We ate at "The Lion's Share". It was on the list for SD Restaurant Week which started yesterday. They had "Happy Hour" until 6 PM which was quite nice.

Description

Book by Brian Hill

Music and Lyrics by Neil Bartram_

The Story of My Life_ tells the story of two childhood friends and how their friendship profoundly defined their lives. Thomas Weaver is a best-selling, award-winning author. Alvin Kelby was his best friend for 30 years. But time can test the bonds of any friendship, and when it does, Thomas calls on the only resource he has – his stories of Alvin – to learn where things went wrong. A richly melodic musical, The Story of My Life is a soaring tribute to the power of friendship and the people who change our lives forever. The play received 4 Drama Desk Award nominations for outstanding music, lyrics, book, and musical.
