Sunday Night Out

I'm usually a boring gal and never go out on a Sunday night. Tonight though Ms L and I had tickets. Not on ourselves silly!

We had a fabulous night out. Dinner, some wandering in town and of course Wicked. Ms L loves a musical more than me so you should probably ask her for a review. I enjoyed it, some parts more than others and particularly the last few songs of the first half and then the second half. Costumes were great and I always love the atmosphere and the experience of being at the theatre.

No question about enjoying dinner. We had a leisurely couple of hours at my favourite restaurant and some fabulous food. A couple of Spanish ciders seems to have cured my man cold too. Anyway, if you live in Melbourne and haven't been to Movida, you should get yourself there post haste. If you live outside Melbourne then consider yourself to have one great excuse to visit. If it's a real impossibility then visit Movida for some vicarious living.

We saw some cool craft in Hosier Lane too. Has anyone else seen this guerilla craft or know anything about it?

So, I'm thankfully cured of my man cold and ready to face the working week.

Well, perhaps resigned rather than ready at this point...

Good to hear that you are well again and that you enjoyed Wicked. I'm going to see it in November on a school trip I have then and I can't wait! Everyone has had good things to say about it, so it should be fun.

Hey Cath - glad to hear you are on the mend. That guerilla craft is brilliant!

Glad you're feeling better! I'm so jealous that you got to go see Wicked! I've been wanting to see it for a long time now and just haven't made it yet. Maybe for my birthday, I'll treat myself.
Anyway, sounds like you had a lot of fun!

Mmmm... Movida. Memorable lunches, sneaking back to the office 2 hours later (sshhh!) The gals also found Bar Lourinha, up near Parliament station, just as good. Mmmm!
