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

Al and the gang wish to congratulate Diane Boudreau for being July’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Sunday, July 25th. 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 Friday, August 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

Diane, a.k.a. Mammo (now that she is one of Al’s gals) came all the way from Boston just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated dame! We’re fairly sure Mammo has some connections from the Boston syndicate. While her winning is a little hinky, Al assures us it was all above board. He should know. Nothin’ goes on in his joint without full disclosure.

Yous sees, the night of Mammo’s visit, lady luck was on her side. The wise guys asked this random broad to pull the winning ticket. She pulled her very own number! What are the odds? Well, one in several hundred. Better than odds at pickin’ 6 numbers, but still very unusual. With this being Mammo’s first visit to our speakeasy, we know she didn’t have connections to set up a sting. So here’s to a square winner!

July’s Grand Prize Winner

“Mammo” was the big winner of July’s anniversary prize, but this ain’t her. Seems she is the shy type and put her son up to take the fall, er a, used him in the evidence photo.

July’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Mammo’s favorite part of the evening was the great servers and cast. It’s hard not to fall in love with our goons and gals. It doesn’t take a pushover to appreciate their hard work. Servin’ drinks, takin’ shots from plugs, all while being a vital part of our new show. We also think our guests are the bee’s knees. They take good care of our gang, and we’re happy to welcome them into ‘the family.’

The least favorite part of Mammo’s experience was “nothing.” Her words exactly. Our chopper squad didn’t get near her & there were no promises of cement shoes – we swear! With great food and a great show, at a great price…what’s not to like? If you need more reasons to love us, read our countdown list. Capone’s Dinner & Show remains the best value of any Orlando dinner show.

Mammo’s prize was a pair and a half Cs in her pocket, plus a C note to spend in our very own gift shop. Hold on though, that’s not all. She also received 4 tickets to Capone’s Dinner & Show! We’re fairly certain some new clothes and shoes are headed for Mammo’s closet. She’ll probably drop a dime on her husband too. Afterall, he is the one that informed her of our joint. Hopefully, Boston is ready for this swanky kitten! Of course with tickets to our show, her mob will always be welcomed back. We love our repeat offenders.

Again, we’d like to congratulate July’s grand prize winner, Diane Boudreau. 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.

*show time and ticket prices are subject to change

Enjoy Getting to Know Other Guests at the Caribbean Carnaval Dinner Show!

Round tables, set for 10 guests, are elegantly set and provide a cozy atmosphere. The show itself is limited to about 150 people when food is served inside covered areas. At most about 200 guests can be accommodated including the outdoor patio area. This provides a nice atmosphere to get to know other guests.

Diners choose from a salad station, hot pots, a carving station and a min-dessert station. The menu is comprised buffet-style and includes dishes such as Ropa Vieja (shredded beef), tomato and sweet plantains, jerk chicken, grilled snapper, coconut rice, salads, sides and mini desserts. The Mojo-roasted suckling pig from the carving station draws a lot of attention. Sous Chef Carlos Castano states, “People are amazed to see the suckling pig.” There are plenty of options on the salad bar too, including grilled pineapple, organic greens, pinto bean and shrimp salad and more. Other venues on Universal Studios properties may feature a variation of one or two dishes, but most of these items can only be found at this Orlando dinner show.

Adults will enjoy the rum punch. They also provide a fruit punch which is alcohol-free. Limited beer and wine selections are also served. Kids attending the Caribbean Carnaval dinner show even get their own buffet!

An Island Escape

During dinner guests are entertained by performers mingling with the diners. You’ll be welcomed by a stilt walker and other friendly islanders. You may even have a custom song performed just for you!

Following dinner, a lively show is performed. Musicians and dancers take guests on a “tour” of the islands through song and dance. Many guests get in the action. Afterall, who can resist a congo line?

Savor the vibrant colors, delightful tastes and rich sounds by ‘escaping’ to the islands. Are you ready to do the limbo, jump into the conga line or take part in the festivities? Purchase your tickets. Call (407) 503-3463 or purchase online at universalorlando.com.

If you’d like to experience an evening during the prohibition era, Capone’s Dinner & Show is a short drive away from the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Al’s gang of goofy gangsters and delightful dancers are ready to take you back in time to the 1930’s Chicago gangland. Tickets are half price when purchased online. So enjoy the Caribbean Carnaval, then grab your gang and come to Capone’s. It’s a blast from the past.

Favorites Revived in New Show at Capone’s

The new show at Capone’s is reviving some old guest favorites. When something is liked, it is nice to see it come around again. Unlike sweater vests, hair metal bands, velour tracksuits or mullet hair cuts, some things are pleasing to experience again. Such is the case with some of the ‘new’ features in Capone’s anniversary show.

More Audience Participation

Audience participation has always played a large role in the show. It is definitely a guest favorite. However, now there is more audience participation than ever before. Guests participate from the very beginning when they must say a secret password to enter the speakeasy. From that time on, until the evening’s end, participation escalates throughout the new show at Capone’s. Guests that welcome participation, seem to have the best experience of all.

In previous shows, mostly men from the audience were selected to ‘help out’ on stage. Now men, women and even children (seasonal) participate. While the cast has always handled nearly every situation with complete professionalism, their talent in this area is utilized now more than ever. Men and women are somewhat predictable, but kids? They do and say the darnedest things… and you can bet the wise guys and gals are prepared for it!

New Show at Capone’s Revives Old Song Favorite

Even some of the musical numbers have been revived from past shows. For example, check out the photo below from the early 1990’s. It features dancers performing the old “Cell Block Tango.” It has been revived from the very first show ever performed at this Orlando dinner show. Now this guest favorite is featured all over again in the new show at Capone’s. Wait until you see the new version!

New Show at Capone’s features old hit

“Cell Block Tango” is revived from this early 1990’s hit.

Repeat offenders (returning guests) know several of the songs that are performed nightly. Often songs get stuck in your noodle after attending the new show at Capone’s. Check out this recent guest comment:

“Happy Mother’s Day!! My seven-year-old has been entertaining me all day with endless choruses of ‘fuh-get about it!!’ ‘get atta here!!’ and of course her favorite, ‘I like-a yo’ spicy meatballs!!!’ Thank you so much [C. Y.] for inviting us [to Capone’s Dinner & Show]! We had the time of our lives.”
– L. Briggs, May 14, 2017

Return to ‘the family’ and Visit Capone’s Again

If you’ve already experienced Capone’s Dinner & Show any time over the past 25 years, it’s worth another visit. Many things come and go, and trends have a way of making their way around again. Wear your velour tracksuit if you must, but return home to ‘the family’ and see the new show at Capone’s. We promise, it will be very difficult to… “fuhget about it!”

See the show early, then make plans out or celebrate at home or in your hotel’s bar.

Best Bet

In closing, if you like large crowds and an all-day affair, get tickets to an Orlando theme park. To celebrate in a smaller venue, which also requires a little less time and money (yet still extremely enjoyable), attend an Orlando dinner show New Year’s Eve party. Capone’s is a sure bet.
