Absinthe


A couple of weekends ago I headed in to NYC with some friends to see Absinthe (the show, not the little green fairy) a sexy, campy, burlesque, acrobatics show and it was AMAZING! Everyone sat with their mouths agape as the performers spun, climbed, roller-skated and danced around and above us. The venue was small but the entertainment was huge, only made better by the fact the there was no line at the bar. Four martini's later and I was ready to volunteer to swing by my neck over the crowd too!

The show was at South Street Seaport (haven't been there since I was a kid) with a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge as we walked in. The actual show took place inside a circus tent but there were bleachers (including pillows), chairs and hammocks to lounge on outside of the tent before and after the show. Afterwards we even snagged our own mini-tent for the 20 people our group turned out to be. Of course we couldn't take pictures inside, but you can see below that it was a grand time!

Where do we go?


In here ya think?















Seriously, this was a show worth seeing and I would go back any time. It brought back that warm feeling after seeing De La Guardia - I think I like acrobatics a tad come to think of it. Cirque Du Soleil here I come!

And yes, some more socks are done! YAY for stash busting!!!



More knitting news on its way soon........

I'm going to tell Vinny Absinthe is Cirque du Soliel with boobies and see if he'll go. It looks like it was so much fun!

Socks look great too!

I can't see 2 of the pictures... my stupid internet. Amy's condom critter was so much bigger than it looks in the picture - it was awesome. I loved it(and the note that went w/ it was so perfect).

After Absynthe, the bachelorette party, and now the upcoming wedding... I'd like to have a lame tea party in October, please. With no alcohol.
