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!

Early Bird Special and a Theater Performance Too!

Who doesn’t love an early bird special? It’s not just for retired folks. People of all ages are seeing the benefits of eating a little earlier and having time after eating for fun or relaxation.

Early Show and Early Bird Special

Capone’s Dinner & Show often offers early shows and matinees. One such early show is fast approaching. On April 6, 2019, an early show will be performed at 5:00 p.m.  It’s an early bird special and a theater performance too! Get in for half price – call in your reservation at 407-397-2378 or order tickets online. Have a great meal and see a delightful show. There will still be daylight when you leave the theater. Time to have fun at other places, or go home and relax. Other early shows are listed as they are scheduled and can be found on the Showtimes page.

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!

Last-Minute Valentine’s Plans

It can happen to the best of us. We wait until we’re scrambling and then have to make last-minute Valentine’s plans. Or… one Sweetheart expects something more than is planned; one Sweetheart hasn’t planned anything at all, or the plans that have been made fail miserably. Any of these scenarios can result in a whole lot of not-love going around. Here is some advice from the Wise Guys & Gals to keep these scenarios from happening this evening (or Saturday) with YOUR Sweetheart… even if you are reading this and making last-minute Valentine’s plans.

Plain and simple last-minute Valentine’s plans… take your “Gal” or “Goon” to a dinner show at Capone’s tonight!

There are still a few tickets available for tonight’s Capone’s Valentine’s Show. The early show option is extremely limited, however, tickets are readily available for the late show (8:30 pm). Either way, it will seem as if you’ve planned this evening for weeks! Purchase tickets online, pick up your date and show up for the show! Or, purchase tickets, call a cab or Uber and arrive at the show ready to enjoy the unlimited drinks included in your show ticket.

Tickets are only $34.99 adults and $22.99 kids (plus tax and gratuity). There still may be a limited number of VIP Tickets available at $46.99 adults and $31.99 kids (plus tax and gratuity). However, since you’ve waited until now (like a true flat tire) and are making last-minute Valentine’s plans, don’t count on those VIP tickets.

Last-Minute Valentine’s Plans 2 nights, 2 shows

Saturday has Two (2) Shows too!

With V-day being on a weekday, perhaps you’re planning to celebrate your love this weekend instead of tonight. Capone’s has you covered there too! This Saturday, February 18, there are also two show times available (5 pm and 8:30 pm). Tickets are available for both of these shows…at least for now. Even though it’s not really, really last-minute Valentine’s plans, attending the show on Saturday gives you a few more days to make it extra special. HINT: Spring for some roses or jewelry to go along with the dinner show tickets!

Pre-order a boa &/or a fedora and get into the spirit & have fun!

Costume accessories are definitely the cat’s meow. Have fun while you’re out for the evening! Get into the era! Cheap accessories can be found in the gift shop if you forget to purchase them online with your tickets. For those of you wanting to be treated like a big boss or significant skirt, Capone’s VIP tickets are the way to go. VIP tickets include:

  • Early admission (enjoy Al’s Four Deuces Lounge)
  • Casino chips for table games
  • A take-home souvenir shot glass
  • Tickets for the Dinner and Show
  • VIP Seating offering our best seats in the house
  • Priority Seating – We seat Valentine’s Day VIP guests first (provided you are on time)

Capone's Valentine's VIP Experience

If you still need to make last-minute Valentine’s plans, just go to AlCapones.com and order Valentine’s dinner show tickets and relax. You’re going to have a great time. Your special someone is really going to enjoy the show, and you’ll come away smelling like…well, a dozen roses! Please take note: the roses are YOUR responsibility…Al don’t want nothin’ to do wit’ dat. 😉

The gang hopes everyone will join them and have a great Valentine’s day today. If not, Al hopes you have a really, really good alibi!

Happy V-day everyone!

Experience an Orlando dinner show while the crowds are smaller, before the busy holiday season is here.
