Medieval Times for the Holidays!

Hi neighbors!

Guess where we were able to go for dinner when we were in Chicago?  Yep, we went to Medieval Times of Chicago!  It was GREAT!  My husband and I, along with 16 year old M were able to go the Thursday evening before ChiTag.  It was so much fun!  They request you get there early, and this gives you time to see some of the horses, look at the displays and if you wish, you can tour the dungeon.  The man who is in charge of the dungeon does a super job in his position.  My husband has toured the dungeon before, so we did not go through this time.

Before entering the dinner area, they have a knighting ceremony for those who pay extra for this.  It is fun watching children being knighted.

When you enter the seating around the arena you are assigned a color and that is the knight you will be cheering for.  This makes for alot of fun during the evening.  I have to confess my daughters and I love watching the horses.  Throughout the evening a story is acted out in front of you which includes the King, his daughter the princess and of course the knights.  I do not want to give away any of the story, but I will tell you it is interesting.  You will see a hawk training for the hunt, several displays of horsemanship and of course the knights will show off their skills.

During the show, you get a delicious meal.  Chicken, a rib, soup, a seasoned potato, garlic bread, and a pastry and of course your drink.  Now, one think that most people find unique is, you eat everything with your hands.  No silverware.  My daughter and I usually have leftovers.

The show and dinner was a great evening for us.  Yes, tickets may seem a little pricey at first, but realize all you get.  Also if you follow the Chicago Castle on Facebook they often have giveaways and occasionally you can find specials for buy one get one free.

Here is some really great news.  We get to hold a giveaway for 4 tickets to the Chicago Castle.  If you live in or near Chicago, or know someone who does, be sure to enter this giveaway.  Or maybe you will be visiting Chicago for the holidays.

I always like the romance and chivalry of the times. The mode of dress that they had back then and the overall all simplicity of that time period.
