Performance Dining

burlesquepic.jpgToday's Wall Street journal has a profile of Performance Dining, a sort of supercharged, culinary-minded form of dinner theater that is sweeping its way across Europe. You see, in these lean economic times, diners want not only more bang for their buck, but also an enhanced "sensory experience", so typically trendy gourmet meals are now being served along side sword swallowers, burlesque dancers, Amy Winehouse impersonators, and the like. Who knows if this will ever catch on in the states, but then again, this sort of thing seems to be popular in some pockets of the country. [WSJ]
