The food at Jekyll and Hyde

is fucking terrible.

yeah, Jack, I gotta question your thinking on this. Jekyll and Hyde is modest fun at best and TERRIBLE food. Let's not overlook the bucket of beers happy hour deal at Planet Hollywood.

I (and a fairly large party) had a great time at Jekyll & Hyde. I went into Planet Hollywood with a similarly positive attitude and really regretted having gone at all. The ideas of having a share in a bucket of beers at Planet Hollywood at this point doesn't really appeal to me, at least not at their Times Square location. I also find difficult the idea that a bucket of beers at PH is cheaper or better than a similar bucket at a real bar.

I understand that the Jekyll and Hyde club may not appeal to all constitutions equally, but we were basically laughing and having a wonderful time all night. One mark against it was a really horrible smell around the first floor bar, but we solved that by going to the second floor.

I also concede that not every diner will be pleased to learn that their entire meal is being heavily surveilled through both visual and auditory channels, but I thought it was pretty funny.

As to the quality of the food, you should probably have eaten at a real restaurant before going - that's just playing street-safe.

In my experience, which was the same experience as Jack, Jekyll and Hyde is a landmark restaurant. I probably wouldn't pay $24 for chicken fingers with cheese fries and jalapeno poppers or whatever they serve, but I would definitely go to Jekyll and Hyde and have a terrific time with my friends.

Possibilities:
1) Cast changes and creative overhauling has improved the Jekyll and Hyde shows
2) I am a more sophisticated theater-goer than you guys
3) you guys were drunker than I was
4) it was just luck of the riffs

SC -

Well, Dubbin was with us, so I'm pretty sure we can rule out theory two.

"More sophisticated theater-goer" indeed. "Spelling 'theater' with an '-er'" indeed.
