Dinner Theater for Kids: Eats and Entertainment in One

Read next

Dinner. Theater. Two words that might immediately make you think of old people in Florida watching the worst possible version of Death of a Saleman while eating the early bird rubber chicken special. Fret not, we’re talking about something much more fun… Something that keeps kiddos in their seats and has them laughing, gasping or clapping the whole time – and eating all the while. Consider bringing your cutie to one of these dinner theater options for your whole evening (or morning, or afternoon) meal + entertainment in one sitting/setting. Some are more traditional than others (with sit-down sustenance and live performers on stage), and others are far more relaxed. Either way, finding entertainment that comes without a remote and letting someone else prep the food is definitely the best thing since sliced bread!

Rock and Munch: Books and Cookies Concerts

If you’ve got a tiny tyke who’s into something shorter and sweeter (and earlier in the day), check out the Saturday morning music shows at Books and Cookies. Order from their healthy, wholesome menu and mosey on over to a cushion on the floor. Your kids can munch on a sun-butter and fresh jam sandwich while a musician takes the lead and dazzles them with songs. With events like <em>Jam with Mista Cookie Jar</em> and <em>Wild Music Fun with Ukulady</em>, your kiddo is bound to have a blast. After your tiny one’s been fed and entertained, and you both may want to stroll to the beach for a bit of sand castle building before heading home for a mid-afternoon snooze. <strong>When &amp; Where:</strong> Saturdays at 10:00 am, Santa Monica <strong>Online:</strong> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.booksandcookiesla.com/#!activities-and-events/c1yws">booksandcookiesla.com/#!activities-and-events/c1yws</a&gt; fuck

Where do you go to get your eats & entertainment all at one time?
