The dinner was actually in the middle of he performance, however, I’m placing it here just for a little less confusion about what is going on. There were clues being given all the time so it made for an interesting time trying to concentrate on eating, conversation and clues!
The meal was great. We had some really tasty beef stew, cowboy beans and cole slaw with cornbread. And later dessert, apple cobbler, was served.
