Last weekend my beautiful friend Rach and I packed our bags and said good bye to the circus… well it was Sheffield actually but the circus sounds so much more romantic . We made our way across the Pennines and an hour later arrived bright eyed, bushy tailed and munching on a MacDonald’s in Manchester (to line our stomachs of course)to attend Miss Lisa Turners hen do.
On arrival we checked in the hotel, made a quick change into our party outfits, applied a spot of lippy and ran the brush through our hair. Ready, we made our way to All Stars Ten Pin Bowling at Great Northern on Deansgate. Your probably thinking the same as us! What, why?
All we had been told was to get to All Star Lanes for 8 pm, to expect bowling at some point , nibbles and a little karaoke .
Tottering along in totally unsuitable bowling attire (dress and killer heels) we arrived like 2 dolls heads some 5 minutes later and were chaperoned towards the Private room.
It’s impressive – the Private Room (above) was great and more spacious than I had imagined, it holds up to 300 people. There were 2 bowling lanes, a fully manned Cocktail Bar, plenty of room to grab a seat and your own toilets (always a bonus)
Note Bowling shoes … look pretty daft with dresses!
I had my very first ever Porn Star Martini (above) expensive yes … but totally worth it – YES ! When your a ten-bob millionaire whats it matter anyway.
I also had my first taste of a Collar and Cuff (half naked) Butler! I’m not at all happy about this as you can see!
I’ve asked him if he will come to Sheffield to do my ironing!!
Apparently if your paying they will come and do anything (oh I say!) household- cleaning related of course!
Towards the end of the night and feeling a little brave due to alcohol ‘abuse’ Rach asked if we could have our photo taken with one of the butlers and we got chatting. Apparently to get a bum like that we need to squat. Im sure if I squatted every day for the rest of my life I wouldn’t get a bum like that! They also told us this story which is priceless. They have a regular client whose in her 70’s. She hires them every week for an hour, she plonks herself on the settee with a cup of tea, her feet up and admires the view. Can’t blame her really it is all rather peachy!
I love that story… t.h.i.s w.i.l.l.b.e.m.e !
What goes on hen stays on hen , so I really cant say too much, when the cucumbers and condoms came out, away went my camera. I can however recommend All Star Lanes as the ideal place to host a party. It was such fun, a change from the norm and we laughed non-stop.
If you fancy adding your own personal Collars and Cuff Butler they can be found on twitter @YourServiceEnt ask for Dale or Charlie. You may thank me later:)
