Like high fashion and public transportation, our fair city does dinner and a show extremely well; unfortunately, the last time you indulged involved sneaking a street-vendor hot dog into a movie theater. With today's deal from Exotic Mediterranean, reinvent your nights out: Pay $26 (regularly $69) for an authentic Turkish dinner, belly-dancing show, and beginners' belly dance class at the Drom on August 10, 18, or 24 at 6:30 p.m. or 8:30 p.m.
While enjoying an elegant meal of fresh hummus, salad, rice, and chicken or beef, the awe-inspiring Layla Isis will put on a spectacle right before your eyes. A member of the Dalia Carella Dance Collective, Layla and other dancers will wow you with dynamic choreography and expressive routines during this 2.5-hour show. Best yet, you'll learn all these moves after they're done, which surely beats covertly smuggling food into a theater.
