Coldplay and the golf

Melbourne is well known for being busy on the weekends but this week saw it fill Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the first time in a very, very long time.

It started with the Coldplay concert on Tuesday night and the rest was due to the Australian Masters Golf which starts today. In years past we have put it down to the Tiger Woods effect, so with him not making the trip down under this year, we didn't have any expectations for this event.

We were keeping an eye on the Tuesday night due to the concert and late last week noticed that availability was quickly disappearing. We grabbed the final few rooms that we thought were decent value but it was nowhere near enough as we were flooded with calls on Friday and throughout this week.

Many months ago we put together a large allotment for Coldplay's concert in Brisbane on Wednesday night so our fingers are crossed that the same happens.

Closed for The Cup

The "race that stops a nation" will tomorrow also close Capital Reservations ... for the day.

Our office will be closed tomorrow (for the entire day) as Adam and I are off to Doomben to enjoy the Melbourne Cup festivities in a marquee. The menu (by renowned chef Philip Johnson) and the drinks package (including Bollinger champagne) was way too good to turn down so we're off to the track but will of course be back as per normal on Wednesday.

If you need any assistance tomorrow (Perth next week most likely) please e-mail the details through to me and we'll get on to it first thing on Wednesday morning.
