Taj Palace stays foodie-friendly with an expansive menu teeming with popular plates from Southeast Asia. Traditional Islamic eating laws are easily abided with the menu's exclusively Halal meat selection, where goat, lamb and chicken live harmoniously on plates teeming with spicy adornments. The tender Rogan Josh comes with your choice of lamb or goat meat, swimming through a heavily spiced sea of sauce ($13.95). The clay Tandoori oven spits out meat and seafood alike, and sautéed Kebabs stabbed through chicken, lamb, and various veggies take the guesswork out of selecting a side dish. The supplemental Chinese food menu offers another kind of Far East fare with a medley of fried rice, noodle, and chicken dishes. For those economical eaters who like to wash down their spicy Indian cuisine with a refreshing drink, the owners encourage the practice of BYOB.
Carrying on a tradition of high-quality, audience-focused productions that dates back to 1926, Theatre Harrisburg ushers in the holiday season with a spirited rendition of A Christmas Story. Originally released on film in 1983, A Christmas Story splits sides and melts hearts with an eccentric lineup of loveable characters. Performers bring to life classic scenes that involve the Red Rider BB gun, frozen flagpole, and infamous lamp shaped like a risqué Chia pet. Lance Miller slides behind the thick-rimmed glasses of Ralphie, and Scott Schmittel and Stephanie Trdenic tackle the roles of Ralphie's comically incompatible parents. Although the show is family friendly, Theatre Harrisburg asks that no attendees or newspaper critics be younger than the age of 5.
