The Lindsay Post - - ENTERTAINMENT -

South Pond Farms, a new spe­cial events venue lo­cated in Bethany, is swing­ing open its barn doors to host an even­ing of din­ner and pro­fes­sional standup com­edy.

"Meat and Mirth For Dad" takes place Sun­day, June 16 (Fa­ther's Day) at 7 p.m. and will fea­ture two of co­me­di­ans who played to a near-sell out au­di­ence in Peter­bor­ough's Show­place The­atre in April.

Steve Levine and De­nis Grignon will each per­form 45- minute sets with a short in­ter­mis­sion.

Or­ga­niz­ers said the show is not ex­clu­sive to fa­thers - or men - but the co­me­di­ans did ad­mit the theme al­lows them to ex­plore the topic more heav­ily.

"But both my wife and sons are plan­ning on be­ing there, so I have to be wary of how much I can say," joked Grignon.

South Pond Farms in­cludes a "pris­tine 100- acre prop­erty and a re­stored 120-year-old barn."

"This is ex­actly the type of show we were look­ing for; the kind that re­ally suits our venue and our au­di­ence," said owner Danielle French. "We've been want­ing to ex­pand what we of­fer."

The farm re­cently un­der­went a sub­stan­tial ren­o­va­tion to cur­rent build­ing codes, adding wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble wash­rooms and an out­door oven stove.

Or­ga­niz­ers said "its com­bi­na­tion of down home charm and high end ameni­ties are what at­tracted pro­duc­ers of the show." Tick­ets for the show are $40. The din­ner will fea­ture steak, baked pota­toes, as­para­gus, flat breads and straw­berry short­bread.

Reser­va­tions are re­quired and can be made by go­ing to www.south­pond­ or con­nect@south­pond­

Price is $40 per per­son.
