What a great show! I'm so glad I mentioned to Rusty that tickets to this show would make a good birthday present -- instead of shining it on, as I so often do. Bryan Adams has been a favorite for a long time -- you know, for about 27 years! I've been a fan of "unplugged" ever since MTV invented it, and this "Bare Bones" concert -- Bryan referred to is simply as "un" -- really appealed to me. Bryan playing an acoustic guitar, sometimes a harmonica, and with occasional piano accompaniment.
So, one month + a day after my 52nd birthday (and one month + 2 days after Bryan's 51st -- that's sorta weird -- no wonder I like him so much - plus, he's a pretty good photographer!) we were there! So fun.
We began our evening dodging our little town's Christmas parade and dashing to make our reservation at Z Harvest Cafe in Green Bay -- very close to the concert venue at the Weidner Center. It's been nearly 6 years since we were there last -- for dinner on one of the very first days of The Quit! Ahman Green, celebrated Packers running back at the time -- was seated in the booth right behind Rusty. The food was fabulous then, and is still fabulous! I scoped out the menu ahead of time and had some difficulty choosing amongst the entrees, but no problem at all with the dessert offerings! Heh. When I saw "tres leches cake" at the top of the list, I knew I'd have to leave room! I decided on potato crusted roasted salmon served over fresh sauteed spinach with root vegetables. Yum. It's what's for lunch today, too!
