Foo Fighters at Fenway

Oh, whoa, hello. My bad on not writing for what, months? Man, I’m so sorry. I’m going to start getting back into this and I was trying to figure out how, so I just thought- write something and then everything else will eventually flow out.

This past weekend, Thom and I took a night off from working at Fenway to go to Fenway as fans! The Foo Fighters were playing both Saturday and Sunday, and we were generously gifted tickets as a Christmas present from his parents.

We invited my brother, Nick,  and Thom’s friend, Dan, to join us.

As most people know, Dave Grohl has broken his leg and needed surgery about a month ago. Luckily for us, he is a tough sumbitch and had a throne created for him to perform on. It was magnificent!

I don’t have many pictures aside from these, as I wanted to just enjoy the show. It was incredible! They opened with Everlong and ended with Best of You with all their other great songs in between. They played for almost 3 straight hours, which is unbelievable. No lie, it was on the top of the list of the shows I’ve been to. I don’t know how any one could top their show.

The Foo Fighters are a band that I’ve been wanting to see since about 8th grade, so like 1999. That’s insane. Even better, I always loved Nirvana, too. Seeing Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters is as close as I’ll ever get to seeing Nirvana and I’ll glady take it. Thom and I even got a second go around, as we both worked at the concert on Sunday night.

Date Night Adventure

I am always down for a random roadtrip or a new adventure. Luckily, my boyfriend is the same. It’s also his birthday (hooray!) and because we’re basically children, we hit up the brand new Lego Land Discovery Center for Adult Night last night!

Basically, Adult Night tickets get you access into Lego Land (no children allowed!) and you can play with the Legos, see a 4D movie, go on the rides, and win prizes all while drinking booze. It’s sweet.

But first, let's take a selfie!

For those of you who don’t know, I live in Boston, which is pretty much my favorite city in the whole world. You can imagine my excitement I had when the first room we walked into was all Lego creations of Boston landmarks!

Thom and I both work at Fenway Park, so it was neat to see the Lego Fenway (for me at least). It even had a little Lego Ted Williams statue!

The whole night was a blast. We played with a lot of Legos, made a cool Lego clown (it was a Carnival themed night), and went on a sweet ride to save a princess. We take princess rescues very seriously, as you’ll see below.

If you get the chance, I totally suggest hitting up an Adult Night at Lego Land. I’m sure the place is fun when you have kids there, too, but it was awesome to just hang out and not worry about small children at your feet. Also, we got to keep the Legos to ourselves.
