Coming up roses
But there is more to be thankful for. With the help of Dubya's 'thumping', for the first time ever a woman is third in line to be US president. And whilst over in Britain this week, women received more news of the latest glass ceiling heights, we are too inspired by the prospect of Hillary as CEO of the 'free-world' in two years to give it much thought. So with smug delight and the world at our feet (c'mon, for today, join in the dream that democracy matters), let's indulge our rose-tinted view with the 14th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Aghast at today's headline that the cost of raising a child has jumped to £180, 137? React by promoting singleton status and head to London's newest nightclub, Kitts , where the spirit of the Caribbean is brought to Chelsea. The new Boujis?
2) Assume tomorrow's Lord Mayor's Show is a trap for Thames-bound tourists? React by enjoying the South Bank a night early, and head to the Hayward Gallery's 'A Space Where Music Resonates' evening for high-brow, late-night boozing. Tonight 7-11 PM.
3) Overly excited by the hype surrounding Chester-born, (move-over-Hugh-Grant-Now-We-Finally-Have-A-Real-British-Icon), Daniel Craig as the best Bond since Sean Connery? React by delaying the pleasure and getting your heated action from the one-off chances at the Latin American Film Festival. Top picks include Broken Sky (11 & 19 Nov) and Loving Maradona (12 Nov).
