Boe & Burgers with friends...

4 weeks ago back in December part of my Christmas activities included taking some special ladies in my life out for the evening to see Alfie Boe. The golden girls as they are affectionately known are big Alfie fans and I grabbed tickets for them as a Christmas treat.
We headed to the O2 early so that we could make the most of the evening, the O2 has undergone a huge development of food offers and we were pleasantly surprised at the choices we had, opting for burgers at Byron.
A couple of us opted for the Holy Cheesemas  ~ 2 6oz patties, four kinds of cheese;mature cheddar, american, red leicester, monterey jack, double bacon, red onion , iceberg, pickles & cheesemas sauce. With sides of fries, onion rings & a Brooklyn Beer it was the perfect pick me up from from stateside slump having returned from NY that week.
Having been fed and watered we moved into the arena to be entertained by Mr Boe for the evening. We saw Alfie in Brighton in 2013 and expected a similar type of how, how wrong we were, this was a completely different show, complete with a fabulous orchestra & band.
Highlights of the evening were of course the gorgeous "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables.

At the end of the evening Alfie pulled a lady Emily out of the audience who asked to sing with him and this is what happened... Alfies reaction is just lovely
.
Myself and the golden girls had a fabulous evening and I am delighted to have ticked another box on their bucket lists!
