Lily’s Bistro has planned a Renaissance FEAST, topped off with fire-eating, sword-swallowing and more

Hear ye, hear ye! Lily’s Bistro in the Oregon District has planned a feast only worthy of Daytonian royalty — although it won’t cost your last gold coin.

Lily’s Bistro is hosting “thee” Renaissance Feast, a Renaissance dining experience complete with performers from thee Ohio Renaissance Festival, the Pickled Brothers Circus. The entertainment will follow the three-course feast with sword-swallowing, bed of nails, jokes and “weather permitting” fire-eating.

-Braised Wild Boar Ribs, potato cakes, roasted root vegetables, honey mead demi-glace
