Black Keys

1354420396-the-black-keys-perform-live-at-palaolimpico-in-turin_1649191Just a quick update on the Black Keys concert we saw in Hartford last night. Had a really good time even though the venue is way bigger than the places we usually go to (it holds about 30 000 people, 7500 in seats and 22500 more on the lawn) The seats we had were great though, only six rows back. We were able to get them in a pre-sale from a local radio station when the venue was first announced/added to the tour. Very cool. 

Left work around 3pm to drive up to Hartford for a leisurly pre-concert dinner at the City Steam Brewery Cafe. Always a fun place to go. They have a great Happy Hour as well. Really wish the place was closer and more convenient to get to. Oh well. 

After we left City Steam we headed over to the Comcast Theater. It was my first time at this venue and it is definitely massive. Concession stands that remind of a big stadium and the whole layout is just crazy big. Had some over priced wine in a plastic cup while watching the opening band perform. 

The show was definitely a lot of fun and went by very fast. Getting out of that venue was of course anything but fast. First the mile long trek back to the car where we had to remember where we even parked in the sea of cars in a huge gravel/field space, then inching slowly forward in line trying to actually get out. We finally made it home a little before 1am. Needless to say I am not really all that awake for work at this particular moment. :) 

Mail Update: Received letters/still owe a response to: Laura/Spain, Jessica/DE, Charles/TN and Lotte/Denmark.
