The weather was Chilly but no wind. Inside it got hot quick due to body heat from everyone.. I wore Jeans and tshirt with a light jacket. .
The weather was warm. I wore Shorts, short sleeves.
Parking was close, easy and free.
Lots of options for food and drink close to the theater. People brought in drinks from the wine bar next door.
There is ussually a lot of street parking in the neighborhood, but we went on Friday night and Cruising Grand caused the street to be blocked off. There's still parking within a block and a half but be aware that you can't drive on Grand to get there on Fridays.
Try the library lot if there's no parking on the street.
Check out the great Salvadorean restaurant just around the corner.
The Patio theater is tucked behind and between a couple streetside vendors/eating spots. Easy to miss the first time.
The venue at The Patio Playhouse is casual but for myself being from the big city, I believe that when going to the theater to see professional artists, a more dressed up and neat attire rather than shorts/jeans is more respectful.
The weather was comfortably cool evening. I wore a long casual skirt, dressy top w/jacket.
This is a tiny theater with general admission. All the seats have a good view, but arrive early to get the best positions.
Loads of places to eat in downtown Escondido. There are soft drinks and snacks at the theater, and you can get wine and beer at the deli right outside.
If you go on a Cruisin' Grand Friday night, there's still plenty of local street parking if you don't mind walking a few blocks.
Beware the air-conditioning in the middle rows - wear a jacket with a high neck, or bring a scarf!
There is a deli right next door has great sandwiches.
Fun bar/restaurant next door that we went for a quick cocktail during intermission.
I wore A long sleeve shirt and it was quite warm in the theatre. Some were fanning themselves, however, it was opening night and I hope that the room temperature issue is resolved..
Go to Vinz across the patio from the playhouse for drinks and dinner after the show. Unexpected nice surprise! Good drinks, excellent meals, easy prices, fun atmosphere.
I wore a sweater, flip-flops, etc..
