A haunting and a couple of witches.

So tomorrow is going to be a date night for Seth and I.

First we are going to eat at the elevator brewery and draught haus. Here is the brief history listed on their site.

The Elevator Brewer and Draught Haus finds its home in the historic Columbia building, built in 1897 by the Bott family to house the Bott Brother’s Billiards and a gentleman’s saloon. The beautiful hand-carved, hand-split Philippine mahogany bar was created to serve the whiskey distilled on the second floor. The saloon enjoyed a brisk business from the turn of the century until the advent of prohibition in 1920. The building, rich in history, is on the national registry of historic landmarks and has been restored to much of its original grandeur. Among the original architectural elements that remain today are the beautiful bar, intricate mosaic tile floor, much of the stained glass and of course the decorative ceiling. The luxurious back-bar won the coveted blue ribbon for craftsmanship at the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Many myths and legends surround this historic building, including the presence of ghosts and spirits. Perhaps during your visit with us, you’ll encounter the unexpected. 

I have never eaten there but I am so excited about it. The food sounds so good...

After the elevator we are headed to The Ohio Theatre to see Wicked...finally. I feel like I have been waiting forever. I am not sure what I am going to do with myself until tomorrow night. Argh. I can't wait to see how they make things happen and such though. I listened to the soundtrack twice today...lol.
Here is what the Ohio Theatre looks like...

Isn't that gorgeous? I saw Phantom there a couple of years ago and it just seemed to fit the location.

For some reason I had thought it was showing at the Palace which is the other big downtown theatre. But apparently I was wrong...strange.

But anyway...I'm so excited. Yay Wicked!!!
