Complimentary Anniversary Dinner & Show

As part of our wedding package from the Living Arts Centre last May, we received a voucher for a complimentary dinner and show of our choice to celebrate our (upcoming) first anniversary. We picked the Just for Laughs Roadshow, which was Wednesday. After a delicious buffet dinner- the standout was the free range chicken breast-similar to what we served at the wedding. It had an excellent sauce-some sort of reduction, possibly with balsamic vinegar and white wine. We're going to experiment at home, see if we can recreate. The cheese platter and roasted veggies were fantastic-I enjoyed plenty of double cream brie.There was plenty more to choose from-soup, salads, main dishes including prime rib and salmon. A laden dessert buffet, etc.

After we finished stuffing ourselves-the waitress (who also served at our wedding) brought us this platter-cake and complimentary champagne. Of course since I was going to a theater, I didn't have my camera with me, so I took this with my cell phone.

Stage before the show, of course no pictures allowed during the performances.
After dinner, we headed over to Hammerson Hall for the Just For Laughs show. Four comedians, both Canadian and American. The comedian from Idaho was the best-really hilarious. The others ranged from good to just ok. I was surprised on how packed the theatre was for a Wednesday night, it seats 900 and it was almost full.

We realized during dinner, that in all the reviews we read about wedding at the LAC, no one ever mentioned their anniversary package. We found the entire experience from initial planning, the actual event to the follow through to be excellent. The staff are pleasant to work with, the atmosphere is laid back but classy at the same time. During intermission we revisited some of the spots where we took wedding pictures, and had fun reminiscing about it all. Can't believe how fast the time has gone since then. It seems like just yesterday.
