Last night as a surprise Valentines treat for the girls, we went out to a dinner theater – The Pirates Dinner Adventure. We in for more than bargained for!
We went to Pirates Dinner Adventure Web Site and Found this page before making reservations. Don’t order your tickets online, if you respect your wallet, and definitely don’t buy them at the window. Each month the dinner theater places these tickets on sale. By calling them on the phone, we saved nearly $100.oo over the list price for this show for the four of us. The only way to get guaranteed first or second row seating is to call them on the phone reserve and prepay.
Now that we have the preliminaries out-of-the-way, and you know how to save some serious loot, we can discuss the theater. They told us on the phone to show up 1.5 hours before show time. They said the would be snacks (They used a fancy word like odours, but that is not a word that represents my social class.). Hearing they would have snacks and fearing LA traffic, we took them at their word and arrived 1.5 hours early.
Check in was rapid and we got into the main hall, where they took our photo and tried to sell it back to us. Then they offered us weird meat balls on a round bread like thing, and some other strange finger foods. Fortunately there was a man standing in one of the gift shops offering celery, carrots, and broccoli, Now that’s a snack! We cleaned him out. Not much else to do, we sat down in a room that looks like my moms living room, and the kids got really bored! Nothing happened for the entire hour and a half. I am thinking, that they were hoping we were Bipolar and would enter into a manic moment at some point in the hour and a half they made us wait and we would clean out the bookstore. Unfortunately for them, they make medicine for that now, and we did not bite. So we sat there and watched our assets grow.
Our Advice to anyone contemplating attending the show, show up about 30 minutes before a weekday show, this should be more than ample time to get through the ticket line, and your kids will not threaten mutiny.
