For a taste of the old world (and by old I mean 15th century), head over to Medieval Madness at Renaissance Hall for a laugh, some meade, good food, and maybe a sword fight. I just experienced this place this past week and had an awesome time. The menu, wine, and beer lists are authentic, from the preparations from the Medieval period and the theatrical performance is fun for all.
Seating is at communal tables, tipping of the serving lady's (or wenches depending on your mood or meade intake) is encouraged, and audience participation during the show makes the experience that much more fun. Shows are Thursday through Sunday and reservations are required.
