Hello all, you may be wondering what the poker reference might refer to. Worry not, I don’t gamble ;D Before I tell you what this is about, let’s get to my usual rant as always.
I went to this event called “Hot Vinyl Special” hosted by The Hellzapoppin Club at the Elixir Bar. So, what am I going to complain about today? As always, TRAFFIC … Look, the A1 bit from Sterling Corner to Apex corner … or whatever it’s called, was closed due to an accident. Massive traffic and then I had to go the other way completely. I went through Arkley. I have never gone that way … ever. It wasn’t a longcut xD On my way back there was traffic as well. Look, since when Chalk Farm Road has 2 lanes? Really? It’s single lane and there we had 2 lanes. That caused traffic at 3:30 AM in the night (or morning??). Cars would split into 2 lanes and back into one. Many people were still alive … crossing everywhere. Camden … right? /rant.
OK, now that I am no longer mad about it, shall we get to the awesomeness I had last night? Theorically, we danced for 6 hours (9 PM – 3 AM), practically, we danced for 5 hours (due to clock moving forward, we lost one hour of dancing 🙁 ), in reality, I danced for 4 hours. I got there at around 10-ish, due to that bloody traffic.
The venue is great. Quite large dance floor comparing to other events in London. Nice floor. Great people, great DJs. I really enjoyed the music and dancing. Even though there weren’t many of us, I had a fabulous time nevertheless. I believe there was lack of followers … can you imagine that? LACK OF FOLLOWERS?? On the other hand, I was not that much in demand, so I had regular breaks but I probably not going to dance tonight anywhere … my feet hurt 😀
Next time, Olver’s Dime Notes are going to play live. They are really good and I believe I blogged about them here already. There is going to be a guest DJ as well so I will be there for sure unless I am somewhere abroad.
So, if you wonder what the full house means in this post, it’s just my ego booster. You know, there were 3 DJs – Miss B Nightingale, Tim Hellzapoppin and Tequila Mockingbird. I got selfies with all of them! Yes, that’s why I called it full house ;D
And as always, lots of selfies. If you want to get exposure on your facebook, show off to your friends which awesome events you go to, you can ask me to take photos with you free of charge (for now :D) and then I’ll post them here and tag you on Facebook. Yes, I do respect people’s privacy, I won’t out if you don’t want me to 😀 Deal?
