Being open to adventure was definitely a good thing yesterday! My sweetie had arranged for us to have a night out, but refused to tell me any details. He even went to so far as to make me cancel a meeting I had planned so we could go out specifically last night AND I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Allen’s on the Danforth and got some delicious, grass-fed burgers and Guinness in their pub. I was in my happy place in an Irish pub, having meat and Guinness with my main squeeze – what could be better? Then, he covered my eyes and unveiled an envelope. Puzzled, I opened it and read a note asking if I was ready for a night out with The Avett’s. The word ‘excited’ cannot contain my unbounded joy at reading those words. What a fabulous surprise! We finished up our pints, walked a bit then headed to our nose-bleed seats at the music hall. They were amazing – not a bad seat in the house. The show rocked! Such passion in music, combined with powerful lyrics and the crowd’s energy made for an outstanding evening. About halfway through the set, we decided to risk it and make our way down to the stage based on a tip from a fellow concert goer. So glad that we did!! We ended up near the second row for an up-close and intimate experience with the brothers Avett. I am a lucky woman indeed. What an amazing adventure!
And because every post needs some pictures – the 2 views of the show as captured on my blurry cell phone. 🙂
