Local activities in near Disney / Convention Center for adults?

I will be attending a convention in Orlando in a few weeks near Disney / Universal.  I will be there for about 3 days, and I will have some extra time, both during the day and at night.  

I'd love to check out the area, but I am not interested in chain restaurants or bars....I'd like to get some local flavor whether it be a 'dive' bar or a five star restaurant. Though I will have a car, I would probably prefer to stay nearby or head to somewhere accessible by public transportation.  

Any help would be much appreciated!

    I would highly recommend Cafe Tu Tu Tango on International Drive. It is in a highly touristy area, however, it features tapas and local food. All of the art pieces are created by local artists and are for sale giving it a very unique ambiance! The food is spectacular and they even have live performers (belly dancers/mariachi bands/etc.) at certain times. If you are willing to drive a little bit, Winter Park (Florida) is just north of Orlando with a very cute downtown and awesome restaurants. If downtown Orlando is what you're looking for, try Dexter's of Thornton Park for lunch or dinner (also has a location in Winter Park) and a day time stroll around Lake Eola Park.

    Grap a burger Beaches & Cream Soda Shopmake sure you make a reservation or just get an ice cream from the takeout window. Walk around Seven Seas Lagoon at night and catch the fireworks at 9:30. It's magical! That's free entertainment at Disney. You might enjoy Downtown Disney for a meal, ice cream, people watching or movie. If you would like to see a beautiful town that the Disney imagineers designed, drive over to Celebrationfor a meal and a walk around the lake and talk to the locals about living in Florida. They're a friendly chatty group. All of the Disney hotels have bars and coffee shops. Just show the guard your drivers license and tell them you're hoping to get a meal. You can hop on the monorail and visit a few of the hotels. The Disney parks are expensive and you should be able to spend the whole day to make the cost worthwhile.
