Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater Remains in the Ring

When you think of dinner entertainment for a night out on the town, what comes to mind? Most likely your first thought is not to attend a professional wrestling dinner theater. Yet, six times a year, you can join a sold-out crowd and enjoy such a dinner show.

In 2014 the new Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater was mentioned in an article about new restaurant attractions. While newcomers were welcomed, we also said goodbye to other area dinner shows that closed their doors. Now, 5 years later, the Manor has seemed to have reached a happy platform and is still in the ring.

By limiting the number of shows performed to 6 per year, it is easier to attain a sell-out crowd. The wrestlers also have plenty of time to work on their performance. You see, the storyline at this professional wrestling dinner theater is every bit as important as the physical nature of the performance.

Performances and Storylines

2019 Schedule for Wrestling Dinner Show

The performance is all about good and evil. Lady Golden Eyes had entertained the village with only the best talent around. Meanwhile, a jealous Lord Darkness had other intentions in mind. He cast a spell upon the Manor and half of the performers turned evil. When both leaders disappear, chaos ensues and it is every warrior for themselves. It’s village vs. village in a contest to see who will win the prized Manor Medallion. Who will you cheer for?

Furthermore, the actual wrestling at the Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater is not “real,” however, the acting is. It takes a great amount of skill to throw a fake punch. Consequently, if you don’t think it hurts to be tossed about a wrestling ring, think again! These actor/wrestlers are very fit performers. Their energy is contagious as well.

Fine Dining (in a sense)

Dinner courses are served throughout the show. The menu consists of tossed green salad, oven roasted chicken, green beans or vegetable medley, mashed potatoes and dinner rolls. Additionally, cheesecake is served for dessert. Beverages include ice tea, lemonade, coffee and water in which you replenish yourself at a beverage station.

Reserve Your Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater Tickets

Consequently, if you are not able to get into the July 19 show, reserve tickets at a future performance. Shows are tentatively set for September 27, November 29 and December 20. Check out their website for next years’ schedule at manorprowrestling.com. You may also send an email requesting reservations, especially if you are looking for a group discount.

VIP packages are also available which includes a photo and T-shirt. The cost includes the 2-hour show, three-course dinner, 7 pro wrestling matches, and a meet & greet after the show.

Finally, the Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater is performed at Osceola Heritage Park, located next to the Silver Spurs Arena at 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34744. If you go, enjoy the blend of body slams and spandex; dropkicks and dropped jaws. This is sure to be a fun, unusual night out on the town.

Unless you have a set tradition in your family for every holiday, including this special day for Dad, families often find themselves scrambling to make plans and buy gifts.

Father’s Day Neck Tie giftPlans for Father’s Day range from dinner out, excusing dad for the day so he can fit in a round of golf, go fishing, and to simply let him grill dinner for the family and relax. Popular gifts include, yes, the traditional necktie, cologne, electronics (including phones and tablets), wallets and slippers. Not so traditional gifts are also fun. These include a personalized whiskey barrel, customized grilling tools, T-shirts and DJ lessons.

Free Beer Here! (and at SeaWorld Orlando this Summer)

Capone’s has always offered free beer for their guests, however, this summer SeaWorld Orlando will also be giving away a brew or two! The summer promotion begins May 25 and continues through September 2. This longtime tradition at SeaWorld is returning again. We say cheers!

History of Free Beer at SeaWorld

Busch Gardens in Tampa offered free beer years before SeaWorld did. They were, after all, both owned by Anheuser-Busch, maker of Budweiser. It only made sense to offer a taste of their product at the theme park. It wasn’t much, but park visitors enjoyed the sample.

Around 1992, their sister park, SeaWorld Orlando started offering cups of beer. It was a nice touch, especially on a hot day. Even the Budweiser Clydesdales paraded through the Orlando theme park twice a day. Then in 2009, a ‘last call’ was announced. The cold draft stopped flowing (for free). Little did we know at the time, Anheuser-Busch was selling SeaWorld Orlando’s parent company to the Blackstone Group.

How to Get Your Free Beer

SeaWorld Pass Members can enjoy a free 14-ounce domestic brew now. They do not have to wait for May 25, 2019. The complimentary beer is available to guests 21 years of age and older from 10:30 a.m. to one hour before the park closes. To get your free beer, visit the Patio Bar next to Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen. You will be asked to show a valid Pass and photo ID to redeem. Once summer begins, all adults will have access to their free beer.

As was mentioned at the beginning of this post, Capone’s Dinner & Show also offers free beer. The wise guys and doll faces have been serving it since 1992! Prohibition or not, suds are served each evening at this joint. Beer, wine and other adult beverages are included in your ticket. Unlike SeaWorld, you don’t have to stop at having only one free drink. However, you are asked to drink responsibly. You will need to show a photo ID as proof of age.

Speaking of age, Capone’s also offers ‘virgin drinks’ or ‘mocktails’ and many other beverages. This is great for the kids in your group (and teetotalers).

Other Free Stuff

Join the millions of visitors (21 million annually, to be exact) to visit SeaWorld this summer. Take advantage of the free beer. Of course, there are many other, more important, features about this Orlando theme park. New attractions have opened, including the recent opening of Sesame Street land! Also, on select nights this summer, Electric Ocean is sure to be spectacular.

If you like free beverages, you might also like free attractions. Check out our post about the free fun things to do in this area. Skip the busy theme parks for a day and give your wallet a break.

After a day at the theme park or free attraction, join the gang at Capone’s and ‘tip a few’ with Al’s pals. Enjoy the cabaret show and delicious buffet. It’s a blast that everyone in your group will enjoy. See you soon… and cheers!

History of the Early Bird Special

The first written record of an “early bird special” dates back to July 12, 1904. There was a sale on men’s summer underwear at a department store named Olds, Wortman and King. I guess in Oregon, July would still be considered ‘early’ for summer underwear? Later in the 30s, stores used early bird specials during the first few hours after a store opened. Get your fedora on sale while they last!

Furthermore, early bird specials began appearing with food-related deals in the 20s. Ads promoting “early bird breakfasts” were adopted by restaurants across the country. The term didn’t get paired with dinner and supper until the 50s. However, it was highly popular in Florida, especially in the 80s and 90s. This is also when ‘early bird specials’ became associated with the elderly. It was even written into a script in a 1985 episode of The Golden Girls (set in Miami, Florida).

Other Early Birds

If you’ve heard the phrase “the early bird catches the worm,” you’re familiar with an old English proverb. It dates back to 1605! The phrase is often used to motivate teens to get up early, encourage employees for success and describe morning people.

Early Bird Dinner TheaterIf you live or have visited Clearwater, Florida, you may have heard of Ed Fletcher’s Early Bird Dinner Theatre. If you are in the area, we highly recommend checking it out. Like Capone’s Dinner & Show, this theater has been around for over 25 years. It is a popular attraction in Tampa Bay. Their shows are funny and entertaining. Dinner is buffet-style provided by an onsite catering company. Additionally, a full-service bar is on site. Unlike Capone’s, it is not open every evening and the show varies. Visit them on the web or call 727-446-5898 for more information.

Regardless of when you like to eat, it’s hard to beat Capone’s Dinner & Show in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.  Attend the upcoming early show and enjoy an early bird special fit for your entire flock. It doesn’t take a jailbird to figure out the advantage of getting out early!
