Four wild women took the afternoon off Friday and heading out on a road trip to the big city! We arrived late afternoon, checked into a very nice hotel, put on some war paint, threw on some party clothes and hit the city.
We found a great little restaurant/wine bar and ordered a few glasses of Pino Grigio.
After a few sips we looked at the menu and realized what we ordered was $18 a glass. A GLASS..... (Thankfully when she brought our bills she made a mistake and it was only $13 a glass. Sheesh, oh well, we don't go wild every day)
I had this delicious squash stuffed ravioli and followed it with some amazing chocolate gelato. A really great meal.
Then we headed off to the main event. We had concert tickets to see Alan Doyle. Front row seats to the sold out show!!!
The show was incredible. Absolutely incredible! We had such a great time that it seems we forgot we were middle aged women. We convinced ourselves we were in our 20's or something. We headed to the the Old Triangle Irish Pub where we sang and danced some more. But this was the best part - the 2 guys playing at the Triangle had a guest on stage
See the lady sitting on stage in the middle? She was 89 years old and was up there playing the spoons! She was so cool in her funky hat. The old doll had rhythm. She played until midnight when her son decided to take her home. We all hope we can be as vibrant as her in our golden years.
We closed the pub and then wandered up to what is known as Pizza Corner. It's the spot where everyone ends up after the bars close to eat street food. We were clearly the oldest people in the area (by at least 25 years). Nothing like eating questionable street food at 2am. Lol
I will say this morning was a little rough. I'm too old to keep up that pace anymore. I had to have a nap in the car while the rest of the girls hit Costco. Sad but true.
