First Show of the Year

Posted on

I kicked off my theatre going 2013 with the new musical ‘Loserville’ which unfortunately ended today as well. It was a show that my niece wanted to see before it closed. And after experiencing it, I’d wished I’d gone to see it before. It was a very lively, feel good show with superb choreography and imaginative set and props. Both myself and Jordan enjoyed it very much and came out buzzing. While I was in the West End I finally booked myself a ticket to see the stage show ‘Les Miserables’ for March but I’m sure I’ll find something else to go and see in the mean time.

Of course, no day out would be complete without a good meal. We randomly ended up in a Thai Style vegetarian buffet restaurant in Soho. It was different and enjoyable and I didn’t have to worry about what I was eating because everything was meat free and free of all animal products.

Broomsticks and Cocktails

Now I’ve recovered from the weekend I might as well tell you a bit about it. Well I can start off by saying that it was a good one. Saturday began with food and wine in the Spice of Life, Soho with my friends Celia, Mandy and her lovely mum Ann. We then moved onto somewhere we hadn’t been before, a bar/restaurant called Ruby Blue in Leicester square. It was happy hour so we got the cocktails in and sat on the balcony which overlooked Leicester square. They played an array of 80’s/90’s songs on the top floor and we amused ourselves by chatting to some random people which is a regular occurence for us. We moved onto the Phoenix artist club, a members bar where we enjoyed boogying along to Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; songs that you don’t often hear on a standard night out. I love it in there and I love the people too. We must have been the last people to leave and after Ann had had a serious discussion with the cab driver putting the world to rights we finally rolled in at 4am… a sign of a good night out.

Sunday’s trip to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studio tour was long-awaited. It was my chance to behave like a big kid and that I did. Myself and Mandy admired the sets and props, sampled butter beer and rode on a broomstick across London (virtually). It took us a good few hours to work ourselves around the different rooms. I could have spent a fortune in the gift shop but I limited my purchased items to a guide-book and Professor Snape’s wand 🙂

Later that evening we were fortunate enough to catch the Jersey Boys performance on stage in Covent Garden for the Olivier awards.
