The weather is horrible and muggy at the moment, so a cool-but-still-nice-for-the-theatre dress was called for. Ballet flats added a casual touch. How sad that no-body seems to dress up any more - I've seen torn jeans at the Opera House -I long for the days when going to the theatre was considered a treat and people took a bit more effort with their attire.
Hubby took us to dinner at Gowings Bar and Grill in the new QT Hotel (click on the first picture link for a little promo video) that's just opened up right next to the theatre, in the old Gowings Building (little video shows old footage and interior of new hotel). I fell in love with the walls of retro paraphernalia.
The orchestra was nothing like I'd envisaged, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was an hilarious evening.
