The Amish Tradition Continues

Raymond The Amish Comic
Cinema & Drafthouse - West Hazleton, PA
Raymond's show in West Hazleton has become a pre-Thanksgiving tradition for us.  We've gone to see him on the night before Thanksgiving in 20192021, and 2022 (there was no show in 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown).

For anyone who's interested in attending next year's show, you should probably know that although the theater's advertisements all say that the doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at 8:00, the doors really open well in advance of 7:30.  We got there at around 7:15 and the place was already about a quarter full and reservation cards had been placed on quite a few of the tables.  If you want to get a decent seat and have time to order food that will get to your table before the start of the show, I'd recommend that you plan to get to the theater at 7:00.

Speaking of food, we had the Preview Sampler, which includes chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, Bavarian soft pretzels, pierogies, and freshly made potato chips which are served with an assortment of dipping sauces.  The chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks and soft pretzels were especially delicious.

I think I'm going to try the Parmesan Chicken Tender Sub next time.

Raymond was hysterically funny as always.  I think this is my favorite out of the four shows that we got to see him.  If he's performing anywhere in your area, I highly recommend that you check out his show.
