” The highlight of the show was definitely Dan’s boy, James. It is that cute father-son act I tell you. He did great in the actual show, especially at the end but I don’t want to ruin the surprise. I still don’t get it and I probably never will. Yay for little James!” Amy H. 9/15/2015 Yelp Review for Bay Area’s Most Popular Dinner Show
