A Neapolitan blend of country, classical, and contemporary, The Texas Tenors made a name for themselves in 2009 as top contenders on America's Got Talent, earning their position as the competition’s top finishing vocal group. Turning ear-stalks with their genre-spanning renditions of My Way, Danny Boy, and Unchained Melody, the three offer operatic ear candy, runway-worthy eye candy, and mesquite-flavored nose candy. John Hagen brings the operatic noise, drawing on his tanker-like lungs and national experience to craft a classical sound which gets along with modern lil' doggies. JC Fisher, the romance-tending tenor, belts tunes from twangy country and gospel to show tunes and arias, and seasoned singer/actor Marcus Collins' silky vocal acrobatics add a contemporary edge. With an ongoing world tour, The Texas Tenors are a unique phenom in the making.

Cala's aims for a local flavor, to the extent that one of their regular patrons catches the lobsters that go into dishes such as their lobster rolls. Local flavor infuses their menus, as well, with New England clam chowder among the appetizers and haddock and scallops among the choices for entrees. Diners can build their own pizzas with as many toppings as they please, and many dishes can be made vegetarian-style or without gluten.

The intimately sized Gold Room seats audiences at private tables to giggle and grin at the quips of a huge variety of comedians during two-hour shows that feature a lineup of three standups. In October, the Friday-night shows highlight the wild improvisational style of Bob Seibel and the edgy humor of Dave Rattigan, whose wit is dryer than a martini mixed in Death Valley. Between guffaws, duos and quartets can enjoy bites from steaming plates of appetizers stageside, selecting from such perennial favorites as spinach and artichoke dip, nachos with chili, and chicken wings spiced with hot, mild, barbecue, thai, or teriyaki sauce.
