I was looking forward to my girlfriends birthday celebration at Corio's restaurant. It was to be a night with drinks, entertainment, and food in one location, which sounds good, right? Unfortunately for my friends and I, Corio missed the mark. No bull-eyes for them. The burlesque show was pretty good, the performers had good routines and great bodies, but I found the MC opening monologue lacked energy and didn't immediately connect with the audience. As the night went on she did get better. I didn't have any drinks so I can't comment on that, but I did eat there and when I say I was extremely disappointed, I'm being nice. We would have been better off eating at another restaurant and only paying $40 for the show. There's a saying that to many cooks spoil the broth, I think when restaurants don't have a single focus, something gets lost in the mix. In Corio's case it's the food. The food and show cost over $100 a person when you add the tax. It wasn't money well spent as far as I'm concerned. If you want to attend a entertaining burlesque show, it will be worth your while, but make sure you eat and drink before you get there, otherwise you will be filled with regret .
The entertainers put on a good show, too bad the cook can't follow suite. When I remarked to the Manager that my guestes did not enjoy the food, she was not accomadating. Be warned: Corio has a good show - but eat a burger before you go!
Pros: Fun Show
