I’ve written many times about the concerts we go to. I even did two A to Zs about the scrapbook pages I have done to remember them, first in 2017 and the second time in 2020. Our most recent concert was last Thursday when we saw Journey and Toto at Chase Center. I had not intended to get tickets even though we love Journey because the tickets were expensive and we don’t like to sit too far away. At the last minute we heard that our friends were going so I thought I’d take a look to see what tickets were left. It was the day before show and I guess there were some tickets that didn’t sell and I managed to get seats in the 5th row on the floor! They were less expensive than some seats shown farther away.
We met our friends on their boat (named Journey!) for cocktails and snacks and then walked to the venue, our first time at Chase since it opened a couple years ago. We had to shoo the seals off the walkway to get by. It looked like they were on a date too! Actually it looked like it was mating season for the seals because there were a bunch of them prancing around in the water. Maybe they were on the way to the concert as well.
I have my face turned to the side in the photo because I tripped over the cable cover on the way to our seats and ended up with a cut lip. Turned into a nice fat bruise the next day. No pictures of that!
Toto was great and my husband even got the attention of Steve Lukather because he (my hubby) brought his book, The Gospel According to Luke, and waved it in the air. I mean he (Steve), looked in our direction and nodded so I’m gonna say we got his attention – LOL.
Journey was great too. They did 19 of their hits including my favorite Journey song, Faithfully.
I wish I could have been this close when Steve Perry was with the group. Still, it was a great night and we were even interviewed on our way in by a reporter from the Chronicle but I guess our comments weren’t newsworthy enough to make it into the article. Anyway, I guess you could say concerts are our number one date nights.
Dressing up in costume is another fun thing to do on a date. We went to a Halloween party early in our relationship. He was a pirate and I was his wench. I made my costume. Old time western style photos are my favorite. It’s been a while since we’ve done one of those so maybe I can talk him into doing another one. I know that photo booths are a big hit at weddings as well. Something about becoming another person for a while is exciting. My blog is rated PG or I might talk about some other types of costumes too…
And last but not least is cards. I mentioned putting baseball cards in order but we also played with a regular deck of cards. We used to play canasta for hours. That’s really a cheap date, right?
Have I given you any new ideas for date nights so far? Let’s see what I can come up with for D. See you tomorrow.
