Musical Fantasy

So as most know I don't get out much, its not that I can't its just I don't want to.  I don't like leaving the kids at night so when we do venture out alone its normally through the day.  Thanks to my lovely mum who jumps at the chance to have her grandkids, hubby and I went and saw the Jabbawockeez on Saturday afternoon.  I booked the show tickets awhile ago and was really looking forward to it.  The show was at 3pm so we decided to head down early for lunch at the delicious Food Fantasy (best buffet around) and of course a gamble or two or three in the Casino!  I find it so much more relaxing to go out during the day than at night and I am not as tired too!  So lets begin at the food.....

That was dessert AFTER I had 2 platefuls of lunch!!
Devine is all that comes to mind when I think of the food I consumed.  The selection of beautifully prepared hot and cold food was amazing!  Whenever we go to Jupiters (which is every 2 years or so) we always eat at Food Fantasy and it never disappoints. Where our table was meant we had to bypass the desserts each time, which to some may seem like a bad thing but it helped me remember to not eat so much from the rest of the buffet so I had room for all of the desserts!!  By the end of lunch I was as full as ever, I kind of waddled out, the best way to leave a buffet I say!  Up to the Casino we ventured...

I amlike a little kid in a candy store every time I visit the Casino!  I am not a gambler, well I love to have a little gamble but I hate to lose money so once its gone I leave as the fun is gone!  My favourite game is Blackjack, and happens to be a favourite of the friend I went with too (you were extremely funny at the table too!) so in search of the cheapest Blackjack table we went!  Being the middle of the day not many of the $5 tables were open- dammit- so we settled for the $15 table.  I had a ball, I think I won double my money but i played it all back on the table so walked out with none.  Thats the way i gamble!  So once we were broke it was time to find our way to the theatre and be seated for the JABBAWOCKEEZ!!!!!!!

Excited much!!!!

When i purchased the tickets I did the usual check of where the tickets were and was happy with the seating thinking it was about in the middle and quite central. Well......upon entering the theatre the lovely lady checked our tickets and told us to proceed toward sthe front, at this stage I didn't think anything of it but then the next lady to check tickets told us we were front row, FRONT ROW!!  and smack bang in the middle of the front row too!!!!  Turns out the seating plan I checked was the old one!  So once the excitement of being so close settled it was time for the show to begin.....


The show was amazing to say the least, I don't really have the right words to explain it other than FANTASTIC! I would see it over and over again.  Those guys were amazingly talented, funny and just damn good.  I went in thinking it was just dancing, looking forward to it but it was way more than dancing, it was theatrical and funny as well as phenomenal dancing!  I was really hoping I would be chosen (as they chose people from audience a few times) but not this time!  It was a fantastic show and honestly if you have the time do yourself a favour and go and see it.  I thought it ended at the end of August but have since found out it has been extend until November.  I can't rave enough about it and at the end of the 90 minutes I was upset it was over.  Here's the link to the Jabbawockeez, take a look they are fantastic.
