Now, THAT ……

…… was a blast.

I just got home from attending “Drunk Shakespeare”. And it was SO much fun.
I received an email about it yesterday. And a discount code. So I decided to go. I may have to go again.
And again.

They’ve been doing it for 3 weeks and the regular priced ticket is only $30. I only paid $14. Pretty good deal, right?

It’s a company of about 2 girls and 3 guys and they perform this in a bar down on 44th. A pretty decent bar. Upstairs.

They take turns choosing one of them to be the one who has to do shots, and bigger servings, at the whim of the audience.
It was hilarious.
Tonight they performed “Macbeth”.
And all things considered, they did a great job.
And they were hilarious.

Here are some pics from the evening:

This is me, in the mirror.




This is the guy who had to drink. Β Obviously.





I thoroughly enjoyed myself and highly recommend it.

Afterwards, the guy who sat next to me asked me if I wanted to go downstairs and have a drink.
I respectfully declined. He was very nice and was in NY for business and is returning to England on Thursday.
But I had 3 (small) margaritas over the two hour performance, so I decided that I didn’t need anything else to drink.
That, and I have barre class early in the morning.

The weather did a bizarre turn today.
Yesterday it was beautiful and around 70.
At this moment it’s 35 and snowing.
Yes, snowing.
And hour ago it was 45 and raining.
Go figure.

Yesterday it looked and felt like spring.


Maybe tomorrow I’ll be taking pictures of snow angels.

Actually, I’ll be too busy to take many pictures.
I have barre class, then have to rush home and get ready for our monthly book club meeting, then leave that early to go with a group to see a play, “The Realistic Joneses”. I don’t know much about it, except that Toni Collette is in it and it got a great review in The Times.
(I try not to read too much about any show I’m going to see …… it seems to work better that way. Except for “Spiderman”. I should’ve TOTALLY read the reviews on that.)

Then tomorrow evening I’m going to see Idina Menzel’s new show, “If Then”.
Otherwise known as Adele Dazeem to John Travolta.

Writing all of that just made me realize that I need to go to bed.
Like now.

See ya later.

      Kelley, let me know when you have a free evening … if you ever have one again!!!
      And yeah, you have nothing to be jealous of when it comes to the barre class. Unless you’re jealous of torture. πŸ™‚

      Hi Terri! I’m so glad that you now know you can comment. πŸ™‚
      If Drunk Shakespeare ever comes to Houston you definitely need to go! And I loved “If, Then”. Idina was great, as usual. I really enjoyed the story, as well as the music.
      Another show I highly recommend. πŸ™‚

      Hi Diane! I think you got much more snow than we did. It was mostly gone by mid morning. And I’m glad you liked the Drunk Shakespeare part …. I highly recommend it! πŸ™‚

      Hi Vick!! Well, the book we talked about today is “The Alienist”. I haven’t finished it, so I’m not sure if I can recommend it or not. All of the books we read have something to do with NYC. One that I really enjoyed was “Empty Mansions” … a true story. I think you’d like that one.
      Love you!!
