I had such a fun night with my beautiful daughter Sara! We started our evening with a perfect dinner at David’s Bistro in Antioch (David’s Bistro Website). Entering from Main Street (Route 83) a pleasant hostess greeted us at the door and she quickly sat us at a table for two.
Surf and Turf was the evening special, and consisted of an 8 oz Filet with Mushroom and Cherry Demi-glaze paired with two Lobster Ravioli. The filet melted in your mouth and the Demi-glaze complimented the filet perfectly. The homemade ravioli had a luscious lobster filling and covered with the perfect amount of a creamy sauce. Oh, and I cannot forget to rave about the Cream of Asparagus Soup! Tender bits of asparagus floating in a creamy broth, it was so flavorful. I will be returning often to try many of their other entrees.
The prices are excellent and range from $10.99 for a pizza to $26.99 for a Filet Oscar or Duck Breast. In addition to the perfect meal, the ambiance is perfect for a special occasion, or just a night out. Their children’s menu has many meal choices for the little ones at a price of $5.99 for the meal.

After this wonderful dinner we walked next door to the PM&L Theatre (PM&L Facebook Page) for the 8:00 pm show of “Almost Maine”. The PM&L Theater is a small local theater and features dramas and musicals that are quite popular. The current play “Almost Maine” ends this weekend, but their next play, “A Christmas Story” starts on December 1, 2017 and runs through December 17, 2017, tickets are available online through their website PM&L Theatre Website.
The venue is a small gem in downtown Antioch. There is an area that features soda, water, beer, and wine. They also sell chocolates that were made at a local sweet shop and bags of chips. A nice added perk is that you are now allowed to take you drinks into the theater. Sitting in the front row of the balcony, our view was ideal. I won’t go into a full review of the play, but what I will say is that the actors are all local and were simply amazing. The play was full of laughs and a few tears. I can’t wait to go back to see, A Christmas Story, in December (a review for the future!)
After the play we decided to go and visit my wonderful niece at Savanna House in Wadsworth (Savanna House – Wadsworth, IL). We did not arrive until around 10:00 pm and dinner service was over. There were a few people in the bar/lounge area, some were playing darts, others were talking, and a few were trying their luck on the slot machines. We stayed for a few drinks and Mary Bennett the owner came out and said,”hello” to us. I really love the laid back feel of the bar/lounge. It was nice to catch up with my niece too, although she was busy and did not leave her customers waiting, she was very attentive to all their orders. We were even treated to some fresh made popcorn and pretzels while we were drinking. I will need to go back and try dinner there soon (another review to write soon!).
All in all we had a WONDERFUL evening of food, entertainment, and drinking with my beautiful daughter!
