Thanks Craig. We actually usually serve in glass, but switched to plastic just for Pride weekend. Sorry you were unimpressed. We definitely recommend that people check out one of the great restaurants in the neighborhood before or after the show.

Went to see the magic show tonight. It was flipping amazing. If you enjoy magic at all you really should make an effort to go to the show. I would go back and see this again it was as good as any big Vegas show
