Weekend Review 44: VIP

This past weekend was definitely one for the record books. I had been in a bit of a funk and then I forced my self to go out with my friends on Friday night. A couple weeks ago, we all bought tickets to go to Wits, but I just wasn't feeling it. After selling off my ticket twice, I eventually found it back in my possession, so I figured I should go and socialize with my friends who I don't get to see very often.

A few of the girls met for a prosecco happy hour before our Green Line journey to St. Paul began. The train ride wasn't so bad and I would probably do it again to save on cab fare.

When we arrived in St. Paul we met up with the rest of the group for a quick dinner before heading over to the Fitzgerald Theatre. I had never been to the Fitzgerald, but it's a beautiful old theatre. We sat in the upper balcony and had a great view of the show. Eric Stonestreet, Cam from Modern Family, and Brandi Carlile were the shows guests.

Brandi played several songs off her new album and Eric was just funny as could be. The two played really well off each other too.

I had never been to a live taping of a radio show, so it was fun to see the interaction between everyone and how a radio show is put together. If you have some time, I suggest listening to a few of their shows, or even going to one.

Saturday was a day I had been looking forward to for a little while now. I'd had my eye on some court side Timberwolves tickets for quite some time and made the purchase while I was on vacation. That decision couldn't have come at a better time since Kevin Garnet came back to MN last week!

I had bought these tickets as a birthday present and tried to hold off sharing the details of the tickets, but my excitement got the best of me and I blabbed. The fun thing was, he didn't understand just how close the tickets actually were to the court, and the home team bench.

We started out by going to the Lexus Club locker room where we were given our own locker to store our jackets before being taken upstairs for dinner and drinks.

There were several different stations with all sorts of different food. Salads, steak, pasta, queso, cake, veggies, the options were endless.

As we were enjoying our meal, Greg Jennings of the Minnesota Vikings came in with his son and sat right next to us.

With a few minutes left before tip off, we headed in to the stadium to find our seats. They were even better than I had expected.

The Wolves put up a decent fight, but I was informed that those Grizzlies are a pretty decent team, so the loss was somewhat expected. Especially after KG was kicked out of the game.

As someone who is not a big basketball fan, this was one heck of a fun time and I'm so happy that I splurged on these tickets.

Sunday was another milestone day. My car hit 111,111 miles.

Happy Monday!
