Fairytale of New York, Part IV

WARNING, those of you that do not appreciate Sex And the City discontinue reading (and buy the boxed set immediately!)

Sex and the City - The Complete Series (Collector's Giftset)

Those of you that do, will appreciate that an NYC trip wouldn't have been complete without Mother and I (what-a-gay) dragging Adam on a SATC Tour Bus for three and a half hours of fucking hilarious SATC times.

We were picked up outside The Plaza (a must for my next trip methinks) on Fifth, the scene of the:
Carrie: Your girl is very lovely, Hubbell
Big: I don't understand,
Carrie: You never did...

What a killer! We were then whisked off in a superbly comfortable coach (with a loo, you don't see that these days in the UK) and two screens for SATC clips galore.

The tour took us right through the city to highlight some of the major scenes and destinations that were featured in the HBO series and in the two movies. 

The first stop took us to The Pleasure Chest XXX Shop where Charlotte purchased her bunny (Ahem), we also stopped at Budhakan, the scene of the (first) rehearsal dinner in the first movie (yes it is as gorgeous as on the screen). We then paid a visit to the park in The Village where Miranda smacked her face off the floor in front of Steve's new girlfriend (who works at MasterCard) Debbie. Oh yes. 

 Us, unaware that Adam intended to take a pissing photo...

Us, slightly more aware...

We were treated to cupcakes here and got to shop in FRESH, home of products actually slapped onto SJP's face and featured in the show. I got a lipbalm and Mother bought out their soap stock. Loads of other locations were spotted INCLUDING 'Pastis' where Samantha chucked a Dirty Martini in Richard's face and said:

Dirty Martini? Dirty Bastard.

HAHAHA! It was here that we saw Russell Brand, randomly...

Lastly we indulged in Cosmopolitans at Aiden and Steve's bar, Scout (actually called O'Neill's). 


I recommend it to EVERYONE. Even Adam had a laugh and he was included in our reference to the show because our lovely guide (Staci) showed us clips on board the coach. So there is no excuse.

Book here.



  1. the soaps are fab too!

  2. It sounds and looks like you have a fabulous time honey ........ so are we saving for our next trip

  3. hahahahhahaha
    Dirty Martini? Dirty Bastard.

  4. We had a friend stay last year who is a famous blogger Brianna K and she had never seen Sex & the City so we had a back to back weekend plus the film and gave her the book to swot so she was completely immersed - can you imagine!
    She left these shores with her own boxed set and knowing loads of classic lines ......
