Memorial Day Weekend Plans – Fun in the Orlando Area

What are your Memorial Day weekend plans? If you’re looking for something fun to do, here are some suggestions from the gang.

Happy Memorial Day! Memorial Day Weekend Plans

Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer for many Floridians. What are your plans? Chances are, they include a dip in the water – the pool, the ocean or at one of our many great Orlando water parks. You may even be planning a barbecue. If you’re looking for something fun for the entire family or group of friends, make your reservations to attend Capone’s Dinner & Show. We’ve got a great show ready for you this Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend Plans for the Beach

Florida's BeachesIf you’re plans include the beach, please follow the driving rules. As you approach the beach entry, turn on your lights and keep them on at all times while driving on the beach. The driver side window needs to be rolled down and music kept at a minimum. Depending upon where you enter the driving beaches, there could be one-way driving, so pay attention to the direction you are to drive in. There is also NO TEXTING while driving on the beach. There are also several no-parking zones in Daytona Beach Shores and in New Smyrna Beach. Ask the attendant at the beach entry if you are uncertain of any local laws. As always, swim near a lifeguard tower. There are often threats of rip currents. Know how to swim out of one. Be on the lookout for sharks as well. NSB is the shark bite capitol for a reason.

Orlando Water Parks

Orlando’s water parks are sure to see huge crowds this weekend. Because Wet ‘n Wild is no longer open, and the newly anticipated Volcano Bay at Universal will be packed (first weekend open), the other water parks are sure to see high attendance. For information about all of the many options for Orlando area water parks, view our Water Park Attractions listing.

Cooking Out

Do your Memorial Day weekend plans include a barbecue? Here are some safety tips from the wise guys:

  1. Fire: Control and watch it at all times and be ready to extinguish it. Know how to treat burns.
  2. Food Safety: Bacteria will multiply on food from the time it comes out of the fridge, until it reaches 165 degrees F. After serving, get the left-overs back into the refrigerator. You’re more likely to get food poisoning that the flu. Not fun.
  3. Instructions: Grills, gas or charcoal, and smokers all have very specific ranges of operation. Know these before you light up.
  4. Location: Keep a minimum distance from your house, garage, trees, patio and play areas. Fires and smoke don’t mix well with these items.
  5. Gas Safety: Inspect your gas grill for problems. Bugs and other critters can climb into little places causing gas to flow where it shouldn’t. At the first sign of problems turn off your control valves, turn off the fuel tank, and disconnect everything.
  6. Charcoal Safety: The number one problem with charcoal grill is lighting the charcoal.  Lighter fluid turns to a heavy gas at a relatively low temperature and should be avoided if possible.
  7. Grease: Grease that collects in your grill builds up over time. You need to keep your grill clean.
  8. Cancer: Cooking (by any method) of meats (particularly red meat and chicken) at very high temperatures until surface charring occurs can cause cancer causing substances (Heterocyclic Amines (HCA)) to form.  To minimize the risk use marinades, do not over cook foods and keep grill temperatures under 600 degrees
  9. Smoke: Smoke from your grill or smoker contains carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances. Enjoy the smell from a distance.
  10. Alcohol:  Grilling and smoking require some clear thinking, so keep a clear head and save that drink for after the fire is out and someone else is dealing with the dishes.

Dining In – Orlando Dinner Show

Cooking out sounds like a lot of work to me, so why not skip the BBQ and head over to Capone’s Dinner & Show for a great meal and fun entertainment. Our buffet is all-you-can-eat and our wait staff will make sure the drinks keep coming. Take a cab back to your home or motel and send out all the text messages you want! Order your tickets online now and get them at half price!

Finally, whatever your Memorial Day weekend plans, Capone’s Dinner and Show would like to take this opportunity to remember all who gave their lives in service to our nation. We also want to thank all of our veterans and active-duty soldiers for their service. We appreciate the sacrifices you and your family have made for our freedom. Be sure to take advantage of our military discount.

After your day of activities, we’d like to invite you to an evening of fun and dining at our Orlando dinner show. Our theater is air conditioned and we serve up a great dinner buffet and unlimited drink supply. Happy Memorial Day everyone!

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Happy Cinco de Mayo from the Capone’s Gang!

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! It’s a great excuse for a party, however, some things are just better left for others to handle. Al & the gang will leave the sombreros, tequila, tacos and mariachi bands for other establishments to feature. We’re busy with our all-new show!

Cinco de Mayo at Capone's

Some things are just better left for others!

New Show at Capone’s on Cinco de Mayo

The new show is faster-paced, hysterically funny and filled with loads of action. There is more audience interaction than ever before. Not only do the men get to have some fun on stage, now the ladies and children (seasonal) will also get to play a part! It’s all a part of our 25th anniversary party, where YOU get the presents.

Purchase Half Price Tickets Now

As always, we feature cold Bud Light Draft and other drinks – all included in your ticket and unlimited. Skip the tacos tonight and fill up with a huge selection of fresh, hot Italian/American favorites. With such a large buffet, you’ll be ready for a siesta. Good luck with that though… You’ll have a hard time getting any rest during our new show. It’s raucous fun and the gangster shoot out is full of action. Everyone has a chance at winning prizes!

Skip wearing a sombrero tonight and sport a fedora or a feathered boa on Cinco de Mayo. Spend it with the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show. Instead of Mexico, you’ll think you’ve landed back in prohibition times in the heart of gangland Chicago. If not, there are plenty of other late-night parties to go to if you want to wear a sombrero and celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Orlando.

Wherever you decide to enjoy the festivities, don’t forget to plan ahead for a designated driver or a cab….. drink responsibly.

Diviértase y Disfrute de la Celebración!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Are You Ready?

The Easter Bunny has come and gone, now for some Mother’s Day gift ideas. With Easter being late this year, there are a lot of folks that might be surprised to know that Mother’s Day in Orlando is just around the corner! So soon, in fact, that many sons, daughters, husbands and significant others are not ready for this special date. Are you?

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

How will you honor the mother in your life this year? The #1 gift is giving flowers. While this is nice, it should be way down on your list of thoughtful ways to show your appreciation. Flowers are pretty, but come on, they die! It’s not practical and most moms I know, really don’t WANT them for Mother’s Day. Plants are a little better, but at least offer to help water it every once-in-a-while.

Then there are the gifts of candles and perfume. Nice smell, but just a way to make up for, or cover up the dirty laundry/odors Mom has to put up with each day.

If you’re giving her a technology product, make sure it is for HER. Don’t give her the fish finder you’ve been dreaming of, or the gaming system the kids have been begging for. Personally, I bought 3 iPods for my children years before someone was thoughtful enough to buy one just for me!

The spa/massage/pampering gifts are very nice; you’re getting warmer. Jewelry is great – if you can afford it and the selection matches her taste. Save the receipt in case she wants to exchange it. Chocolates and candy are nice – if Mom isn’t on a diet or weight conscious. If she is checking the scales, help her out by not placing these temptations near her.

Taking her out to dinner is an excellent Mother’s Day gift idea. Not only does it give her a break from kitchen duties at home, but she also gets to spend TIME with her loved ones, which is quite often what a mother really wants on Mother’s Day. Time that is spent honoring her, not forcing her to plan a meal, clean up, entertain, care for others, etc. Time when others are caring for her.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas - dinner show ticketsMother’s Day Orlando Dinner Show

If you’d like to cover more than one traditional gift for mom this year, take her and the entire family out for a dinner and a showCapone’s Dinner & Show! Go ahead and get the kids up early and serve Mom breakfast in bed. (PLEASE clean up the kitchen before you let her see the mess you’ve made!) Print out the special Mother’s Day page Capone’s has online and insert it in her mother’s day card. Give it to her early in the day, so she knows that by late afternoon/early evening, you’ll have the kids all cleaned up and ready to go to the show.

Pick up any nearby friends and relatives on the way and get ready to have a blast! Capone’s is giving all mother’s a flower on Sunday evening, so if flowers are a tradition as a gift for you, Capone’s has you covered. If taking her out to dinner is tradition, Capone’s has you covered. If taking her to a show is tradition,Capone’s has you covered! It’s fun for all ages, so the mother in your life doesn’t have to choose between an evening with adults or an evening with kids – everyone gets to enjoy dinner & a show!

Tickets are just $32.99 per adult (when you order online) and $20.99 per child (4-12). If you have a large group, you can get a group discount, but you’ll have to call 1-800-220-8428 (ask for Lori) to find out more details about group rates. It’s a simple solution for a great gift for the mother in your life. Hope you’re ready for a fantastic Mother’s Day in Orlando! We are!!
