We attended the performance of the Kingsmen, after a delicious Endless Buffet dinner, (would recommend the buffet to anyone) along with our twin grandsons. We all enjoyed the evening.

We enjoyed seeing Ryan and Friends. Ryan is a talented ventriloquist who keeps his shows family friendly, and is very funny! He doesn't use any foul language and I appreciate that!
