Our family has started a tradition. When the Maysville Players are presenting a performance at the Washington Opera House in downtown Maysville we always make a night of it. Our first stop is O'Rourke's Pub (downtown Maysville) for dinner and drinks. It's usual that we order too much and have some left over, but it's soooo good. Some of our favorites include Pub Grub (crackers, cheese, pepperoni, and banana peppers), Norbie's Nachos, and thin crust pizza with lots of good toppings. The prices are reasonable, the food is great and the staff friendly. This is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends- socializing and enjoying an evening out.
Some important things to remember:
1. Don't go to dinner too hungry. Remember to snack before dinner if hungry to avoid overeating. An increased level of hunger makes moderation hard.
2. Limit alcohol. Ask server to bring water as well.
3. Listen to fullness. You can always ask for and take a to-go box. Their pizza is almost as good the next day!
Once our bellies are full, we then walk (weather permitting) to the Opera House which is just a few blocks away. We enjoy the show and are floored by and appreciate the local talent. We are so fortunate to live in a small town with such a thriving theater. If you have never been to a performance we highly encourage it. Check out Maysvilleplayers.net for more information.
Their current performance is Steel Magnolias. Hope to see you at the next performance...just don't take our table at the Pub! ;)
