We all went again into Jimboomba to find gothic costumes for a visit to the Dracula restaurant and cabaret show in Broadbeach, but unfortunately everywhere was shut as public holiday! So I ended up buying a black studded leather dog collar from the supermarket pet section and mum bought some silver chains.
We arrived around 6pm and the place was amazing – to get into the venue we were loaded into a mausoleum and given a ‘chat’ by the leading vampire. Once inside we were taken to our seats via a ghost train which we later discovered had a hidden video camera on it!!! Lol. The food and the show were both excellent, if a little bizarre. Took a little while to get into it and get used to the fact that all the waiters and waitresses were Draculas and characteristically either quite abrupt and bossy or totally absurd and crazy. But all in all, another fantastic night.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
