Warhorse – The Play

Rene and I saw Warhorse and it was amazing. The puppetry and spectacle were awe inspiring and there was even a tank!

We took the time to have dinner before hand at Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge where I had my first dirty martini (with blue cheese stuffed olives).

The food was so good! We made faces like this:

And this was us before we left for the show.

 After the show we looked at the exhibits around the lobby. Many of them were winding down because the show was over, but we did get a chance to take a picture of the diagram for the horse puppet. It was really neat to see the mechanics of the horse.

Now I’m not one to review things in-depth  but I will say that I have never felt so much for an inanimate object. The puppeteers were masters of making the horse work and I was far more moved by the horse than by the humans – as I suppose I should have been. The show is called Warhorse not Warhuman, after all. I’d also like to give a special shout-out to the goose. It was a funny goose.
It is in it’s last week at the Sergerstrom Cemnter for The Arts, so if you have the time I suggest seeing it. Living Social or Groupon may still be offering ticket deals – but I don’t have links for them.
See you next time!

Project 365 6-12-2010 Impromptu Date-Night

Rene and I were hungry, but we didn’t know what to eat.  We ran errands until we could think of something.  We stopped by my parent’s house, no idea what to get.  We got back in the car, no idea what to get.  Eventually, because we were by Fullerton, I suggested the Old Spaghetti Factory.  Rene countered with Rutabagorz…

…thus began our impromptu date night!

After Rutas we headed over to The Olde Ship for sticky toffee pudding and a beer.  Since this was also the same night as the US vs. England World Cup game the whole pub was deco’d in Union Jacks but we heard nothing about the game.

After that we made the spontaneous decision to see Shmimprov.

Today’s picture is of the clock when we rolled in and were about to sleep:

Of all the fun stuff we did tonight this is when I remembered to take a picture.

I was so disappointed.

See you tomorrow!
