The Royal Automobile Club.

On Friday night I attended an event at The Royal Automobile Club in London. It was a Comedy and Tapas night for the Young Members Inter-Club group which I belong to. So anyway, the comedy was hosted by the Comedy Store Players, and the Tapas...well, I personally wouldn't have called it Tapas...more like a buffet with some Spanish foods.

I got myself all dressed up, and got the tube from Uxbridge where my Uni is, to Green Park, where I met a friend of mine from The Lansdowne Club and off we went to the RAC, which is about a 10 minute walk from Green Park. The RAC is on Pall Mall, the same street as The Travellers Club, Reform Club and Oxford and Cambridge Club. The RAC is one of my favourite clubs, it's so beautiful and it really is my ideal club; beautiful architecture, great facilities, amazing food, and cars! The facilities include a large swimming pool, turkish baths, and squash courts. My friend and I met some other friends of ours at the entrance and we all made our way up to one of the ballroom's where the event was being held. We made the most of the drinks reception, before getting the cameras out to 'attempt' to do our regular photographer Scrym, proud. (He was unable to attend the event so it was up to the rest of us to get the photos).

Part of the Ballroom - I couldn't fit it all in!

The Comedy Store Players

Thankfully I was on a great table with a few friends, and we had a fantastic evening. Immanuel took it on himself to bully the waiters into giving us more food when I was still hungry, and then when we got back to our table to discover they had taken our cutlery, he wouldn't leave them alone until they gave us more. The Comedy Store Players were excellent, very entertaining and extremely clever! After the show we then proceeded down to the bar. I headed back to Green Park to get the last tube back, while everyone else went to Maggies (an 80's themed club on the KR dedicated to Maggie Thatcher), and my house-mate and friend Ana very kindly picked me up from Heathrow when I realized that no buses go near our house at 2am. What a life saver!
