Can't get enough 50 Shades of Grey? We confess we haven't read it yet, but we're certainly well aware of the hype surrounding E.L James' books. So while you wait for the 50 Shades movie to come out, can we interest you in something a bit more, uh, immersive? Why not try a 50 Shades dinner party?
Before you get too hot and bothered, the 50 Shades Of Grey dinner/date experience is being designed and sponsored by a British tourism company, aiming to capitalize off the success of the book. The Falstaff Experience company is currently casting for an actor to play Christian Grey. Once chosen, he'll be "expected to lead women around the town, entertain them, and ensure they find their way to the best places to eat and drink."
Ben Pugh, events and engagement manager for the Falstaff Experience says they expect their future Mr. Grey to act with "decency and decorum." So we're betting that heavy spanking is probably off the table.
Continues Pugh, "Humor and fun are at the core of all of our tours and this one will be no different. The real challenge will be to make the very serious character of Mr Grey appealing in a fun way." Yes, that certainly will be a challenge.
For fans who simply can't afford the trip to London, take heart: The 50 Shades movie is still in the works, and there's always the 50 Shades planned underwear line.
