How was your experience?
The show and the food were great. The retail price of $65+ might be a stretch, so getting them on Goldstar for $47 after fees was nice. We paid to park in front of the Museum of Discovery and Science clock for three hours. The garage is at least twice as expensive and about the same walking distance. I think valet is an option in front of the venue. My party and I were running about 10 minutes late, so we were pleased to find the show doesn't start until after dinner. Our server was amazing and very friendly. The bread arrived hot and delicious, especially with the orange butter. Salad was also very good with plenty of toppings and dressing. The main dishes were superb. My brother and cousin ordered the seabass and the portions were huge (a similar dish at Bonefish is $26 and is still a smaller serving). I chose the lamb osso bucco. Every bite of my dinner was better than the last. The meat fell off the bone. The sauce and tropical rice were great together. The bar had no problems making the mixed drinks we ordered. Drinks aren't included with dinner, but I can't remember what our total was. The show starts when all the plates are cleared. It was hilarious. The topics covered are just as described, ranging from modern politics to pop culture. I didn't find any of the material offensive. Younger audiences (high school and under) probably won't understand some of the topics. I will definitely go back next season for the new material.
