My dear, sweet wife and I love to go to the theater. We can't think of a better date night by eating at a favorite restaurant, followed by seeing a show. Drama...musical...it doesn't matter as long as it is entertaining and fun.
Last night we ate at 49 Grill, located at the renovated hotel just off the 17 and Camelback Road. It was purchased and redone by Grand Canyon University, part of the make over the University is doing in the neighborhood. If you've not traveled that vicinity for a while, do it soon. The construction that is taking place at GCU is nothing short of amazing. The neighbors and Phoenix political leaders all give kudos to CEO Brian Mueller and the University about all they've done to improve the quality of life in had been a rundown and neglected area.
49 Grill had a nice menu of basically what I would call "pub food." We each tried the tacos - the shrimp tacos were delicious; chicken was dry; the pork was spicy and quite tasty. The restaurant was dominated by students and there was quite a fun atmosphere going on. We enjoyed it very much.
"The Mouse Trap" is an Agatha Christy who-done-it which featured an outstanding cast. The set and costuming was well done and the student actors seemed to have great fun with their parts. Easily one of the best presentations we've seen at GCU.
We do have worship this weekend - Saturday ant 5 pm and Sunday at 8 and 10:45 am. I'll be preaching on the theme, "The Welcoming Church." Come and join us this weekend!
