February’s Grand Prize Winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Al and the gang wish to congratulate James Whelan for being February’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show last Saturday. During our “25 Years of Memories” anniversary celebration we’ll be giving some lucky stiff a grand prize on the 25th day of each month. Next month it could be you! The next grand prize will be awarded on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

James, a.k.a. Bad Boy Jim (now that he is a ‘made’ man) came all the way from Thorntown, Indiana just to see the show! Imagine that. If you don’t know much about Thorntown, well it’s a small establishment out in the boonies – Boone County anyway. About 1,000 miles from our dinner show in Kissimmee. What a dedicated family member!

February’s Grand Prize Winner – “Bad Boy Jim” celebrates winning the grand prize with the cast from Capone’s.

February’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Bad Boy Jim’s favorites during the show include the songs. The tunes sure can get stuck in your head, huh, Jim? They are ‘toe-tapping jingles that really can mingle.’ Of course the audience participation isn’t anything to snub. Bad Boy Jim likes that too. The more the crowd gets into the act, the better our gang seems to play their part. You never know who might end up on stage. What a riot!

Speaking of riots, we want our guests to know that the weapons displayed in the show, which Bad Boy Jim isn’t keen on, are never rarely used. Al runs a tight speakeasy and knows how to keep everyone in line. Secretly, we think Bad Boy Jim was checking out the Tommy Guns in the gift shop. There’s all kinds of hotsy-totsy items for sell. From coffee mugs, T-shirts and key rings to posters of big Al himself. Be sure to pick out something to help you remember your evening with the wise guys and doll faces. After all, we’re all about special memories this year!

During the gangster shoot out, Bad Boy Jim was probably hiding out in the Four Deuces Lounge or other ‘private’ location. Why else would he turn down the grand prize of tickets to Universal Studios as well as free dinner show tickets (& and T-shirt) to return and become a repeat offender?! Something hinky was going on. The wise guys have insider information that Bad Boy Jim needed some cabbage for gas to make it home to Indiana. Our February winner left with a pair of Cs. Way to go!

The Rumble (News)

Be sure to spread the news about our anniversary show to all your friends. Bad Boy Jim found an ad for Capone’s Dinner & Show in some visitor information he picked up while on vacation here. Let’s hope that’s all he picked up! It’s said, “What goes on in Florida, stays in Florida.” We know that isn’t true in Jim’s case. He’s gonna tell all his pals about being a grand prize winner! Go ahead and sing like a canary!

Again, we’d like to congratulate February’s grand prize winner, James Whelan. Capone’s Dinner & Show hopes that the evening’s experience was the cat’s meow and will be a great memory for years to come.

Spring Training in Central Florida

Big Al here. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to do any peaching here on my blog. Things are really hoppin’ at my joint over at Capone’s Dinner & Show. Word is gettin’ out ‘bout my specials and the 25th anniversary party! Prohibition ain’t gonna stop the nightly party at my speakeasy!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring Training in Central Florida is when me and the mob are gonna get to use our bats for another game – not just for inspiration. Savvy?

If you’re a Braves cat, it’s easier to gun for a game in Central Florida. The Braves train jus’ up the road at Disney’s Wild World of Sports. West of Orlando, the Tigers training home is in Lakeland; Yankees in Tampa; Phillies in Clearwater and Blue Jays in Dunedin. There are other teams doin’ their Spring Training in Central & South Florida if you want to check them out on this really keen web site at www.floridagrapefruitleague.com.

Spring Training in Central Florida Schedules & Ticket Prices

Spring Training in Central Florida started February 25th this year and ends April 1st. The teams play every day, so there is plenty of Chicago lightning. There are “away games” and “home games” so be sures to check your team’s schedule an’ show up at the correct stadium. Some days they even play a double header! That’s ‘bout as much action as watchin’ bangtails!

Individual game tickets range from $15 to $60 depending upon the stadium and where you want to sit. You can buy a multi-ticket plan and see more than one game. Those are the bees knees. Some of the stadiums and teams even offer a meal plan including hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, soft drinks and bottled water. Keep in mind, most stadiums also charge for parking – somethin’ we never do at my Kissimmee attraction.

After the Game, Join the Gang!

Capone's wise guy swings a mean bat!Speakin’ of meals, I know that afternoon baseball game snack ain’t gonna fill any of yous up, so that is why I want to personally invite yous to my Kissimmee dinner show. Every evening Mama Capone puts out a spread unlike any other dinner show in Orlando. This ain’t no hash house either, it’s an Italian/American buffet fit for a high pillow. All-you-can-eat dinner and drinks (giggle juice too) is hard to beat! Plus, if you order your tickets online, I’ll make it right and let yous glaum them at half off the ticket price! That ends up – with the government’s cabbage (tax) – being only $35.46 for adults and $22.56 kids 4-12. Add a little extra an’ be treated like a big boss with a VIP upgrade.

March Specials at Capones Dinner & Show

Now for some serious matters… It’s well-known that Buggs Moran has been tryin’ to take over my joint for quite some time. It bein’ March and all, those Irish are startin’ to come ’round. Things are a bit hinky. To encourage support for me an’ my gang, I’m gonna offer 2 shows per night on March 11 – one early show at 5:00pm and a late show at 8:30pm.  Then on March 22nd we’ll have two shows – one a matinee at 1:00pm and the evening show at 7:30pm. Experience a little friendly competition here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, especially durin’ the Gangster Shootout! You won’t want to miss the action as my gang puts all this spring training to use!

Enjoy Spring Training in Central Florida and be sure to stop by my speakeasy and tip a few. Everyone on your team will have a good time at Capones Dinner & Show!

Kissimmee Dinner Show Breaks Away with Big Game Statistics

Super Bowl StatisticsCapone’s Dinner & Show will be closed Sunday, February 5, 2017.

For the past 2 years me and the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show did NOT offer a Super Show as an alternative to the Super Bowl. The mobsters took a much appreciated break. The gang is doin’ it again. We will be closed Sunday, February 5, 2017.

Instead of a Kissimmee dinner show that’ll knock your socks off, the wise guys & gals have put together some fun statistics that jus’ might knock the wind right outta you. The figures behind how much money Americans spend for the big event will make even the Big Bosses squirm. We’re talkin’ over $14.1 billion on merchandise (food, team apparel and TVs), $132.55 million on bets (of course gamblin’ is one of my specialties), an average game ticket price (as of this minute) is $4,744 with the largest sale at $74,928, and many more brow-raising expenses. Here are some other interestin’ facts ‘bout Sunday’s game:

Game Day –

  • Super Bowl LI pits the top-ranked scoring offense (Atlanta) against the top-ranked scoring defense (New England).
  • This is the ninth Super Bowl appearance for the Patriots, the most for any team in NFL history.
  • This is the seventh Super Bowl for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, who are 4-2, with their wins coming in one of the game’s greatest upsets (2001), the last back-to-back wins (2003-04) and one of the greatest finishes (2014).
  • Atlanta is making its second appearance in the Super Bowl. The Dirty Birds of 1998 advanced to the game after a stunning road upset of 15-1 Minnesota, then lost to a John Elway-led Denver team that won its second consecutive title.
  • Brady has never lost to the Falcons in four career games, throwing for 9 touchdowns, 1 interception and has his highest QB rating against Atlanta. Brady will attempt to become the first quarterback with five Super Bowl rings.
  • Atlanta scored 540 points this season, tied for the seventh-most in NFL history and 71 points clear of the next-best team.
  • The Julio Jones vs. Malcolm Butler matchup will be the most interesting and pivotal in Super Bowl LI.
  • Over 60 law enforcement agencies will be represented at the game (now do you wonder why us mobsters are staying at home?).

Super Bowl Ticket Sales –

  • The average ticket price of a Super Bowl 51 ticket is over $4,744 – Unlike our Kissimmee buffet, there are no half price tickets.
  • In 1967 championship game tickets topped out at $12 each, and the “secondary market” consisted only of ticket scalpers outside the L.A. Coliseum.

Advertising, TV & Radio –

  • Viewership in the U.S. is estimated at 111.9 million people.
  • The cost of Super Bowl ads is anywhere between $5 million and $5.5 million (CBS & FOX). A 30-second commercial for the first Super Bowl, played in 1967, cost a mere $42,000.
  • Historically the three most popular product categories that advertise in The Super Bowl have been 1. Automobiles 2. Motion Pictures 3. Food & Candy (does that include beer?).
  • Hashtags have replaced URL as the most popular call to action in Super Bowl advertising.
  • Of the 60 national ads aired from kickoff through the end of the game, 45% contained hashtags, 35% contained a URL, while Twitter and Facebook were each mentioned in 3 ads.

Social Media –

  • Super Bowl ads generated close to 3.3 billion social impressions during the game
  • Last year more than 15 million people saw tweets about the Super Bowl telecast, with these tweets seen 1.3 billion times throughout the night.  (by the way, yous can follow me too @alcaponesshow).
  • 57% of Super Bowl viewers say they will use Facebook and/or Twitter during the game.

Parties –

  • Super Bowl is the second largest food consumption day in America. We eat more food, only on Thanksgiving.
  • 1.33 billion chicken wings will be consumed.
  • 9 out of 10 fans prefer to stay put in their very own homes rather than venture out (one more reason the gang is not puttin’ on a show Sunday night); 17% will watch the game at a relative or friend’s residence; 3% will watch at a bar or restaurant, while 15% will be tuning into the event via their smart phones.
  • Next to the Fourth of July more beer is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year.
  • Hungry Howie’s predicts that they’ll sell 200,600 pizzas on Super Bowl Sunday.
  • Over the weekend, approximately 100 million pounds of guacamole will be eaten, approximately 14,500 tons of chips.

Other Fun & Interesting Stats –

  • Super Bowls are denoted with Roman numerals and have been since Super Bowl V in 1971. The exception was last year when the NFL promoted it as Super Bowl 50, not Super Bowl L. The Roman numerals are back this year for Super Bowl LI.
  • Almost 8% (7.7%) adults surveyed plan to purchase a TV for Super Bowl Sunday.
  • American singer Lady Gaga will headline the halftime show. It is unclear whether the singer will enter from the top of the dome for the performance, but you can count on a spectacular performance.

After all those wings bein’ devoured and money changin’ hands, a fun night at Capone’s will be in order. Regardless if your team wins or loses, a night with me and the gang is a great way to recover after a big game hang-over. Reserve your tickets at half off and enjoy savin’ money instead of shellin’ it out like yous  jus’ did on the football contest.

Capone’s Dinner & Show is open every night (except on Super Bowl Sunday). After takin’ a night off, the guys and gals will be super-charged to put on a hilarious show. I’ll see yous soon!

– Big Al
