players of the week with Dan LaForest. Then it's time to greet our featured speaker of the night! We will be done and on our way home by 8:00.
What is the Orlando TD Club? We are a wonderful "social club" filled with friends, old and new, who love to meet for dinner and "talk college football!" Our membership includes working and retired professionals including attorneys, bankers, doctors, dentists, other medical, CPA's, sales people, financial advisors, car executives, mortgage specialists, realtors, store merchants, etc. In essence, whatever you might need as a consumer, our club has it! When one considers the terrific people we have as members and the superb food we always serve, you will quickly see how much fun it is to be with us no matter "who" our main speaker is! That's why, if you are looking for some new contacts and friendships, the Orlando TD Club is a wonderful club to be part of.

All dinner meetings are held on a Monday night. Our speakers for 2023 will be announced in May and June. You can expect a new name or two as well as club favorites our audience really enjoys such as Charles Davis, Andy Staples, Matt Stinchcomb and Tony Barnhart, just to name a few. All that said, we will always give you wonderful speakers and great value for your membership!
Mike Bianchi, our popular MC, is not only the top sports columnist for The Orlando Sentinel, he's the host of his own daily radio show on "96.9 The Game." And lucky for us, Mike gives us his own college FB commentary at every meeting.
Marc Daniels, the wonderful radio voice of the UCF Knights and also the popular mid morning host with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF report at every meeting that excites our growing UCF membership.
Steve Gunter, the terrific host and owner of the Tap Room, always provides a great welcome, a story and a funny SEC video before each meeting. And yes, Steve loves the Razorbacks!
Of course, no dinner meeting can be complete without a terrific history lesson and prayer from Thomas Tart, the former Gator FB star who is also our club historian.
The Orlando TD Club is proud to honor it's own! During the high school season, Dan LaForest, who is also our Facebook coordinator, shows us entertaining videos and allows us to meet the Orange and Seminole Co. high school players of the week.
Our location for all TD Club dinner meetings is the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom, next door to The Tap Room, just off Par St. and I-4. And yes, not only is it a great venue to host a meeting, The Tap Room is a fabulous place to have lunch and dinner at!
WHO is your favorite college team? Whoever it is, you'll have plenty of company! All Gators, Knights, 'Noles, Irish, Vols, 'Canes, Dawgs, Tigers, Wolverines, 'Heels, Trojans, Lions, VA Cavaliers and heck, even Buckeyes and 'Bama people are welcome at our club too.
All dinner meetings are held inside the "Historic Dubsdread Ballroom," next to The Tap Room restaurant. With a full staff of wonderful people and great food at every meeting, THIS is the place to be!
