Sex & The City 2 Days Early!

Even though my morning started off a little rough today the rest of my day turned out beautifully.

I got word from Sabrina that our Uwishunu gig had tickets to the SATC premier in Center City tonight.

Umm…count me in!

This evening I got to go see Sex & The City 2 – TWO WHOLE DAYS before the rest of the world. I’m still so excited I got to see it early!

The event first started off at the Hotel Palomar in Center City. I had never been there before, but it was pretty nice. The hotel bar – Square 1682 – had special SATC cocktails! Count me in again!

I got Charlotte’s Tea. Charlotte is my favorite character (and I love Kristin Davis!) and the drink sounded yummy!

It was just as yummy as it sounded, if not better!

Meredith got Carried Away with a Cosmo.

We were both so excited to see the movie!

The hotel bar was bumpin! Everyone was all decked out in their finest and ready to see Carrie and the girls take on Abu Dhabi.

After our signature drink, we decided to get some house wines with some appetizers before the show.

There was lots to choose from on the bar menu.

Meredith and I decided to split the beef, chicken and shrimp yakitori.

It came with three sauce choices – peanut sauce (my fav!), Korean barbeque and chili mustard. All were yummy!

Did I mention the event was hosted by Mayor Michael Nutter? Yup, that’s right. At this event, Mere and I were wined and dined by the Mayor. Ok, maybe in not so literal terms, but we did get to meet him and even snap a picture!

I’m not very political, but, meeting the Mayor of Philadelphia was pretty cool.

After some eating and drinking it was time to head down to the Prince Music Theater.

Everyone was banging down the doors to get in!

Did I mention I love Carrie? (But not as much as Charlotte!)

Who is your favorite character in SATC ?

We were given special passes to get in.

And there was even a mini red carpet!

We got there a little early to get some good seats. The place filled up fast – all seats were gone within a few minutes.

We also had some snacks to munch on during the show.

The Mayor gave a little welcome speech. I still can’t believe he is a SATC fan! So random, but kind of cool!

Then it was time for the show!

Below I listed just a few of my favorite parts without saying too much or giving anything away. The movie was 2.5 hours which was awesome. There wasn’t really much of a ‘plot’ per say, but I still enjoyed watching it just the same. I am a big fan and the movie was fun and the characters were back in full swing!

Are you a SATC fan? Are you going to see the show this weekend? Do you already have tickets?

Don’t read any further if you don’t  to know anything about the movie. I won’t give away anything, just a few of my favorite parts/things to look forward to seeing in the show!

***********POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERTS!*************

1- Liza Minnelli sings and does the dance to ‘Single Ladies’

2- Miranda is so happy the entire movie – I loved that about her!

3- Everything that comes out of Samantha’s mouth was sexual. More so than usual, if that’s possible, but it was funny.

4- Miranda & Charlotte’s special ‘sipping talk’

5- I heart Big, but I think I heart Aiden more. He’s pretty. It’s so hard to choose between the two, I don’t know how Carrie ever did it.

6- Carrie repeats a dress. Loved it!

7-  Paula Abdula

8- A black diamond. I want one.

    It is funny that you like Charlotte, because that is what I would picture you to be like. I love SATC!! So jealous. I had to close my eyes for half your blog, though…I don't want to know anything before I see the movie!

    Ooooooo! So lucky! I can't wait to see it but we will be waiting for a friend of mine to give birth and go later in June.

    Charlotte is my fav too. I love her classic, preppy style. So cute!
