Before dinner theater, humans hungry for food as well as entertainment resorted to eating cereal with a fork. Enjoy modern amusement with today’s Groupon to Skye in Peoria. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get two tickets to any upcoming show (up to a $30 value).
- For $15, you get $30 worth of fine dining at the Platinum Room or Raymond’s Steakhouse.<p>
Skye’s comedians, crooners, and crowd pleasers entertain eaters while chef Ephraim Gallor peppers palates with dueling menus of Raymond’s prime meats or the Platinum Room’s showtime nosh. The venue’s eclectic calendar, packed full of upcoming acts, includes tribute bands for such popular performers as Elton John, Frank Sinatra, and Abba. Alternatively, diners can choose to witness the nerve-wracking drama of Idol in the Skye, which pits pipers against one another for a cash prize, studio recording time, and a litter of cryogenically frozen raptor pups. As dictated by the United States Constitution, best-available tickets will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Skye’s Platinum Room is one of the valley’s most intimate venues to see a show, making it easy for diners to concentrate on performances without losing sight of the menu of flavor explosions going off right in front of them. A pair of tender steak medallions sizzles beneath a caramelized glaze of marinade ($16), and the french-dip sliders’ marinated, thinly sliced proteins partner with horseradish cream and au jus on ciabatta bread ($12).
For a truly fine dine, patrons can opt to take a seat at Raymond’s Steakhouse, where a menu of hand-carved steaks and seafood graces modern table settings while musicians plunk out dining-friendly tunes on a glistening piano. A full pound of Alaskan king crab legs sops up drawn butter spiked with lemon ($48), and a gorgonzola crust and drizzled merlot reduction enrobe New York–style prime-cut beef ($41). Signature sips in the form of martinis or cocktails swirled up at a full bar keep gullets slick and provide emergency lubrication when the piano player’s pistons overheat.
