  1. Wow! That's really exciting!!! My History Teacher self is green with envy!

    1. Yes, I'm a total history nerd. You're welcome to join us at the 6pm seating, if you can get tickets!

  2. This is so exciting! I'm embarrassed to say I'd never heard of this until just now, but I took a little spin around their website and and it looks AWESOME! What a great way to celebrate the holiday, and I'm glad you got it nailed down in advance.

    1. Thanks Gal! I'd been fretting about there not being enough space, and have been waiting for months for reservations to open up for this year.
