You may have heard of a pop-up restaurant, but you've definitely never been to a pop-up dinner theater. Neighborhood Café in Lee's Summit is hosting the Summit Theatre Group tonight and tomorrow for a performance of the play Bus Stop. Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m., and the theater portion commences at 8:15 p.m. The cost is $30 for a ticket to the show, an entrée (meatloaf and pot roast are among the six classic choices), and a piece of pie. Tickets can be purchased online.
Ah, candy and wine, two food groups that were somehow left off the food pyramid. Figure out how to put the two essentials together at Jowler Creek Vineyard & Winery (16905 Jowler Creek Rd., in Platte City) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Easter candy and wine pairing puts some of the Jowler Creek wines with jelly beans, Peeps and chocolate eggs. The tasting experience costs $5 per person.
