    Getting Psyched about my upcoming and well-needed trip that kicks off in London

    I'll be staying at the Strand Palace Hotel
    Friend of mine who lived there says it's the best location

    All you guys in London
    Let me know where the best places are to go
    Esp when it comes to men and dancing icon_wink.gif

    Men and dancing - they're all in Vauxhall at Fire, Area etc. See qxmagazine.com for listings. Best nights are Friday and Saturday.

    Don't forget Salvation at The Hippodrome in Leicester Sq. That's where all the really beautiful men go. However, these days with the internet and all I think it may only be once a month.

    Not 100%. I am seeing Kylie, but then I am going to spend almost a week there. I'm going to Brighton Pride, then to see Stonehenge and then Oxford, then back to London.

    Yup, I'm seeing her at the 02 arena. I did go to see her last year, but she had to cancel the show partway through dues to illness.

    Have a drink with me and then you can decide for yourself if I am unlikable in real life as on the new-boob-tube.

    By the Strand Palace you will find the Courtauld Institute - highly recommended.

    Get food at Abeno Too and/or The Anchor & Hope.

    Have drinks at Friendly Society (pretty gay and fabulous). And The Box, in Covent Garden.

    Grab an amazing vintage cocktail at the slightly more heterosexual Hawksmoor (good for food too)-- near to Shoreditch/Hoxton which is its own sort of cool too.

    Not sure about Friday night... Fire and Area, like redhead said, are open but I think Fire is better on Saturday and I've not really been to Area that much.

    Go to Fire on Saturday Night-- it's ridiculous. You won't come home till late Sunday morning.

    Have a great trip.
