... who kept walking into us and stealing the singers microphone! After a few drinks, the show finished, so we headed off, and got some cool looking photos in the street where they had some cool Christmas lights, then we went down to hillbillies again! Darren got chicken and I got curry chips again, which were still yummy. We walked home after that, and hung out a while watching some YouTube videos, then eventually got to bed at around ...

This is a top pick!

... goal was to look for an ice cream shop, but we weren't having too much luck with that. Feeling a bit dejected, we were about to head back when we passed a movie theatre. Batman was playing at 8:00pm…and it was 7:55pm! It was a long shot, but we decided we would go see if there were any tickets left. Good news, there were! Actually the theatre was quite dead, and it was a Friday night. Anyways, we had excellent seats, and we ...
