Lovely review of "Unsafe at Any Speed!" We have a 5:30pm show today. Come on down this afternoon and hear about the time I had to explain to a farmer why my car was in the upper branches of his tree.

One man show highlights emotion, humor and absurdity of a heavy topic; living with disability. by Gabby Landsverk, Sun Sailor Newspapers. Michael Merriam, of Hopkins, has seen a lot of crazy things while traveling; an impressive feat, considering Merriam is legally blind.

Mixed experience. Someone stole our reservation for 9, which I can't blame the employees for completely, but it got us off on the wrong foot. Since there was nowhere to put us in the restaurant area, they crammed our party of 9 next to the door in the deli area, were we got a gust of cold wind everything some one came in or out, which we pretty much constantly. Because we weren't in the main area, the staff kept forgetting about us, so it took forever to get food and not all of our food showed up even after two hours. The waiter offered us free desserts, but then vanished for almost fifteen minutes when he went to get the dessert for the one person who took him up on it, and we had to leave for a show so we couldn't wait.The food itself, when it arrived (the food arrived at our table in slow drabbles over the course of 15 minutes), was good enough that I might give Cecil's one more chance..
