Ate at Panera Bread in the essence of time, but many places local to the theatre to eat. Need to allow time for parking and waiting to be seated and served.

The weather was chilly, but seasonal for the area.. I wore a dress and heels befitting going to an evening at the theatre. Dress varied, but most people were mostly business casual or better..
