On July 3, 2012, Ivan, Lil Dave and I went into Central London at 12:30 pm. Ivan picked up theatre tickets at the box office while I had an interview on the phone for a magazine. Our wedding is going to be featured in a UK women’s magazine called Chat. Oh yes…we are going to be famous!!
We met up with Ivan’s mum at Princi for lunch. Ivan and I had pasta salad, aubergine and roasted pumpkin. We also shared a brownie for dessert. Lil Dave got a banana pasta salad.
We all went to see the musical Jersey Boys. It’s the story about Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. The story was great featuring many of their hits like Sherry, Walk Like a Man, Dawn, Rag Doll and our favorite Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You. The cast had amazing voices. I don’t know how Ryan Malloy hits those high notes so well.
Ivan and I said bye to Denise. She was off on a ghost tour while we went to dinner. We only had to walk two doors down to Tapasia from the theatre.
This Japanese restaurant is offering the 50% deal still before 6 pm and now they’re doing 2 for 1 cocktails from 5-7 pm. Ivan got a tasty mango chili cocktail while I got the Pink Pokemon which has lychee and raspberries.
We enjoyed the tofu salad, seafood okonomiyaki and sardines. It was all really yummy and very cheap with the discount!
We got the train to Sloane Square. I thought of the Morrissey song “Hair Dresser on Fire” with the lyrics Hair Dress on Fire, All Around Sloane Square.
We had tickets to see a play called ‘Birthday’ at the Royal Court Theatre. Ivan and I got an espresso as we were feeling like we needed a ‘pick me up’ and headed inside the theatre. Birthday is about a man who is having a baby.
The play has some funny moments when the man starts moaning like a woman and the midwife has to give him a suppository. But, there’s a lot of waiting since the NHS (National Health Service) wants the birth to happen when the time is right and gives emergencies top priority. The play was alright. Not the best…not the worse we have seen either.
