And a good evening to you from across the Pond after a GREAT Sunday in the Mother Country. Okay, so I know that I didn't leave you all that long ago, but since we last chatted, Muffin Puffin and I have crossed off another "must see" in Londres - JERSEY BOYS!!!!
Yesterday we booked seats for today's show, and we got GREAT seats for only 32 quid.
Sometimes Sundays can be disappointing in terms of performers. However, there wasn't a SINGLE understudy in today's performance. In addition, the theater was TOTALLY refurbished, and it looked simply spectacular.
The show itself was SO entertaining, complete with some GREAT lines and TONS of fantastic music. Tacy family, I won't give anything away, but suffice it to say that it was a GREAT show - you'll LOVE it (I hope - knock on wood). And mum - I couldn't help but think of you and Steve when "Sherry" came on - CLASSIC. To the rest of our readership - if you aren't familiar with Frankie Valli and the 4 seasons, suffice it to say that they had about 14 BILLION hits - I had NO IDEA how many songs they had!
After the show, we rolled across the street to The Three Greyhounds (Steve and Sara - we had a pint there with you guys whilst waiting for Nadine's - KJ's fave Lebanese joint) for a couple of pints (a fresh cask of Timmy Taylor, baby! MAN - I am gonna miss that stuff once the magic carpet ride ends).
Tonight was a FABU meal at casa de Taylor. Muffin whipped up some goat's cheese and carmelized onion ravioli, and we tacked on some parmesean cheese (KJ - I blame you for my new obsession) and a tasty salad. Throw in an Abbot Ale to finish off the weekend, and you've got 48 hours of immortality for Team Taylor.
This really was the PERFECT weekend, and now, at 8 PM, it's time to start crossing off to-do's. First off - Slovenia hotels. Here's hoping the "Team Taylor To-Do List" is 100% scratched out when we next chat.
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
