So we run across the street to Industry, which hasn't let us down yet. Their drink menu is extensive and it truly is fun to watch the bartenders work. Rhuby Rhuby Rhuby was sweet and light - good for just about anybody. The Menlo Park was delish and fun to watch him make. We had Carnegie Cucumber, Tesla's Coil, and for entertainment, order a Smokestack or a Kentucky Holiday. I don't know how they taste, but fun to watch them being made.

We get our table - the dining room is small, cluttered, and dark and the decor gives an eclectic and homemade vibe. The stand-out here are the tables which have been created by local artists and are for sale. But the walls need to be painted, the layout is uninviting, and the homemade fabric covered triangles on the wall are tired.
So what did we eat?

While the whole experience was good, it wasn't great. From the descriptions on the menu and the artsy-funk decor, I guess I was expecting some more pizazz. We didn't get it in the food. It seems like Kaleidoscope is going for homey and familiar, but missing the mark a bit. I can see how this is a good place to have lunch delivered at work, but other than that, I wouldn't make a night out of it.
