Aren’t you lucky? You get to read 2 of my articles this month!! The rule of thumb is that you are in
charge of either writing about the event or getting someone to do it, and since I forgot to ask someone at the last meeting – here I am again in this issue!! Our afternoon last weekend at Ed Fletcher’s dinner theater was so much fun. We started our meal with the salad bar – very fresh romaine lettuce with all the usual toppings and several salad dressings to choose from: pasta, potato, and three bean salad and rolls. The dessert table had many delectable choices from carrot cake to Boston cream pie and my choice, lemon meringue pie. Each table had a number and when the main courses were ready you went up in table order. There were 2 carving stations with beef and ham, chicken in a thick gravy that tasted like chicken and dumplings, and my very favorite onion-crusted salmon. The salmon was a whole large filet that you just cut off your portion and was as moist and good as any entree ordered in a specialty restaurant. Promptly at 1 pm the play, Savannah Sipping Society, entertained us for the next two hours. We laughed the whole time. I think we have found a gem. The production runs until July 7th and then they take a summer break until September 1st. The show changes every two months and they have matinee performances on Thursday and Saturday and evening performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
