‘Don’t Dress for Dinner’ at Mountain Playhouse; Round Corner Cantina Offers Mexican Food and Margaritas (Tues., 7/9/19)

1) Should you ever want to write a French sex farce, the secret is to create a plot with overlapping adulterous affairs, then add lots more complications. In Marc Camoletti’s play Don’t Dress for Dinner, the husband invites his mistress in for the weekend because his wife will be away, but wife decides to stay because husband’s old friend will be visiting, with whom she is having an affair, so husband tries to explain the mistress’s presence by asking old friend to lie and say that she’s his mistress, but old friend mistakenly says the cook is his mistress … got it? Mountain Playhouse presents Don’t Dress for Dinner at 7690 Somerset Pike. 7 p.m. Performances continue through July 21.  Jennerstown. (MV)

2) Even when it’s not quite summer in Pittsburgh, it always feels like warmer climes at Round Corner Cantina in Lawrenceville. The food certainly helps: chips and salsa, burritos, tacos, and other Mexican cuisine, much of it for $10 or less. The decor furthers the ambiance. Wallpaper of palm fronds border the booths in the dining room. Then there’s the recently opened Chalet, a patio bar which is enclosed and heated during the winter. It’s also always important to know where to get a margarita that’s not too watery, not too alcoholy, and not too costly. Round Corner has you covered, serving up one that’s just right. Whenever the kitchen closes, the bar stays open for at least an hour more and even longer on weekends. There are daily specials, a happy hour, and a brunch menu. And don’t forget churros for dessert. Round Corner is also available to book for private parties. 3720 Butler St., Lawrenceville. (CM)
