We didn't go to see the musical Wicked last night, but my sis in law, nephew, his girlfriend and my niece did. The younger niece did not go and at fifteen she did not really need babysitting but we did.
We all met for dinner at a new place to me, Red Silks Chinese restaurant in Bourke Street. It was excellent. We sat out on a large heated terrace just one level above Bourke Street and had a fine meal with excellent service and pretty good prices. Huge menu. Sis in law had webs from ducks feet and as I was late and they ordered for me, I was told I was getting pig's intestines for my main course. Fortunately not. It was on the menu and I was scared for a time.
Those going to the show departed and we lingered a bit to finish off the wine, caught a tram down Bourke Street, another down Elizabeth Street, walked the Elizabeth Street subway and then crossed the river on a footbridge to be at Southbank.
We took my niece up in Eureka tower to the viewing floor, we had a two for one voucher to help defray the cost, and then into the box that extends out of the building. It was surprisingly busy for nine on a weeknight.
We then caught the bus home to await the arrival of the show mob to collect my niece. I am tired today.
While going up in Eureka tower is good, I would not say that going out in the box is worth the money. You don't see anymore really, the only extra being the thrill of standing on clear glass floor with silly slip overs on your shoes.
