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 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 an Astros or 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 and the Astros are down the road the other direction from Capone’s at the Osceola County Stadium. Further to the east are the Nationals trainin’ in Viera. Further to the west are the Tigers in Lakeland; Yankees in Tampa; Phillies in Clearwater and Blue Jays in Dunedin. There are other teams doin’ their Spring Training in Central 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 starts March 1 this year and ends early in April. 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 $35.30 for adults and $22.46 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 during the week of St. Patricks Day – one early show at 5:00pm and a late show at 8:30pm on March 18th and March 20th. 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!

Valentine’s Weekend at Capone’s Dinner Show

Capone’s Dinner & Show offers the best plan you can make to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or weekend). Reservations at some Orlando restaurants are difficult to get on this sweetheart holiday. Movie theaters are packed on any weekend, but Valentine’s weekend will be even busier. For these reasons, and many more, you’d best have your plans in order, and your plans should definitely include Capone’s!

Valentine's Weekend at Capone's

Saturday, February 13th – 2 shows – 5:00 p.m. & 8:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 14th
– 2 shows – 5:00 p.m. & 8:30 p.m.

Capone’s Dinner & Show makes it easy for their guests this year with 2 nights offering 2 shows. Surely one of four shows will work into your busy weekend schedule! The early show (5pm) offers everything the late show (8:30pm) offers which includes:

Capone’s has been celebrating Valentine’s Day for over 20 years, entertaining guests of all ages. The ability to appeal to such a wide range of ages is one of the reasons for this Orlando dinner show’s success. Another reason is the entertainment value. The show is funny, action-packed and has just enough romance to top off your Valentine’s experience. The food quality has dramatically improved over the years and the menu now features many homemade dishes, including fresh homemade pasta! A new meat carving station and fresh salad bar ensure there is something for everyone, even the kids. Add to this the unlimited beverage selection, which includes over 15 choices; beer and wine too!

Kissimmee Dinner Show Breaks Away with Big Game Statistics

Super Bowl 50Last year was the first year that 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 7, 2016.

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 $14.3 billion on merchandise (food, team apparel and TVs), $200 million on bets (of course gamblin’ is one of my specialties), an average game ticket price just over $6,350, and many more brow-raising expenses. Here are some other interestin’ facts ‘bout Sunday’s game:

Game Day –

  • At 39, Peyton Manning will be the oldest quarterback to play in a Super Bowl.
  • Cam Newton is one win away from being the first ever QB to win the Heisman, National Championship, NFL MVP & Super Bowl.
  • This will be the first Super Bowl featuring opposing starting QBs who were drafted No. 1 overall
  • Both of these teams made the Super Bowl with the coach they hired after firing John Fox. Carolina with Ron Rivera and Denver with Gary Kubiak.
  • 72 footballs are used for the game and more than 700,000 footballs purchased for the NFL each year.
  • Over 60 law enforcement agencies will be represented at the game (now do you wonder why us mobsters are staying at home?).

Ticket Sales –

  • The average ticket price of a Super Bowl 50 ticket is over $6,350 – 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 –

  • The cost of Super Bowl ads has hit an almost absurd $5 million for a 30-second spot, up 11% from last year.
  • 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 replace URL as the most popular call to action in Super Bowl advertising.

Social Media –

  • Last year there were 25.3 million tweets during the Super Bowl  (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 –

  • 1.25 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.
  • Domino’s Pizza expects to dish out 11 million slices of pizza on Sunday.
  • Over the weekend, approximately 100 million pounds of guacamole will be eaten, approximately 14,500 tons of chips.

Other Fun & Interesting Stats –

  • Normally, Super Bowls are denoted with Roman numerals and have been since Super Bowl V in 1971. But this year, the NFL announced this was to be Super Bowl 50, not Super Bowl L. But don’t worry; the Roman numerals will be back next year with Super Bowl LI.
  • The age difference between Cam Newton, 26, and Peyton Manning, 39, is 13 years, 48 days—the largest gap in Super Bowl history.
  • Beyoncé will be the first female to repeat as a halftime performer.

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!
