Anyways, Joel and I splurged a few months back to go and see The Book of Mormon at the Fox Theater. It looked hilarious, and of course I have an insane love of musical theater, so we had to book tickets. There were no TDYs on the horizon, but of course you can never make plans in ink, right?
Well, we got down to the theater and parked in record time, but as we walked along the street to find a place for dinner, we were very discouraged to find that every place was packed, and the 45-60 minute wait wasn't going to allow us enough time to get to the theater. So, we walked a little further, and I saw a huge sign outside of a building tucked away, and so we went that way to see if it was a restaurant.
Do you recognize this place? How about these folks?
In case you didn't know, and I didn't before moving here, Oprah's new Network films a reality show at this restaurant. When we walked in, the nicest security guard in the world let us know that the show was filming, and we might end up on tv. Say wha? We were definitely in!
The whole staff was as sweet as could be, and I definitely enjoyed my dining experience. The food was traditional Southern Home Cooking, and needless to say that we did not walk away hungry. And by the way, if you ever get the chance to go, try their pear cobbler. It was life changing.
We walked back toward the theater, grabbed a drink, and headed in. For a Tuesday night, it was completely packed! Luckily our seats had incredible views. I was so excited for the show to start!
