And a good evening to you across the Pond - what a GREAT Day! For starters, the weather today was simply PERFECT. This far north, it's light by 4:30 AM (the good news is that, this time around, I've got curtains), and it doesn't get dark until 10:00 PM. Granted, it's basically pitch black at 3 PM in December, but let's cross that bridge (after a few pints, of course) once we come to it, shall we?
So today started with a bang. Why, you ask? Well, for starters, Jenny and I visited our first London casino together! We each gave a pound to charity in exchange for a one time 10 pound bet at the roulette table (yes, yes...practically Mother Theresa we are), and I actually hit 4 times in a row! I walked away with 20 GBP at the end of it, which covered one of our tickets to this afternoon's feature blog topic.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen - today, Jenny and I took a journey through time and space. A journey across the sands of the Outback and to the blood red grains of Ayers Rock. A journey that traversed thousands of miles of kangaroos, opal mines, and ping pong balls. Today, we witnessed drag as an art form. Today, we saw "Priscilla - Queen of the Desert."
This show was SO OVER THE TOP it was truly amazing. If you come to visit us and the thought of walking down the street in Key West doesn't phase you, then GO SEE THIS SHOW. Absolutely spectacular.
After that, we hit LUPO in Soho, where we used our gambling winnings to split a half off bottle of wine. Work peeps, you might recognize this as the spot where we camped out until FOUR IN THE MORNING the night of the MBNA Transition celebration. Yep, I'm happy to confirm that not a whole lot has changed.
After that, it was dinner (Halloumi cheese! That's code for cheese grilled on a charcoal spit after being doused in garlic, oil, and butter...yeah, I know what healthy is) at a Turkish joint right by our house called Efes 2 - this place was off the chain. SO GOOD. And best of all - FREE CHUPITOS at the end of the meal! We went with almond shots - very tasty.
I capped off the night by walking around the streets of Marylebone chatting with my mum, who I expect to be reading this by 7 PM EST (she had a preview, so she knew it was coming).
Okay, that's about all the news that's fit to print. Chat with you tomorrow! Rice - 48 hours and counting!
Sam and Jenny
