52 Dates a Year

Having fun together!

Acadia Cafe & Mixed Blood Theater March 19, 2010

Filed under: Just Us,Moderate ($$),Out & About - Minneapolis/St Paul — Nikki @ 5:00 pm

On Friday, March 12, 2010 we had our date night at Mixed Blood Theater. For dinner before the show we ate at Acadia Cafe which was new to both of us. They have 30 beers on tap (“No crap on Tap”) and a good looking menu too! The show we saw, SOMEBODY/NOBODY, wrapped up earlier this week, but I’m guessing many of the shows are good. We went on a Friday night, but the tickets are half as expensive if you go Wednesday night so I think we’ll try that sometime for an inexpensive night out!

Chris’s Review
I have been to some local theater before, but never to the mixed blood theater. It was overall the standard low budget theater, but I think they are trying for a definite professional feel. The play that we saw was more of a comedy which was nice. Heavy plays can be a little off putting for a first time.

Having dinner and then heading over was great, and we had a really good time, even though it was a bit expensive.

Best Part: Quick dinner and time to talk with Nikki before the play, and having a nice stroll over to the theater.

Worst Part: The cost… the tickets were pretty expensive (~$30 each). I am sure that there are some places out there to get some deals. We did off set it with a pretty good cheap dinner.

RATING: 4/5

Nikki’s Review
I enjoy seeing live theater a lot more than Chris does…but I think we might have found a happy medium. Small theater shows seem more enjoyable to Chris than Broadway musicals so hopefully we’ll be able to find more local theaters to support!

Best part of the night: Dinner at Acadia was delicious & laughing out loud during the show was really fun!

Worst part of the night: There was an old lady who smelled REALLY bad…luckily Chris identified the source before we picked our seats so we could choose some far away from her!

RATING: 4/5
