Club Cafe is a nice place to drink something, listen to some nice music, having a good lunch or dinner and why not dance a little bit. The service is very friendly and the food is good.

To think of The Golden Girls performance that we saw as a drag show would be doing these two actors a tremendous disservice. This is a tribute show that is full of love. There is some interaction with the audience--The fourth wall is broken several...More
