So, Mike and I, along with my sister and brother-in-law, went to Galapagos yesterday to check out the Floating Kabarette. Not only did we have an amazing time at the show (we were put on the guest list and had an island table reserved for us…VIPs, y’all!), we talked to Robert about finalizing the venue for our wedding. He printed out a proposal, we discussed the fine print, and before the show began, we signed the contract. The check will be in the mail tomorrow. Mike and I are having our wedding at Galapagos!
The Floating Kabarette was hilarious, by the way. Bawdy, over-the-top, and pretty much an accurate American version of Cabaret the musical. Not something I’d bring my grandparents to every day…but Robert said that if there are any acts that particularly stand out, you can specially request them for your wedding night, and they try to arrange to have them for your date, if possible. Which is wonderful, because I fell in love with some of the performers, including Brian Newman, a phenomenal trumpet player and lounge singer who looks straight out of the 1930s. Then there were some performers who basically stripped down to pasties and a thong; don’t know if I’ll quite be requesting them. But after a few drinks, maybe even my grandmother will be singing along, “Life is a cabaret, old chum…”
Oh, and save the date: Saturday, April 16, 2011.
