We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.

Had a good time. Called in advance and house was very helpful in seating our party front and center. My husband has a hearing loss and that. sometimes causes him to miss a lot, but he was able to hear just fine. Thank you for your consideration.
