Tom Jones Tribute by Tony Gold at Gozo Garden Millennium Aiport Hotel

Thursdays will never been the same since I discovered The Terrace-Gozo Garden Millennium Airport Hotel great artist’s tributes done by world class performers. The Blues Brothers and Phil Collins are among the tributes I have seen and the latest was the tribute to the Welsh singer Tom Jones by Tony Gold. They said Tina Turner tribute was one of the best hence I will be thrilled to see her back on stage.

Tony Gold
I grew familiar with Tom Jones songs because my late dad used to sing them and my brother also sings them during our karaoke nights, they are both his fan. I know quite a handful of songs of his like It's Not Unusual, Green Green Grass of Home, Delilah, She's A Lady, I Who Have Nothing, Please Release Me, I'll Never Fall In Love Again, and Yesterday which are all beautiful classic songs. I get to enjoy listening to these songs again during the tribute last May 1 along with a very special person, mentor and a good ol' friend of mine who happened to be on a month holiday in Dubai, Ms Rebecca Tiongson. We used to call her Ma'am Becs, now a school principal in one of the schools in our city, she used to be our Guidance Counselor in high school and head of the Peer Facilitators Club where I belong. It really is a small world and at times you never know who you will bump with. Ma'am Becs, it was really really nice to see you again and thank you for accepting this dinner invitation. I hope that you had a good time.

On our table we have Ms. Cindy Botes - Millennium Airport Hotel's Banqueting Coordinator with her husband, Mr. Ben Hipolito - F&B Administrator and Ms. Shiela of with her husband.

Tribute nights are every first and last Thursday of each month, an upcoming tribute is for the famous American singer-songwriter Lionel Richie by Jason Leigh on the 29th of May 2014.

Gozo Garden - Thursday BBQ Nights with Phil Collins Tribute

Dubai got a lot of rain fall last week until Wednesday and thank goodness Thursday was a sunny spring day again. It was a pleasant Thursday night with stars gazing down to us, beautiful weather and superb atmosphere around Dubai.

We started our weekend right and sit down to a BBQ dinner al fresco at Gozo Garden at Millenium Airport Hotel with the company of good friends. We are back and this time was with a Phil Collins tribute, the last time I was here, it was for The Blues Brothers.

It was a fun filled evening which got even livelier when Andrew James takes center stage and started singing Phil Collins songs, here's one of the performances that I've recorded, oh dear I can dance into it - and yeah just like the song, this is another day in paradise.

The night was even more special since I finally get to meet the blogger behind, Angelo is now blogging in the sandpit. Also the ever gorgeous and fashionista - Rosell of Kero's Celebration was with us.

A big thank you to Mr. Ben Hipolito, Millenium Airport Hotel, and Gozo Garden for inviting us. Seems like Dubai pips have a lot to look forward to this coming May 2014 with Tom Jones and Lionel Richie in the lineup.

Thursday BBQ Night at The Terrace Millenium Airport Hotel with Blues Brothers Tribute

No comments:
I did not get a free Baskin Robins ice cream nor Tim Hortons coffee being given away around Dubai after Dubai won the bid for Expo 2020 but boy I got something better than ice cream and coffee. It was a real treat to have watched the Illinois Blues Brothers Tribute last night at The Terrace Millennium Airport Hotel, I'm sold to the idea that it's their act whose all other acts must be judge. The energy of this duo is incomparable and they are really really good. The crowd just love them, and speaking of crowd, The Terrace was full and was very busy last night, way to go guys!

And yes they did not leave without a fan pic...I mean I didn't let go of them before having this photo here. Epic? I guess so! 

Another thing grand last night was the spread prepared by Gozo Garden Restaurant for Thursday BBQ night. There are many options for your BBQ - there's marinated meat, chicken and seafood with all different sauces. 

You can also opt for a stir fry cooked right before your eyes.

The carving station reminds me that it was Thanksgiving Day and I thought of all the things I should be thankful for. I ordered a slice of turkey topped with cranberry sauce for celebratory feel.

All fresh at salad bar, very appetizing.

Here's what goes on to my plate, BBQ of course, steak and prawns grilled to perfection

some maki rolls, corn salad, some greens with butter-lemon sauce and my turkey slice topped with cranberry sauce

The bigger plate had some grilled salmon wrapped in banana leaves, pasta penne with four cheeses, barbacoa pork ribs and mixed seafood then all were washed down with some refreshing orange juice.

All dinners must have good endings and my sweet tooth couldn't be any happier by the sight of these mouthwatering delights

Gozo Garden Restaurant is preparing every night a feast like this one and since it's Thursday it's BBQ night, at AED 149 per person including selected house beverages with live entertainment, you get the best deal.

Head down to The Terrace located at Millennium Airport Hotel for 7 Days 7 Feast of gastronomic journey around the globe

Sunday: Latino Samba
Monday: Mediterranean
Tuesday: Oriental
Wednesday: Out of Africa
Thursday: BBQ Nights
Friday: Seafood Galore
Saturday: Arabian Night
