On Thursday night, my friends and I decided to go out to dinner and then to see the premiere of the show that Justin Long is in town to do: Samuel J. and K. If you haven't heard about it, don't worry; it's the world premiere, so it hasn't been performed anywhere but here yet! Justin plays Samuel J. and Owiso Odera, who is also totally awesome, plays Samuel K., his adopted brother from Cameroon. The writer, Mat Smart, is phenomenal. I wouldn't be surprised if this show makes it far--I've heard rumors that it might get picked up in London in the West End, but who knows if Justin and Owiso will be able to stay with it then, since both are pretty active in their tv and film careers.
We were also going out as a goodbye dinner for Moyukh, who just left for Cape Town, South Africa on Saturday. When we asked him what he wanted to do as a goodbye dinner, he answered that he wanted to do sake bombs at the Chinese restaurant.
Well, what Moyukh wants, Moyukh gets, so that is what we did.
Rachel and I, however, opted for something a bit more ladylike, and got a giant scorpion bowl with pretty straws:
After dinner, we went over to the theater. Moyukh had promised us he'd bring Justin white roses, but at the last minute all he managed were to pick some tiny flowers from the grass. This, combined with the fact that all the boys ended up wearing blue shirts, made for a hilarious picture.
The show was really great. Even Moyukh and Zeb, who don't really see plays all that often, loved it. The writing was current, fresh, funny, and heartfelt.
Oh, and for those of you who may have been hoping that we'd finally get a picture with Justin, without further ado:
Kind of exciting!!! Even though only Moyukh and Zeb were lucky enough to be in the picture. (Also, please observe Zeb's face. He seems excited, no?) And Owiso is in the orange shirt. With that wonderful picture, I think Justin will be staying off the blog for awhile now.
After the show we continued our goodbye party for Moyukh, and Rachel and I decided to make the most delicious drink ever: Gin and Lemonade with fresh fruit. Like I had said in my previous post, when I asked for this at the golf course, the bartender thought it was really strange. Well, I am here to say that it is delicious.
We used fresh raspberries and they gave the drink a nice pink color. Oh, and please pardon the fact that this picture is taken on the floor. You remember college.
And in case you were wondering, Operation Get Lucas to Go to Mohegan Sun Over the Weekend was a success!!! More on that soon! (Hint: It was a BLAST.)
