[blockquote author=”Mark Twain”]”The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not”[/blockquote]I love food.
For me, that sentence could be the end of this blog post. Just, ‘I love food’.
Food means so much to many different people. It’s fun for the senses as well as being a social activity often accompanied by alcoholic beverages and a few giggles with friends. That’s where Kinetic Comedy comes in.
As previously mentioned in my first post, I don’t live in London, so my journey to Kinetic is fairly long, and at a time of day when most people eat their dinner. Myself, Becky and Harriet always struggle to decide what to do for the best when it comes to Friday night dinner. Do we eat before we get to London, when we’re not really hungry? Do we eat afterwards, meaning we’ll be blinding drunk and ravenous? Or do we sample the delights of The Library’s Thai cuisine during Kinetic and risk having our chips eaten by Inel or another comedian?
We’ve actually done all three options!
If we eat before, it’s usually a scramble to grab a Maccy Ds or a sandwich from M&S. We’re then hungry again by the time we get back to our hotel and we raid the vending machine for Mini Chedders (for Harriet) and chocolate!
If we eat afterwards, it’s either Maccy Ds again (cold chips) or like last month; Tapas in Angel at 2am. This sounded like a genius idea by our friend, James, at the time (especially as he and Inel ended up paying!), but I was regretting it when I saw my dinner in reverse at around 4am….then 5am….then 6am….
The alternative to sandwiching the show, is to eat at The Library. Kinetic do a great meal deal where you can get your ticket and your dinner all for just £12! It’s an absolute bargain! You get a certain amount of money that you can spend, per person, so we (The Peef 3) decided to get a bunch of starter dishes and shared. It was soooooo good. The only problem we had was that there were so many people in the audience, we didn’t have a lot of room to eat upstairs, and our table ended up being used as a seat!
My advice: get there as early as you can and enjoy your meal downstairs with a nice cocktail. That way, you can sign in, have your eyes on the door to make sure you get the best seat upstairs, but you can also be comfortable whilst enjoying the delicious Thai food on offer.
Has anybody else eaten at The Library? Or do you have a funny story about trying to grab a bite before or after a show? Please share; I’d love to hear from you!
Oooo and while you’re here (thanks for lasting this long!), let me tell you who the winner of the competition for the funniest comment on my last post is……
