Dinner for our evening concerts begins an hour before the show.  The artist each evening selects the meal of their choice; that meal is available for purchase by audience members.  We encourage the audience to eat in advance of the concert so the performer and audience alike can enjoy the show.  Cocktail service is available all night.
