So many bars/resteraunts to eat at...but be sure to check out if black sheep theatre on the 2nd floor might have an extra ticket for a performance and make an evening of it! Parking can be tricky...huge lots...be patient...somebody will leave...

Great food loud inside the restront. They said they are moving to a larger place so it should get better. We made reservations and walked right in and sat down. Service was great.
