Humans have always enjoyed eating food while listening to soothing sounds, be it the screech of scimitars on ancient Near Eastern chalkboards or the melody of plump grapes exploding under the weight of a pyramid. Tune up your digestion with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to dinner and a show (a $30 value for adults, $20 for children 12 and younger) at the Diamond W Chuckwagon, located in the Old Cowtown Museum’s Empire House Theater.
Inside Wichita’s 1870s-themed cattle-town museum, guests can mosey over to the Diamond W Chuckwagon and enjoy three hours of food, music, and family-friendly fun served up by the award-winning cowboy Western quartet known as the Diamond W Wranglers (formerly the Prairie Rose Wranglers). Fans of food, music, music about food, and musical foods will relish the tastes of an all-you-can-eat brisket dinner that includes smoked beef brisket and sausage, roasted rosemary potatoes, cowboy beans, honey cornbread, and chocolate-chunk brownies with vanilla ice cream for dessert. The meal—which may be served by the Diamond W Wranglers members themselves, three of whom own the restaurant together—then merges into an after-dinner show of good-old-fangled cowboy Western tunes interspersed with jokes, tall tales, and coyote brandings. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the meal is served at 6:30 p.m. Check the upcoming schedule before making a reservation.
As a traveling act, the Diamond W Wranglers have played their music across the globe. Not only do they claim to have introduced cowboy music to the Chinese (which the group can sing in the Middle Kingdom's native tongue), they tout themselves as the first musicians from the Western hemisphere to play a concert on the Great Wall of China—wowing Chinese music-lovers and invading Mongol hordes alike with the booming reverberations of their professional guitar twangs and harmonious melodies. Call in advance to make reservations to Diamond W Chuckwagon, because seats are subject to availability.
