Oysters and Rock

I haven't posted anything for a couple of days, been a bit busy but that's no excuse! Anyway it's weekend and at the Phoenix bar this afternoon I started off with a serious win over Frank in the FA Cup pool competition, then Danny came over and challenged me, I managed to beat him in the first game and he gave me the second with a black ball foul! It seemed that I couldn't go wrong but then in walked Don, he was into it straight away and easily beat me in the first game and then he gave me the second game also with a black ball foul.
After an intense hour I managed to end off 3 - 2 down to an ebulient Don who then rushed off to welcome his first evening guests to his restaurant. What an enjoyable afternoon and a great way to start the weekend.
We are going down to the Hout Bay Yacht Club tomorrow where I am assisting with an oyster promotion, I am going to be opening 400 oysters at the club before the Super 14 rugby final where the Stormers (our team) will be facing up to the Blue Bulls at the Orlando stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg. This should be one hell of a game, GO STORMERS!!!!
I will post some photographs of the weekend and I will let you know the outcome of the rugby game.
On a different note I managed to get a ticket to the "Masters of Rock" concert which is taking place at the Grand West Arena at the Casino in Capetown on Tuesday evening! Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Wishbone Ash will be performing live! I cannot wait, this is going to be fantastic. When I phoned to book I was told that all that was left was "Gold Circle standing area", this is right in front of the stage and I was quite happy because as soon as the music starts everyone stands up anyway, it's going to be an invigorating evening with music that gets into my soul, music that makes the goosebumps rise and the heart pound in time to the drum beat.
Steve Morse who is arguably the best guitarist in the world is gonna do his thing with Deep Purple and I just know they are going to raise the roof with "Smoke on the Water", have you any idea how good this is going to be?
Anyway there is not going to be any saddle time this weekend becaue I have to transport all of the oysters down to Hout Bay but it should be fun, they are a great bunch of people and I think Dick and I will be a little more circumspect with the whisky bottle tomorrow night!
I hope your weekend is going to be as good as mine.
