Weekend Review 60: She's Gone Country

Let me just start by saying that the weekend was the best yet and will be tough to beat in 2015.

Both Mike and I are big country music fans and on Friday night Love and Theft was playing at a local bar and then the Kick Up The Dust tour was on Saturday. We didn't have tickets to either one and decided that we'd keep it low key on Friday so we just hung out on Mike's patio, listened to music and had a few drinks. We found some floor tickets for the Kick Up The Dust tour for rather cheap and next thing I knew, I was going to be singing along to Dustin Lynch, Thomas Rhett, Randy Houser, Florida Georgia Line AND Luke Bryan, LIVE!

We started the afternoon on a rooftop where we grilled out and had a few pre-concert drinks before jumping on the light rail and heading to TCF Bank Stadium. The ride itself was an experience since the Twins/Cubs game had just let out on top of thousands of people trying to get to campus for a stadium show. It was like those train videos in China where you see people literally stuffing people in to trains.I'm not really kidding there either.

Once we entered the stadium I had a perma-grin on my face the whole night. I had heard of everyone that was in this show, but I didn't realize that I actually knew all of the songs!

I didn't want the night to end. It was total perfection and went by way to fast. After the show we met some friends out for a quick drink before my feet told me it was time to kick off the boots and get some rest.

Sunday was Father's Day, in case you didn't know that. We all met at one of my dad's favorite restaurants, Chino Latino, for dinner. They have a great happy hour that we like to go their for.
