How better to celebrate April 1st (or the rest of spring) than with the tricksters at Cafe Nordo? Nordo’s chefs love to combine the playful with the gourmet, and their Alice in Wonderland theme gives plenty of opportunity to show off.

Down the Rabbit Hole brings diners into an intricate Wonderland-inspired fun house for a five-course meal, and a cabaret-style show with karaoke hits by their professional singer-actors.

On Fridays and Saturdays, if you’re feeling so inclined, you can hang out late and take your own turn on the mic. The karaoke after-party is free to the main show’s ticket holders and interlopers alike; and the bar stays open with a late-night menu.

Tickets are $100-$110 (including dinner), here.
