Win the Royal Treatment at Medieval Times in Toronto

Ever wanted to step back in time, to the days of knights, princesses, and kingdoms?  At Medieval Times here in Toronto, you can do just that. My daughter and I have been a few times now and enjoy the show every time we go. It is a great family fun night out and we love taking guests along with us. Our first time there we were with 20 friends, our second we took along another friend and on our most recent visit we had friends with us again.  It really is like stepping back in time for a night. From the moment you enter the castle, you are taken back in time. As a family we have celebrated birthdays, Mother’s Day and brought her guest

As you enter the castle you find out which knight will be yours for the evening, and can check out the bar, souvenirs, and even the see the horses. We have cheered for the green knight, the black and white knight and the blue knight.  In the pre show, my daughter was even knighted on one of our recent visits.

You will then be called into the castle where you will be treated to a four-course dinner that you eat with your hands, and a show of jousting and amazing horsemanship. The show is full of fun and pyrotechnics. The entire family will enjoy it.

Perfect Date Night In Toronto: Getting Hitched at Mysteriously Yours

So last week was the boyfriend’s birthday so I was looking for something special as a way to celebrate. Since we were going to be celebrating on the Friday night I decided on taking in  dinner and a who done it at Mysteriously Yours. It was opening night for the new show. “Getting Hitched” is now on at Mysteriously Yours.

A night at the Mysteriously Yours dinner theater is well the perfect date night. Think about it, you get a great meal created by their new chef, Justine Vott. Just after dessert you get to solve a mystery.

Let’s talk food first, a good meal is always something you are guaranteed to get at Mysteriously Yours.  With a great 3 course menu you can definitely find something to enjoy. There are even several gluten free options on the menu. I started with soup of the day as it was a cold night and wanted something to warm me up. With a choice of 4 main entrees including a vegan entry it was hard to choose what I wanted but I went with the Maple Dijon Chicken while my date chose the Provencale Beef Stew. For dessert we both had the Salted Chocolate Pot De Creme. Those we were dining with had the lemon tart and that looked good as well. I loved my choices.

Now I have been going to shows at the theater for years, I first took my mom to a show back in 1996. Yes, almost 20 years ago when they were at the Royal York Hotel. I love the cheesy fun factor of a good murder mystery night.

With a new show, there is always a certain buzz in the air. Birgitte Solem and Brain Caws wrote “Getting Hitched” and I loved the dynamics of the cast. It was nice to see a face in the crowd of actors that I didn’t recognize but you know may know him from his time on Degrassi The Next Generation, Tim Melissis. A new face at Mysteriously Yours is Paddy Forde, who is originally from England. I loved him in dual roles as Hitch and his brother, Archie.

Overall the new show makes for a great night out and perfection for a date. Thinking of planning for Valentine’s Day? I highly recommend it.

 

A Night Out With Mysteriously Yours

2014-05-09 22.39.45

On Friday my night my daughter and I were invited to the VIP night at the Mysteriously Yours dinner theatre here in Toronto. Just so happened it fell on the the 20th anniversary of seeing my first murder mystery with them. For the last 20 years our family has loved each show we have seen.

The setting is this: the Prohibition Era, the 1920’s and Al Capone is the man you don’t want to mess with! At East Side Marion’s Emerald City Night Club is having its opening night when all of a sudden SOMEONE is murdered! What? But the question is now #WhoDunItTO?

Twenty years ago it was my mom and I who attended our first murder mystery when the Mysteriously Yours shows were in the Royal York Hotel. My mom was in visiting and we decided to go shopping and then head to a show. It was a night that had us laughing and captivated as we tried to figure out who dun it!

Now my daughter and I enjoy heading to the shows. She is 16. This show’s title is Speakeasy and has each guest entering the the theatre having to have a password to set the Speakeasy tone.

On our tables they had not forgotten about Mother’s Day weekend, which as a mom I was delighted to see. Loved the little ways they added the 1920’s to the room with the bank vault on the ceiling.

It was a fun show with characters like East Side Marion, Al Capone, Dorothy, Knuckles, Sam and Mae West. My daughter even got in the action playing the part of Silent Rachel the killer…figuring out who dun it would take skill. The audience participation had us in giggles.

The food was good as always. Each person had a variety of appetizers, mains and desserts to choose from. For me this time I had the beef and it was scrumptious.
