Some good friends recommended that we visit Saint Marys for the annual Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival, and we're glad they did!
We started our trip by visiting the Chinese Restaurant that was closed last time we went through Silver Lake. We were pleased with the food and service -- they were quick, friendly, and very good. A few pro tips for eating here: Come early, bring cash, and if you want takeout, call it in at 3:30.
After dinner, it was time to head west for the play, which, as Myrick says, "is where a lot of people go on a stage and tell a story." Since today was Talk Like a Pirate Day, I read aloud from Treasure Island on the road from Silver Lake to St. Marys.
The festival was wonderful! There were many booths in the shady grove where it took place: Food, drinks, handmade crafts, and more. It had a very family-friendly feel, and the play (As You Like It) was great.
We left a bit early because we were tired, but not before buying the boys some bows and arrows (in keeping with the hunting theme of the play).
We would definitely like to return often in the future... this was a fantastic event.
