We took Grandmother C. to the Medieval Times castle in Dallas for dinner and a show. Where else can you watch a great tournament and eat an entire meal with just your hands?
We had reservations and got there before the doors opened. However, there was already a line to get in. Our 5 year old was not the most charming about having to be patient in the hot Texas sun!
But the castle is the perfect place to go for summer entertainment and dinner while enjoying the cool air conditioning! We all donned our fabulous blue crowns and got ready to for a wonderful dinner and tournament.
No utensils are needed at Medieval Times - actually they aren't even available for you if you want them! Your fingers are all that you need. The garlic bread is perfect for dipping into the hot Tomato Bisque soup. But my soup bowl must have had a hole in it because it was completely empty. I wish they offered seconds!
The bisque was followed by chicken, rib, baked potato and dessert pastry. The food is always delicious here. And of course, napkins and wet towels are available to clean up with afterwards.
We watched the falconry performance and the beautiful Spanish horses as they danced around the arena. Of course the jousts and sword fights were amazing too. I just love the chivalry and pagentry of the performances.
Here is a quick video of one of the Blue Knight's battles:
