Performing Arts Venue
“This is a great getaway for an evening of entertainment. Everything from symphony orchestras to rock performers to stand-up comics. We’ve seen the Nutcracker performance presented each year in Nov-Dec by Central West Ballet. They do a wonderful job. We’ve also seen Richard Marx and Billy Ocean. Every seat is a good seat. Highly recommended. ”

“Some of the best beer around! A bar-b-cue or taco cart with homemade tacos and awesome eats can usually be found on the patio most Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy some popcorn fresh from the machine and play some Score 4, FuseBall, Giant Jenga or Shuffleboard. The patio in the back has a cool vibe. ”
