On July 18, 2013, Ivan, Lil Dave and I met up with The Aussies at Wetherspoons. We talked and had a pint of cider.
We walked to the bus station. Tim and Gabbie were headed to Manchester today. Their bus was delayed. Ivan, Lil Dave and I said good-bye. We were all very sad since we weren’t sure when we’d be able to see each other again.
We got the tube to Temple and tried for Top Hat concession tickets, but we didn’t have any luck.
It was time for lunch, so we walked to Union Jacks in Covent Garden. Ivan and I got the Cornish mackerel, mussels in a vodka sauce and the delicious Woodman pizza.
Lil Dave got banana fettuccine and a banana shake.
Lil Dave went to explore London with his friend Robert.
Ivan and I went to see the play Relatively Speaking. It’s about a guy named Greg who likes a girl named Ginny. She says she’s going to visit her parents. Greg thinks it’s a good idea to go there uninvited to ask her father for her hand in marriage.
Greg goes to the address and he meets two people, but they aren’t actually Ginny’s parents. The guy turns out to be Ginny’s older lover. It was a very funny play.
Headed to the Soho’s Secret Tea Room for tea time. It’s located inside the Coach & Horses pub. You can make reservations, but we didn’t have one. Ivan asked the bartender if there were any openings. He called upstairs and told us we could head up. We walked through the bar and up the stairs.
There’s a timer, so you know how long to steep your tea for. Ivan and I had some tea with scones and jam in the cute tea room.
After, Ivan went with me to Magma, Agent Provocateur and Ann Summers to look for bras. I didn’t have any luck finding a good bra though.
We went to see Derren Brown’s show Infamous next. It was a very entertaining show with lots of Derren’s amazing tricks. I’m always baffled by what he does.
Ivan and I went to Spuntino for dinner. We shared a prawn po’ boy, eggplant, fennel, feta and casareccia, egg and soldiers & a beetroot, walnut and ricotta salata. The food tasted great.
