Cafe Nordo Presents: Somethin' Burning

Doors open at 7:30pm, show begins at 8pm

This Performance is Now Sold Out!

Who killed Chef Nordo Lefesczki? This fall, Café Nordo presents Somethin' Burning, an immersive dining experience featuring Craft Cocktails, Nouvelle Roadhouse Cuisine, and a deeply sincere Special Agent bent on finding the truth in a small town penetrated by insidious darkness.
Seattle's favorite perennial pop-up cocktail theatre returns October 12 to sweep diners into a dark fantasy of American dreams. Chef Nordo's menu of seasonal and sustainable cuisine is at its most whimsical: a savory breakfast-inspired journey paired with a flight of honest cocktails. Things are not what they seem in a town where doughnuts and coffee are made with mashed potatoes and gravy and locals drink their cherry pie.

With Somethin' Burning, a murder mystery in four courses, Café Nordo transforms the old dinner theater trope into a Lynchian fever dream. Nordo regulars Opal Peachey, Maximillian Davis, Kiera McDonald, and Sachie Mikawa share Nordo's boards with newcomers M.J. Sieber and Noah Benezra. The evening is scored by composer Annastasia Workman nothing too loud, just a melody, a rhythm, and a sweet vocal about how things could be, performed by the Café Nordo Houseband featuring Workman on keys, Devin Bannon on vocals, Matt Manges on drums, and Evan Mosher doing double duty as horn player and Special Agent Elliot Penn. Erin Brindley and Terry Podgorski continue their collaboration as director/food designer and writer/scenic designer with Stranger Genius Award Winner Jennifer Zeyl as guest installation artist.

    Totally fun experience. Very unique food. This was more quirky than typical dinner theatre and I loved it. Will definitely be in for the next event!

    I loved it! I can't wait for spring. My favorite thing i have eaten this season was The Bourse! The food was in costume which looked amazing. I enjoyed the production and the actors/ actresses. Thank you, Adrienne.

    Traffic on I-5S is backed up past Northgate :-(

    Parking info from the theatre website:

    There is a pay parking lot on Jackson and 8th Ave, under the freeway, just one block away from the theatre. Street parking is scarce, but can be found. Please check event schedules in the area and prepare for delays if necessary.

    This should be a great event; really looking forward to it. Dress in your "Mad Men" attire if you have it

    I will meet everyone near whatever check-in area the event has set up at 7:30pm. I'll probably be there about 7:15 to greet any early arrivals. I know most of you enough that I believe we'll recognize each other, but I'll post what I'll be wearing the day prior.

    Two of us will be carpooling. Can take two more if anyone else is interested, meet in Wallingford. My car seems to glide easily into parking spots!

    Is there anyone else who would like to carpool from N. Seattle? I live in Wallingford and don't mind driving .... and I'm lucky finding parking spots!

      Wow, intriguing. If nothing else, at least it'll be a unique and different eating experience!

    I've only heard from Rhonda regarding last names and seating so if we don't get a full list to send to Nordo in advance, we can just go with what Maurice and Joe said regarding checking in on arrival.

    September 22, 2012

  • Adrienne

    Hi all, Cafe Nordo finally responded to my email. They said if we send them the date and names, they will seat us together at tables of 8. I'm happy to reply to them with the info if you want to send me your full names via email, once you've purchased your ticket.

    September 15, 2012

  • Adrienne

    Thanks Maurice!

    September 10, 2012

  • Adrienne

    Thanks Joe!

    September 10, 2012

  • Maurice

    They will ask you when you first check-in if there are other folks in your party, and you will be grouped together then. The groups rotate into the different rooms throughout the evening. Once the "tour" is over, you'll sit at a banquet table for the proper dinner... everyone arrives at about the same time so you'll all probably get to sit together then as well.

    September 10, 2012

  • Joe B

    I went in May. They broke folks up into groups of about 12. Not critical that we sit together, as some of the room you move to had several small tables, some a few large tables. All fun just the same

    September 10, 2012

  • Adrienne

    I purchased mine earlier this evening too:-) I'll definitely post on the seating as soon as Nordo replies to me. I think some of the people who are attending in November also went in May so maybe they have insight they can share.

    September 9, 2012

  • Coco

    I just purchased my ticket. Thanks for the heads up Adrienne and hopefully we all can sit together.

    September 9, 2012

  • Joe B

    Hi all: please note, every show sells out everytime, so be sure to buy your tickets early

    1 · September 9, 2012

  • Adrienne

    I've emailed Cafe Nordo to inquire about ensuring we all sit together. I'll post as soon as they reply.

    September 9, 2012

  • Adrienne­ changed the date and time to Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 7:30 PM

    September 9, 2012

  • Coco

    I like the 10th of November. Let me know if this is good for you and I will buy my tickets tonight. hugs

    September 9, 2012

  • Adrienne

    Yay, Ronnie. What dates work for you?

    September 9, 2012
