The Beehive Asks: What should the ‘Wicked’ cast do in Fresno on its day off?

With “Wicked” doing a 16-show run over nearly two weeks in Fresno, there are dozens of actors and crew members who’ll be looking for something to do with their down time and days off Monday and Tuesday. According to Donald’s interviews, they’re staying in four different hotels (I’m guessing in downtown). So I thought the Beehive community could offer some suggestions. I’ll get us started.

The Grizzlies are at home, so they can head over to Chukchansi Park for a hot dog and some dippin’ dots in a SF Giants cap. (I’m thinkin’ Thirsty Thursdays are out.)

If they’re hungry, they can try all of these restaurants tracked down by Mike. They can even get waffles after the show. (I’m bettin’ that defying all that gravity makes one hungry!)

They could follow in Heather’s footsteps and take Fresno’s mural tour. Or hit one of downtown’s music hot spots.

What would you suggest? Anywhere outside downtown you think they should check out?

Tower District. 14 restaurant/bars.

Is there any local theatre going on Tuesday?

If the weather picks up I’m guessing most of them go up to Yosemite, tho – THE can’t-miss park in the world.
