First a quick note–if you were interested in the Milo (choc drink post)…please go read the updated post. A local mom commented and I was wrong about some stuff. Thanks for the comment!
Now back to our regularly scheduled post
I’m so sick of being sick. I’ve spent a huge chunk of the last month indoors on my couch or in my bed as illness after illness laid me low. The other American mom I know here says it happened to her and a lot of her friends, too…sort of an unmentioned rite of passage.
Anyway, I was sick of being sick…so I decided to see a movie in the Gold Class cinema.
Gold Class is the luxe brand of the Golden Village Chain. It’s somewhat similar to the cinema De Luxe at Patriot Place (and I think there’s one in Dedham now, too) but rather than just the top few rows of the cinema, here it is an entire theater retrofitted to luxurious standards.
For about $20 US, you get…
Sorry-iPhone camera and bad lighting
Your very own over-sized recliner with a blanket. A table between your seat and the one next to you with a call button for butler service. Butler service can bring you soda, wine, mixed drinks, popcorn, candy, appetizers and dinner. Your recliner, at the push of a button can recline almost flat.
It’s not a cheap date (even when you’re just taking yourself out), but the dedicated line (so you don’t have to wait), the dedicated lounge (for pre-movie eating if that’s more to your liking) and the table service (skipping the popcorn lines) all make for a pampered experience.
After feeling crappy for so long, it definitely felt nice to be pampered.
