We started the evening off with a 20 min uber ride to dinner that was within walking distance from the venue. The restaurant was HUTCH. Just go eat there if you are in the area….don't think about it, just do it. We went on a Wednesday. They specifically have WINE DOWN WEDNESDAYS! Meaning $5 Wine…yes please! They were great table wines too. The blend was my favorite.
For an appetizer we got the Hutch Fries
black pepper, truffled cheese
fondue, giardiniera ketchup 8
YES YES to the truffled Cheese Fondue! I wish there were two of those instead of the ketchup!
Hindsight I should have thought about what I wanted before hand since my AMAZING Black Bean Burger came with fries already! So I substituted for the Brussels sprouts with bacon! Anyway, back to the Black Bean Burger…I wish you could taste the tastes I tasted! It was one of the best I have ever had. Dare I say I would go vegetarian for that burger… I digress, the boyfriend had the steak and fries which he was happy to get even more fries! Did I mention the fries? And we finished off with a perfect Espresso!
Good thing we had to walk to the venue….
The Blue Man Group - I have been having a hard time describing them to people because I didn't want to ruin it for them if they went. Its a type of slap stick comedy and artsy humor. It is a little pricey but if you approach it as a theatrical performance (which technically it is) the price matches what you would pay to see a play. Just bite the bullet and go…you will be happy you did. I would say I didn't think the seats really close (poncho needed section) were really worth it. I would try to get a few rows behind that. You didn't get any special crowd interaction really. No matter where you are you will get interaction, just maybe not blue man interaction.They went up and down the aisles no matter where you were … well except the balcony, sorry.
And in our selfie era they do stand out in the foyer after the show so you can take a selfie with a blue man! It is really pretty cool to be so close to them! I would probably attend other shows in different cities but I would not see the same show twice.
