Redbull and Shakespeare

Things have been rockin' here in London this weekend.

Steph kicked things off Friday night at a Kyle Minogue concert at the O2 dome which she said was fun.

Saturday was the last of the Shakespeare summer performances at the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park so at the last minute we hopped on the train and rushed over to try and get tickets. Luckily we were able to score two grass bank seats for Romeo and Juliet.

It was a nice evening weather wise and we enjoyed the performance. Sorry but I'm not a performing arts critique so I'm not going to rate the show. Who knew they both died at the end, that's no fun...

Ha ha, just kidding, I did learn a little Shakespeare in high school.

Anyway, we are going to have to explore Regent's Park a bit more because what little we saw made it look like a great space to hang out in.

Finally, to round out the weekend we had passes to the RedBull Air Race in London today. What a show! I don't know how the pilots do what they do, flying that fast, that low to the water with such G force. For those who haven't seen this Air Race here is a quick clip. Sorry for the lame music. Just mute the sound when it starts.

The weather wasn't good but the racing was very good! And to top if off an American pilot won the race, nice one!

Oh, if your curious about the title a popular night out drink is Redbull and Vodka.

I guess its back to work tomorrow...
