We parked in the new half built car park. Caught our flights on Virgin Blue. Caught the Airtrain in the Valley.
Grabbed a super bright long sleeved shirt from a goth botique on Brunswick street before heading up to Mana Bar. Manabar was heaps of fun, with about 20 friends all jammed in having fun. SCA, Burgers (Cheeseburger gothic blog fans) and gamer friends represented. Medway's awesome gurning unleashed a thousand photochop memes. We even achieved the internet fame of a Mana bar advert!
Went to dinner at the Tibetan place next to the Arts Theatre. 13 fine people did the banquet. It was nice, basic stuff, breads, dip and curries. Once they knew we needed to be done by the show, they got their shuffle on and we made it comfortably. There was plenty to eat, and some small amount was left behind - impressive with that ravaging horde. Burgers and my mates are good at maths - we were $1.50 over on the bill :)
Meeting up with the crew went smoothly, and tickets were distributed. Two friends who were just winging it managed to get in - Simon generously gave one of his comp tickets to Greg, and Toni managed to get in on the standby list.
They play was good fun. A couple of roles were compressed, but the right cuts were made. The jokes from the book all hit home despite knowing they were coming, and the latest jokes slipped in perfectly as well, with the added bonus of shock of the new. There were a couple of themed return reference jokes that were played perfectly, especially the musical numbers with Beyonce's "Put a ring on it" and "The Teddy Bear's picnic"
Nat's blog did a great job of outlining last night shennanigans.
Abe's ten bucks was returned in a very Birmo way - taped onto the commemorative urinal. If you want your ten bucks that bad, Mr Frellman...
Birmo popped a reference to the evening, with better Burger lists than I can recall in the comment.
I picked up some merch, a couple of stubbie coolers and a "Team York Street" t-shirt.
