I have five days in London in July - but one of them (July 7) is going to be filled with Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows premiere-type things, and I may have stuff for that on the 6th and possibly the 8th as well.

On the 8th, also, I am going to omgomg Much Ado About Nothing SQUEE in the evening, so that's booked up.

I haven't been back in the UK since the summer of 1992 - I hear things have changed? I'd certainly consider going to the British Museum or the V&A, but what, specifically, should I go there - or to any other museum - to see?

What else do I want to do? Not Madame Tussaud's, and not the London Dungeons as they freaked the hell out of me when I was 14, but is there anything else theatrical that I must see? Restaurants, stores, museums, exhibitions? Is the Doctor Who exhibition worth it? I don't think I have time to get to Cardiff or Haye on Wye, unfortunately, not on this trip.

I'm staying by Leicester Square, if you have any nearby restaurant recs, as I'll probably need them on the 7th.

Plan my trip, o lovely flist! Please?

1. The final HP premiere in London will be on July 7 at Trafalger *and* Leicester Squares, as per Mugglenet, etc. today. I am expecting to be there, in London from the 5th or 6th through the 10th (for some reason, it's 1200 dollars cheaper than flying home on the 9th, no I don't know why). Does anyone want to see Much Ado with me on the 8th or 9th?

2. [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze and I are playing around with a fest at [livejournal.com profile] j2_fpsfest, where Jared & Jensen (and everyone else from the alt-verse in last week's SPN) are fictional people (and alpacas) and therefore the squick some have about writing fic about real people need not come into play! It's not just a J2 fest - anyone who exists in the alt-verse is fair game, in their fictional personas. Details are still being worked out, but it's going to be adorable and amusing!

3. Food & Wine Festival was last weekend in Miami; I had far too many burgers, and decided not to have any wine at the Grand Tasting on Sunday, so I stuck to cocktails. I think I had two to three sips from about twenty different drinks, and had much love for the Skinnygirl Margarita, this amazing Pomagranate margarita that had salt and chile flavor on the rim, and a vodka thing made from Florida oranges. The iced tea vodka was disgusting. And the new Jelly Belly cocktail flavours - mojito, cosmo, margarita - were gorgeous.

4. Loved last night's Castle - the emotions, the problem-solving smarts of the rest of the team, everything was fantastic and it was a joy to see Pasdar on my screen again. Gah, I hope this turns into a spinoff or something; after the hell that it sounds like the last two years of Heroes were for him, he deserves something good.

More catch-up postyness later.
